Gardaí searching 3-acre wooded area in Chapelizod for body of Kildare man Trevor Deely

Gardaí have stated that they are centering the search for missing Naas man Trevor Deely around a wooded area in Chapelizod.

It emerged this morning that Gardaí from Pearse Street were carrying out their most significant search yet in the open case of the former Dublin-based worker, and they have been examining a wooded area near the River Liffey in Chapelizod that is three acres in size.

The search is expected to last at least a couple of days.

Mr Deely has been missing since December 8 2000 when he disappeared following his attendance at a Christmas party in Dublin. His last known whereabouts was close to his work office where he left and walked in the direction of Haddington Road, close to Baggot Street Bridge.

The search for information gathered new momentum earlier this year when new technology allowed Gardaí to forensically examine CCTV footage from the Haddington Road area, which showed a man dressed in black speaking to Mr Deely outside his workplace before he vanished. The man then appeared to follow the 22-year-old up the street as he walked away from his office.

Gardaí are continuing to appeal to the public for information however, and anyone with information can call Crimestoppers on 1800 25 00 25.
