Deirdre Jacob's dad: I hope they find Ciara

Deirdre Jacob dad
The dad of missing Co Kildare woman Deirdre Jacob said he hopes gardai find the remains of Ciara Breen in their ongoing search in Co Louth.
Specialist officers combing a bog near Dundalk for over two weeks believe the teenager (17) - who vanished in 1997, is secretly buried there.
But Michael Jacob, whose 18-year-old daughter Deirdre disappeared near her Newbridge home in 1998, said Ciara's family deserve some closure to ease their pain.
He told "Of course I hope the search has a positive outcome because it's been a long time for her family.
"Every family with a missing loved one needs a body to grieve over and a grave to visit."
Michael and his wife Bernadette made a major TV appeal on Deirdre's disappearance on RTE's Crimecall programme in April.
He said at the time: "You know, is there someone out there that knows something about the whole thing? It just never goes away."
Bernadette also told the programme: "We’re as wise today as we were the day Deirdre went missing, we have absolutely nothing to go on and it’s very hard to continue."
