Richard also said Tina took over €26,000 in cash, proceeds from the sale of a house in Fermoy. He has said the four-day wait to report her missing was because he thought she was looking for some time to ‘get her head straight’.
Tina is also a much-loved and missed sister, aunt and niece.
Reports that a woman matching Tina’s description had been seen with another person led to a 12-day search at Mitchel’s Wood, Bridgetown, in Castlemartyr. But nothing was found.
