He is hoping that with the passage of time, someone who knows something will now have the courage to come forward as the trail has gone cold.

Garda sources said that some calls were received since Tina disappeared in March 2017, with people reporting possible sightings of her, but follow-ups to the calls proved fruitless.

Gardaí said that calls have not been received recently about the missing woman.

Fermoy native Tina was last seen at her home in Youghal by Richard on March 20, 2017. He reported her missing at Fermoy Garda station on March 24 after his attempts to locate her failed.

He said he returned from Dungarvan to discover she was missing. She did not take her phone and her bank account has not been touched. However, Mr Satchwell believes she took up to €26,000 in cash that the couple had in their home when she left. He said she had also taken two suitcases.

Two suitcases found in the Tesco car park in the town several months afterwards were not hers.

Earlier this year, a massive search was undertaken in woods in Castlemartyr but no trace of the missing woman was found.

Search

The search of Mitchel’s Wood took almost two weeks last March and the area was cordoned off during the operation.

However, nothing of significance was uncovered.

Similarly, dives off Youghal last summer and searches on the Golf Link Road by members of the Divisional Search Team and the Garda Dog Unit also resulted in no leads.
