The best friend of Lithuanian woman, Giedre Raguckaite who disappeared from a house in Laytown, County Meath, four years ago today, has pleaded for anyone who knows anything about that happened to come forward as her friend is owed a Christian burial.

Gedvilé Hibner, has been highlighting the disappearance from her base in the UK and is begging everyone to redouble their efforts in the search and admits she has come to terms with the probability her friend is dead, "I am asking people to look for her still, I am asking this of the police and everyone around the Laytown area.

"We know we will never find her alive any more (sic) but at least let us have a grave to place flowers in and pay our respects at."

Two Lithuanian men were last seen with an unconscious Giedre on May 29, 2018 at a house in Laytown.

One of the suspects in the case took his own life in January last year, which Gedvilé feared could bring a halt to any progress in the investigation.

“I think the person who died last year will be blamed for all of it that's my opinion, that's what I think is going to happen” she claimed.

It appears there are those out there who wish to stop Gedvilés hunt, as she has received threats via social media, she revealed, "I also had a lot of horrible vile, messages, from people trying to frighten me into stopping my attempts to find Giedre," she said.

Initially treated as missing person case, Giedre's disappearance was upgraded to a murder investigation six months later in November 2018.

Gedvilé added, "Somebody knows where she is and they must be struggling with their conscience as four years is a long time to keep such a big secret, so I am pleading with them to, even confidentially, to tell the police or tell someone where she is, please do the decent thing and let us bury a good woman."
