A man has been arrested by gardai investigating the disappearance of a woman three years ago.

Giedre Raguckaite, who lived in Dundalk, was last seen in May, 2018 at a house in Layton, Co Meath.

This morning officers arrested a man who is currently detained at a garda station, according to the Garda Press Office

He is being held under Section 42, Criminal Justice Act, 2006 and can be detained for up to 24 hours, it was stated.

Members of her family have campaign for help in finding Ms Raguckaite since her disappearance three years ago.

On the anniversary of her disappearance this year her sister Zivile Raguckaite told of her love and loss as she marked three years since her sister was last seen.

“Today exactly three years have passed since my sister was last seen alive. Three years, and still do not pass even one day without thinking about it, three years and there are still more questions than answers.”

“Three years, and there is still no proper closure - only deep pain and emptiness in our hearts...the pain that will never ever go away. Rest in peace, little sister, wherever your beautiful soul may be, you are always in our hearts.”

She was seen at a house in Laytown, Co Meath with two men that night around 11pm, and the last sighting of her was leaving that house with two men at 1.45am.
