The disappearance of missing Dublin woman Bernadette Connolly will be featured on tonight’s episode of Crimecall.

The 45-year-old, from Swords, has not been seen since Friday, January 7th.

Bernadette was last seen when she was dropped by taxi at the carpark of the Shoreline Hotel in Donabate and walking towards the entrance to Donabate Beach.

Her case will feature on tonight’s episode of Crimecall, a monthly RTÉ programme that appeals to the public to help An Garda Síochána solve ongoing investigations.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday night, Bernadette’s concerned daughter Jade wrote: “My mam Bernadette Connolly's case will be highlighted on Crimecall tomorrow at 9:35pm on RTE One.

“I'm still appealing to anyone who was on the Donabate beach on Friday the 7th of January or the Malahide side looking over.

“Does anyone remember seeing a woman with a hot pink towel?”

Jade previously appealed to the public for information on her mum’s disappearance in a heart-breaking plea.

“People are asking me what they can do for me, if people can go with their friends, with their husbands, with their families, with their sister, if they're out and about or off work, if you have a few minutes to spare... I suppose my main thing is to get this message out,” she said.

“Try and get a look at the woman, if you see anyone acting strangely - please just contact the Gardai.”

She thanked the Shoreline Hotel in Donabate for sharing CCTV footage that captured her mother on the beach at 12.38pm on the day she vanished.

“I want to know how she got there,” she said, asking for any taxi drivers who may have driven a woman matching her mother’s description to the beach last Friday.

“The slightest bit of information will help us try and piece the puzzle together.”

“I’m very confident in the Garda, that they are doing everything that they absolutely can.”

“Keep a fire lit under this for me,” she begged. “I don’t want her forgotten tomorrow; I need to keep this fresh.”
