Gardaí have reissued their appeal for information on the disappearance of a young woman from Waterford city 28 years ago.

Imelda Keenan was 22 years old when she went missing after leaving the apartment she shared with her boyfriend on William Street, on January 3rd, 1994.

Originally from Mountmellick, Co. Laois, she had just completed a computer course at the Central Institute in Waterford and moved into a flat with her boyfriend shortly before her disappearance.

At 1.30pm that day, Imelda left the apartment and told her partner that she was going to the post office.

She was last seen crossing the road by the Tower Hotel on the corner of Lombard Street by a doctor’s secretary who knew her.

She was wearing a white jumper, leopard print ski pants, a blue denim jacket, and black shoes at the time.
