Gardaí investigating the 20-year mystery of the disappearance of Deirdre Jacob will begin a dig at a site in Kildare today.
Deirdre Jacob was last seen on July 28th 1998 near her home in Newbridge, Kildare.
She is one of at least six women who vanished in the east of the country in the 1990s.
Gardaí upgraded her disappearance to a murder investigation in 2018, and sources have confirmed that members of the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation travelled to the UK to interview a suspect.
During this re-examination they re-interviewed witnesses who were also part of the original file.
During the re-examination, credible information was developed and that has led Gardaí to woodland in Usk Little on the Wicklow and Kildare border.
“This is good, solid information and will see a detailed forensic dig take place at the site,” a source said.
