Further remains found in search for Irishwoman
POLICE IN Wales searching for missing Irishwoman Catherine Gowing (37) last night sealed off a second area where further human remains were found.
An off-duty Cheshire police officer discovered the remains on the banks of the river Dee in Chester. A postmortem and forensic examination of the scene will be carried out.
The discovery came as police began a search of a house in Sealand, Flintshire, close to where human remains were found on Thursday in a shallow pool after searches in fields two miles from where the Co Offaly woman’s Renault Clio was found burnt out at a disused quarry.
Tests are being carried out and acting North East Wales coroner John Gittens has been informed and is expected to open an inquest.
The latest discovery is about three miles from the first. The remains have yet to be formally identified.
The Irish vet was last seen on Friday, October 12th, leaving Asda Supermarket in Queensferry.
Clive Sharp (46) originally from Bethesda, Gwynedd, has been charged with her murder and has been remanded in custody until January 7th.
A spokesman for North Wales Police said Ms Gowing’s family had been informed of the discovery.
