A silver BMW car, which is believed to belong to the couple, was found yesterday near Carne beach.

Gardaí are now carrying out searches near Rosslare Harbour, assisted by local volunteers, and members of Our Lady’s Island in Wexford.

Bernard Devine (53) is described as being 5’7” in height with a slim build. He is bald with brown eyes and a beard.

Carol Devine (53) is described as being 5’3” in height with a slim build. She has blonde hair and green eyes.
