    The recent search for 67 year old Peggy Mangan was one of the most poignant in recent years. Peggy & her dog Casper went for a walk two weeks ago from her home in Terenure, but sadly did not return. Peggy had Alzheimer's & was found near Ballymun with Casper standing vigilantly by her side.  Peggy's son Jon joins Miriam in studio.
