A search at a site in Milford, Co Donegal, linked to the disappearance of Deirdre O'Flaherty ten years ago has ended with gardaí saying nothing has been found to further the investigation.

The 46-year-old doctor, also known by her maiden name of Deirdre Donnelly, disappeared while staying at a holiday home with her family in January 2009.

Her car was found at Kinnego Beach.

The search carried out by members of the Donegal Divisional Search Team and Garda Technical Bureau, along with private contractors, began on Tuesday.

Today is the tenth anniversary of the disappearance of Dr O'Flaherty.

In January 2012, three years after she disappeared, the High Court in Belfast ruled it was satisfied that Dr O'Flaherty had died.

The judge used new legislation for the first time - the Presumption of Death Act - in Northern Ireland to declare he was satisfied that Dr O'Flaherty had drowned after going into the sea in Co Donegal.

The court was told she had suffered from depression.

Gardaí have renewed their appeal for anyone who may have information in relation to Dr O'Flaherty’s disappearance to contact Buncrana Garda Station on 0749320540 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666111.
