Gardai believe they have credible evidence to begin the search in south Kildare.

Gardai are to begin searches in south Kildare this morning as part of an investigation into the disappearance of women from the Leinster area.

It’s part of the cold case inquiry into the murder of Deirdre Jacob who vanished over 20 years ago.

Deirdre Jacob was just 18 years old when she vanished without a trace near her home in Newbridge in July 1998.

Her case was upgraded to a murder inquiry a few years ago and as part of that investigation – gardai are to begin searching a wooded area in Usk Little in South Kildare this morning.

Gardai are hoping the search could progress the investigation into other women who disappeared in Leinster like that of 21-year-old Jo Jo Dullard.

The Kilkenny woman vanished in Moone in Kildare while hitching a lift home from Dublin in 1995.

The cold case searches will be extensive and are likely to take weeks involving teams from the Garda Technical Bureau, Forensic Science Ireland, and the garda dog unit.
