Missing Galway woman update

“We still haven’t found her.”

The daughter of missing Galway woman Teresa Tannian has urged the public to keep an eye out for her in a new update.

The 84-year-old went missing on Saturday, May 25, and Gardaí have been looking for her whereabouts since.

Taking to social media, Teresa’s daughter Laura said: “Despite extensive searches in Killina involving Gardaí, the Garda helicopter, drones, sniffer dogs, Civil Defence, volunteers, neighbours, friends, and family, we still haven’t found her.

“We’ve also received possible sightings from around the country, but unfortunately, none have led us to her.

“We are incredibly grateful for all the support and assistance we’ve received so far. Please continue to share this post and keep an eye out for any information that might help us find her.”
