Tina Satchwell © Independent.ie Tina Satchwell Tina disappeared from her home in Youghal, which is about a 20-minute drive from Castlemartyr, nearly a year ago.

Last week, gardaí received information leading them to the parkland. It is believed that a person acting suspiciously was spotted exiting the woods on the night Tina Satchwell was supposed to have gone missing.

Gardaí believe this account to be credible and are now focusing their attention on the Castlemartyr area. Nearby CCTV, where available, is being reviewed. In some cases, the CCTV from the night may have been overwritten by newer files due to the length of time which has elapsed.

While senior gardaí would not comment on the logistics of the search, it is understood officers will first focus on an area of grassland which was closest to where the witness alleges they saw a person leaving the woodlands. This is an area of between four and six acres in size.
