A 46-YEAR-OLD man has been charged with the murder of a missing Irish woman who has not been since 2012.
Charlotte Murray, who was originally from Omagh in Co. Tyrone but had been living in Moy, was 34 when she disappeared five years ago.
She has not been in contact with her friends or family since October or November 2012.
Ms Murray wasn’t reported missing until May 2013.
The arrested man was charged with murder by the PSNI on Wednesday and is due to appear at Strabane Magistrates’ court later today.
Earlier this month, Ms Murray’s family made a heartbreaking plea for the person who “took her life” to come forward.
Issuing her emotional appeal for information, Charlotte's twin sister Denise Murray said: “Since our sister went missing in late 2012 our emotions have been all over the place.
“It’s heartbreaking knowing Charlotte is out there somewhere and we can’t do anything to help her.
“Hope has been our friend in this nightmare so far and we cling on to it. Guilt is one emotion we all feel.
"We feel guilty about going on with our everyday lives as Charlotte will never get the opportunity to continue on with hers.”
She added: “Charlotte has missed so many family events and celebration and that constantly reminds us that Charlotte is not here with us.
“Christmas is a really sad time for our family also – we’ll be spending our sixth Christmas without her this year.
“Someone has taken her life and they know what they have done. We are appealing for that person to come forward. Please find the decency to tell us where she is.
"We just want to say goodbye.”
