GARDAÍ HAVE requested the public's assistance in locating an elderly woman who has been missing for almost a month.
72-year-old Monica Ahearne, from the Tallaght area of Dublin, has not been seen since she vanished from her home on Thursday, 13 February 2020.
Monica is described in a Garda statement as being 5'4" in height, with a thin build and with grey hair and green eyes.
A photograph of the missing woman, released by Gardaí via her family, can be viewed below.
It is not known what Monica was last wearing at the time of her disappearance.
Both Gardaí and Monica's family are said to be concerned for her welfare and have requested that people in Dublin and beyond keep an eye out for her.
A search conducted by Gardaí as well as the local community is now underway.
