THE search for a woman missing in Cork for over a week has been stood following the discovery of a body.
Maureen O’Connor was reported missing from her home in Skehill, Glengarrif since Wednesday, October 25.
Gardai issued a missing persons appeal on Monday, October 30.
Confirming that her family were "concerned for her welfare", they urged anyone with information on the 69-year-old’s whereabouts to get in touch.
The search has since been stood down, as police officers have discovered a body.
In a statement issued last night they said: “Following the discovery of a body earlier today, Wednesday, November 1, the missing person appeal for Maureen O’Connor has been stood down.”
They added: “No further information is available at this time.
“An Garda Síochána would like to thank the media and the public for their assistance.”
