A search of land is being carried out by gardaí investigating the disappearance of schoolgirl Mary Boyle.
Officers from the garda investigation team in the Northern Region this morning began a dig in an area near where the six-year-old disappeared in Cashelard near Ballyshannon in 1977.
RTE have reported that Gardaí state the search had been planned for some time and that it is being carried out at the request of the family.
The area was previously searched but nothing of evidential value was found.
Earlier this week, gardaí confirmed that a second review of the case is to be carried out by the Serious Crime Review Team.
A march in memory of Mary will take place in Ballyshannon tomorrow which hundreds of people expected to attend the rally.
The march will end at Ballyshannon Garda station where a number of speeches are expected to take place.
Organsier Naomi Brady said she hoped as many people as possible would attend the event which she said may jog the memory of anybody with information on Mary’s case.Tags:
