The mother of missing Donegal schoolgirl Mary Boyle has said she does not want to die without knowing what happened to her daughter.
Tragic Mary went missing on March 18th, 1977 when she visited family at Cashelard, Ballyshannon aged just six.
She was last seen wandering across a field to a neighbour’s house but then disappeared into thin air.
Devastated Ann Boyle, now aged 75, was speaking to mark Missing Person Day.
Ann said she would give anything for somebody to put her out of her misery of what happened to her beautiful daughter.
She said: “My husband died 15 years ago not knowing what happened to our daughter and I don’t want this to happen to me.
“All I am asking for is anyone with the slightest bit of information to please tell us where she is. This can be done in confidence and also anonymously — I just want this to end.
“Our nightmare has been going on far too long now and it’s never too late for someone to do the right thing.
“I’m disappointed I won’t get to meet the other families today because of Covid 19 but we have to keep fighting.”Tags:
