Appeal for information to find missing Clondalkin woman

by Padraig Conlon

Gardai this week renewed their appeal to help find a Clondalkin woman who went missing nine years ago.

Ronanstown gardai made their appeal to the public for help on what was the anniversary of the disappearance of Esra Uyrun.

Esra (pictured), originally from Turkey, was 38 when she was last seen leaving her home in Collinstown Grove, Clondalkin, at around 7.15am on February 23, 2011.

She left her house in a grey Renault Twingo car, registration number 08-D-23067. The car was later found in Bray.

Esra is described as being 5’3” in height, with dark hair and green eyes. When last seen, she was wearing black leggings, white Nike trainers, and a dark top.

A set of car keys with a photo of Esra and her son Emin on the keyring were handed in to a chip shop in Neilstown, very near to her Clondalkin home, six months after her disappearance.

Gardai and Esra’s family are seeking to locate her, and earlier this week her sister, Berna Fidan, made a heartfelt appeal on the Ray D’Arcy Show on RTE Radio 1.

She said: “[Esra’s] just a beautiful soul; she loved people and she loved making people happy.

“It was just a shock to everybody when she just disappeared like that – none of it made any sense at all.

Anyone with any information on Esra is asked to contact Ronanstown Garda Station at 01 666 7700, the Garda Confidential Line at 1800 666 111, or any garda station.
