The man arrested yesterday in connection with the disappearance of Dundalk teenager Ciara Breen has been released without charge.
The man in his 50s was detained in the Dundalk area shortly after 7.30am yesterday and was taken to Drogheda Garda Station for questioning.
A file on the matter will now be sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Then aged 17, Ciara went missing from her home in Bachelor’s Walk on the night of February 12th 1997 and hasn’t been seen since.
However, Gardaí confirmed late last year that two people had recently come forward with historical sightings of Ciara. Following a renewed appeal for information before Christmas, further people came forward with information, with an anonymous letter about her disappearance being sent to Gardaí.
Anyone with information can contact Dundalk Garda station on 042 9388400, or Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666111.
