On the anniversary of her disappearance this year, Missing Persons Helpline Ireland remembered the young woman and her father John who died in 2009 with no answers as to what happened to his daughter.
It had been believed that Annie went missing after a night out in Johnnie Fox’s pub in Glencullen, Co Dublin 28 years ago.
However, Missing Persons Helpline Ireland said in their post that it has ‘now emerged that investigators believe Annie was not in Johnny Foxes Pub in the village of Glencullen the night of her disappearance and they feel it was a case of mistaken identity.’© Provided by Evoke.ie Pic: Rolling News
Speaking of Annie’s disappearance in 2016, her mother Nancy described it as a ‘terrible loss’ and said she now just wants to get her daughter’s body back.
‘It’s been a long time, such a very long time. I’m pretty sure, you know, that I’ll never see her again. But I guess my greatest wish would be to be able to take her home and have a grave that I could go to.
‘So, to find out what happened to her really would be a great gift at this point. It really would,’ she said.© Provided by Evoke.ie TRACKER DOGS HUNT FOR ANNIE McCARRICK OUTSIDE FOXS PUB. 18/4/1993 PIC EAMONN FARRELL. Pic: Rolling News
Annie had moved to Ireland to study and was living in an apartment in Sandymount in Dublin with two friends.
She told her friends on the morning of her disappearance that she was considering going for a walk in the Wicklow or Glencullen area.
