Catherine Gowing

DETECTIVES investigating the disappearance of vet Catherine Gowing have established a further sighting of the 37-year-old at a Deeside supermarket.

Police have revealed that Catherine, who left her work at Evans Veterinary Practice in Clayton Road, Mold, at around 7pm on Friday, has also been seen entering the Asda Queensferry store at 8.06pm that night and she left at 8.39pm.

Catherine, of Cae Isa in New Brighton, was wearing blue jeans, a light brown / khaki fleece zipped top with white sleeves and white side panels. On her feet she was wearing plain black flat shoes and her brown hair was tied up.

She had a bright brown saddle bag across her shoulder and body and was carrying a plastic Asda bag and a pizza type box.

Detective Superintendent John Hanson said: “Our priority is to trace Catherine and we would urge anyone who has seen her or her Renault Clio, bearing the Irish registration plates - 00D 99970 to contact the North Wales Police incident room on 101.

“This is totally out of character for Catherine and the public’s assistance in the search cannot be emphasised enough.”

Anyone who may have information relating to Catherine’s whereabouts or who may have seen the plum / burgundy car is urged to call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Detectives interviewing a 46 year old Gwynedd man on suspicion of her murder have this morning been granted a 36 hour extension to question him by magistrates sitting at Prestatyn court.

North Wales Police is due to hold a second press conference at 3pm today (Thursday) at its headquarters in Colwyn Bay, attended by members of Catherine's family.
