POLICE continue to search for more evidence in the Catherine Gowing murder investigation.

Search teams are still out following two separate discoveries of human remains belonging to the 37-year-old vet.

A spokesman for North Wales Police said: “We continue to search in various unspecified locations in the area for evidence relating to the Catherine Gowing murder investigation.”

Remains belonging to the New Brighton, near Mold, woman, who is originally from Co. Offaly in Ireland, were found near the River Dee in Higher Ferry, Chester, last Friday.

The grim discovery came two days after the first remains were found in a shallow pool known as the Lum next to Manor Road, Sealand.

Miss Gowing was last seen on Friday, October 12, at the Asda supermarket in Queensferry.

Clive Sharp, 46, of Bethesda, Gwynedd, has been charged with her murder and was remanded in custody until January 7 when he is due to enter his plea.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Pierce repeated his appeal for any information about any sightings of Miss Gowing’s Irish registered Renault Clio 00D 99970 and Sharp’s black Volvo S40 AG58 JHE since Friday, October 12, and particularly in the Sealand and River Dee areas.

He added: “The search for further remains and any evidence to assist this investigation continues and I would again ask the local community if you have seen any suspicious activity or person in Manor Road, Sealand, or on the banks of the River Dee or have any information which may assist our investigation to contact police.”

Anyone one with information should call the police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
