The missing mother who is also a nurse has been missing since Saturday night, Ruth Maguire, 30, was last seen at 11.30pm while out celebrating in Carlingford in the Republic of Ireland, Belfast Live reports.
Ms Maguire is originally from Belfast but lives in the village of Newcastle, County Down.
Her friend Seana McMullan posted on Facebook on Sunday: “It’s now been a full 24 hours since Ruth Maguire has been seen.
“She was separated from our hen party in Carlingford and we assumed that she would return by the morning after a few of the girls searched for her.”
The post adds: “Her phone has not been active since 12pm last night.”
Her friend Katrina O’Hare told Belfast Live: “We thought she was going to head home to Newcastle because she had said to a bouncer she was going to get to Newcastle from here, but her partner and her kids were at her mum’s house in Ligoniel.
He drove down today and she was not there.”
