Letters used in bid to find missing Fiona.

Byline: PATSY McCARDLE

THE mail service is to be used to help find an Irish woman who went missing four years ago, it was revealed yesterday.

Envelopes with printed details of mum-to-be Fiona Pender, 25, who was last seen in August 1996 are to be circulated.

Fiona was seven and a half months pregnant when she went missing in her home town of Tullamore, Co Offaly.

Her close friend Emer Condron has revealed details of the scheme which could help jog memories - and provide an important clue to Fiona's whereabouts.

Despite a search of rivers, lakes and woods throughout the Midlands, no trace was ever found of the woman.

Miss Condron said: "We are providing batches of special business and personal envelopes which will go into circulation in the Midlands.

"They give details of Fiona's disappearance and we are hoping it may jog somebody's memory.

"There must be someone out there who can throw light on what happened.

"If she is dead we want to be able to find her body and give her a proper burial."

A Garda spokesman said: "We think this is an excellent scheme.

"If anybody can provide information that may be of help they can contact us on a special phone line 1800 666 111."

The envelopes are being made available through shops and stores in towns throughout the Midlands.
