team advisors speaking from the search site in Alltami said “The
search is still very much ongoing and today our teams are focusing
on some woodland in the south section of the search area.
“The terrain is very difficult with loose
shale, thick undergrowth and some very boggy and marshy areas and
so we are taking our time ensuring safety as well as not missing
any opportunity in discovering anything which may lead us to find
Catherine Gowing has not been seen since
approximately 8.40pm on Friday 12th October 2012 when
she was sighted on CCTV leaving Asda Supermarket in Queensferry.
Since that time 46 year old Clive Sharpe has been charged

and Sharpe’s black Volvo S40 AG58 JHE between Friday
12th October and Monday 15th October.
Sergeant Parkes concluded, “We will continue
to search as long as there are valid lines of enquiry and those
include any sightings of Catherine’s Renault or Sharp’s Volvo or
any of the individuals themselves. That is why it is so
important to think hard about your whereabouts over the weekend
12th to 15th October and if you saw, or think
you saw something which may assist our investigation then please
call Police on 101”
Senior Investigating Officer DCI Mark Pierce
added “I am very grateful to members of the community for their
assistance but I am certain there are others out there who may feel
what they have to say is of little value. However we need to
build up as comprehensive a picture as possible, not just to help
us find Catherine but also in providing a full investigation to the
Crown Prosecution Service. If you have any information please
phone the Police.”
DCI Pierce confirmed Catherine’s family remain
in north Wales supported by Police Family Liaison Officers and are
updated daily on the progress of the investigation.
