Bernadette Connolly's daughter shares update as search enters week six
"I continue to keep my head high"
The daughter of missing Dublin woman Bernadette Connolly has shared an update.
Her only daughter Jade, has been working tirelessly to raise awareness about her mother's disappearance.
As the search for her mum enters the sixth week, Jade said she is trying to keep her head up.
Jade explained she needed to take some time to be with her family, especially her grandparents.
"Thanks for all the lovely messages and for checking in to see how I am," she wrote.
Jade said she is doing as okay as one can in this situation.
"The first few weeks of this was very intense (still is) but I needed to take some time to myself."
"I needed to be with my grandparents," she shared.
"We are all taking it day by day and doing what we can," she explained.
Jade added that a man gave her some helpful words of wisdom.
"A lovely man said 'at some time in life we all have a cross to bear' and this is mine," Jade said.
"I continue to keep my head high and stay strong for her."
"I miss her so much," Jade added.
Jade's mother Bernadette has been missing since January 7th.
49-year-old Bernadette visited her parent's house in Swords Manor before getting a taxi to the Shoreline Hotel in Donabate.
She arrived there just before midday.
The last known sighting of her was on Donabate Beach.
Bernadette's jacket, phone, and bag were found at the other end of the beach, closer to Malahide.
Jade previously asked people not to speculate about her mother's case.
"To the minority- who think they have it all figured out to what happened- you know nothing!
"You don’t know her and you don’t know me."
Anyone with information has been urged to contact Gardaí.
