The husband of missing woman Tina Satchwell has made an emotional appeal for her to get in touch.

Tina went missing from her home in Youghal, Co Cork on March 20th this year.

Her husband, Richard, describes the last time he saw her.

Speaking on RTÉ's 'Crimecall' on Monday night, he says: "She came downstairs. I gave her a cup of tea and a slice of toast. Then she asked if I'd go over to Dungarvan. I gave her a peck, and said I'd see her in a couple of hours", he says

When he returned he found the house empty, except for Tina's two dogs Ruby and Heidi.

He says this seemed strange because Tina went everywhere with the dogs.

Richard also describes noticing two suitcases missing from their house.

Four days later, having made enquiries with her family and still with no word from her, he contacted gardaí.

Three months later, there has been no sighting of her.

Tina's aunt, Margaret Maher, says it is very unlike her niece to disappear like this.

"It’s very out of character for her. I wouldn’t feel she’d go anywhere on her own.

"She’s not a person who would do that. All the family has been contacted and no one in the family has seen or heard from her", she says.

Her cousin, Sarah Howard, describes Tina as a striking character, who was well known around Youghal for her personal sense of style.

"She loved her fashion. She always had something stylish on, no matter where she was going. If she was going to get bread or milk she’d have something stylish on".

Richard appeals directly to his wife: "Tina come home. There’s nobody mad at you. My arms are open.

"The pets are missing you. I just can’t go on not knowing. Even if you just ring the guards, let people know that you’re alright."
