Connolly's daughter Jade also called on the public to try and "jog their memories" if they were on the beach on the day of her disappearance. 

"This beach was active that day, people walked by my mam," Jade Connolly said on Friday afternoon. 

"I just appeal to anyone who has maybe photographs from the beach that day, or any dashcam footage or maybe even CCTV if they are in a house nearby."
