Footage of missing toddler

1 min read

Nearly six days of trauma at the disappearance of their two year-old daughter Aisling is taking its toll on the Symes family and they, along with neighbours in Longburn Rd, have asked for some privacy today.

In a further effort to jog people's memories of possible sightings of Aisling, Police have uploaded 10 seconds of footage of Aisling dancing at a family home recently, onto the Police website.

Anyone who may have seen her since Monday, October 5 at 5.15pm, is strongly urged to call the 0800 4 AISLING - 0800 4 2475 464.

"While it is heartbreaking footage to see given the current circumstances, we feel it humanises Aisling even more than a still photograph can and shows her in other clothes to that which she has been seen in on posters and in the media over the past five days," Inspector Gary Davey said.

"Staff are working tirelessly again today on several phases of the investigation into Aisling's disappearance and our last confirmed sighting is still the one on Longburn Rd when seen with an Asian woman who had a dog with her.

"While several people of interest have been profiled by the intelligence section and suspect team, we have not had any strong information that might lead us directly to Aisling."
