A woman who allegedly disappeared in her Dublin home has been found alive and well.
Carole Ann Bicknell disappeared from her home on May 25.
Ms Bicknel said she left her home around 4.30am on the day of the disappearance.
“I think she was just tired and that’s when she left.
She didn’t want to go back in.
I’ve been on a few holidays in the past year, so I was a bit worried.”
Then I came home and I thought ‘Oh my God, she’s not in her room’,” she said.”
The neighbours saw me with the door open and they thought it was a house fire.
“Ms Biknell said the first thing she did when she returned home was to look in her bedroom to see if she had left anything behind.”
It wasn’t anything.
I just didn’t see anything,” she said, adding she has no memory of leaving the house.”
There was no smoke coming out of the house and it was very dark.
I couldn’t see the door or the windows.
I was just completely out of it.
“Ms Loughlin said she was devastated when she found Ms Bickwnel’s body in the basement.”
We have to accept that someone could have gone into our house and killed her,” she told The Irish Sun.”
When I got back to my room, I started to cry.
I thought that I’d never see her again.
I didn’t think anything would ever happen to her.
“Ms O’Brien said her son was traumatised by the incident.”
He was terrified and it wasn’t something that he ever thought would happen.
He thought that it was some prank or something.
I feel sorry for him because I was terrified, and it never happened,” she added.
Ms Lighlin has appealed for anyone who was close to the house or who may have seen Ms Bikney’s body to come forward.”
If anyone saw her, or heard her, please come forward and come forward with information.
If you have any information, call the garda station at 612 851 7400 or Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000,” she wrote.”
She was a very quiet, kind woman and a good mother.
“The search for Ms Bikkney continues.
