Donegal Search for Missing Walker
Brian Murray of Donegal Mountain Rescue was on the radio "News at One" today to give details of the search for Kelly Jones, a 41 year old American (see photo). She was last sighted by a local person at 5.30pm on Saturday 17th September near Glencolumbcille village heading north on a track towards "the glen head". She had been in a hostel in the Malinmore area for about ten days and had been doing various local trails. Personal effects and jewellery remain at the hostel. The Donegal Mountain Rescue group was called out at 2.30pm on Sunday. Locals say that Kelly Jones seemed to be more geared for paths and trails rather than mountain walking as such. The search has concentrated mostly on paths all the way from Port down as far as Slieve League. The search has included nine units of the Killybegs coastguard, locals have been using quads, and the Slieve League Walking group have been helping. The Sligo rescue helicopter has been out searching for 2 days. Northern Ireland rescue dogs were due to arrive this afternoon. Search resumes in the morning. David Murray, of Donegal Mountain Rescue, said: 'If she has been out for two nights there is a strong possibility of hypothermia.
'It is a difficult terrain. 'We are right up against the clock,' he said.
Ms Jones is originally from Texas, but has been working in the catering industry in North Carolina.
She is 5ft 6ins and was last seen wearing a green jacket, black trousers and red/maroon hat.
The U.S. embassy in Dublin has been contacted and her father is preparing to fly to Ireland to assist with the search.
He gave permission for Ms Jones's passport photograph to be released in the hope someone may have seen her since the last sighting on Saturday.
