THE mother of missing expat teen Amy Fitzpatrick is aiming to be well enough to kick-off a fresh investigation into her daughter’s disappearance in June.
Audrey Mahon said she is planning to return to Spain in June to ‘kick off’ a new investigation into Amy’s disappearance, some nine years after Amy went missing on January 1 2008.
Currently bedridden with a liver disease, Audrey – whose husband Dave Mahon is currently in jail after killing her son Dean Fitzpatrick in a Dublin street fight – recently revealed that the fate of her children has forced her into a life of drinking.
“Not so long ago I was just drinking, and sleeping, and drinking and not eating until eventually I ended up in hospital,” she said.
“I just didn’t care any more. I always had a drink, we all had a drink. It did get worse after Amy went missing and it got twice as bad after Dean.”
In May,Mahon was found guilty of killing Dean, the older brother of missing teenager Amy, on May 26, 2013.
Last month, Amy’s father Christopher Fitzpatrick said he hoped to Irish and Spanish police would look into ‘new leads’ surrounding the case.
