THE family of missing Irish girl Amy Fitzpatrick have marked her 27th birthday with a picture of her as a little girl.
A family-run Facebook page, ‘Missing Amy Fitzpatrick, released a photo of a young Amy smiling and wearing a communion dress.
Accompanying the picture was a message: “27 today…… We miss you with all our hearts.”
Those commenting and liking the post wished Amy well on her birthday and said they were ‘thinking’ of her parents.
Amy vanished when she was 15 years old as she walked to her home on Mijas costa on New Year’s Eve in 2007.
Originally from Dublin, Amy was living with her mother Audrey and stepfather Dave Mahon at the time of her disappearance.
Mahon is now in prison for the manslaughter of Amy’s brother Dean, who he claimed in court at the time had run onto his knife in an ‘attempted suicide’.
