Tina Satchwell: Missing Person (2017)


On the 20th of March 2017, Tina Satchwell (47) was last seen at the home in Youghal, County Cork, Ireland. She was last seen by her husband Richard when she asked him to leave and go on an errand. She was not at home when he returned and he 'assumed' she had gone to stay with family. He did not report her missing until 4 days later. When describing that day he said, “It was the same as any other morning – she got up and I made her a cup of tea and a slice of toast. It is something I will never forget,” he said.


“It wasn’t unusual for her to turn around and ask me to go shopping. I thought nothing of it at the time. When I came back, the keys were on the ground. When she didn’t come back I thought she was gone to Fermoy.” Two suitcases were missing as well as items of Ms. Satchwell’s clothing from the Youghal property. However, her beloved dog, Ruby, was left alone in the house. Richard Satchwell also claimed that €26,000 in cash – saved from a property sale and the proceeds of car boot sales – was missing from the property.


Despite a massive Garda investigation that included 400 lines of inquiry, 100 hours of CCTV footage, and 170 statements, no sign of Tina has been discovered.
