Circumstances of Disappearance
Sister Jacinta Bracken, who was based at the Stella Maris convent in Swansea, disappeared in May 1979 while shopping for a pair of stockings for her mother.
Originally from Ballacolla in Ireland, she was last seen near the city's Quadrant multi-storey car park by two children she taught.

Her handbag was found on foreshore the day after disappearance, 30 feet from West Pier.

Sister Jacinta would often walk along the sand and mud banks of the old docklands on her way back to the convent from shopping in the city center.
No passport has been issued or death registered under her name since her disappearance.

She was a popular member of the community who liked to walk, shop and gave local children guitar lessons.
