Just over two months ago Peter Lynch got the phone call his family had spent 18 years waiting for.

That call on May 19 brought news that a car had been recovered from Upper Lough Erne in Co Fermanagh.

The white Mitsubishi Galant was discovered in Lough Corradilar near Lisnaskea by two fishermen who were aware of a renewed search of loughs and quarries along the border for Peter's father Tony.
