Jojo Dullard was in Dublin to collect her final social welfare cheque from the post office in Harold’s Cross before returning home to Kilkenny to start a new life after studying to be a beautician in the capital. She missed the last bus to Kilkenny and chose to take a bus to Naas instead. Her plan was to hitch from Naas to Callan thereafter. Once in Naas, Jojo was still over 100 km from her hometown of Callan. She took two lifts getting to Kilcullen and then on to Moone, Co. Kildare. (Moone is approximately 40km from Naas)
She was dropped off at a phone box in Moone where she called her friend Mary Cullinane to tell her friend of her progress. Jojo cut the conversation short when she said she saw a car stopping. This was the last confirmed communication with Jojo prior to her disappearance – at 11.37pm. At about midnight, a young woman fitting Jojo’s description was seen leaning in a car window of a Toyota Carina-type car in Castledermot in Co. Kildare. (Castledermot is approximately 7.5km from Moone)
As with the Annie McCarrick case, no trace of Jojo has ever been found since she vanished nearly 15 years ago.
