A woman arrested by Irish police investigating the abduction of a man in Dublin has been released.

Ciaran Noonan, from Blanchardstown, was chased and assaulted by a number of men on Russell Avenue in East Wall on 20 October.

He was bundled into a black Volkswagen with tinted windows and driven away. He is still missing.

The woman was arrested on Saturday morning. Gardai said a file would be prepared for the DPP.

The car used in the abduction was found in a car park at Killegland Apartments, Ashbourne, County Meath two days later.

Police have said they are very concerned about Mr Noonan's safety.

It was previously reported that he may have been attacked because he owes money to a criminal.
