The family of a missing vet vowed to "bring her home" after a man appeared in court charged with her murder.
Clive Sharp, 46, from Bethesda, Gwynedd, was remanded in custody at the hearing at Mold Magistrates' Court.
He is charged with murdering Catherine Gowing, 37, between October 11 and 17.
The vet, who is originally from Clonlee, Co Offaly, in Ireland, failed to arrive at work at the Evans Veterinary Practice in Mold, North Wales, on Monday.
She was captured on CCTV at an Asda store in Queensferry, Flintshire, at 8:06pm on Friday October 12.
After the court hearing, Detective Inspector Iestyn Davies said on behalf of Ms Gowing's family: "Our primary concern and objective is that we find Catherine.
"The support we have received from the police, the public and all Catherine's friends and family has kept us going and will continue to do so.
"We will bring Catherine home."
On Friday, police confirmed a burnt-out Renault Clio found at a disused quarry in Pinfold Lane, Alltami, near Mold, was Ms Gowing's.
Detectives say they have devoted "extensive" resources to the search, including dog teams and underwater search specialists.
Sharp is due to appear before Caernarfon Crown Court on Tuesday.
