    CHILDS 2047042 - the Glasgow Herald of May 21st reports that she had disappeared on May 3rd while hitch-hiking from Hereford to Happisburgh, Norfolk, and her body was found on the banks of the River Nene, near Thorney, Cambridgeshire.

    Scotland Yard were called in to investigate, but the case was never solved.
