She was resident at the Old Hulme Nurses Residence. Maria stayed in touch with the
family only by postal correspondence, so it is not clear exactly when she went missing. At this point, we can pin it down to the summer months of 1968. At the time, it was thought she was a runaway, however, she took none of her belongings and her sister recalls that at the time, it was known that she had not picked up her latest pay check. We are asking for anyone who went to school at Kidderminster High, or who worked at Dudley Road Hospital, to please contact us if you recall Maria, or anyone going missing. What may seem insignificant to you may be important to us in helping to piece together the puzzle of her disappearance.
