Season 3 - Episode 36

DESCRIPTION:

Just before sunset on Saturday, June 18, 1988, a local patrol car slowed as it travelled eastbound along the M50 motorway. Walking along the hard shoulder was a young girl carrying a baby. The officer pulled in and asked if the girl was alright. Eleven-year-old Georgina explained that she was looking for her older sister, Marie. Their car had broken down a little way up the road and Marie had left to use the emergency phone some time ago — but she had not come back.
