Special Inquiry

Discreet inquiry is requested, at the instance of Doctor James Simpson Macpherson, C.M.G., a resident of Victoria, British Columbia, to trace his daughter, Mary Violet Thornley Macpherson, 13 1/2 years of age, fairly tall, of sallow complexion, with brown hair and blue eyes, of whom is a photograph above, who, about 10.30 p.m. on October 15th, 1919, disappeared from a carriage on the Melbourne-Sydney express, at Albury Railway Station, which in charge of her father, proceeding from Melbourne to Sydney, en route to Canada. On the 12th September last a Judge's order was obtained in Melbourne against certain well-to-do relatives in that State, in whose care she had been since 3 years of age, directing that the missing girl should be handed over to the custody of her father; and from investigations made it has been ascertained that, at their instigation, the train was intercepted at Albury, where, during the doctor's temporary absence, the child was removed in a motor car, and that she is now being kept quietly out of the way to defeat the provisions of the order made. Note.-On October 20th last a girl (supposed identical with the missing girl), accompanied by a lady, arrived in a motor car at the Terminus Hotel, Morgan, South Australia, where they stayed the night, and probably left by train for Adelaide on the following day. Very cautious inquiries should be made, as the persons concerned in the removal may become aware that she is being traced and cause her to be removed again. In the event of the missing girl being located it is also extremely desirable that the persons with whom she is staying not be made aware of the inquiry. Any information communicate by wire with Detective Office, Adelaide. - (C.3775)
