Missing since May 21, 1973 from Humberside, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom.
Classification: Involuntary

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Markham disappeared from her home in Robinson Road, Scunthorpe, on May 21, 1973 and has not been seen since. She left home to attend school but failed to arrive.

Christine walked part-way to school with two of her siblings, who then caught a bus to another school that they attended. Through the bus window, they saw Christine turn around and walk back in the direction in which they came. She had been known to take the odd day off school and wander the area.

A number of sightings were reported to the police of Christine's whereabouts; including a relative who was on a bus and saw her on Ashby Road between the Brumby corner and Priory pub around 10.30 on that Monday.
