Valerie Dawn Haycock
Missing since July 14, 1967 from Northampton, England, United Kingdom.
Classification: Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Haycock, from Piddington, Northants, was 19 years old when she was last seen by her family boarding a bus from Northampton to Newport Pagnell and then on to Luton, on Friday, July 14, 1967. She has not been seen by her family since. She told them that she had gotten a job as a nanny for a family living on a farm in the Luton area.

Recent inquiries indicate that Valerie had built up a close relationship with two Irishmen who were contracted by the local council to repaint the white lines on the road after they had been resurfaced. The two men traveled the roads working and towed a caravan behind their lorry so that wherever they finished at the end of the day, they slept in the caravan. It is strongly suspected that Haycock ran away to Ireland with these two men.

There have been 7 recent sightings of Haycock, and 6 of them were in southern Ireland.
