Circumstances of Disappearance

Later, witnesses said Sarah had got off the train and crossed the footbridge to the car park, where some people heard a woman shouting, ‘Give me back my keys.’

More than 250 police conducted an extensive air, sea and land search for 21 days with no result.
Police suspect foul play.
