Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Gracia Morton was last seen in Birmingham, England on November 12, 1997.
Morton is a talented violinist who came from Argentina to Birmingham for advanced tuition from her brother-in-law. She vanished three weeks before she was due to divorce her husband. Her bank accounts are still untouched.

On the day she disappeared Gracia told her solicitor she was going to see her husband.
Her car, containing her mobile phone, was left parked outside the husband's house in west London.
Michael Morton claimed to police she had asked him to look after the car and their four-year-old daughter.
Morton became the prime suspect and was arrested after her family accused him of harming her. The defendant continued to be unhelpful to police as officers scoured Britain for her.

Michael Morton was jailed for seven years on August 1, 2005 for killing Gracia, whose body has never been found.
