Circumstances of Disappearance
Pat Allen disappeared from her home in Salcombe in May 1975, along with her son Jonathan and daughter Victoria.

Anthony John Allen, Pats' husband and the father of Jonathan and Victoria, never reported his family missing, nothing has been heard from them since their disappearance and no bodies have been found.
