"Old girl. Any clues that led to God Shaw as a suspect were disregarded or never pursued. Search efforts were sometimes lazy and in other instances, nonexistent. The chance canal wasn't surged, not because police had deemed it irrelevant or unnecessary, but because there were too many weeds. Although televisions had been used in Scotland since 1952, investigators did an initially bother making a televised appeal until three months after moira went missing. Witnesses who'd provided tip offs waded in vain for police to contact them and arrange follow-up interviews. One such person, misses twice, had seen moira walking on the afternoon of her disappearance and overheard her talking about the bars. Misses Troy cross assumed investigators would door knock all the homes in their neighborhood as a part of their inquiries, which would provide her the opportunity to tell them what she had seen. When they never stopped to buy, she concluded that they must have known more than she did and carried on with her life. Multiple witness accounts that placed the moira our own gosh Shaw's bars were dismissed. After investigators spoke to one of the company's drivers, presumably got sure himself. While the sightings did end up in police reports, they were never shared publicly. Preventing others from coming forward with additional information that could shed further light on moira's final movements. In 2012, moira Anderson's missing person case was finally reclassified as a murder inquiry. Scotland's newly formed cold case unit took over the investigation and two years later, prosecutors publicly named Alexander Garza as the prime suspect for the first time. They stated that he should have been charged with moira's murder back in 1957. But clarified that they were not labeling him as guilty. They were merely saying there was enough evidence against him to warrant an indictment and to likely conviction. This declaration came 8 years too late. Alexander gotcha had died in 2006 at the age of 85. He had lived in Leeds for the remainder of his life and passed away in one of the city's hospitals. There have been repeated searches for moira Anderson's remains in recent years. The grave of one of Alexander gart Shaw's Friends was exhumed, as he had previously made reference to the friend having done him a big favor. The friend was laid to rest three weeks after moira vanished, leading to the belief that gotcha was stashed to moira's body beneath his friend's coffin before the grave was filled in. This theory, like many others, proved false. As of early 2022, moira's remains have not been found. In August, the 1997, 40 years after Alexander gatsu was jailed for raping his children's babysitter, news broke that another pedophile had been convicted in Coke bridge. 66 year old James Gallagher was a retired driver and a church elder, found guilty of abusing four girls over a 12 year period. In one case, he'd assaulted a girl in his bedroom after holding up a Bible and telling her it is God's way. The truth of these abuses only came to light decades later. After Gallagher was accused of assaulting another child. Following these revelations, parents in the cope bridge area asked their now adult children if they'd ever been a victim of Galilee. And two sets of sisters admitted that they had. James Gallagher was an old friend of Alexander gotcha. The two men were colleagues at Baxter's bus company and Gallagher was responsible for introducing guard Shaw to his sister. The 13 year old babysitter who got Shaw went on to rape. Gallagher was finally convicted of his own crimes in 1997 and given a ten year prison sentence. Gallagher didn't spend long behind bars. He was diagnosed with cancer and died in prison a little over 18 months later in 1999. 6 months after his death, another convicted pedophile named Alexander kiel came forward, claiming to have knowledge of further crimes. 58 year old keel said he'd been soulmates with Gallagher, and that he'd confessed to being part of a pedophile ring named the untouchables. Other members of the ring included police officers, politicians, and notorious criminals, such as English serial killer Fred West, and the perpetrator of the dunblane school massacre. Keel had penned a 26 page dossier detailing supposed admissions from Galilee..

"18th, 1993, more than 36 years after moira vanished. Detective McHugh and arrested God Shaw on suspicion of murder. He was also charged with 5 counts of lewd and libidinous behavior for abuses against four of his nieces. Gotcha was immediately released on bail, while Scotland's crown office reviewed all the evidence to determine whether the case would go to trial. They reached a decision. They wanted the abuse charges dropped, stating that it wasn't in the public interest to pursue them. A reason as to why wasn't given. Without these charges, investigators had no way of forcing guard Shaw to return to Scotland. The crayon offers also advised that that further investigation needed to be carried out before any murder charges could be laid. In the words of the public prosecutor, known in Scotland as the depute procured our fiscal. There is no murder without a body. The moira Anderson case is still officially a missing persons inquiry. Pure and simple. He noted that while Alexander guard Shaw had said some incriminating and suspicious things. The police aren't much further forward than in 1957. The moira Anderson case remained open, but without a body and with Alexander Garcia living in England, there was little that Scottish detectives could do. Sandra Brandon was devastated to learn that her father wouldn't be held accountable for his crimes against her cousins. The fact that moira's case had stalled as a result, compounded the blow. But she wasn't done with him. Sandra arrived in laid, accompanied by a journalist from the Sunday mail named Marion Scott. The pair visited Alexander gart Shaw's home, and he welcomed them both in, accepting Sandra's word that Marianne was just her friend. The women then questioned God sure about moira Anderson. He maintained that he had left her at the supermarket. That this time he insisted she was with a friend whose name he didn't know. He added that he had gotten off the bus at the same time as moira, a new and incriminating detail he hadn't shared before. Sandra pressed him on this, which led to her father quickly correcting himself. Hey, disembarked, so he could go home for an hour long break in the middle of his double shift. A relief driver had taken over his bus during his absence. However, Sandra knew that her father never used to return home between double shifts. No matter how many different ways Sandra pushed him, gotcha would not admit to killing moira. But he did confess to abusing one of his nieces. Stating I admit that I did touch her, but it was never the full thing. Everything else, like, but she was a relative. And I liked her Marin par. So it wasn't the whole hog. He began to rant about how he'd been cast as a black shape, his entire life. He was sick of police looking for things to pin on him and children accusing him of things he hadn't done. He had kept Cannes of all the times investigators had questioned or interviewed him over the years. In total, he had been suspected of committing sexual offenses against 122 children. Unbeknownst to God Shaw, Marion Scott had hidden a tape recorder in her bag and recorded their entire encounter. She wrote a full page article about the visit and what gotcha had revealed. This still wasn't enough for Sandra, so she began to write a book detailing her experiences with her father and the case against him. Over the years, she had come to suspect that Cote bridge police in 1957 might have actively covered up for her father. Gotcha was a member of the freemasons organization. As were most of the town's policemen, and they all attended the same lodge. Sandra's childhood home had also been just across the street from the police station, and she had observed how her father seemed to know all the officers. In 1999, Sandra's book was published. She titled it, where there is evil. In reference to a biblical passage, which states that where ravo resides, it must be cast out. Following its publication, new witnesses began to contact Sandra to share information. One woman who was a teenager in 1957 recalled how she had disembarked to guard Shaw's bar in the town center on the day of moira's disappearance. She began walking along an isolated road to a family friend's farmhouse, trudging through the snow as the road gradually became an unpaved track. As she walked, she noticed footprints in the snow. She also heard a scream. The area was remote, and there shouldn't have been anyone else out there. So when the girl raged her friend's house, she told them what had happened. They didn't think it was anything to worry about and told her not to bother reporting it to the police. A different witness said they'd seen a man in what looked like a Baxter's bus uniform, dragging a little girl into a field near a pond. The girl was wearing clothes, similar to what moira had been wearing when she was last seen. Another individual contacted the authorities to report something and now deceased family member had seen on the night in question. A farmer who lived near the neighboring town to cope bridge had noticed an empty bus parked in a way that was partly blocking the road. Its engine and lights were off, but the farmer noticed condensation on its windows. The following day, the bus was gone. The farmer had reported the sighting to police. However, they never followed up on it. The initial investigation into moira Anderson's disappearance was marred by many instances such as this, in which police work was lacklustre or botched. From the outset, there was an unwillingness to take the case seriously, with police more willing to suspect the 11 year old girl had fled all the way to London, then believed she met with foul play. Alexander gotcha was completely overlooked. Despite his previous interactions with moira Anderson, and the fact he was out on bail for raping a 13 year.

"Back home within an hour. A short while later, Mary received an anonymous letter crafted from letters, cut out of newspapers. The author warned that the babysitter wasn't Alexander's only rape victim and told Mary she should take her children and move away to Australia. The letter concluded why don't you go if you know what's good for you? You think you know what he's done, but you don't know the half of it. He won't stop with the lassi Anderson. Mary took the letter to the cobridge police. When no one followed up on the matter, Mary disregarded the letter and forgot about it altogether. Curious to know with her father had been ruled out of the investigation into moira Anderson's disappearance. Sandra reached out to an old friend who worked as a police inspector. He put her in touch with a colleague who worked in the oak bridge. Within a few days, two plain clothes detectives visited sandro at home. One of them, who introduced himself as detective inspector Jim mckeown, was carrying a large file filled with case documents. Detective mcewan informed Sandra that there was no record of any interview with her father in relation to moira's disappearance. He's claimed that he had driven a girl called moira Liddell, not moira Anderson on the afternoon of February 23, 1957, was also disputed. As there was no child or living in the area by that name at the time. Surprisingly, despite having been on bail for sexually assaulting a child when moira disappeared, Alexander got Shaw's name didn't appear once in her entire case file. There was a line that made reference to a bus driver refuting the sightings of moira on his bars. It read. The driver indicated that neither he nor the conductress were aware of any child answering moira's description. The bus's female conductor had not been spoken to at all. Although what had been 35 years since moira Anderson disappeared, her case was only ever classified as a missing person file. It had never been upgraded to a murder investigation. Meaning that it received fewer resources. Although it had never been closed, it wasn't being actively investigated either. Detective Jim mcewan was genuinely interested in everything that Sandra Bryan had to say about her father. He was convinced that moira had met with foul play, and Alexander gaucher was a promising person of interest. Detective mcewan began looking further into God Shaw's history. After his release from prison, gotcha hadn't been charged with any further sexual assaults. However, after moving to England, he was arrested for trying to obtain a mortgage under false pretenses. Detective mcewen tracked the dean retired police inspector John MacDonald, who would oversee the original investigation into moira Anderson's disappearance. McDonald had a clear memory of Alexander Garcia as a local bus driver, but no recollection of his conviction for raping a minor. When detective mcewen raised the possibility of got Shaw's involvement in moira's case, McDonald replied. It couldn't obey him. He stopped his boss for all the old ladies and dropped them at their gates. And the kiddies all gave him sweets. Instead, McDonald's still suspected AN Simpson, the mentally disabled Kirkwood resident who'd had a strong alibi for the day in question. Detective mcewan didn't get much further with most of the other ex officers who'd been involved in the moira randerson investigation either. But one did confirm that guard Shaw had a reputation for predatory behavior and a lot of complaints had been filed against him. He was suspected of being a flasher who exposed himself to children in dunbeth park and the nearby area. Though this was never proven. Gotcha was also well known to local cinema owners. He had a habit of going to film screenings and sitting next to children or young women, harassing them throughout the show. The women would often move to another seat, but the children typically stayed where they were, too scared to do anything. Some parents, like those of Sandra brown's Friends, told their children they weren't to go near guard shore. But social mores at the time meant they didn't really discuss why. Detective miku and stayed in touch with Sandra breon over the following months, with the two updating one another on new information that came to light. Sandra revealed that she had started speaking about her father to her 6 female cousins. Some of whom had some very troubling things to share. Rebecca, not her real name, was 60 years old in 1962 when she went to a family Tea Party at her grandparents house. It was a warm summer's day and everyone was sitting in the garden, enjoying the sunshine. Everyone except Rebecca's uncle, Alexander gotcha. Hay was alone in the garage, working on his baby yostin car. Rebecca was playing with her four year old sister when her attention turned to her uncle, who was summoning her to the garage. Gotcha was sitting behind his black car, wearing a pair of navy blue overalls over the top of his regular clothes. The car's bonnet was up, but gacho was focused on something else. A one bar electrical hater that was lying across his lap. It looked as though he was repairing it. Gotcha called out to Rebecca to come closer. But she was hesitant to venture further into the dark garage. Something just didn't feel right. Sensing her hesitation, gotcha said come here. There's something I want you to hold for me here. Rebecca moved to her uncle's side. He spoke again, stating come on, hold it just for a minute. That's all you have to do. It's a cable. Rebecca looked down at her uncle's lap to say what he was referring to. When she saw that his penis was exposed through his overalls, she froze in shock. Suddenly, Rebecca heard her four year old sister behind her. She had followed Rebecca into the garage, curious about what she was doing. Rebecca grabbed her hand and cried, run. The two girls fled back outside to where the rest of their family was gathered. When Rebecca quietly told her mother what had happened, she was warned not to tell lies. But Rebecca's mother.

"Alexander got Shaw's father, Sonny, was horrified when he heard that moira Anderson was missing. Hey, immediately suspected that he knew who was responsible. His own son he was well aware that in the previous month, Alexander had been arrested and charged with Khan or knowledge of a minor, for raping his children's babysitter. Alexander had been quickly released on bail, and the company he worked for allowed him to resume his bus driving job while awaiting trial. When news broke that 11 year old moira Anderson had vanished, Alexander mentioned to his father, had the girl had boarded his boss on the afternoon she went missing. Witnesses had placed the moira run his boss. With one female passenger recalling how Alexander had said hello moira when she boarded. Hey, to bang the last person to see or speak to her that day. Sunny was instantly suspicious. He knew about his son's fixation with little girls. As evidenced by his recent charge for raping one. Sunny feared that his son had abducted and killed moira and demanded that Alexander tell the police where he had put the little girl's body. He was so certain of this that he used a crowbar to tear up Alexander's kitchen, which had recently been renovated. Sonny pulled up the floorboards and broke through the false paneling behind the brand new sink, just to check that moira hadn't been placed under there. Then he stormed through the rest of the house, searching every room. He didn't find any sign of the little girl, but his niggling instincts remained. In the days that followed, Sonny examined the vehicles his son drove, and other areas where someone could conceivably hire a small body. These efforts also failed to uncover anything. Two months later, in April, Alexander was convicted and sentenced for ripe, at which point he left his family for what his children were told was an extended hospital stay. But the rest of his life, sunny continued to believe that his son was responsible for moira Anderson's disappearance. Now, decades later in 1992, Alexander spoke of his father's suspicions to his own daughter, Sandra Brown. He didn't confess to having done anything to moira. But Sandra knew he was fully willing and able. Moira Anderson was exactly the type of little girl Alexander used to pay attention to. Her family had described her as a tomboy, and she'd been slender and lively, with a striking and mischievous smile. In an effort to discover the truth, Sandra spoke with other family members to see if they could recall anything from the afternoon of Saturday, February 23, 1957. Sandra had been just 8 years old at the time and was homesick with the flu. Her mother Mary had been looking after her, while her father worked an afternoon shift from two to ten. Yet, he didn't return home until midnight. Mary noted how exhausted her husband looked, and attributed it to long hours driving the boss, coupled with the bad weather. The following afternoon, a relative visited the guard Shaw home, and informed the family that moira Anderson was missing. The next week, Alexander arrived home to find his wife chatting with her sister, who had stopped by for a visit. He told the two women that he had to head back out again to speak with the police. As he was already out on bail for raping the family's 13 year old babysitter, this news upset Mary, and she demanded to know what was going on. Alexander explained that someone had mistakenly reported that moira Anderson had boarded his bar on the day she went missing and heard him greet her by name. He had to tell the police that it was all a mix up. The young passenger he'd picked up that afternoon was another little girl named moira Liddell. Gacho left.

"The news that her father was a rapist was shocking to Sandra. But she had always felt something wasn't right about him. She remembered how he would live at young women and make crash jokes, while grabbing at or stroking their bodies. Sometimes he'd pin them to the ground if they struggled. Then lift their clothing and rub his doubled face all over their skin. He dubbed this the beauty game, and insisted that women loved it. He's inappropriate behavior wasn't limited to adults. Alexander locked to take Sandra and her friends out in his black baby Austin Carr. On one particularly hot day, he drove them to a remote Lake. When they arrived, he gave Sandra some money and asked her to go and buy ice creams for the group. Sandra got out of the car and headed back to an ice cream van they had passed on the way. It was a fairly long walk and the ice creams were melting by the time Sandra returned to her father's car. She noticed its windows were fogged up and the doors were locked. Peering inside, Sandra saw some items of her friend's clothing scattered about. She wanted if the group had been playing the beady game. On another occasion, Sandra watched her father Lenovo from behind the wheel to tickle and pinch her friends in the back seat. Sandra had been sitting beside him in the front passenger seat, and when she turned to see what he was doing to her friends, she saw he had pulled their underwear down and was touching their chests. He also liked to join in on their games of hide and seek, telling the girls that he knew of excellent hiding spots, if anyone ever wanted to hide with him. Eventually, Sandra's friends began telling her that they couldn't play with her anymore. When she asked why they replied we're just not to. And we're not allowed to say why. Then there was the incident when Sandra was 7 years old. Tasked with delivering her father his lunch while he worked. Sandra headed to a nearby bus stop on Main Street that she knew he pulled into every 30 minutes. The boss was already waiting there when Sandra arrived, so she boarded with sandwiches in hand. Her father and three other adults were seated in the back. As Sandra moved to down the aisle towards them, she sent something wasn't right. Her father was grappling with the young woman who worked on his bus as a conductor. A pair of women's underwear was sticking out of his trouser pocket. Next to them was one of the company's other drivers, who was likewise engaged with another female employee. Sandra struggled to process the scene in front of her. She spoke to them all, announcing her arrival, and at the four adults scrambled to cover themselves. In a furious voice, her father, bellowed, get the hell out of here. Sandra fled from the boss and ran to the home of her aunt, who comforted her as she sobbed. Sandra was terrified that her father would be angry at her. A leather belt that he wore around his waist, doubled as a weapon. If he thought his children had misbehaved, then Alexander would remove the belt and whip them with the buckle land. He also thought it was funny to punish Sandra by dipping a teaspoon in freshly made tea before pressing it against her bare leg or arm, leaving burns on her skin. Then he'd tell her mother that Sandra had heard herself by carelessly spilling the hot drink. As the head of the household, his word wasn't to be questioned. Sandra's on, reassured her that she wouldn't be in trouble, but also cautioned her against telling her mother what she'd seen. It would be best if Sandra forgot the whole thing. Her father took the same approach and never mentioned the incident. Instead, he started to doubt on his wife more, taking her out on dates. Despite Alexander's sudden shift into becoming a kinder person, Sandra struggled to trust her father. At the theater production after party, many years later, she finally came to learn that her feelings had been entirely justified. It would take another decade after learning her father was a convicted rapist before Sandra could address the matter with her family head on. In 1992, following the death of a relative, Sandra made her way to their house to help with funeral arrangements. To her shark, her father was there. It was the first time she had seen him in decades. By now, Sandra was in her mid 40s and Alexander gacho was almost 71. Taking the opportunity to confront him about what she had since discovered, Sandra asked the spake to her father in private. The two went to a bedroom and sat side by side on the bed. Alexander was smiling, but he's expression fell as Sandra began to tell him how disgusted she was by him. When she brought up his conviction for rape, Alexander became defensive. He insisted that he'd tried to improve himself following his release from prison. But struggled when he found not everyone was willing to forgive.

People let alone children almost the never went missing from co bridge, and the local police force weren't equipped to deal with it. Eventually, the Anderson's campaigning led to Glasgow's criminal investigation department taking on the case. Glasgow detectives turned their attention to a man named Peter Manuel. It was believed Manuel had murdered 7 people across southern Scotland between 1956, and he's arrested in 1958. While most of his victims were older, he did kill a ten year old boy. Most of his murders were shootings carried out during break ins, but he did stalk rape and murder a 17 year old girl, whose body he buried in a field. It was believed he also did the same to another 17 year old, but this murder charge was dropped due to insufficient evidence. Manuel was active around Atlantic Shah, the county where cope bridge lay. And hadn't yet been apprehended when moira Anderson vanished. The Glasgow CID thought they might be able to link Manuel to her disappearance. But soon discovered he was imprisoned for another offense at the time. Delayed raged a dead end, just like every other one that investigators had pursued. Months turned into years and soon decades had passed without moira Anderson's family ever learning what had happened to her on the afternoon of February 23, 1957. Sandra Bryan was 8 years old and living in co bridge when the town was rocked by moira Anderson's disappearance. As Sandra was three years younger and attended a different school, she hadn't known moira well, but she was familiar with her. Like other children in co bridge, Sandra was permitted fewer freedoms after moira vanished. She avoided play areas that had previously felt safe, and began looking over her shoulder frequently. Fearful of whatever forces had taken moira away. Sandra was also dealing with a rocky home life. Her father was staying in hospital due to illness, leaving Sandra, her mother and her two younger brothers to fend for themselves. Sandra helps her mother carry out cleaning jobs to support the family and also assisted in raising the two boys. The absence of Sandra's father, Alexander gacho, was felt throughout town. He was a constant presence in the day to today lives of cope bridge residents, and he knew many of them by name. Just before Christmas in 1956, some men had arrived at the guard shore house, then taken Alexander away. After that, the other adults in the family would whisper to one another in hushed tones. Always stopping when Sandra walked into the room. One day, Sandra's paternal grandfather explained to her that her father had been hospitalized for mental illness. The significant stigma around mental illness at the time meant that Sandra couldn't visit her father, and his situation was rarely spoken of. When her father finally returned home in 1959, he settled back into the community and resumed his position behind the wheel of the bus he drove for the Baxter's coach company. Alexander's treatment was shrouded in mystery. Sandra didn't understand the extent of it. Whatever it entitled, she came to find it hadn't changed him much. Once back home, he returned to his old bad ways. He continued cheating on his wife with multiple women, including a lengthy affair with a coworker, half his age. This was the catalyst that led the Sandra's parents separation and eventual divorce in 1965. Alexander started a new family and a new life in Leeds, England. Effectively ending his relationship with his daughter, Sandra. Many years past. Sandra eventually married and had two children of her own, while also pursuing a successful career in teaching. In the early 1980s, Sandra and her family relocated to the Scottish highlands. Sandra immersed herself in her new neighborhood by participating in community theater productions. At an after party for one such production, Sandra was surprised to run into a former neighbor from Cote bridge. The two began to chat and the neighbor told Sandra how she particularly remembered Sandra's father..

"Sent by her uncle to purchase some butter needed for her grandmother's dinner that night. Moira was happy to oblige. She often ran errands for her family and made a little pocket money doing the same for an elderly neighbor. The second of three daughters, moira was industrious and mature. She even had a part time job delivering milk, which was hard work. She had to push a heavy card stacked with milk bottles, door to door. She had become a recognizable and much loved presence within her close knit community. The walk to the co op store on the corner of a Laird street was only about 500 yards from moira's grandmother's home, but she had to move quickly as the shop was due to close in less than half an hour. Her blue coat was buttoned up tightly to protect against the ICA, while a dark blue scarf and a navy blue wall pixie style hat with red bands kept her neck and head warm. The straits were silent and deserted due to the terrible weather, with very few vehicles on the road. By that night, the Anderson family was overcome with wary. Parents, Andrew and Maisie had spent the past few hours making inquiries as to the whereabouts of their daughter, moira. No one had seen or heard from her since she left for the co op at around three 50 p.m.. She hadn't wound up at a friend or relative's house. Nor could she have gotten lost on the short journey as she knew the local straits like the back of her hand. The bad weather also made it unlikely that she'd grown distracted and was playing outside somewhere. The local library was checked in case moira had gone there and lost track of time reading, which she had a habit of doing. But she wasn't there either. Moira had missed the 5 p.m. screening of the film gauze and dolls at a local cinema that she had planned to see with two of her older cousins. It was an outing that she was very excited about. But her cousins assumed she had chosen to do something else entirely when she failed to meet with them and didn't raise the alarm. Hours passed before anyone realized something was seriously amiss. As the straits grew darker and colder, any plausible explanation for moira's absence seemed less and less likely. Just before midnight, Andrew Anderson contacted Coke bridge police to report his little girl as missing. The following day was Maisie Anderson's 40th birthday. Celebrations were canceled, has she spent a desperately looking for her daughter. The search grew in size and scope over the next few days, with local volunteers helping to check a bend and buildings, yards, and sheds. Rumors that moira was a difficult child, led police to consider the possibility that she'd had an argument with her parents or sisters and ran away. Some thought the 11 year old might have traveled as far as London. A family thought they had seen moira had a fun fair in the nearby city of Glasgow. Other sightings arose in west Scotland and the north of England. While police considered it probable that moira had vanished willingly and would turn up sooner or later. Her family felt very differently. Maisie Anderson told the daily record newspaper. I know my daughter has been taken away against her will. She would never speak to strangers. Andrew echoed his wife's thoughts, stating I fear she has been picked up in a car and taken away somewhere. But moira never liked leaving the town, even to go to Glasgow. She spent almost all her spare time playing around the house. A woman came forward with a story that seemed to support Andrew and maisy Anderson's belief that their daughter had been taken. She lived in the area of moira's last name whereabouts, and recalled hearing the sound of screeching brakes on that Saturday afternoon. She said that when she looked at her window, she saw a car speeding away. The woman suspected that the murderers had accidentally hit moira as she was walking, then bundled her body into the car in a panic. Officers followed up on their report by visiting the woman's home. After peering out of the window that she'd indicated, they dismissed her theory almost immediately. It wasn't possible for her to have seen the strait from that location. They also noted that the emir of snow on the day in question would have muffled the noise from any vehicles passing outside. Despite cobridge is relatively close proximity to Scotland's largest city of Glasgow. The town small and safe community felt welds away. Nobody was a stranger, least of all, moira Anderson, who was often recognized wherever she went. Her trip to the co op store had been no exception. Misses Troy cross was clearing away a heavy layer of snow outside her house on the afternoon of February 23. When she spotted moira Anderson walking past on her butter buying mission. She called out a greeting to the little girl who shouted one back in return. Misses twice thought she heard moira ask is the bus away yet. As moira continued on her way, misses twice went back inside her home. Moira Anderson was next started boarding a bus near the co op store. It was unclear why she decided to catch a boss or where she was heading. But a man waiting at the stop recognized the girl, as he knew her family. From a window of a nearby residence, an elderly woman also spotted moira at the bus stop. Moira had been playing in the snow when suddenly she slipped and fell. She seemed fine and quickly got back up. Then began rummaging through her pockets back in the snow, as though she dropped something. The elderly woman thought moira might have lost money for her bus fare, as she kept a glancing up as though checking for the buses arrival. The boss appeared moments later and when it drove off again, the woman saw that moira was gone. When moira boarded the bus, she took a seat at the front of the vehicle, as the driver grated her. She locked eyes with a woman she knew, and the pair exchanged a smile. The woman carried on down the aisle towards the back. She thought moira was still on the boss after she herself.

"13 year old Scottish girl Janet Anderson hurried along the footpath. She had gone home over her lunch break, which was due to end shortly. As she needed her school, Janet passed a small black car parked to the side of the road. Its bonnet was up, and a tall man in overalls was peering down at the car's engine. Noticing Janet, he called out to her and asked if she could help him by holding the bonnet up for a minute, while he looked under the vehicle for signs of a fold. Janet had been brought up to respect her elders and the man looked pleasant enough, so she agreed. The car's bonnet was heavy. Janet had to use both hands to keep it raised while the man crawled under the car. Before long, Janet was startled by something. The man had reached out from below and was groping her beneath her skirt. Janet screamed, let go of the bonnet and fled. After running a short distance, Jenner realized that she should take down the license plate of her attack his vehicle, so he could be identified. She turned and looked back at the car, memorizing the mix of letters and numbers stamped onto its license plate before rushing off to the safety of her school. The moment she arrived, she jotted down the plate's details, then went to inform a teacher of what had happened. The police were notified and school administrators warned students to travel in pairs as a bad man was lurking in the neighborhood. The assault couldn't have happened at a worse time. Janet and her family were already dealing with the terrible trauma. Just a few weeks earlier, on a regular Saturday afternoon, Janet's sister had vanished.
