My wife is missing.
She went to rescue people from the flood yesterday and has not come home...

Sergeant at Police Station:
What is her height?

I'm not sure. A little over five-feet tall?


Don't know. Not slim, not really fat.

Color of eyes?

Sort of brown I think. Never really noticed.

Color of hair?

Changes a couple times a year.
Maybe dark brown now.
I can’t remember.

What was she wearing?

Could have been pants, or maybe a skirt or shorts. I don't know exactly.

What kind of car did she go in?

She actually went on my dirt bike...

What kind of bike was it?

Reminds me of a true story when my Yam DT175 was nicked

Reporting at the Police Station I was asked "any distinguishing marks"

Oh yes says I, " I have a long scar on my left forearm" 

Was probably in shock at the loss of my pride and joy  :o :o :o
