On Friday the 18th of August, a local Reachville student, Simone Martin, 17, was taken just outside the gates of the Reachville Community High School.
Witnesses say that Simone had just left the school when they saw a blue station wagon slowly edge along the curb. They say that although Simone could not be seen from the school steps, they did see the taillights of the car as it pulled over. They say the taillights could be seen for a few minutes and then the car drove away.
A large Box hedge lines the front of the school, and comes to a stop 50 meters from the gate. Witnesses should have been able to see Simone as she walked passed the hedges on her way home. She was not seen.
One witness and friend, Mary Allen said, ‘You know, Sim an I wuz just tex’in, an then she jus stopped. I wuz like, WTF! Sim? An that wuz tha las time I seez er’ [sic].
A cursory search along the hedge lining turned up Simone ‘s phone. It looked as if it had been trodden on, with a large crack in the screen likely from a struggle, I allege.

This is Craven Looney, enduring another disturbing day on the streets of Reachville assisted by the lovely Seamus Macbeth back to the minivan, fighting the urge to say, ‘I told ya so’ as it seems Little Finger has come to Reachville this week, ‘both to hunt and gather,’ local councilors.
Councillors gave a statement last time saying, “It didn’t happen in Reachville, it was only dumped here, get on with your lives”, however, Mallow Groves is only a suburb away and it feels, for this reporter, like Little Finger is working his way too Reachville, not his way around it.
This is Craven Looney bringing you the news as it happens, almost on time, every time.
