Andy Wade

Andy looks on as Albert delves into the bin, his stomach heaves and threatens to make him vomit again as Albert comes back with a padded envelope and papers. He gives a 'thumbs up' as Albert cheerily waved his find about, feeling very 'green about the gills'.

"That's totally disgusting!" he says "But it does prove that Gossham's package arrived." he says after gingerly inspecting the envelope and receipt.

"We need to find Maria he adds..." hoping to get into some 'fresh air'.

"She got the package," says Liz, "but where are the contents? I've already checked the lounge and the bedroom, and they're not there. You chaps searched the kitchen. Where else is left? Could she have them on her person? But how the bloody hell are we supposed to find her? We've still got her laptop. Let me take a look through her emails."

Alex please ask the nice lady if she saw anyone visiting Maria, if anyone suspicious arrived to the building and if so, was he covered with tattoos ? Can she recognize Maria's car outside and if the last time she saw MAria, Maria seems agitated and nervous ?


Alex looks at Jacob a bit strangely as his description of possible visitors, but asks the woman anyway. The woman clearly gives her response some thought saying something to Alex then thinking about her answer and adding more.

"Nope no visitors, last visitor she had was the big bearded foreigner about a month or so ago. After which she didn't see much of her at all. She says that she hasn't seen Maria's car for several days maybe a week, her car is a small Blue car, she thinks a VW, by the description of the badge. I think I remember seeing Maria drive a Polo or a Golf. The last time she saw her she looked as though she was travelling somewhere" Alex pauses while the woman says something else then clearly mimics someone slinging a pack over one shoulder. "She says she looked as though she was dressed for camping trip, she had a rucksack" He pauses again while the woman continues then .."and I think climbing gear, certainly a rope"

Liz returns to the laptop and starts looking through Maria's emails, starting with the most recent ones she sent and any she received before and after she sent her last one.

OOC:   big bearded foreigner fits the descition of Gossham ? I guess that the others are reading because Jacob will tell them everything later...  


Jacob nods to the woman and add
Alex, please ask the woman if Maria live alone or she had a spouse ... state before her that she left her dog to the mercy of nature. Anyone came inside her apartment to care the dog when she was away ? From past talks with Maria, did she said where she likes to travel or said where she was going ?

Alex turns to Jacob, I do not think these two are friends, she already said she think Maria a bad woman because she don't have a husband, and complain about dog barking and you know doing its toilet outside. This one she is just a very nosey old woman

OOC:   Also yes the description of a large (fat) bearded man would certainly match Gossham

Jacob thanks the woman with a nod and goes outside to see if he can find Maria's blue VW, just to be sure she did left with her own car and was not kidnapped by anyone.
Once he finds the car outside or not, he will go back inside the building, He will check Maria's mailbox before going up to fill the others with the details.

Jacob finds an allocated parking space for Maria's apartment, infact Albert has parked the hire car in it, there is no Blue Volkswagen visible.

OOC:   As per my previous post there is a bank of locked letter boxes in the main entrance lobby, but they are sturdy metal affairs which will need some effort to open (and possibly tools which you don't have on hand - although a tyre iron might be adequate.) Maria's seems to be filled with several days worth of junk mail.

Jacob tries to look through the opening of the mailbox and pull some with my fingers, if he fails he will leave it and go back to the others

Albert barely holding onto the contents of his stomach paces to the window and draws a couple of deep breaths.

We've got her laptop, let's get out of here so that Liz can do her techno-wizardy with it.

Alex, you said you arranged accommodation for the professor over the last 8 years. Did he have a favourite apartment or place that he stayed at? Could we maybe take a swing by there and just make sure Maria is not holed there or left a note for him there?

Also you said you drove him around, took him to places to take photographs and occasionally to dig sites with Maria. Can you remember the last few places you took him to - particularly to take photographs and even better places that might need a rope to get to?
Anything you can remember could be important.


Albert bends down and rubs the emaciated dog behind the ear and says quietly All right fella, we'll get you sorted out, try and find your mum
Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

There isn't really much on the laptop for Liz to do her computer wizardry on, there isn't a mail client, there is a wireless card but its disabled, pretty much everything piece of software but MS office has been removed from the laptop. Its very similar to a box Liz built for a friend not to recently who wanted to write a novel and didn't want to be wanted distracted by social media or anything else

OOC:   Alex is currently with Jacob. However, rather than delay we can assume Alex tells Albert the following at some point.  


Alex shrugs Il professori didn't have a favourite apartment, he demanded little and wasn't afraid to rough it if matters demanded it. They drove around a lot in the North of the country although on the occasions they went to dig sites with Maria they were all over the country. Il professori however seemed most interested in the north of the country. He always took lots of photos wherever he went every time he stop pap, pap, pap Alex mimes taking photos. We walk a lot in the mountains, but he never climb anywhere.

"This is just a bare bones system," says Liz. "No email or anything. I've done all I can with it, at least without the external drive." When Alex returns and speaks to Albert, Liz shows him the photographs she recovered. "You've been to the dig sites, right? Could you identify which one these pictures were taken at? That's where I think she's gone. It must be one of the ones in the mountains, to the north."

Alex holds up one of the photos squinting "This one looks familiar but my eyes not so good, anybody have glass or maybe we can make picture bigger?"

OOC:   Spot Hidden if you want to try the naked eye, otherwise a Photography skill to blow the picture up without making it a blurry mess (whether using a computer or photographic equipment to do the job)

Liz looks around for a glass or something similar, finding what she needs quickly.

When Liz hands Alex an empty glass he looks at her blankly for a moment, then smiles. "No, no drinking glass, you know, looking glass" he mimics holding up and peering through a magnifying glass. "See here is road sign what does it say" Alex hands the photo of Gosshamm and Demachi posing on the bonnet of a Blue Volkswagon, parked up in a town square over to Liz. Straining somewhat Liz's young eyes can just about make out the road sign Alex is talking about, which indicates somewhere called Bajram Curri is only a few miles away.

Andy Wade

Andy braves the kitchen once more and gets some water for the poor mutt.

"That's quick thinking!" Andy says seeing the drinking glass being used to magnify the picture. "What can you tell us about that village? Can you remember what the Professor's did there?" he asks Alex hoping that this could be a 'break in the case'.... they definitely needed one!

Bajram Curri is in the North of the country, it is on the border with Kosova, it is remote, very mountainous. Il Professorri We have been there several times as a base of operations while Il professori travelled around. It has not always been the safest place during war it was a wild lawless place. Like the Wild West, no government, just Mafia and militia. The hills near the border are dangerous lots of bombs which did not go off.
