Chapter Two: Miss Livingstone, I Presume?

The voice on the phone said, "I understand that you are a friend of my son, James. He has gone missing. I require your assistance in bringing him home again...”

A university student has gone missing. Can his friends find out what has happened to James Frazer in 1920s Massachusetts?

”Well, if your young friend isn’t staying in town - and I think we’d know if he was - the only places locally I can think of is a small mom and pop place out on the coast road past Newburyport, or there’s ather small place on the west road out of Newburyport. That would seem a good place to start,” replied the Policeman.

”Thanks Officer” says Howard. ”I guess we’ll have to start at the nearest of the places, and any diners and restaurants en route.”

He thinks for a moment. ”Has anyone else ever gone missing like this in your experience?” he asks the Officer.

"Sounds like the best plan we've got, hopefully we'll find some traces of him at one of these places." says Thomas.

"I agree, let's try the places near Newburyport first," says William. "We can show his picture around there, see if anyone recognizes him. If not, we proceed to the next place on the road back to Arkham until someone does. Then we'll know the last place he was probably seen before he disappeared."

”Missing people in Amesbury? Not so much,” replied the officer. ”We lost a few boys after they came back from the war - I guess they couldn’t deal with what they went through over there. A couple of them just walked out and didn’t return, but that was best part of ten years ago.”

“As for further afield, we sometimes get bulletins about people who’ve gone missing from all over the country, but there’s no indication that they’ve gone missing around here.”


The policeman got back in his car. Through the open window, he said, ”Good luck with finding your friend. Do your best for that young girl - she’ll be devastated if he doesn’t come home.” He nodded solemnly to the five men, started the engine and drove away.

"Well, I s'pose it's about the only option we've got. We've asked what we can, and I don't think that the police will want us messing around any more."

Lawrence stands by, awaiting the replies of the others.

"Yes, let's go," says William. He gets behind the wheel of his car and starts the engine.

Spoiler:
Are you all going? Mallard suggested that he may stay behind.

For those moving on, where do you want to go first? The mom & pop place out on the coast road, or the place on the west road out of Newburyport? Or did you have something else in mind?

Spoiler:
Howard jumps in the car too. Why don’t we visit wherever is closest? And if there is anywhere along the way we can ask about James. He might have stopped at a diner or something.
