Jenny Pope: Missing in Ecuador

I was driving to band practice tonight and an item came on Radio Four about Jenny Pope, a lady from Mossley who has gone missing in Ecuador. She was last heard from while she was in Banos, Quito on 9th January and shortly afterwards her bank account was systematically emptied. I don't know her personally but a lot of my friends in the Manchester drumming community do, and we had a big busk in Manchester a couple of weeks ago to try to help raise awareness (and money!). We managed to bring in £300 in a couple of hours, thanks to the kindness of the people of Manchester. The Manchester police were on the radio this evening saying that they were sending a couple of officers out to Ecuador to help in the search for her. Fingers crossed that they manage to make some progress, everyone who knows the family is obviously very concerned about her.
