The search was continued, but unsuccessfully, throughout last night for Mary Lindsay, matron of the Greytown Hospital. Search parties are now organised in Greytown, Carterton and Masterton, and the whole countryside is being thoroughly scoured. The theory has been expressed that Miss Lindsay was picked up by a passing motor car in Greytown on Thursday night and conveyed north. The police request any motorist so doing to communicate with them. The missing woman is a daughter of Mr Lindsay, of Palmerston North.
