LONDON -- The wife of a British man who disappeared more than five years ago, but then turned up alive at the weekend, has herself gone missing, media reports said yesterday.
John Darwin, 57, who was thought to have died in a canoeing accident in the North Sea, walked into a London police station and declared he was a missing person, but had no memory of where he had been.
As police try to piece together the mystery, newspapers said his wife Anne had now disappeared, with family and friends unaware of her whereabouts.
She emigrated about six weeks ago, possibly to Panama in central America, after selling the family home in Seaton Carew, northeast England.
The reports said she did not leave a forwarding address.
Puzzled neighbours and the house's new owners told reporters she left furniture in the house and Spanish language books.
Six months after her husband's disappearance she thought she was a widow.
An inquest was also held into his death.
A number of newspapers said the wife had an active bank account in Panama.
But other neighbours were convinced she was in Australia or the Caribbean.
Police questioned John Darwin, a former teacher and prison officer who was declared dead after the remains of his canoe were washed up on the beach at Seaton Carew in March 2002. - Sapa-AFP
