Police seek information on Mansfield couple

The detective leading a murder inquiry into the disappearance of an elderly couple in Mansfield has urged anyone who may have known them to get in contact with the police. William and Patricia Wycherley, who would now be aged 100 and 79, disappeared in 1998.

While we have learned some things about Bill [William], also known as Geoff, little is known about Pat. We believe her maiden name was Moore. Are you a relation of her, or were you friends with a Patricia Moore, who we believe was born in Fulham? If so, call us.

The historic nature of the inquiry means it is a long and complex process. But we are determined to get to the bottom of who was buried in the garden, how they got there and for what reason.

– Detective Chief Inspector Rob Griffin, Nottinghamshire Police
