Little Katrice disappeared from an army shopping complex in West Germany,
where she lived in British Army quarters, on her second birthday in 1979.
Police believe she was abducted and raised by another family elsewhere in
Europe and knows nothing of her true identity.
Katrice’s mum was carrying her around the supermarket and went back to get
some crisps, leaving the tot with the rest of the family – who thought she
followed her mum, but when she returned her daughter was nowhere to be seen.
Katrice had a pink birthmark slightly to the right of the base of her spine
and a slight squint in her left eye, which could be fixed by surgery or may
cause her to need glasses.
Three recent sightings of Katrice came after her story appeared on BBC’s
Missing Live programme, where an image of what she may look like as a
29-year-old was shown.
