Famous for creating fictional detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, Agatha Christie’s murder mystery novels are overshadowed by one particularly enduring mystery about her own life.

On December 3, 1926, Christie, who was 36 at the time, left her home in Sunningdale and drove towards Surrey. Her car was found abandoned the next morning with her driver’s license inside.

Her disappearance soon became headline news and a nationwide manhunt was organized involving over 1,000 police officers and 15,000 volunteers who scoured the country for her whereabouts.
