FO attempts to find missing nurse
The UK Foreign Office has said its staff are doing all they can to trace a 50-year-old nurse who is missing in South America.
Jennifer Pope, 50, of Mossley, Greater Manchester, had sent regular e-mails to her husband and son during her four-month trip across the continent.
But she has not been in contact with them since 9 January.
Police said her bank account had been emptied, with "irregular transactions" starting the day after her last e-mail.
It was overdrawn to its maximum amount between 10 and 16 January.
The Foreign Office told the BBC they are working directly with the local police to try and trace Mrs Pope. More here -- http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4682350.stm
