Police to open up grave in search for missing schoolgirl Moira Anderson
Police will today begin to open a family grave in the search for the remains of a schoolgirl who vanished almost 56 years ago.
Moira Anderson was 11 when she went missing from her home in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire, in February 1957 while running an errand for her grandmother.
It is widely believed that she was abducted and murdered, but her body has never been found.
The case remains unsolved, although convicted paedophile Alexander Gartshore, (pic below) a Coatbridge bus driver who died in 2006, has been connected with the disappearance.
He was jailed for four years for raping his family’s 13-year-old babysitter but never questioned about Moira’s disappearance.
