Missing since August 30, 1974 from Snettisham, United Kingdom
Circumstances of Disappearance
Pamela Exall disappeared from a Snettisham's Diglea campsite on August 30, 1974.
Pamela, her brother and a friend, had stopped off at Snettisham for the bank holiday weekend toward the end of a touring and camping holiday. One of them made a phone call from a phone box near the sailing club before the two boys returned to their tent. But Pamela decided to have a walk along the beach because it was a nice night ND that was the last anyone saw of her.
Pamela was last seen at 22.30. Her brother and friend, both 17-year-olds, discovered she was missing when they checked her tent the following morning. All her possessions were still in the tent.
Pamela, who had just graduated as a Bachelor of Arts from Kingston Polytechnic and was hoping to take up a job as a solicitor's articled clerk with Berkshire County Council, had phoned her mum on the Friday evening that the trio arrived at the Diglea site. She told her she had had a lovely holiday, and expected to arrive home at Fleet in Hampshire on the Sunday evening.
Extensive searches in the area where Pamela was last seen found no trace of the missing girl. When Miss Exall, from Fleet, Hampshire, went missing police considered four possible reasons for her disappearances. Along with the possibility she had been abducted and killed, they investigated whether she had been swept away at low tide, fell into a dyke behind the sea bank or she had chosen to disappear. Despite a high profile search, include photographs being distributed across the region, no further evidence was ever found.
