GUYRA. Sunday.

Jean Pearson, 13, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
O. R. Pearson, of Guyra, had an unenviable
experience yesterday, when she became sep-
arated from a family picnic party in the bush
at The Pinch, between Guyra and Armidale.

Jean, her mother, and other members of the
party went in search of ferns. Jean set out
alone to return to her father, who had re-
mained by the car. Some time later the rest
of the family returned, and were surprised to
find that Jean had not reached the car.

Sergeant Unwin, of Guyra, with a party,
commenced a search. The child was found
more than two miles away, making for Black
Mountain. She was greatly distressed, know-
ing that she was lost.
