In 1926, crime writer Agatha Christie disappeared from her home in Surrey and was missing for eleven days. Other famous writers at the time, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle amassed search parties to look for her, until she was found in Harrogate at the Old Swan Hotel. She had no recollection as to why she was there, and it still remains a mystery to this day.
