Reminds me of this very spooky case just a few miles from me in Surrey:I recently watched one of those US "missing" episodes on the telly. Happened mid 2000's. A married couple who worked different shifts, so sometimes a couple of days went by before they saw each other. Husband gets a call to say wife hasn't turned up for work. No trace of her for 24 hours so he tries to report her as missing, but Police won't accept the report since too soon. He tries several times, searches the roads, badgers the Police, who get a call to say husband is suspicious. He is brought in for questioning when Police find wife upside down in her car in a dense wooded area adjacent to the road she used to get to work. She had gone off the road but amazingly with serious injuries and a week after she had crashed, she was still alive and survived. The husband had travelled that road several times without finding her and if it hadn't been for his badgering the Police the conclusion was that it would be unlikely that she would have been found.
Does make you wonder how many disappeared are lying in a crashed car somewhere not yet found. A few have been found at the bottom of lakes in the past as well.
