"Well, sure," said Nicole.  "But help me out here.  What's her name?  What does she look like?  Was she kidnapped by the church here, or did she run away with her beau?"

The woman went into another room for a moment and brought back a picture of a girl who looked about sixteen and pretty.

"Here, her name is Tammy. I don't know where she went. She was in her bed one night and gone the next morning."

"Okay... any signs of a break-in?" said Nicole.  "Also, do you have personal items of hers around?  That would help me a lot."

"No, but she did have a room with a large window," the woman said. "Would her comb work?"

"Down this way," the woman said, and heading down the hall.

The room was very clean and well kept.

Nicole investigated it carefully.  Notably, she examined the window, trying to see if there were signs that it had been forced from the outside... or if it had been opened from the inside.

"Is anything of hers missing?" Nicole asked.

It was difficult to tell, the window seemed to be able to be opened both ways.

"I know she was saving some money and that is missing," the woman said.

"What about clothes?" asked Nicole.  "Or personal items?"

It was important to have some idea if she had run away or been stolen, after all.

"None of that is missing as far as I can tell," the woman said.

"All right," said Nicole.  She went around to see if there were any traces left outside the window.

If that didn't work, she might just have to fall back on magic.

Well, that was a start, at least.  Nicole set out to see where they lead.

...well.  She went to follow it for a while, to see if there were any clues, but otherwise, she was going to have to go back to her room to try some magic.

As you get closer and closer to the ocean, you find lots of strips of what could be human skin, but you can't be sure.

...Interesting.  Nicole pocketed a scrap; it might be important.  And then she followed along the path.  Maybe she'd find something.  Maybe not.

You notice a glitter coming from some coins in the water, quite a few of them.

...possibly important.  Possibly income.  Nicole's demon hands gathered them up.

The coins appeared to be gold and quite old as well.

Nicole took a moment to study them further.  Were they Spanish gold?  Gold dollars?  Or something stranger...?
