Professional Quidditch Seeker Missing, Foul Play Assumed
Conspiculously missing from yesteday's game against Tutshill was Holyhead Harpies Seeker Alicia Spinnet. Upon investigation, it has been discovered that a missing persons report has been filed with the Ministry of Magic in regards to Miss Spinnet, whose friends suspect foul play.
"Ali isn't the type who'd disappear," One close friend said.
Spinnet, who only moved up from her time on the reserves at the beginning of this season, has been harmed by nefarious activity before. Heroically involved in the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998, Miss Spinnet was assumed dead for two years following the battle while she was held captive by escaped followers of You-Know-Who.
When asked, business tycoon and longtime friend Fred Weasley had this to say. "We don't have to mince words. It's Amycus Carrow who's got her, and if the Auros can't find her, her friends will. We've done it once before."
A source within the Ministry reports that Minister of Magic Shacklebolt himself, who of course fought alongside Spinnet and others in the Battle of Hogwarts, has taken a personal interest in the case. Anyone with knowledge of the whereabouts of Alicia Spinnet or Amycus Carrow is asked to report to Department of Magical Law Enforcement immediately.
