The Scottish Daily Mail featured an article about the Edinburgh-born singer, discussing her disappearance. Just a few days later, they released the article again but this time with a postscript. It turned out that Shelagh McDonald herself had seen the article and had made a trip to the newspaper’s office.
During her visit she had explained the truth behind where she had been for all of these years. On the final night that she was seen, she had been partying and taken a strong dose of LSD. As a result, she went on a trip that changed her life.
