Jenny Pope’s bank account emptied.

Her cash card was used to withdraw the equivalent of £2,500 over one week and the account was closed after it exceeded its £1,500 overdraft limit.

It is not known if the 50-year-old nurse – who has vanished on a solo backpacking holiday – withdrew the money herself or if someone else has gained access to her account.

Throughout her journey, she Mrs Pope withdrew only 20 US dollars a day for spending money to prevent her becoming a target for robbers. But analysis of her bank account has revealed a series of withdrawals of up to 200 US dollars which started the day after she last contacted her family.

The following was Jenny’s last entry in her Journal.

Hola Chicos! In the last entry I think I left you at the point where I was about to move from Cochabamba. Well….. Never trust a Bolivian Bus company – they tell lies and rip you off!
