The unnamed Neighbour of Alan and Dorothy Hoyle encountered John Stape in April 2011 after he knocked on their door. Initially uneasy about the stranger as she witnessed him peering through the front window at 3 Mulberry Avenue, Worsley, John explained to her that he was looking for Charlotte's parents.
When the neighbour was satisfied that he was a genuine family friend, since he was able to give the family's surname, she advised him that the Hoyles' would be back home later that day.
