Missing Student Returned Safely to Hogwarts

A boy reported missing from Hogwarts has returned safely. 

The alarm was raised yesterday when the student did not attend lessons and could not be located, but he has now returned to the school.

School authorities declined to comment further to the Daily Prophet.

New Quake Rocks New Salem

By Roberta Jordan

The tranquility of New Salem was again rocked last night by a brief but distinct trembling of the earth. The tremor itself caused less of a stir than events immediately following, when there were reports of heightened ghost activity.

"I looked out of the window to see what was going on," said Alfred Turbeville, "And all of a sudden I saw this face looking back at me out of the dark."

Whilst some neighbours dismissed Alfred's story as "just Alfred's butterbeer talking", several other similar reports of faces, disturbed pets, ghosts and strange mutterings on the breeze were recorded.

Whilst no damage was reported, the quake seems to have been felt quite widely in other areas across the country, and muggle news reports are carrying details of it also.
