Christie's husband Archie revealed that he was in love with Nancy Neele, and wanted a divorce. On third December 1926 the couple quarrelled, and Archie left their house Styles in Sunningdale, Berkshire, to spend the weekend with his mistress at Godalming, Surrey. That same evening Agatha disappeared from her home, leaving behind a letter for her secretary saying that she was going to Yorkshire. Her disappearance caused an outcry from the public, many of whom were admirers of her novels. Despite a massive manhunt, she was not found for ten days.
Ten days later Agatha Christie was identified as a guest at the Swan Hydropathic Hotel (now the Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate, Yorkshire, where she was registered as 'Mrs Teresa Neele' from Cape Town.

For 10 days the country was fascinated by her disappearance and a nationwide manhunt was underway.

Agatha was eventually found staying at a hotel in Harrogate (the Swan Hydropathic Hotel, now called the Old Swan Hotel) under the name of Mrs Teresa Neele of Cape Town. Mrs Neele was the name of the woman that Archie Christie had admitted having an affair with. However Agatha Christie's discovery in such strange circumstances raised more questions that answers.

Agatha claimed that she suffered amnesia after a nervous breakdown, following the death of her mother and the end of her marriage. However Agatha Christie never made any mention of this event afterwards, not even in her autobiograph ...more
