Speak to Edmond, who can be found in the garden behind his house in the western part of East Ardougne

He will inform you of his missing daughter, Elena and that is she is somewhere in West Ardougne. Offer to help find her, and then enter the house and talk to the Alrena. She'll agree to make you a gas mask if you bring her some dwellberries, which can be found in McGrubor's Forest west of Seers' Village.

Give the dwellberries to Alrena and she will make you a gas mask. Pick up the portrait of Elena that is on the table, and then speak to Edmond again.

Getting into West Ardougne

Edmond will give you some direction on how to get into West Ardougne. Use four buckets of water on the mud patch and dig a tunnel.

Head past Edmond to the end of the tunnel and attempt to pull on the grill of the sewer pipe. You will not be able to do it alone, so talk to Edmond and he will advise you to put some rope on it. Do so, and together you will be able to pull the grill off.

Finding Elena

Making sure you are wearing your gas mask, climb up through the pipe to arrive in West Ardougne.

Locate Jethick, and show him the portrait of Elena you picked up earlier. He will inform that she is staying with the Rehnison Family who's house is in the north, and will give you a book to return to them.

Make your way to the north and find the house with Rehnison family members inside, and try to open the door. Ted will not allow you in, but upon hearing you have a book to return, will be more welcoming and allow you in.

Upon entry to the house, talk to Ted again and he will tell you that his daughter Milli saw Elena being taken by shadowy figures. Go upstairs and talk to Milli who will inform you that she saw Elena taken to a boarded up windowless building in the south west area.

Finding the Head Mourner

Find your way to the south west side of West Ardougne and locate the house with a staircase in. Attempt to go inside and a Mourner will stop you, warning the house has been touched with plague.

Inform him that you believe there is a kidnapped victim inside, but the Mourner will tell you that even a kidnapper wouldn't go in there, and that you will require clearance from the Head Mourner, Barek, to enter.

Head in a north east direction and enter a large building to the north to locate the Clerk. Request permission from him to enter a plagued house, and he will tell you that only Mourners can do that. Respond by asking him Surely you don't let them run everything for you? The Clerk will then say Bravek would step in on the unlikely case that the Mourners did something wrong. Ask if you could see Bravek on a matter of urgency.

Climb upstairs and take the door to the east and Bravek will tell you he has a hangover and his head is too sore. Ask him for the recipie for the hangover cure, and he will give you a note.

Making the Hangover Cure

Use chocolate dust with a bucket of milk, and then add snape grass to the mixture to create a hangover cure. Give this to Bravek, and after telling him They won't listen to me, he will give you a clearance to enter the house.

Return back to the boarded up windowless building in the south west area and present your clearance note. Climb downstairs and you will find Elena. Talk to her through the cell to learn that she saw the Mourners hiding a key. Search through the barrels upstairs until you find it, and then free Elena. She will explain how she was on her way to East Ardougne to process some samples in hope of finding a cure for the plague, and will then ask you to return to her father.

Exit through the manhole and give Edmond the good news.
