she grew up, Sally was determined to find her real father,
but it proved a difficult task. She eventually discovered
that Malcolm had a son, Des Clarke,
from a previous marriage. Sally tracked down Des to Ramsay
The two became very close, particularly since they had both
grown up believing each was an only child. Des invited Sally
to stay with him at No. 28, and she was of enormous help to
him since his wife Daphne was away tending to her sick father.
Des also gave Sally a job at Daphne's Coffee Shop, where Sally

Eileen - who Malcolm had left
for her mother years before.
enlisted Des' help in tracking their father down, despite
initial reluctance from Des. When they finally located Malcolm,
he refused to entertain the notion of getting to know them,

and she shared with local mechanic, Tony Romeo. However, Tony

Eileen two tickets for a trip around Europe, which he had
won on a quiz show. Despite Henry's pleas for Sally to stay
in Erinsborough with him, Sally was keen to travel, and also
wanted to support Eileen in her hour of need, and so, opted
to go. Even catching the bouquet at the wedding of Madge
and Harold Bishop the day
before her departure couldn't persuade Sally to stay and give
things a go with Henry, and she kissed him goodbye, as Henry
pondered what might have been.
