Re: Missing children

Sadly, I have to agree, lets hope that we are proven wrong.

Re: Missing children

Do any of you remember Sarah Oberson who lived in the village of Saxon, VS? She disappeared on 28th September, 1985, aged just 8 years, when enroute to visit her grandmother. She never arrived at her grandmother's house, and has never been seen since.

Re: Missing children

Mark Bridger, the man arrested on suspicion of abduction has now been arrested on suspicion of murder. Everything is still being done to try and find April.
So sad.

They still live in Saxon, and Sarah is still officially listed as a missing person.

Re: Missing children

The latest news in the April case is that Mark Bridger has been charged with murder, child abduction and perverting the course of justice.

I hope for the sake of the family that at least poor little April's body is found.

This is heartbreaking.

Re: Missing children

Heard about it in the news today, they say they are no longer looking for the girl alive but for her dead body. What horror. Worst parents' nightmare.

How can they charge him with murder if no body has been found yet and he hasn't confessed?

These are the things that haunt every parent as it isn't random strangers that worry me, it's someone like this guy who has kids of his own who play with yours and nobody thinks twice about....JFC on a pogo stick my heart goes out to that child and her mother.

I guess most of it is kept away from the media but they must have enough to charge him. The *&!£$$*@ is probably toying with them and not disclosing the whereabouts of the body.

Re: Missing children

They also flew in some specialist/profiler who was also involved in the Madeleine Cann case. So I ask myself why they take him in again, since Maddie's case has not been solved.

Re: Missing children

The State Prosecutor of Wales (not sure if that is his exact title), has just issued a statement informing the public that the police have sufficient evidence to charge the man in custody with murder, abduction and perverting the course of justice. He will appear in Court on Monday.

A special service will be held for April Jones at her local church at 12.00 noon (CET) today.

Re: Missing children

Well, another year has gone, poor April Jones is certainly dead, and Madeleine McCann still missing.
Thinking of Madeleine, and her family.

Re: Missing children

Nearly 10 years on, £11.1m spent and still nothing. It's time for the police to call a halt to the McCann investigation imho.

If she was your child would you think that?

I am still hoping Madeleine will one day be found.

Re: Missing children

As a parent, obviously not. But I have to ask why this case gets more money than any other - for example Ben Needham. As of 2015 only £800,000 had been spent over 20+ years trying to find him. Last year another £500,000+ was spent searching a farmhouse, but even so that total is only around £1.5m. I expect the figures for searches for other missing UK nationals - adults as well as kids - is even less.

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/madeleine-m...t-year-1522991

But as I'm not a parent then I have to say that unfortunately this money could and should have been used for other purposes such as anti-terrorism.

Can only hope that this latest development will finally bring the matter to a close - one way or the other.

Re: Missing children

Many of the people doing the searching would otherwise have been training, attending courses, sitting about in the office.

These figures for costs are mostly calculated on "what if something happened.." We have paid for the police and their dogs already, if they are actually doing some useful work, it doesn't cost us anything extra.
