Yeah, there could either be foulplay. Or he is a coward and concerned for his own safety.

Gosh... I cannot imagine leaving that place... If I were him, I might have struggled till my last breathe or till I turn mad to laugh at myself.

Re: So your son gets kidnapped, what do you do?

when the mother and father where interviewed somthing just didn't look right, he was far too keen to point out he didn't have 100,000 (eg please send me money) and why would kidnappers ask for 100,000 ? surely they would ask for local currency?

And the mother just didn't looked shocked or upset, the tears just looked false, much like when the mccanns or Shannon Matthews parents where interviewed

Re: So your son gets kidnapped, what do you do?

The article seems to be suggesting he was kidnapped by relatives, or someone known to the family, so the dad may sorta know where the kid is, or at least, who is responsible.

Still, doesn't look good leaving the country.

Interesting to see the police didn't initialy react. Much to speculate on, but little actual information.

Sorry, you guys are all out of line. Pure speculation. Just watching CSI doesn't make you kidnapping experts or psychologists. When there are hard facts in this story, then you can use them to form a valid theory and I'll throw in my $ 0.02 at that time.

Are you a parent? would you fly thousands of miles away from the most precious thing in your life if it / they where in mortal danger?

With news stories like this its usually what the press don't say / arn't allowed to say thats the real story.

The police wanted the father to say, he has left (without his son) thats a pretty damning story.

In Germany sometime in the 90's there was a spate of fires in German residential homes that coincided with a spate of arson on homes of Turkish families. The most amazing thing - at least in the time period I was watching was that Daddy Turk would invariably get killed trying to rescue his children - even if they were "only" girls (just to get that out of the way) whilst Daddy German would stand outside whilst waiting for the fire brigade to come.

Whatever my personal feelings about this issue I would imagine that there are cultural issues that strongly influence values systems that should be looked at before passing judgement.

Like what ? Like what cultural issue would make a father steal his wife's passport so she couldnt leave the country (which is what he did on his way out), have the son "kidnapped" and then flee to England which has a noticably softer jail sentence for criminal activity.

Cultueral influences my foot. He was part of the inside job, he's about to get busted and he's running away.

Ive never heard such rubbish. Cultural issues considered before passing judgement, whatever next ? Let him off because he's of a higher caste perhaps ?

Re: So your son gets kidnapped, what do you do?

well the news story has been expanded since the link, they are now saying they think someone in the family had somthing todo with it, and that the father has left pakistan but relatives in the uk don't know where he is.

again make of that what you will.

but even the bbc are printing as much as they can without saying its all been a scam.

sky are being about as subtle as a brick, as always lol

Completely agree - I thought there was something odd about the McCann case from the outset - I'm convinced they had something to do with it - who goes out to dinner leaving children that young alone in the first place - especially when there are babysitting services provided on the site.

This case too seems very set up - I am amazed at the lengths people will go to and the trauma they will unleash on their children for greed. Look at the couple in the US who claimed their little boy had gone up in a home made hot air balloon see this if you didn't hear about it at the time http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/Wor...00910315406702

Re: So your son gets kidnapped, what do you do?

Maybe they got in contact with Kate and Gerry McCann who, for a consultancy fee, advised the best course of action to fleece the public for hundreds of thousands.
