Thank you for that, Bampots. An inevitable end to the story sadly.

I wonder if the boy in the above link will ever be found.

It may be 50 years but the inspector Des Bray said that they still have had 160 call concerning the missing children over the last couple of years....amazing!

The parents have now been named official suspects in the Deorr case....Police and two P.I's now all seem to be saying the same thing (they aren't being truthful)

I found this piece in yesterday's Guardian, about a Chinese girl adopted as a baby by a wealthy Spanish couple and found murdered aged 12, a very interesting but tragic read.
Comments have been disabled – after some apparent controversy – so I've no idea what the readership made of it. The veteran local TV journalist who became the couple's "spokeswoman" gave me pause. Journalists and other influential people should really wait for the facts to emerge before wading in with their personal verdicts. Not that it seems to have made much difference in this case.

Interesting story.

Though it does seem as if Asunta was happy with most of the studying and other things she did, I cringe when I hear of parents who push their children into activities which perhaps they wanted to do (but didn't) when they were young.

I do think that some people give in to pressure from family and friends to have children themselves and then end up resentful because it wasn't really their own decision.

Agreed. It's a great pity, as this couple clearly had plenty of money, that they didn't just throw some at the 'problem' and send their daughter off to boarding school. At least poor Asunta would still be alive.

From the cam recording of her, she was walking purposefully as if she had a goal or venue in mind. It`s a real mystery what would cause her to do that.

IIRC, the original CCTV footage was shown sped up and gave the impression she was walking faster than she was.

I am trying very hard to think of any case worldwide where a child (other than newborn babies or where one parent is involved) has been abducted and found safe years later, not having being subjected to horrendous abuse like Jaycee Dugard and Steven Stayner.

It makes me cringe to hear of cases compared to Madeleine's when they have so similarity at all.

                                   Body discovered in Malheiro ends hunt for missing teen Rodrigo Lapa

The week long hunt for missing Portimão teenager Rodrigo Lapa has ended in the worst possible way this morning, as police have discovered a body next to the house he shared with his mother, baby sister and stepfather in Malheiro, Portimão.

 For now, the details are being kept to a minimum as news channels report on the desperately sad ending to a hunt that began last Monday evening, after Rodrigo’s mother Célia Barreto reported him missing.

But the story so far will now be minutely ‘reviewed’ to see where inconsistencies lie. For example, when was Rodrigo last seen by anyone other than immediate family members?

According to mother Célia, the 15-year-old left the house at 7am last Monday on his way to school. But no-one appears to have seen him on the route he is purported to have taken - and now, of course, it looks very much like he never set out on it.

 Yesterday, Correio da Manhã carried the report from a schoolmate saying that Rodrigo had texted him to say he was ill on Friday, and then “didn’t turn up at school on Monday”.

Thus police will be looking now at a possibly very different scenario to the one given to them last week. As television news commentators are explaining this morning, the next step will be an autopsy to discover how, and indeed when, the youngster died.

“It seems highly likely that this was a murder,” Rui Pereira has been telling CMTV. “And then it will be up to the PJ police to gather information pointing to what happened and who may have been responsible.”

Hours before the missing child’s body was found, national tabloid Correio da Manhã was running with a story on its inside pages confirming that police were not expecting to find Rodrigo alive.

 Mother Célia, 40, was quoted as saying: “I have hope that he is alive because nothing yet has been found to tell me that Rodrigo is dead.”

 Célia Barreto was also quoted as saying she hoped people would not “jump to conclusions from what they may have heard”. She was talking to CM after having been called in for questioning for the third time - but as she explained: “Of course we need to be heard by the police. Our head is hot, because sometimes we don’t remember certain things.” CM has explained that Rodrigo’s stepfather returned to Brazil on the day the boy was reported missing.

The trip was “considered suspicious” by the PJ, says CM, and detectives are now “analysing in detail” the relationship between Rodrigo and his stepfather over the days preceding the latter’s flight. But as investigations now hone in on the most tragic end to a week-long search, Rodrigo’s friends at the Estômbar school where he was studying to be a chef will be remembering him as the “calm boy” who “got on with everyone” and who disappeared suddenly, leaving them all sad and bewildered.

Really sad but all too predictable. Fifteen year olds are hard work even when you have a good and strong relationship. They push the boundarys they need to push and although its difficult they need to do it and need your support most then - even if they they don't like it now they will later. Adding a step father into the mix in some cases can bring in a missing father figure but often adds to the confusion and resentment. So sad. Gutted to see the outcome of this case. It brings home the need to cherish, understand and protect my own teenagers.

Off topic but I saw a programme some years ago about two babies in South Africa who were switched accidentally soon after birth.

http://www.parent24.com/Pregnant/Birth/birth_old/Switched-at-birth-20121016

The programme I saw was made in around 2000 and the boys were then happy to stay with their "wrong" mothers and visit the "right" ones as often as they could.

Now I see that they ended up both living with the biological mother of one of them. A sad ending for the other mother who now has no child at all.

Just been reading about this tragic case about a missing baby that was sadly found not long after.

Body Of Missing Toddler Found Near River
The discovery is made near Gosport, Indiana, after a massive search operation involving more than 100 people.
10:57, UK,
Friday 25 March 2016
Man arrested after body of missing girl found
Shaylyn Ammerman went missing from her father's home in Spencer, Indiana


Authorities have found a body thought to be that of a one-year-old girl who went missing from her father's home in Indiana.

State police spokesman Curt Durnil said that the body, which matches the description of Shaylyn Ammerman, was found on Thursday night near the White River, Gosport.

An autopsy will take place on Friday at Owen County coroner's office.

Shaylyn disappeared from her father's home in Spencer on Wednesday, triggering a search by more than 100 people involving the FBI, Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

A 22-year-old man from Spencer has been arrested in connection with her disappearance, Mr Durnil said.

Investigators know the man was in the house on the night Shaylyn disappeared.

Mr Durnil said: "We don't know if he is a family member or a friend. But he was invited into the house."

The girl's father, Justin Ammerman, and grandmother Tamera Morgan were the last people to see Shaylyn late on Tuesday night.

She had been staying at Mr Ammerman's home 50 miles from Indianapolis under a joint custody arrangement.

Ms Morgan said: "I put her to bed around 10:00 or 10:30 and I checked on her at midnight before I went to bed.

"She was laying in her bed sound asleep, and then we went to bed and we woke up and she was gone."

Mr Ammerman said he was "shocked that somebody would do this to me" and said he believes someone took his daughter from her crib.


... and a bit more info on it from this.

A Spencer, Indiana, man was arrested following the discovery on Thursday of the body of a 1-year-old girl who went missing Tuesday.
Kyle Parker, 22, of Spencer, Indiana, was arrested and being held in connection with the toddler’s death, according to a press release.
USA Today reports that the body of Shaylyn Ammerman, the 1-year-old Spencer, Indiana, girl, was found just after 6 p.m. Thursday in a wooded area northeast of Gosport, Indiana, State Police confirmed.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Shaylyn was last seen sometime before 8 a.m. Wednesday, prompting a search by more than 100 people, including a search-and-rescue team, FBI agents, Indiana Department of Natural Resources staff, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, according to ABC News.
Indiana State Police Sgt. Curt Durnil said investigators were led to a remote area of private property, where Indiana Creek meets the White River in south-central Indiana, after “interviewing persons of interest” in the case.
“Information from witnesses and persons of interest led us to that spot.”
According to the release, an autopsy is scheduled for Friday by the Owen County coroner’s office to positively identify the girl and determine the cause of death. Crime scene investigators continue to process the scene where the Spencer, Indiana, toddler’s body was discovered.

According to Shaylyn’s grandmother, Tamera Morgan, she put the girl to bed in her home around 8 p.m. Tuesday and checked on her frequently until about 1:30 a.m. when she went to bed.
Morgan confirmed that the 15-month-old girl’s father, Justin Ammerman, was in the residence with his daughter that night, along with his brother, father, and Parker, who has been preliminarily charged with obstruction of justice, unlawful disposal of a dead body, and failure to report a dead body, according to staff at the jail.
Morgan said she was awakened Wednesday morning to the screams of her son asking her if she had Shaylyn with her.
“He yelled, ‘Mom, do you have Shaylyn?’ I said, ‘Of course, I do not have her. I went directly to her bed. It was empty.”

As a person of interest, Ammerman took a polygraph test in Indianapolis on Thursday to rule him out, Morgan said, adding that her son would never harm his daughter.
“The only explanation is that someone came in and took her.”
Parker’s criminal record includes charges of drug possession, criminal trespassing, and illegal consumption of alcohol, according to court records.

The Indianapolis Star reports that despite Parker’s arrest, the investigation is still ongoing, and others in the home the night Shaylyn went missing are not in the clear just yet, according to Durnil.
“Let me be really frank here. Please don’t feel like because we’ve found a body and we’ve made an arrest that this case is anywhere near over. This case is just getting started with more interviews, with more investigative tactics with everything that we have at our disposal we will use to bring those who are responsible for this little girl’s death to justice.”

According to Morgan, the door to the residence in Spencer, Indiana, was unlocked that night.
