This seems a bit unlikely. How did the alleged abductor know there was a baby in the house? I suppose she could have followed the mother.

You really couldn't have made this one up.

Actually that's just what Wild West Hogs did with his name!

All ends well for once.

http://portugalresident.com/two-year-old-boy-vanishes-from-outside-grandparents%E2%80%99-house-in-our%C3%A9m

PJ police are investigating the disappearance earlier today of a two-year-old boy from outside his grandparents’ house in the village of Amieira, near Urqueira (Ourém) around 9 am this morning.

For now, the estranged father of the child - resident in France - is not a suspect.

Photographs of Martim Silva are being widely shared on television and via social media, while family members have publicised their mobile phone numbers in a desperate bid for any kind of news.

Information coming via various sources suggests "all possibilities" are being considered.

What is curious is that Martim's mother Sandrina was only awarded custody of her son on Friday. Martim's father is reported to have travelled to Portugal for the hearing. Family members are thus unsure whether he is still in Portugal, or whether he may have sent someone to pick his child up.

Sandrina has described her son as very sweet, the kind of child who would go happily with anyone who was kind to him.

Observador has said that Martim was wearing a blue fleece and grey sweatpants when he went missing.

As PJ police interview family members, agents with sniffer dogs have already been on the ground.

Glad the little one has been found safe and well.

Something fishy involving parental involvement by the looks of it.

OMG just read the second link, what a terrible story, what must that little boy have suffered. Sad   It breaks your heart reading these stories, jeez there are some evil people out there.  They should now be kept the way that poor little boy was kept.

I'm wondering if there is more than meets the eye with the story about the teenagers.

The other story is dreadful.

This was always a bizarre one - Charlene Downes who went missing in Blackpool 13 years ago, never to be seen again.

Just in the news again this morning.

No idea where to put this article but will put it here:

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/worried-parents-fearing-missing-children-9174096

Lifeguards at a British beach where seven people died last summer claim they are being stretched by parents thinking their missing children are the next "Madeleine McCann or Ben Needham".

Rother District Council officer Robert Cass told an inquest another difficulty for lifeguards at Camber Sands beach, East Sussex, was an increase in the number of people unable to understand English.

As many as 25,000 people can use the beach on a single day.

Rother District Council officer Robert Cass said it takes up "a lot of our time" because the rightfully worried parents are "thinking they have the next Ben Needham or Maddie McCann."

I'm not sure what to make of that one!

It's interesting though to see the two missing children's names linked together like that - it may give more people the idea that each case is as dubious as the other.

I make it out to be an absolute ridiculous story that's been made up on the spot and why now. For a start at this time of the year, this particular beach will be deserted.

So on a hot summers day weekend the beach probably is packed and kids are playing, then some might wander off out of their parents sight for a few moments. Any stories about these kids actually going missing? No because they didn't. Then we have a story about 7 people in total, teenagers and adults that have sadly drowned there in the past.

If these kids do go out of sight for a few moments and the parents rush to the lifeguard or whatever, then do they really say my kid was playing over there but now he's wandered off, I think she/he is the next Madeleine or Ben...... I doubt it.

A nonsense story.

There was a lot of speculation at the time that it was would-be migrants who were washed up on the beach. This seems to be a retrofitting effort to prove that was not the case, with a Maddie/Ben angle thrown in to get people to actually read it.

Just watched Richard D Hall. Didn't agree with all he said - I suspect something different became of Ben - but I do agree that there is a coordinated attempt to bracket the two cases together in people's minds. Hence them turning up together in stories that don't have anything to do with either of them, like this one for instance.

I didn't catch his conspiracy theory about media involvement etc but regarding the actual story mentioned which is this....

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-37835937

... then it's not exactly appealing to your average 'Mirror' reader so they jazz it up a bit and shoehorn the names of the 2 most famous 'missing' children in so it attracts the desired clickbait.

I think that many of us will have had feelings of wanting to get away for a new life when we were teenagers - and maybe when we were older too.

This lad seemed to know exactly what he was doing but the worry is how will he find the means to support himself - including somewhere to live - at 15?
