Let's hope that there's a happy ending to this one but it sounds a bit odd.

A bizarre sounding case of a boy found wandering but whose absence appears to have gone unnoticed so far!


Update at 10.07. The parents have been found.

Very sad, a tragic accident it seems...



Missing Boy Died 'After Slipping Into Pipe'
Conley Thompson's grandmother says she is "shellshocked" and describes him as a lovely boy whose "smile could light up a room

http://news.sky.com/story/1526120/missing-boy-died-after-slipping-into-pipe



A seven-year-old boy who was found dead on a building site got trapped after slipping into a pipe, according to his grandmother.

Conley Thompson went missing on Sunday evening after failing to return home from a park in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.
Grandmother Deborah Silverwood said she was "shellshocked" by his death and revealed his family had warned him not to play at the site.
"He got in through a hole at the top and with it raining it was slippy. Apparently he just slipped into a vertical pipe.
"God only knows how that little seven-year-old must have (felt). His brain must have been all over the place trying to get out.
"I know he would have been trying to get out.
"He's been known to go in there before and we've told him not to go in."

The police found the body at around 8.30am on Monday at the site on Bank End Road, Worsbrough.
Officers had been there during the search the previous night and found it "securely locked with a large perimeter fence".

The investigation continues into the cause of Conley's death and we are working with the Health and Safety Executive as part of that investigation," South Yorkshire Police added.
Conley had last been seen at Locke Park at 8pm on Sunday and was reported missing after failing to return to his home on Underwood Avenue, according to police.
But Sky's North of England correspondent Gerard Tubb, reporting from the scene, said: "Now Conley's family say he was not in Locke Park but in a park next to his home.
"Meanwhile, police say he was not reported missing until 10.10pm."
Conley's grandmother described him as "a lovely little lad, boisterous, got into anything and everything but his smile could light up a room".
"It's not even sunken in now that he's gone," Ms Silverwood added.
"I'm stood next to the place where he died and I'm thinking 'what the hell were you doing Conley in a place like this?'"
People have been laying flowers and teddy bears next to the building site.
Wayne Bolton went to the building site his four-year-old son to pay his respects.
He said: "I can't begin to imagine what that family are going through.
"It was such a tragic accident, hopefully, and we just want to show support for the family and to be fair the whole community has turned up.
"It's shocked everyone and everyone is in bits and luckily, in an area like this, everyone comes together and we all help each other."
Formal identification of the body found at the building site has still to take place.

Obviously I hope they find the wee soul but it does seem to be becoming a regular thing these days. Did they ever find the other little boy who was lost in the woods?

There's nothing more recent than this on the first boy.

http://www.inquisitr.com/2301205/deorr-kunz-jr-update-abduction-ruled-out-in-missing-idaho-toddler-case-fbi-brought-in/

How can it not be clear where he was when his parents left? They say that he was with great-granddad but the latter says not!

Another case below which has me going hmmm.......

That is the same story that I posted, Andrew.

To be fair to David Cameron (not something that can be said much) there were two cars involved and each parent thought their daughter was with the other one. It took only a few minutes for the mistake to be realised.

A man was arrested and charged for this, but since then I don't know what has happened.  
This article was a year ago.

Oh yes, I now remember someone being charged. Those of us of a certain age will remember a 60s singer with the same name as the accused man.

Presumably the trial could still be pending.

I don't remember there being any "could this be Madeleine" stories about the girl in Boston.

There was a case in London that has never been solved.
