A reminder of the only case (as far as I'm aware) of a missing baby in the U K who has never been found.

The McCanns have been shoe-horned into the second link and some of the references to them are nauseating!

I heard of this case today for the first time - maybe it will be known to our Irish members.

His mother just about carries on by believing that he will be found one day.

Fears are growing for an 11-year-old schoolgirl who has gone missing overnight.
Winnie Maughan, from Epsom, Surrey, was last seen leaving her school at about 3pm on Wednesday.
Officers from Surrey Police say they are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare.
Winnie is described as white with freckles and long black hair.
She is likely to be wearing her school uniform of a black jacket, white blouse, black tie, shoes and tights.
She may also be carrying her black rucksack.

You probably heard about the missing young lad at the country estate with the barn fire that's been in the news of late.

Tragically they've just found his body:

I hadn't heard of that one.

What a dreadful story is this one too. Imagine the father finding his own teenagers and four others dead.

I read about that yesterday in the DM I think it was.

My first thoughts that it was a sort of tragic drug-taking experiment that went wrong.

Horrific stuff.

It was carbon monoxide poisoning as first thought.

I don't think I've heard about this missing woman before:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4180102/Woman-disappeared-year-ago-police-NO-clues.html

Grandmother, 57, disappeared 12 months ago and police still have NO clues despite the force’s biggest ever search
Missing mother Lorraine Ridout, 57, disappeared on January 31, 2016 in Cardiff
Despite police search helped by friends and family no clues have been found
Almost 1,000 lines of inquiry have been pursued by South Wales Police officers
It is the most extensive urban search South Wales Police has ever undertaken

I'm sure Ben Savage was mentioned on here somewhere before (young lad missing after a night out), but anyway sadly he's just been found:

A bizarre and tragic one:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4196984/Police-crash-driver-s-body-site-three-weeks-later.html

Police searching for a driver who disappeared after his car crashed through a motorway barrier find his body next to the site - three WEEKS later
Zahida Mirza's car crashed on the M6 in the West Midlands on January 15
The car had crashed through a barrier and was found abandoned nearby
West Midlands Police launched a search operation to find the 40-year-old
He was discovered at the scene of the crash last night - three weeks later
Police they would now refer its handling of the investigation to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), as is usual in such circumstances

Never heard about this lad before going missing on Crete:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4234446/Remains-Greek-resort-man-vanished.html

Could a camera hold the key to what happened to a British tourist who disappeared on a Greek island 12 years ago? Workmen discover skeleton next to disposable device
Steven Cook vanished on a night out with friends in the resort of Malia in 2005
Workmen have now found a skeleton down a well which is being examined
A camera was discovered next to the remains and police are investigating
Islanders believe it may be Steven because there are very few unsolved missing persons in Crete

I don't know if this load of old baloney from 2 years ago has already been posted; the one good thing about it is that it doesn't mention the McCanns.

Couple are arrested on suspicion of negligence manslaughter and neglect seven months after five-year-old boy drowned in water park
Charlie Dunn, five, was found at Bosworth Water Park in Leicestershire
He was pulled from water after going to play in the park with sister, eight
Charlie was recognised because of the cartoon Minions shorts he wore
Parents were arrested on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter

By MARTIN ROBINSON, UK CHIEF REPORTER FOR MAILONLINE
PUBLISHED: 10:20, 13 March 2017 | UPDATED: 10:21, 13 March 2017

Tragedy: Five-year-old Charlie Dunn, from Tamworth, Staffordshire, died on 23 July 2016 following an incident at Bosworth Water Park, near Hinckley, Leicestershire

A man and a woman have been arrested after a boy drowned in a water park.

Five-year-old Charlie Dunn, from Tamworth, Staffordshire, died on 23 July 2016 following an incident at Bosworth Water Park, near Hinckley, Leicestershire.

At the time his mother Lynsey Dunn, 28, and step-father Paul Smith, 35, were taken into custody on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence.

They were initially released on bail before charges against them were dropped in December.

But today a man in his 30s and a woman in her 20s have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence. They have also been arrested on suspicion of child neglect.

Police would not confirm if Charlie's parents have been re-arrested.

A Leicestershire Police spokesman said: 'A man and woman have this morning been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence.

'It follows an incident at Bosworth Water Park, near Hinckley, on 23 July 2016, in which five-year-old Charlie Dunn, who came from Tamworth, drowned.

'They have also been arrested on suspicion of child neglect.

'The man, who is in his 30s, and the woman, who is in her 20s, were arrested in Staffordshire this morning.'

My son received a begging letter today from the Children's Society.

"This month 6,904 children in England will have no choice than to run away from home". What a very precise figure - 6,904, not getting on for 7,000 - and is this every single month or just March 2017?

Money will of course help the society to deal with all these runaways including 15-year-old Maddie whose home was full of arguments and violence. I haven't made that up!  

Here's how to donate. www.childrenssociety.org.uk/donatemaddie

Can I politely say... Well I do apologise for speaking out of turn... but it's a load of bollox.

Charities (exist only) for folk to donate. Anything or something...

If diddly then it folds. And so does the whole business set-up.

Investors won't risk that monkey business.
