I'm surprised they haven't managed to locate him in the last 9 weeks.

He must've took a lot of cash with him to be sufficient as presumably if he used a bank card they'd be able to trace him quite quickly.

Very strange indeed.

I missed that bit.

His father added: "If you don't want to ring home there's a charity called Missing People.


If he called them then they'd probably actually tell him to stay missing.

ETA - had to look it up on the website to see if there was a reference to him. There is.

I wonder what happened to this boy - who reminds me of my son at that age - who disappeared clearly of his own volition nine years ago.

Beware, there is mention of the McCanns in this link.

Certainly is a very baffling one about Andrew Gosden. A very bright and clever young boy by all accounts. But bright enough to disappear undetected all this time.... scratch

Sadly I don't think he's alive.

Missing grammar school boy Arthur Heeler-Frood could be using survival tips from TV adventurer Bear Grylls to live in the wild and may have ‘picked up’ methods to avoid detection from the Jason Bourne spy films, his father revealed yesterday.

That's good to hear - I hope that whatever caused him to leave in the first place isn't still unresolved though.

Speaking generally, teenagers returned home against their will aren't likely to stay there for long.

Apparently one of the reasons was because he was bored.

I was bored last thursday so i went to Asda and spent over £100 on nothing that i needed,i should have just ran away it probably would have been cheaper.

I'm pleased he has now been found,he was gone a long time.

A strange one:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4003022/Police-launch-huge-manhunt-missing-boy-two-toddler-asleep-home-brother-s-bunk-bed.html

A missing two-year-old boy sparked a major police search only to be found asleep on his brother's bunk bed all along.
Logan Markland had been playing with his four brothers and sister on Sunday afternoon but suddenly disappeared, causing the family to panic.
His parents Samantha Cadman and James Markland, of Swinton, Greater Manchester, frantically searched the house - shouting his name and looking everywhere for the toddler.
They even recruited neighbours and their children to head out with torches to try and find the tot.
A Greater Manchester Police tactical aid unit arrived with several police officers who also searched the home but were unable to find him.
Ms Cadman, 28, a secretary, said: 'I went to check where Logan was, thinking he was asleep upstairs, but he wasn't there.
'I shouted "Where's Logan?" So we searched all the bedrooms, everywhere. But he wasn't there.'
She then rushed to the police station to see if anyone had spotted him and taken him there.
Ms Cadman, a secretary, added: 'He was reported as missing straight away and they sent every available officer out on the street to find him, even doing car stops to ask if people had seen him.

'I just kept thinking of all the things that could have happened. It was all running through my mind. You just think the worst.'
Back at the house Mr Markland was with five police officers who also searched the house.

Mr Markland, 44, a floor layer said, after 40 'agonising' minutes Logan was discovered by the other children in his brother's bunk bed.
He said: 'We heard the children shout "There he is!" so I rushed to the bottom of the stairs and he is sat on the top step rubbing his eye almost as to say, "what's all this going on here".'
They asked where he had been so he pointed to the top bunk of his brothers' bed

His parents said he is advanced for his age and is able to climb easily onto the top bunk.
Mr Markland added: 'Relieved is not the word. It was awful going through that. It was humbling the help we had from everyone.'
Ms Cadman said she was told while she was at the police station and added: 'I thanked them and apologised for causing so much mayhem. I got back and Logan was looking at me as if to say "what's the problem"? Luckily it ended well.'
At the height of the search Greater Manchester Police urged people to help keep lookout for the boy on the Swinton Facebook page, before writing: 'The missing toddler from Swinton has been found safe and well. Fast asleep in his siblings top bunk bed.'

Another one 'disappeared' from Bury St Edmonds. Although I don't think they're related in any shape or form.

There's a couple of articles on it on page 3 of the 'Gang Probe' thread. I put them on there as like with most missing children articles they shoehorn Madeleine into it.

Sorry about that, I missed those links at the time.

As far as I'm aware - I have a good memory for names - this case received no publicity whatsoever in the U K at the time (or at any time since until now) and neither did that of the 3 Beaumont children who vanished from a beach four years earlier.

A bit more from the Sun on it in their latest article:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2341500/cheryl-grimmer-british-girl-snatched-madeleine-mccann-australia/

They've only managed to mention the name Madeleine McCann 3 times in this article though.

She's been found. Well turned up after a bender by the looks of it.

She should get in trouble for wasting everyone's time, IMO.

I think it's been mentioned here before - another one with surprisingly little publicity at the time and in subsequent years.
