It sounds as grim as was feared when it was first learned that two men had been arrested.

This is a strange case of a woman in Northumberland who walked out of her home in the middle of the night six days ago.

Happy new year all.

Yes Freedom, The Sally Allen one is weird with many oddities. Another one is Adrian Lynch that is still missing in Jersey. Many questionable things in this case!

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.
