I wonder how much they got for that load of tripe then....

And that's a genuine question. A few hundred squids maybe? 4 figures even?

It's more or less identical to the Mail's version.

I don't know what the situation is as regards payment if stories are copied in different papers.

There's another one here.

If I had to make a guess as to the origin of the story, I would say that it was thought up by a man/men trying to prove that children can be abducted from right under your nose.

A suitable family is found and given a freebie holiday in return for appearing in the papers.

I say man/men plotted this because our damsel in distress and her child had to be rescued from the nefarious cleaner by her boyfriend.

It never occurred that a mother would defend her own child rather than needing someone big and manly to rescue them so, when this was questioned, they needed to come up with an excuse and quickly. The best they could come up with is that she was naked.

IMO and just purporting a theory

The story is certainly a figment of somebody's imagination!

Interestingly, there is no mention of where in the U K the family lives. Do they even exist in those names?

Siobhan Prescott, 25, claims she woke to find her one-year-old daughter Harper crying as a dark-haired woman in her 40s attempted to pick her up out of her cot at the five star King Evelthon Beach and Hotel Resort in Chloraca Bay, Cyprus.

The horrified mother claims she was powerless to react because she was sleeping naked, so screamed out for her partner Simon Smith who was on the balcony of their room.

There is no such place as Chloraca Bay. The hotel does exist however and is about a 5 minute drive from me.

A quick check of FB brings up the story on SWNS which is based around Bristol so maybe they are from that area.

I really think that attention seeking idiots like the two in this latest non-story should be prosecuted for wasting everyone's time.

It looks like another case where the name of Madeleine has been shoe-horned in when there is little, if any, similarity between the two.

Apart from this article then there is absolutely nothing on the WWW regarding Tereza Baniaroiva.....

So I think it's made up.

And (without sounding awful) then that picture looks made up as well.... Somebody playing about with the 'right eye' a bit....

Now where have I seen that before... scratch

I did wonder about the strange looking eyes; there is mention of an accident on a train when she was younger but only a scar is mentioned and I can't see that myself.

P.S. There are some links to her; here is one. I can see the scar, I thought it was her hair at first.

Thanks for the additional info then folks. So not a made-up Star story then although no coincidence they've plucked it out of obscurity though.

It still doesn't look think a genuine photo (to me anyway). scratch

Regardless of all that though, if she's genuinely missing then hope she is found.

We have another one!

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4363416/British-mother-reports-attempted-abduction-girl-3.html

An attempted abduction, three year old British girl, in the presence of the girl's mother, in broad daylight, on the Costa del Sol and no other witnesses.

The man attempting the abduction is a walking stereotype - gypsy looking and in his fifties. Apparently he also has a scar on his head called "Paco" or perhaps the man is called Paco and the Mail journalist is illiterate  Rolling Eyes

Most importantly : There was no official word on whether police believe the incident was a serious abduction attempt or a misunderstanding.

I think that this will be one of our longest topics!

DDL's link transferred here from the miscellaneous case topic along with two posts from 28th February about the Katrice Lee case in which an abductor has suddenly been mentioned.

Move where see fit, Mods:

Transferred as requested.

Watch this one sprout legs and appear everywhere else with a definite link to the McCanns.

I'm having problems accessing the Mail story but, from what I can see, the mother is referred to throughout by her surname - how downright rude.

I don't believe either of them. Sorry...

Mind you, I have an abduction story of my own. My children were playing at the side of a stream in Austria, and a gypsy looking woman in a long dress took one by the hand and started walking off towards the path. Lucky I was there!

Every word of that is true, but...

What actually happened is that one of my children fell over, I was sitting with my coffee in the restaurant, overlooking the stream, between the stream and the path, and the owner of the restaurant, in national dress, brought her over to me, and offered plasters, a free piece of cake, and even a little toy. Sadly, the second story would never make the papers.


It is very easy to forget that many parts of mainland Europe still consider children a communal problem, and strangers will intervene when a child seems to be in trouble, or just looks bored/unhappy. People also do take children by the hand, when we were looking at a church the old lady doing the flowers (who looked about 120 years old) took my daughter by the hand, speaking very fast, not in English, and showed her the church. Not a single word of common language was available to either, and yet they spent a happy 10 minutes together. Not an abduction, just a lonely old lady who liked children.

These stories do nothing to make our children safer, they just encourage parents to see every person as a threat to children, which they are not. The vast majority of people are kind to children, and letting children experience the kindness of strangers gives them a more positive view of the world than this constant view that the child catcher will take them away.

The Mail article now refers to her as Ms Deacon - perhaps someone there reads this forum! There's also a mention of Colin Sutton which I don't think was there before.

Loads more reports of this but none that I can see screaming the McCanns in big headlines.
