Going back to the original one, Operation Bigfoot.

I wonder who actually decides these names? Is it reference to the namesake, e.g - a bit of a hoax.

Always intrigued who comes up with the names. A bit like who decided on calling it Operation Grange. Whose decision was that?

Anyway, sorry I'm digressing. Or rambling.

So it is looking like a false report as suspected.

Well I am really delighted that this report of a missing child seems to have been incorrect.

It is an education to see how quickly it became big news, and what an effort police and public put towards tracing this supposed "abducted" child.  As it should be of course.

Am I the only one to see an analogy here ?   All only my opinion, and if considered inappropriate please delete.

Yes, and it shows precisely that the police don't tell the public everything or even porkies during investigations.......




snipped from article quote...


On Friday, Supt Chris Edwards of Surrey Police said he was "completely satisfied" with the credibility of the witness.
But in a statement, the force said that after re-interviewing the man at length, and as a result of its inquires, "no further information has come to light to corroborate the report

I wonder what will happen to this person who cried fake abduction....

I should imagine the police knew it was a load of hocus-pocus from the beginning. But had to take the claims seriously until all possible scenarios were explored and eliminated.

A bit like another case but on a more complex scale.

If he is mentally competent and can stand trial, he is in big trouble.

I wonder. If he admits he made it up I suppose it's wasting police time or some similar charge. If he sticks to his story what could they charge him with?

Naming operations has often seemed a bit haphazard, Operation Julie was named for a female sergeant who happened to be around at the time. I believe Operation Countryman was called that because it was officers from a rural force investigating the Met .My local force tended to pick names that began with the division letter. I remember C division running a Juvenile nuisance operation called Clearasil ' to clear up troublesome spots '

He's been arrested for 'Suspicion of perverting the course of justice ' a more serious charge than Wasting Police Time. Even if he continues to stick to his story he can still be charged,and put before a court to let a jury decide
TBH a lot of people deny their offences/ stick to their stories but still get charged if the CPS decide there is sufficient evidence

Thanks, PMR. Very interesting.

A bit haphazard but with some meaning with it then....

Operation Clearasil to clear up troublesome spots is brilliant. I can imagine them all chuckling away like kids in a classroom when they came up with that.
