Does it not speak volumes that the poster children who are wheeled out in appeals/promotions by Missing people are the same ones over and over. Isay this not to diminish these children but to highlight how rare these event are. But to keep some very hefty wage bills going you have to keep the money coming.

Haha - good find, Chirps.

So anyway, all this hoo-ha about 'International Missing Children' day and I still can't find a list of the actual children (not adults) that are missing.

Do they not want them found or something. scratch

And Katrice Lee who went missing in 1981.

As I have said before, the case of Katrice Lee intrigues me. There was as far as I recall absolutely no media coverage in the U K. Ben Needham's disappearance was by comparison adequately reported. 

As the mother of a then 3 year old who was in the habit of wandering away in supermarkets, I would have shivered if I'd heard about the case at the time.

Don't know much about the Katrice Lee case. Just had a quick read on wiki about it. Tragic.

2 more missing children advertised....

Another 16 year old youth who went missing 2 weeks ago now.

And Andrew Gosden who was 14 at the time and disappeared under very strange circumstances.

Absolutely no mention of Madeleine McCann as yet.

Katrice Lee's family were badly let down imo. The German police and the British military couldn't agree on who should lead the investigation. That cost them valuable time. There were no border controls or roadblocks put into place immediately. NAAFI staff weren't interviewed until 6 weeks later.

A new RMP investigation called Operation Bute has been opened, but this case is hardly publicised.

Jo youle (missing people)on Sky news. Very brief mention of Ben then flew past Maddy with a mention of name only then zilch. This is a four minute interview and no mention of the McCann and heavy emphasis on the need to help all children not just high profile. Jo youle does look like a professional cheese baller. I think they are lifting the profile above team McCann.....the start of a separation. I'm sure they must have felt some negative vibes.

Sky 16.38 pm ish 25/05/16

International translations...

Hello Bampots -

Please may I know what is a 'cheese baller'?

Something akin to a 'grin and bear it' character?

That's interesting, Bampots, that the Mc's have appeared to have been given a swerve.

When last looked an hour ago or whenever it was, there was no mention of Madeleine at all. Tweets going off every min but all day, zilch about Madeleine.

There was a tweet from a police force (can't remember which one) that was backing 'missing child' day and it had a picture of a police dog (Eddie/Keela lookalike), Missing people said what a lovely photo or something similar. I thought, I bet ambassador Kate did'nt think so.

Is she even still an ambassador I wonder...

Sorry Bampots, didn't see this.   I'm just curious, could you precis what Jo Youle was speaking of?   Was this interview (4 mins  Rolling Eyes)  introduced as a specific topic?   Was it just a possible advertising donation spot?   I really would like to know WHY this was aired, any observations?  TIA

ETA - Just seen Andrew's post and I didn't know it was "Missing Child Day" which answers my questions.

It was a term I and my friends used over thirty years ago and I still indulge in! Don't know if anyone else uses it maybe others will say. While at college I worked in a restaurant and my boss would go round his customers with a cheesy grin having cheesy conversations and we would call it "cheese balling" if he was in a particularly sychophantic mood we would say he was "cream cheesing" purile fun but I love the term!

You have indeed answered your question bluebell

Another look in and Madeleine was indeed mentioned. About an hour ago.

Just awaiting news on Tony now.

No appeal and can't see #socks trending on twitter as yet.

Will keep a look out.

.... all fizzled out very quickly, and swept up even quicker.

Not entirely sure what the big promotion was all about..

Mix up some historic cases with a few 16 year old youths who are staying at there mates by the looks.

Either or... it's about getting more money in the coffers.

People connected on decent salaries remember.

I don't know for sure about the video but the partnership between Royal Mail and Missing People was first mentioned nearly two years ago.

I should imagine that the video was done around then as well.

I keep forgetting to ask my postman about it. Having said that I've not seen him for ages now (although still get my post). Might have to report him missing if I don't clap eyes on him soon.

The Missing People organization cannot fail to be aware of the lack of public support for Kate and Gerry McCann. Nor can they fail to be aware of how dodgy the McCann version of events is.

While I have much more sympathy with the Needhams - I think it was a tragic accident - nevertheless I suspect it is widely know that Ben cannot and will not be found.
