I've been into details often enough here. Ritchie Lee, father of Katrice , was and is a friend. She went missing while I was on Pads protection patrol. It never goes away.Quite..to both.
I cannot begin to imagine how the parents feel.
I will never forget, at a classic car show in 1990 when I took my then 2 years old out for the day. He was car daft then, still is. He always stuck to us like glue outside, but this day as I was waiting in a short Q for icecream, with him creating a dent in the back of my legs as normal, he went AWOL. I turned to give an absent infant a cone.
It took an hour, with the assistance of all the show car owners & Police to find him...fast asleep in the rear of a stunning vintage leather-bound Lanchester.
I also recall throwing up with utter fear behind bushes.
To have a child go AWOL then have that child found decomposing in a foreign jungle is on another level of life-long daily living Hell. My Hell lasted an afternoon.
In regards to kids wandering off, I've taught mine two important lessons - who's allowed to touch them on their privates and why (toilet time only) and what to do if they get lost and can't find us.
In both instances, the answer is to scream and yell like a ******* banshee. In scenario one of being tampered with, the culprit should hopefully run away and in scenario two of being lost, one of us should come running.
Appears to have been it.All I hope is that this is a case of wandering off and getting into difficulty, not that of foul play by a third party.
