I just feel so so very sad.

YANBU to hope it

AgentZigzag Mon 08-Oct-12 23:10:37

Whatever the police know, it seems to be saying it's not going to happen.

Tragic all round.

She was only tiny.

MoelFammau Mon 08-Oct-12 23:11:21

She looks just like my DD. It makes me cry.

Strange question really, I'm sure everyone hopes the same.

It's doubtful but it's not a million percent impossible.

I'm sure everyone's clinging on to that hope, no matter how unlikely it is.

This has really effected me, was properly crying over it earlier on the news.

I don't understand how they know it's now murder a case and she's gone, when she hasn't been found. I'm hoping she's been stashed somewhere and will be found.

Did anyone see all the lanterns and balloons released between 7 and 7.30 in her village?
So moving.

The whole thing is just utterly shit. Very upsetting. That poor family and that poor wee girl.

Do you know what worries me?

That Mark Bridger didn't abduct her and the real culprit still has her and no-one is looking for them.

I do too, i am the eternal optimist x (unmumsnet kiss)

MoelFammau Mon 08-Oct-12 23:18:23

I know it's a strange question.... Just feel... well, I'm not sure why this case has affected me more than other tragic cases but it really has. I think it's because she's the spit of my DD.... Just keep clicking on online news sites in the hope of getting some good news....

If she has been killed by Mark Bridger, I don't understand why he doesn't at least explain where she is. It won't make things worse for him, surely? I can't imagine what April's parents are going through. So desperately sad.

Yanbu

I can't help hoping it's all some mad mistake and she'll turn up perfect.

The fact that the accused man cried in the dock made me wonder if maybe there isn't some mistake. I know I'm probably just wishing but I can't seem to stop.

Bupcakes thats what I was thinking sad

MrsjREwing Mon 08-Oct-12 23:19:20

Bupcakes, I thought the same thing.

tiggytape Mon 08-Oct-12 23:19:59

YANBU - hoping for a miracle to end her family's pain is not unreasonable at all. It is just so, so awful that I think a lot of people hope the same. Whatever the police know, we haven't been told so don't perhaps have their certainty and therefore it is understandable to want to cling to some hope.

Please, please remember what the Police said the other day: don't speculate in the public domain if it might prejudice the judicial process.

There is most likely lots of info we are not privy to.

An OP on another thread suggested not much is being given out to the public to allow for a fair trial.

So v v sad

No, I don't wish that as for her to be alive and with someone who is doing her harm is a much worse thought after a week.

Instead, I hope she died quickly and in no pain, with no knowledge of what was happening to her.

I really pray that happened.

Hi all
We would ask you not to speculate on things
Thanks

MoelFammau Mon 08-Oct-12 23:54:27

So sorry. Wasn't wanting to speculate at all. Wasn't the point. Just needed somewhere to say how deeply sad I feel about the poor girl. Sorry.
