Oh no how awful. It's one of those fears as a parent I try to be rational about because it is so rare, but it does happen sometimes. Poor child.

very very sad. Read an article this morning that said she was out playing at 7.30pm. Surely not without an adult? It would have been pitch black surely?

There are a couple of threads in chat about this

I think that this is a heartbreaking story. I am praying that, that little girl is found and is kept safe until then. Don't judget the parents, they must feel so bad just now.

1. 7pm is not late
2. She was not alone, was with friends
3. It is a tiny, friendly village
4. Would you rather her be inside, rather than getting fresh air and playing

Your post is really offensive, masquerading as compassion.

And for the record, what you are doing is called victim- blaming. Do you also think that women who wear high heels and skirts with splits "deserve" to be raped?

Parents who give their children appropriate freedom to live their lives really should be taught a lesson.

The individual in the white van you offer no opinion on?

I don't think anyone on this thread was meaning to be offensive, I really do hope not.
Like Cazboldy, I had also picked up on the 7pm/7.30pm part. With respect, I do feel that is late (for a 5 year old) and it is dark then. Of course we don't know all the facts and cannot/should not judge but I know that my 5 year old would not be out at that time of night, with or without friends (whose ages we don't know)
Of course, the parents know this now and all we can do is pray that she is found safe

cazboldy Tue 02-Oct-12 12:36:38


absolutely agree smile

pumpkinsweetie Tue 02-Oct-12 12:38:18

The real point here is that a 5 yo girl has gone missing.
We can all speculate but we don't know the full facts & lets not forget this was a tiny villiage not a town.
Whatever the wrongs or the rights a child is missing out there somewhere and her parents will be suffering enough without the finger pointing!

OhSoSimple Tue 02-Oct-12 13:08:08

fobwatch your post was very rude. It was only a matter of time before someone raised the fact that a 5 year old was out without close parental supervision at a time when most children of that age should be in bed with a story.
This is a "talk" forum and I am sure EVERYBODY wants a happy ending to this story, but questions are always asked in cases like

PoshPaula Tue 02-Oct-12 13:16:27

I agree with fobwatch.

Please don't talk about these parents 'learning a lesson'.

An abduction can happen in an instant.

I pray for the child's safe return and my thoughts are with her and her family.

OhSoSimple Tue 02-Oct-12 13:21:26

To be fair I think cazbody was saying that she hopes this all it turns out to be (a lesson learnt) as opposed to a different outcome. There was no malice in what was said, no one has said anything callous some mumsnetters just like to jump on things to stir it up.

she was playing a few yards from her front door.
