if those phrases are coming up, sounds like someone has deleted the browsing history, but maybe not the cache/cookies. if you need to delve further, the cookies list may give some more details of any web pages viewed.
Are you sure it's in the history and not the Google suggestions that come up when you type something in? (A bit of a long shot, and of course that would be incredibly alarming in itself. Google shouldn't be suggesting child porn).
Have you checked your browser history to see what things he's actually looked at? Obviously don't click on anything, but just to see a list of URLs and stuff.
If he has clicked on anything, he has committed a crime and you have a duty to report him.
I would be very very concerned if I found a google search history with that in it. I would be horrified and tbh, be suspecting the worse. I dont think you can accidently google sick stuff like that.
Before you confront him, ask yourself what you think anyone would say if questioned about this on their puter?
I doubt he will admit to it being one of his fave searches (even if it is) and so I really dont know if I would bother to confront and perhaps consider passing the computer over to the police or some experts to look at.
You also have to seriously consider any children he is in contact with. I know its not nice to think the worse but you cannot ignore what you have found.
I sincerely hope its all innocent but am well puzzled as to how on earth it could be TBH.
Sorry I cannot be more postive for you. It must be bloody awful to find something like this. Hope you're ok.
I can't believe people are assessing whether or not this man is likely to be a 'paedophile' based on such little info as search terminology! As for the terminology used by 'seasoned peadophiles'...they all have to start somewhere!
Not even the most highly qualified professional would be able to deliver that that kind of opinion based on absolutely no information on the man involved. More to the point, I'd hope a professional wouldn't attempt a pop' 'diagnosis' based on such.
namechanged, no-one here is in a position to offer up 'remote' diagnoses, it's impossible and I know this wasn't what you were asking for anyway.
Yes, it would seem that he's performed the searches you mentioned. If he has gone no further, a stern warning will probably be all that comes of it and this may well do him and vulnerables a favour. If he has gone further, he needs pulling up.
...from the perspective of someone who has found (slightly different scenario) and has reported.
I can't believe google would let this happen. This is quite worrying for people who work with children. I am assuming this could not happen on my school laptop, as if this appeared on my history I would be sacked with no questions asked,
