    Heart warming story

    Post by Mcqueen on Tue 5 Jan 2016 - 18:55

    Sunday afternoon layed out chilling when all of a sudden shouting outside Jumped up and a woman was charging about shouting Jessie Jessie,
    A small child was missing, the father was running up and down shouting into the shops, , it seemed to go on for ages but it lasted maybe 20 minutes,
    Police arrived and left   WTF i thought, get on the beach either end and walk it   Nah they were worse than useless,
    I was boiling mad, meanwhile the woman was just screaming her voice had gone, the the dad was beefing and helpless, Janet just stood holding her mouth, tears flowing, i wasnt far behind, Harrowing to say the least, Then a big roar and people clapping and whooping, she was found safe further down the beach, Janet burst into tears, i just held her and the relief was just major, never come across anything like that before.
    Turned out Jessie was from a traveler family, She was dressed in lime green with a big lime green flower in her hair, how she got lost i dont know,
    But i thought afterwards how great it was everybody joined in looking and cheered when they found her, bet she got belted later on

    What a fright! You can just imagine the woman's terror if you thought you'd lost a child in a strange place. Yeah, I reckon she would have got a slap if it wasn't so public. By the time they got home they maybe all calmed down a bit!

    Think I may have posted this before...

    Was down the Cornwall/Devon area on holiday, kids were about one and three years old, we're having a day at a very busy beach, can't remember exactly where, can only remember access to the beach was only  from one end as cliffs prevented any other access,  when  it's coming to the end of the day, lots of people heading in one direction, we decide to to call it a day as well, beach is still reasonably crowded, we start to pack up getting dressed etc, next thing we realise our daughters dissapeared, what I have not mentioned, on the nation news a week or so  before we left Scotland was a big headline about a kid, think it was a boy, being abducted from a beach in the area we were heading to, to this day I don't know what ever became of the kid, being on holiday we lost touch with the news, would have been about thirty years ago, but back to the story, so daughters nowhere to be seen, first thing that comes to mind is the news story, we're calling out her name much like how McQueen describes, someone seeing our distress says to me get up to the lifeguard point they've got a tannoy system, so I do, next thing they're calling out her name and description, me and a couple of lifeguards head back to our spot on the beach, I see a woman with my daughter in hand heading towards my distressed wife, she'd heard the tannoy call and recognised my daughter playing in a rock pool which I'd been playing with her earlier in,,, rock pool was only ten yards or so from us,,, we had only taken our eyes of her for a second, that all it takes, but I'll admit we just went in to a massive panic, hearing what we had on the news your mind just goes in to overdrive, probally as those peoples did based on the Madeline McCann case...
    At least a good outcome, any historians throw any light on to that kid some thirty years back in England...

    The police response to that little girl missing was shambolic, If she had been abducted she could have been in Santa Cruz on a yacht heading anywhere,

    What brought our nightmare to a speedy end was the beach tannoy system, getting a description of her out to the hundreds of people  on the beach worked...
    As previously said she was found only ten yards or so from us, the woman who returned her to us was probably in earshot of us calling out her name but did not respond to that, but when she heard the message "Lost child, three year old girl, blond hair, red swimsuit" coming over the tannoy she like everyone else hearing the message looked around her and sure enough playing in a rock pool on her own in front of her was a girl meeting the description...

    As for her parents, your brain just goes in to overdrive, in my case I can still recall the scenario, she's been abducted was the first one due to the recent news story, she's in the sea drowning, she's got caught up in the crowd leaving the beach,,, not she's close by just playing, that one don't come in to your mind...

    Those parents will remember the event the rest of their life's, I still do, I can remember the exact second I realised she wasn't there, my wife was strapping my son in to the buggy, I was getting dressed, then I realised she wasn't in my vision,,, it only took a second,,, she, oh these two are boring, oh that was fun in that rock pool earlier today, I'll go there...

    Simple innit...

    Adam I recall my daughter disappearing at a market.I was screaming her name,asking people have you seen a little girl etc. Eventually I can see her in the distance, The little madam would not turn round. Someone stopped her and I caught up with her. It happened so quickly. This was 30 odd years ago. My daughters would hide from me in shops,I hated going into town with them. They are so protective with their own kids now though.

    My grandson was like that, always running away any chance he could get,  feckin little nuisance, couldn't take him anywhere, I'd have had the shit knocked out of him but his parents just chased around after him like eejits,,,  remember taking him to one of them kiddies play places, full on ball pits, climbing frames, etc, something all kids love, he even tried to escape from there...
    I say to my daughter set it up with two or three of your mates that he don't know, take him out  for a burger or to the park, have your mates around and let him run away with them discretely following him and you dissapear,,, scare the shit out of the little pest when he realises mummy ain't chasing him and he's lost,,, but she wouldn't do it...
