Maybe I'm just cynical but I have said before that the Mccanns had now set a precedent and there are many many unscrupulous people out there who will be quite willing to hide a child, even kill a child if they think they can gain large monetary profits from doing so.

Some children are very very good at keeping secrets, either through fear or in the hope of gaining something they really want. Tell a child to keep a secret and he/her can then go to Disneyland, etc etc, that child will keep the secret.

The only thing that has surprised me with the Shannon case is the number of people involved, I'm sorry to say nothing else has given me any surprise at all.

HI All, haven't been here in a long time. Just reading an article on this case. Apparently the police have asked for a tape from channel 4 of an episode of "shameless" where a child was hidden, and an abduction was faked to scam a ransom. Broadcast the month before Shannon disappeared.

Just reading Clarence's quote after she was found saying it shows children can go missing "for whatever reason", delighted, new hope, etc etc.

unfortunately for them Shannon is old enough to talk.......she was obviously not happy at home to start with. IMO

How many more will try the scam? This is what the Mccanns have many more kids will be used to try and make millions???? Every time a child goes missing now people are going to have suspicions.

Lets hope the Pj do their job this week and show people just what happens when they get caught.

Fingers and everything else crossed for some results shortly

The matthews rabble and the evil mccann deviants should be made an severe example of so no one else tries this c*** again.
