How can Shannon just have vanish in the land of CCTV?

Search by 250 officers and untold numbers of volunteers fails to yield a single clue


http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/how-can-shannon-just-have-vanish-in-the-land-of-cctv-786540.html

It sounds as though Police are looking at the family very closely Shocked

I hope and pray that she is found safe and well

Didn't know that dogs would be able to pick something like that up after this amount of time. Could it be more recent?

I think I have posted a lot of information on cadaver dogs in the Madeleine Clues section. If I haven't covered the 'years' issue, just yell and I will have a look through my PC.

I'll move this discussion from Shannon's thread later tonight and put it somewhere more appropriate.

Okay?

It's now saying in the news, that Shannon's mother's ex boyfriend moved house just a few days ago???
Could he have taken her with him?

I hope that he has and that she is ok, her poor mum must be out of her mind.

HEIDISTAR

I'm a little confused. I read about her boyfriend a couple of days ago, because it said he is 22 and was tickling Shannon the Monday night before she disappeared. I had a strange feeling about it.

Is this the same boyfriend does anyone know or does it relate to a different, former boyfriend?

I'm with you Heidi, i was confused too.

This must be another bloke the mother went out with as surely the otherone would still be with her and he is classed as 'stepdad' to Shannon i believe, where this man is called the ex boyfriend. Very suspect that he has moved out a few days ago.. I hope by now they have tracked him down to eliminate him!

I still feel Shannon has run away and maybe got stuck somewhere and is unaware of the search as maybe not seen a tv/media.

I'm praying soo bad this is the case!!

HEIDISTAR

Well that's why I'm confused Claire! If he only moved out a few days ago, he must be the stepdad? Because she couldn't have got a new stepdad since going missing surely...

Thanks Merly, I'll have another read too.

Edited to add - actually, I've just noticed that Sinbad says he 'moved house', not 'moved out', this could be where my confusion has come from!

Query about Tickling Fights:

This is London

Last updated at 22:37pm on 24.02.08

Hunt for missing Shannon: Police seal off mother's ex-boyfriend's flat

Shannon's mother Karen, 32, said Shannon had not expressed a wish to go and live with her father and had a close relationship with her stepfather, 22-year-old Craig Meehan, whom she had lived with for four years.

Police have released CCTV footage of Shannon Matthews, who disappeared after leaving school in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, on Tuesday afternoon

"She is really clingy with him. She's a daddy's girl, more than a mummy's girl," Mrs Matthews said.

"On Monday night, they were having tickling fights. She views him as a dad."

http://tinyurl.com/yoxwdy

VIDEO FOOTAGE INCLUDED

*************************************************************

SHANNON AND MUM LIVE IN DEWSBURY

Dad is Leon Rose (lives in Huddersfield)

Live-in boyfriend is 22-year-old Craig Meehan (that would be Dewsbury also)

Ex-boyfriend (lives in Dewsbury)

Police looking for the missing schoolgirl Shannon Matthews are believed to be searching the home of one of her mother's ex-boyfriends.

BBC News - 24th February

A flat in the Dewsbury area is among the properties and locations being searched by officers.

(...)

More than 200 homes within half a mile of the youngster's Moorside Road home in Dewsbury have been searched.


http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/bradford/7261208.stm

Detectives are now focusing on a flat half-a-mile from Shannon's home in Moor side Road. It was recently lived in by a former boyfriend of the girl's mother Karen.

http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30100-1306627,00.html?f=rss

*******************************************************

WOULD A LIVE-IN BOYFRIEND OF 4 YEARS (NOW AGED 22 YEARS) STILL HAVE A FLAT? I DON'T THINK SO. I THINK THE LIVE-IN BOYFRIEND AND THE EX-BOYFRIEND ARE TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE .......BUT I AM HAPPY TO BE CORRECTED.

I can't find the reference to a boyfriend moving out 4 days ago. I will try again in a minute. I might be missing something!

*******************************************************

There IS CCTV footage - I think someone had asked how this child had disappeared off the face of the earth without her being recorded on CCTV.

Thanks for that Merly, I had just been reading it all again too!

It does sound like an ex-boyfriend, rather than the current boyfriend of 4 years, I agree.

I can't see it saying anywhere that he moved out a few or four days ago, but I can see that it says they have been searching the flat for the past 5 days, which to me is rather worrying...

Poor Shannon 😢

Yeah I thought 2 dfferent men aswell. And they are refering to an ex boyfriend and not the man the mother is living with now.

Oh God just pray Shannon is safe and he has moved out seperately and its non related as she went missing begining of the week! I wonder if they have traced him? I think there is a lot the public isn't being told about this.

It feels a bit frightening to me. I don't know how else to express it!

I'll do my prayers again tonight......that's all I feel I can do. If I was closer, I would be with them in Dewsbury - with the dog!

They don't seem to be focussed on outside areas anymore - but the dog has done two searches with me since we set up this forum. He is accepted as a well-trained 'pet' with special abilities. (He's not police-trained so he can't do areas of special focus. But he is a good collie dog with a nose for scent which even surprises me!)

I need to do something for Rosanna Moore and Sarah Smout tomorrow - so I can't go to Dewsbury as well. Oh goodness, decisions!

Hi, Merly, I also find it weird that they arent searching the whole of Dewsbury outside areas etc., they only seem to be focussing on the road and a few roads round it don't they?

Claire

As far as I can understand from newspaper articles, the police have:

- searched the local lake twice

- covered all routes between the school and home

- coordinated up to 250 volunteers at a time covering outreachign areas

- searched 200 premises in the locality

Whilst they have been focused on the ex-boyfriend's flat (for 4 days now) that did not preclude them from doing a second search on the local lake.

Again, we have to trust the professional police judgement on this matter. However, if they call for volunteers to walk the moors - please rest assured that both I and the dog will be there. (It is about 90 minutes drive for me - so we can do it!)

That's nice of you Merly, oh yes I'm with you all the way, there is nothing to critizise the police for, they have and are doing a fantastic job!
Maybe the ex-boyfriend phoned Shannon on her mobile and arranged to meet her the next day and maybe said he would take her to her dad's and she would trust him to go to wouldn't she. 😢

Oh God, this is looking nasty isn't it. It is a terrible and negative thing to say but whenever I hear of an abduction I just think the worst. In reality how many children are found safe and well. Obviously I hope and pray this is the case for Madeleine, Shannon and anyone else missing but things don't look good IMO.
