Mon Oct 15, 2007 3:06 pm posted by merlynsam Post subject: RUI PEDRO TEIXEIRA MENDONCA 11 - Lousada (Portugal) - 04/03/98

Rui Pedro Mendonça vanished while walking home from school in the northern Portuguese town Lousada. A month later, hopes were raised when he was sighted with a middle-aged man in Disneyland in Paris.



Then three years later, his mother’s worst fears were realised. Horrific images of Rui Pedro being sexually abused were reportedly uncovered during an international police operation that cracked a global paedophile network. (Wonderland) The Portuguese boy’s mother, Filomena Teixera, flew to Switzerland to view the pictures and was apparently able to identify her son. But he has never been found. The trail has gone cold and investigators fear that he may have been murdered to cover up the abuse. Ms Teixera said she has had psychiatric treatment for 8 hours a day for the past four years, since her father died. She still refuses to believe that her son, who would now be 20 years old, could have died.

“When I stop believing he is alive, I lose all my strength,” she said. “My brain doesn’t allow me to think the he is dead.”

Rui Pedro Teixeira Mendonca

Missing since March 4, 1998 from Lousada, Portugal

Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

* Date Of Birth: January 28, 1987
* Age at Time of Disappearance: 11 years old
* Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 150 cm - 59"; 45 kg - 99 lbs.
* Distinguishing Characteristics: White male. Brown hair; brown eyes. Protruding ears.
* Dentals: His upper incisors are slightly elongated.

Circumstances of Disappearance

On 4th March 1998, Rui Pedro took his bicycle and, around 2 o'clock p.m he went to his mother's office, to ask her for permission to go on a drive with a 22 year-old male. His mother refused and told him to ride his bicycle behind her office.

In the afternoon, around 5 p.m, Rui Pedro's teacher phoned the parents because Rui was late, which was unusual.

Immediately his parents started to look for him. During their search, they found out that a neighbour had found his bicycle around 3 p.m. It was hidden in the wood where Rui Pedro was seen riding his bicycle.

Rui Pedro has yet to be found, despite an intensive search and international appeal.

His mother believes her son was abducted by a paedophile ring. A few months after his disappearance, police showed her a photograph from a global paedophile website. The picture was not clear but it showed a boy who looked like Rui Pedro. His mother believes it was Rui.

10 years today.

It is exactly 10 years since Pedro has disappeared. He would have 21 years today. This date revives pain from the parents who have never spared their efforts to find the smallest. The Judicial Police re-opens, a cyclical case, and engaged in various duties complement each time the hypothesis of a small trace is revealed. The mother of Rui Pedro remained traumatized and continues to resort to psychological help. She tried throughout these ten years, that his son did not fall into oblivion. With the demise of Madeleine McCann many sites and associations, including ours, we set out on the "one" of their site, the disappearance of Rui Pedro giving courage to the family. The case, Rui Pedro, is also under secrecy justice until April as requested by the lawyer of the family, Ricardo Sa Fernandes, who at the end of last summer had disclosed that there was a new track which was explored. It was not until the end of that period before they learn more.

Missing: Rui Pedro Teixeira Mendonça



Google Translation:

Letter from a mother to a missing son:

When I think of you, a mixture of pain and joy invade my being, around me suddenly sad and happy and there is a tightness in my chest that I cannot understand. Thinking of you! I always think of you! You're the simplest things and those things more complicated, you make me dream of other times and experiences ... I wanted to tell you so much with a look of certainty would be sufficient and a hug and a thousand kisses . .. will it be? Have you changed? Have you grown much? What do you think? What hurts you? What can I do for you? I have your things here, your articles, your clothes, your perfume, your last picture stares at me every day ... but suddenly "knowledge" and I see you are "really" not here and I suffer, sometimes crying, at other times I just stop to look away! I do not want to believe this fact! I see you hugging me, encompassing me in your body in a huge hug, feel me and I am so happy to be here, because we are complete and there is nothing happier than that! You mean the whole world to me.

So always, your mother Filomena Teixeira

__________________________________________________________________________

Original Portuguese:

Carta de uma mãe ao filho desaparecido:

Quando penso em ti, um misto de dor e alegria invadem o meu ser, torno-me de repente melancólica e feliz e há um aperto no meu peito que não sei decifrar. Pensar em ti!? Penso sempre! É! Tu estás nas coisas mais simples e também nas coisas mais complicadas, fazes-me sonhar com outras eras e sofrer no presente... Queria dizer-te tanta coisa de certeza com um olhar seria o bastante e um abraço e mil beijos e... como estarás? Que transformações sofreste? Cresceste muito? Que pensas? Que te dói? Que posso fazer por ti? Aqui tenho as tuas coisas, os teus objectos, as tuas roupas, os teus perfumes, a tua imagem passada aparece-me a cada instante... mas de repente "acordo" e vejo que "realmente" não estás aqui, e sofro, às vezes choro, noutras alturas fico simplesmente parada com o olhar ausente! Não quero acreditar nesta realidade!!! Quero ver-te pegar em mim ao colo, enrolar-me com o teu corpo num enorme abraço, sentir-me baixinha e com o coração a derreter de felicidade por estar aqui, apenas porque nos completas e não há nada mais feliz que isso! Para ti, toda a saudade do mundo

Até sempre, Tua Mãe Filomena Teixeira

Diário de Notícias

26.01.2009

by Joana de Belém

Rui Pedro's process to be archived soon

Missing. Rui Pedro, who went missing from Lousada on the 4th of March 1998, is 22 years old on Wednesday. Diário de Notícias (DN) knows that within the PJ there is the belief that the youngster is dead, a theory that is seen as more likely than that of abduction for a paedophile network. Lawyer Ricardo Sá Fernandes says that there is no evidence of death. The case will be archived if new elements don't appear during the ongoing diligences, which will be the last ones

Boy's death is the strongest possibility, but there is a lack of evidence

The last diligences concerning the investigation into the disappearance of Rui Pedro in Lousada 11 years ago in March - the age that he was at that date - are being carried out, actions which are likely to prompt the closing of the process within months. DN knows that the Polícia Judiciária (PJ) investigators are convinced that the youngster is dead, despite a lack of evidence or certainty about how everything happened. DN was able to establish with sources that are close to the process that the strongest hypothesis, at the moment, is death (pushing the theory of abduction for paedophile networks into the background), and it is admitted that the investigation will soon be concluded and the case closed. Nevertheless, new elements are still being searched for, in a final attempt before the process is archived.

The process, which was avoked by the Central Department for Penal Investigation and Action, is still under investigation and there is a rogatory letter abroad that has not obtained an answer yet, but the expectation is for the case to be closed within the next few months. Contacted by DN, the PJ doesn't confirm the homicide version: "We could only state that if there was a cadaver, one of the possibilities is that he is not alive anymore, but there are other [possibilities]", a police source said.

Filomena Teixeira and Manuel Mendonça, the parents of Rui Pedro - who will be 22 next Wednesday - don't believe the theory of death on the date of the disappearance, but they are convinced that the PJ "is doing something". Ricardo Sá Fernandes, the family's lawyer, confirmed to DN that there are currently diligences being carried out by the PJ in Oporto. "The process is not closed, diligences are being finalised which may bring new data. It's a last attempt to find out what happened", he said, not adding further detail about the ongoing initiatives.

"The investigation is ongoing and we still hope for results", the lawyer said. When questioned about the investigation lines and the hypothesis that death is the strongest one, he is peremptory: "That cannot be said. There is no element that points towards his death. There is no evidence whatsoever. But it's a possibility that we have to admit because Rui Pedro has disappeared. It cannot be denied that, since the beginning, it's a possibility. But we cannot rely on possibilities, we need evidence." The lawyer says that the process will be closed over the coming months and recognises that it "may remain awaiting better evidence", which means that it is archived until new elements appear, which justify its reopening. Until today, and since 1999, the sole arguido in the process is Afonso Dias, the adult with whom Rui Pedro asked his mother to go on a ride with on the day that he disappeared (4th of March 1998), which she refused because he was so much older. Filomena continues to believe that the individual, then aged 22, didn't tell everything that he knows.

Afonso was named a suspect, but he has always claimed his innocence. In late 2007 he reiterated that version and guaranteed that he was never summoned to depose within the process that has been ongoing for eleven years. At that date, Afonso was already a long course lorry driver, married and the father of a son.

Keep hope alive 12 years later

A GOOGLE TRANSLATION

where the butcher has been working for many years in Lousada Manuel Mendonca has showcase at the photograph of his son Rui Pedro , who disappeared 12 years.

And there are pictures of eight children, also missing. " Missing but not forgotten " remember the warning, with several phone numbers. The hope of a reunion is still alive.

Manuel Mendonca and Filomena Teixeira believe that the son , who disappeared aged 11, is alive. And to believe that the boy, made in the past 23 years on 28 January , will one day return home .

Rui Pedro disappeared on March 4, 1998 . He left home with the bike after lunch , and went for a ride in some land near home and never returned . Came the clues and misleading news .

The mother is increasingly fragile and seems unable to overcome such pain . The father insists on taking life quietly , pretending to deceive the nerves of steel that are needed to maintain hope. For now, there is no news on the whereabouts of Rui Pedro.
