    I've just been watching their interview and it still seems heartbreaking to me but many people on facebook are saying they think that the parents killed her. It doesnt seem possible to me

    what do you think of the whole thing? could you have left little children lieing there asleep when you went over the road for a meal I dont think I could

    It's a tough one but if the parents did kill her would they really still keep bringing back into the public eye. No one will ever know unfortunately until they find her.
    We don't have kids yet but I can say if we did I most certainly could not have left my children on their own like that - you wouldn't leave them at home in this country and go down the road for a meal so why would you do it in a foreign country.
    It's very sad and I do hope they find her in one piece, maybe with the met police on the case there maybe a few new leads - fingers crossed!

    I think it was Dr Hilary that just visited the resort and said that it was really like you sat at the end of your garden having a bbq so not far at all. Other than that i have nothing but sympathy for this family, i cant even imagine what theyve gone through

    It must be your worst nightmare come true and even worse when the police over there just closed the case after a year with what seems like little investigation. Good for them for not letting it go

    I think if it was my child still missing then I would never ever give up. Not until my last dying breath, so so sad.

    I don't think so, but I do feel that if it were a single mother or a family living on benefits that had left their daughter in a room without supervision and she had gone missing that they would be called all the names under the sun and more than likely prosecuted for neglect/abuse

    totally agree Josh they left them alone the previous evening too as kate said she slept with the kids because her husband went home early from there dinner with friends as he was tiered so not the 1st night they left them

    Very true Josh.

    I do not think they harmed her but what they did was wrong. I do think they have been punished enough by having to live with the nightmare for the rest of their lives. Sadly people do stupid things without thinking of it.
    In 2003 I took Beth to Orlando with a friend and her disabled son. We had a long day at the park and friends son was past it and put to bed. I offered to take Beth and get some chinese as we were on ID. She said give me 5 and I will come, when I asked if she were getting her ds up she said no he will be fine. Well no he could not wander off but what if there was a fire or he had a seizure. When we left I said Chinese is just to left, she said oh let's look at shops. I am afraid it bothered me more than her.

    Completely agree with you Josh.

    I know they are asking the PM if he will open the case again, but I don't think the Police should have to look into it. Money is tight enough for the Metropolitan Police as it is and it concerns me that other people who something has just happened to might not get as much rescources because of this.

    They shouldn't have left their children on their own, they were far too young and sadly they have to live with that forever

    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
