[Kate] said: “It was recently revealed that in the UK a child goes missing every three minutes. That is frankly terrifying.”

This so called 'fact' that a child goes missing every three minutes in the UK needs to be examined more closely. For a start, the statistic she's quoting is worded as follows:

In the UK, a child is reported missing every 3 minutes
http://www.missingkids.co.uk/

There's a big difference between a child being reported missing and a child going missing and what she doesn't mention is that many of them are snatched by estranged parents who have lost custody battles.
http://www.dadzclub.com/articles/features/missing-children.ashx

The studies on this issue seem to be sketchy, but the National Policing Improvement Agency Missing Persons Bureau has produced this for 2009/10
http://www.npia.police.uk/en/docs/Missing_Persons_Data_and_Analysis_2009-10.pdf

The vast majority of those people who go missing return or are found quickly, data within this report indicates that between 55 to 80 per cent of missing people return within 24 hours. Only around one per cent will remain outstanding after one year, approximately 2,000 people.

In total children and young people aged under 18 years made up 64 per cent of the missing reports. The data suggest that people in the 15-17 year old age group went missing most frequently, with this group making up 34 per cent of the missing reports (see figure 2 overleaf and the table in Appendix E). These figures could include multiple incidents relating to the same young person if they have gone missing repeatedly.

That's what angers me wintabells, statistics are manipulated to suit whoevers agenda. It is a fact the vast majority of missing children are thankfully found.

Having Kate #mccann as an ambassador for missing people, is like having Hannibal Lecter as an ambassador for fine food!”

http://www.safetycops.com/missing_children.htm

Reading the definitions of 'missing' in the above, invites one to wonder how it is that Madeleine McCann can be defined as 'missing'? Is there evidence that her parents don't know her whereabouts? that she was abducted by someone? that she ran away from home? that she got lost? or told to leave? or not allowed to return home?

The only category she seems to fit into is 'throwaway' in that, according to her parents, she and her siblings, were abandoned.

Love it.

I can see alot of new people who don't post on the McCann hashtag are aghast at this appointment.

The pros haven't woken up yet, or they are preparing for what will be an extremely busy day defending their heroes... l haven't seen one supportive post yet so the public aren't fooled.

@missingpeople May I also suggest John Terry as your new head of race relations.

@missingpeople : why not ask Josef Fritzl to be an Ambassador too?

@missingpeople. Is Kate McCann running out of money?

I haven't seen one positive Tweet from anyone thinking its a good move yet.

is sending a terrible message to teenage/young mums they will think they can do a kate mcann and leave their babies alone and nothing will happen to them!!!

Most parents, whether young or not, have a natural drive to protect their children and provide the best they possibly can for them. It is unfair to demonise mothers on the basis of their age and to suggest that they're feckless and irresponsible and just looking for an excuse to neglect their offspring and get away with it. Research has shown that many young/teenage mothers were already greatly disadvantaged before they became parents and that their choice to have a child in fact elevated their self-esteem and desire to improve not only the quality of their own lives and education, but the quality of their children's. Many young women mature during their pregnancy into highly commited and dedicated mothers, where the loving bond with their child provides a sense of their own agency, the impetus to change old habits and a determination, despite the enormous economic and social challenges, to provide stability, security and happiness for their children.

Only a handful of people have clicked 'Like,' for the news and all comments that are still there are negative.

Seems they keep removing the comments and they simply reappear. I haven't seen any positive comments anywhere which is surprising. The pros will soon wake up I guess.

Why are you deleting comments, can we not express as a nation how we feel? Didn't delete us when we were giving donations.

You have to question the wisdom of the charity since this is supposed to be a major new initiative funded by free advertising. If the message gets lost in the controversy it is wasted.

A reminder for the ' missing-people charity ' ~ Neglect under UK law means ;

Failure to protect from physical and emotional harm or danger.

Failure to ensure adequate supervision including the use of adequate care-takers.

Also the intent of the parent is totally irrelevant - It does not matter for the child’s well being what the intent was. There are parents who have intent to neglect, and others who have no premeditated intent. However, the outcome is still failure in their parental duty to protect the child resulting in harm.

The McCanns seem to be driven now by News International.

Be interested to see whether there was a large donation made to Missing Persons Charity by News International in return for this favour????

Strangely enough, they've not mentioned on their official fb page about Kate's latest achievement...their latest post is thanking a taxi driver for displaying a sticker in his cab...nothing about Kate becoming an ambassador for the Missing People charity...weird, they're normally straight off the mark with self promotion!

Post  Angelique on Tue 10 Jul - 13:17

As everyone else has commented I am appalled at this appointment of Kate as Ambassador of Missing Children. I certainly won't be donating.

I can't understand why they would appoint Kate other than the 'cash draw' angle. So who would benefit most from the cash? The Charity obviously and any people they employ to advertise missing children with these 'huge digital billboards'. They would also receive grants from the Government, paid for by us via taxes.

So it's really a money making outfit now plus Kate gets higher up the ladder and it becomes a type of insurance policy.

Did we expect anything else!
