    Canada - Barbara Wood, 6 mos, London, Ont, 8 May 1942

    Six month old Barbara Wood was taken from her carriage on May 8 or 9, 1942 in London Ontario. Her mother had left her in front of a store and when she came out the baby was gone.
    I have spent countless hours trying to find out what happened to this baby. No connection to me just curiosity.

    Here's another newspaper article indicating the mother was sent an unsigned letter requesting the grandmothers relatives names be published in the paper.

    When babies this young go missing, I can only hope that someone wanting to raise a child takes them, and not some pervert wanting to kill...

    The odds are very good that little Barbara grew up somewhere under a different name, with no clue that she came from someplace else. As difficult as it must've been for her parents, at least this thought might be a small comfort. IMO it's better to have your missing child have a life somewhere away from you, but still living, as opposed to being molested or murdered...

    I have spent so many hours searching for a follow up to what happened in this case. I have about 10 newspaper articles but they all stop a few weeks after.
    The 70th anniversary of her abduction is coming up in May. I wonder if a newspaper would do a follow up story as to if she was ever found.
