    Police hold fears for missing Machans Beach teen, 13

    The desperate search for a missing 13-year-old schoolboy continues, after a sweep through dense bushland yesterday failed to find any clues to his whereabouts.

    [snip]

    "He has been upset with things at home and left, but none of his friends have heard from him since," Sgt Gooiker said.

    [snip]

    Insp Dave Ellis, who is leading the search, said Declan left his school uniform and school bag at home in his room.

    It is not believed he took any other items with him.

    "We haven't heard anything at all," Insp Ellis said.

    "He hasn't popped his head up on any of the social network sites and according to his friends he hasn't been in touch with them either, which is out of character for any 13-year-old."

    Mother hopeful missing son will be found
    Ruth Crouch says she is concerned for his welfare and has urged him to make contact.

    "By this stage I'm wondering how the hell he's managing because he's only 13," she said.

    "He's very inexperienced. He's very young. He's not street-wise."

    Missing boy's mum: 'We just want him to come home'

    Police will continue their search for a missing teenager today after a door knock at Machans Beach yesterday failed to find any more clues to his whereabouts.

    [snip]

    Police say initial investigations indicate Declan has not been abducted.

    [snip]

    ďHe took nothing at all Ė he might have a bit of money with him from pocket money but he hasnít got a bank card to access his account. I know he was bored at school so, maybe, this is a bit of an adventure, I donít know, but I just want him to come home and if he sees this, we want him to know that he can just come home and he wonít be in any trouble.Ē

    THE disappearance of a 13-year-old boy from Cairns has police baffled as they extend their search to include nearby crocodile-infested waterways.

    Emergency workers and SES volunteers will continue the search today for Declan Crouch who went missing from his Machans Beach home last Wednesday.

    Police sent computer items belonging to Declan to Brisbane yesterday for further forensic examination and have also seized control of his Facebook account, which has not been activated since his disappearance.

    No clue in 13yo Cairns boy's disappearance

    Leads into the disappearance of 13-year-old Cairns boy Declan Crouch have been exhausted and searches of bushland have uncovered no clues, leaving police baffled.

    [snip]

    "The investigation will now focus on a conventional investigation with a view to rebuild his movements ... But, quite simply, we have no information from that last sighting," acting Det Insp Kinbacher said.

    A MANNEQUIN dressed in the same clothes Declan Crouch was wearing on the day he went missing will be displayed today at the Machans Beach bus stop where the 13-year-old was last seen.

    Police hope this desperate move will prompt motorists to be on the lookout for Declan and also lead to more clues about where he is.

    It has been a week since the Year 9 Trinity Bay State High School student was last seen getting off a bus at Machans Beach.

    Come home Declan.

    This is a very interesting tactic. I remember they did the same thing when little Keisha Abrahams disappeared (also in Australia). Hopefully someone will remember seeing Declan.

    still no news....police are saying they are baffled.

    A few things I have picked up from facebook conversations are that he recently died his hair purple, he had had a fight with him mum.....someone said on their that the government closed down a youth support centre where kids like him could go to talk about their problems and the controller of the facebook support page agreed with a love heart.

    Quite a few have said there are no problems that can be fixed etc etc etc....this makes me think that maybe he was going thru a rebellious stage (purple hair) like they all do, and having fights with his mum, like they all do and has maybe wandered off for attention, to think things over etc etc....

    However I have been to this area a fair bit and there is a lot of bushy, mangrovy type of areas around it. To get to the northern beaches areas of cairns you actually turn off a roundabout and drive a fair distance to the beach area so there is a lot of bush before you get to the actual little suburb. Cairns has had a lot of rain, a real lot and there has been localized flooding. I am concerned that he is wandering around in nature somewhere which at the moment would be very sloppy and swampy.

    His sister Grace, 18, went on local radio on Wednesday saying her family was distraught and just wanted to see him walk back through the door.
