    Canada - Robbie Reiner, 5, New Hamburg ON, 26 Dec 2013

    Police received a report of a missing child earlier in the afternoon of December 26th, 2013 in New Hamburg, Ontario. Police fear that the child may have fallen through ice. More information as soon as more is released.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    I understand not doing a water search during the night...
    I do wish they would keep searching elsewhere though.

    Just on the off chance that he wandered away instead of going in the water.
    It would be awful if he was found dead somewhere else because they only looked in the water.

    I agree especially if they found clothing!

    He is 5 yrs old I can only see him taking off the clothes if he got out of the water.
    I don't think a child of 5 would know to take off his clothes while in the water!
    And way to cold to take them off before going on the ice!


    Or someone took the clothes off the child!

    The Waterloo Regional Police set up a command centre near the New Hamburg division of the Royal Canadian Legion, with paramedics, firefighters and police officers helping out in and around the neighbourhood.

    If he was suffering from hypothermia it could have been automatic, not based on knowing or not knowing. Supposedly you get very hot. JMO
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Search for missing boy continues in New Hamburg

    Friday, December 27, 2013, 12:43 PM -



    Crews are scouring the Nith River in search of a boy that has been reported missing.

    Officials began searching the river when footprints were discovered heading toward a hole in the ice, with none heading back. The search began Thursday evening and stopped at around 10 p.m. It continued Friday morning with officials searching the river's edge, checking under trees and other small places.

    The ice on top of the river is thin, with many parts of the river not fully frozen. Crews broke some of the ice to explore the river further.

    I find it a bit strange that a child "under the age of 5" could get out of his home without anyone noticing .... and then still not be noticed to be missing for some time. Unless he was supposed to be in bed?

    Not accusing the parents of anything, just that when my children are quiet for more than a few minutes, I get suspicious and immediately go to see what they are up to!

    Scary to think that a little boy that young would happily wander off alone, and not dressed for the conditions - and then remain out when he must have been freezing, rather than going home to get warmed up, or at least fetch a coat.

    Awful to read of the footprints leading to the hole in the ice, then none coming back..... sounds like its obvious what happened. But then the removing of clothes puzzles me. I get that a child might remove clothes to go for a swim in a river or the sea on a warm day, but would a 4 year old seriously want to swim in a stretch of frozen water?

    Seems the neighbours had some information about him, like what he was wearing. I wonder if he had been at their home prior maybe playing with their child and then was sent home but never made it their, instead he wandered off down to the river. The neighbour obviously saw him as they knew what he was wearing. Must be within very close proximity to be out with just a sweatshirt and track pants. I'm just guessing here as it makes sense how he went missing without anyone noticing long enough to make it to the river. Terribly sad and I fear the worst. JMO.

    Flashlights lit up the area surrounding Peel, Boullee, Grace and Asmus streets as the evening grew darker. Friends, family, neighbours and strangers checked pathways, backyards, bushes, parking lots and benches — anywhere they could think of — even ignoring police requests to go inside when it grew darker and colder outside.

    Actually taking off your clothes while freezing isn't unheard of..

    Actually the boy removing his clothes while he's freezing cold isn't so odd....as odd as that seems. People experiencing slight hypothermia often exhibit altered states of judgment, which is sometimes called being "cold stupid". One common but especially bizarre behavior of hypothermia victims is a conundrum known as "paradoxical undressing".

    When hypothermia sets in, your skin feels as if it was on fire and things rubbing against the skin compounds the feelings. This altered state of mind is the reason why people in advanced stages of hypothermia, take their clothes off.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/541627

    Paradoxical undressing is a term for a phenomenon frequently seen in cases of lethal hypothermia. Shortly before death, the person will remove all their clothes, as if they were burning up, when in fact they are freezing. Because of this, people who have frozen to death are often found naked.

    Seems like a bit of a hike for a small one especially on a very cold day and considering he was not dressed appropriately. It's hard to tell from the overhead view but it seems there is a lot of dense brush and trees along the river close to the area being searched. How did he manage to make it through all that to the river? Of course unless there is a pathway he was familiar with. Hoping for a miracle he is found safe and warm somewhere. MOO.

    Also note, the A on this shot is not where he went missing from. I just happened to google a street mentioned in a report. HTH.

    Quoting myself here but it's been announced he left his house according to this article today.

    He'd apparently left his parents' home and headed toward the river.
