UK - Sandy Davidson, 4, Irvine, Scotland, 23 April 1976
I have just heard about this little lad and thought that he warranted a thread.
"Irvine’s Bourtreehill is a respectable area.
The gardens are well-kept and there’s a corner shop here and there. At Broomlands Primary School, mums and dads, grans and granddads wait to pick up their wee ones.
It seems there’s nothing much to single out the area. There are housing estates like this in towns right across Scotland. But Bourtreehill is the home of an enduring mystery.
In April 1976, four-year-old toddler Sandy Davidson went missing from his gran’s garden. It’s possible someone still in the area knows what happened to the cute-as-a-button toddler with the curls.
At the time, a huge police operation swung into action. Doors were knocked, sheds checked, rivers dragged. Nothing. And there’s been no trace of Sandy ever since. It’s as if he just vanished into thin air."

40 years ago tomorrow. Horrible for the family to never know what happened to this lovely wee boy.

He had been playing in the garden with his sister Donna when the gate flew open and their dog escaped on the morning of April 23, 1976. Sandy ran after him while Donna rushed to tell their grandparents what had happened. The curly-haired boy was never seen again...
Donna, now 42, said: "I don't think he's still alive, but we still need to find him. We've never had a funeral or a memorial service and we never will until he's found.
"I think someone reached over the fence and opened the garden gate from the outside, which let the dog out and sent us after it."
