    Canada - Adrien McNaughton, 5, Holmes Lake ON, 12 June 1972

    Adrien McNaughton was with his family on a fishing trip in Holmes Lake, Ontario. On June 12 1972, he wandered away from his father and three siblings into a wooded area and was never seen again. Extensive searches of the area turned up no possible evidence on his whereabouts.

    The podcast Someone Knows Something is currently exploring Adrien's case.

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Adrian McNaughton who lived in Arnprior, was last seen wandering into a wooded area near Calabogie where he had been fishing with his father and three siblings on Holmes Lake — around 100 kilometres west of Ottawa, on June 12, 1972.


    Someone Knows Something - Episode One: The Family

    In the first episode, Ridgen speaks to the McNaughton family, visits the lake where the boy was last seen and uncovers a new lead about what happened before Adrien disappeared on June 12, 1972.

    Someone Knows Something - Episode Two: Mr. Ring

    Danny Ring, or Donnie as he's more commonly known, was also fishing with the family that day.

    And yet, he's never been interviewed by the media.

    Ring is still living in the area, and in episode two of SKS, host David Ridgen tracks him down at his home in the backwoods of Eastern Ontario, not far from where Adrien was last seen.


    Someone Knows Something - Episode Three: The Theories

    David Ridgen picks up the pieces of his investigation into Adrien's disappearance in episode three of SKS.

    But the more he searches for answers, the more questions arise.

    How far could little Adrien have gotten? Is it possible that there was yet another adult at the lake that day?


    Someone Knows Something - Episode 4: Hello, Adrien?

    In episode four of SKS, David Ridgen enlists the help of forensic artist Diana Trepkov to move his investigation into the fate of Adrien McNaughton from the past into the present day.

    Thank you for the great starting post, I have been following this podcast but only just came looking on WS.
    The last ep, with the forensic artist, was an interesting process to hear.

    Forensic artist Diana Trepkov creates a series of age-progression sketches of Adrien McNaughton, showing what the five-year-old boy might look like today, as a 49-year-old man.

    That was a good episode, really in-depth and personal way to make an age-progression image. The entire series has been good so far and it's great to see that the family is willing to sit down and discuss Adrien & the disappearance.

    Someone Knows Something - Episode Six: The Scent

    In episode six of SKS, handler Kim Cooper and her cadaver dogs Breeze and Grief continue their search of the area around Holmes Lake, where five-year-old Adrien McNaughton was last seen.

    They are joined by highly trained volunteers, Pauline Sunman and her dog Quinn, as well as Susan Reid and her dog Zappa.

    If Adrien died that day in June 1972, these four dogs might be able to find him.

    Someone Knows Something - Episode Seven: First Attempt

    In episode seven of SKS, David and members of the Ottawa Valley Search and Rescue Dog Association return to a snow-covered Holmes Lake.

    Weeks earlier, four cadaver dogs seemed to suggest that they were detecting the scent of human remains coming from the lake.

    All four made intriguing signals at a specific spot along the shoreline — about 150 meters from where a missing five-year-old boy, Adrien McNaughton, was last seen in 1972.



    Someone Knows Something - Episode Eight: Clyde Forks

    In episode eight, Shontelle McNaughton and David Ridgen get lost on the back roads of rural Eastern Ontario, searching for the remote town of Clyde Forks.

    Two separate psychics, working independently, pointed to Clyde Forks in their readings of Adrien McNaughon's fate and whereabouts.

    What are the chances that Adrien has been living out his life, in a secluded town an hour's drive from his family home in Arnprior?

    Volunteer divers search lake in 1972 cold case of Adrien McNaughton
    Search comes after CBC true-crime podcasts revealed 4 different cadaver dogs marked same spot


    Belgian Malinois cadaver dogs, trained to only react to the scent of human remains, were brought to the lake — a first in the case, Ridgen said.

    Four different dogs marked the same spot on the lake on four different days.

    "We're following new information. It always surprises me that you can actually find new information," he said.

    Episode eleven: Terminus
    A cold case is like a lakebed, with the truth lying somewhere beneath layers of sediment.

    If you want answers, you'll have to reach down through years of leaves and muck.

    You might get lucky and find something, especially if you know where to look.

    But you're just as likely to only stir up the silt, further clouding your view.

    What we learned in season one of Someone Knows Something

    David Ridgen reflects on the Adrien McNaughton case
    By David Ridgen

    In the search for Adrien, we learned that, in the absence of factual information, humans tend to fill that void with their own narrative in order to make sense of something traumatic.

    Adrien’s family learned this first hand in the wake of his disappearance.

    Many in the region either participated in the gigantic search for him or knew someone who had and, with this much at stake and so little information, rumours of all stripes were quickly generated.

    Some of them persist to this day.

    We also found that human memory, while volatile and prone to exclusion, can work better on repeat visits.

    Each interview with the McNaughton family and others associated with the case brought out more corroborable information.

    So when TV and radio programs conduct investigations and only interview subjects once (and sometimes you can only get one crack), we should ask ourselves, “Did they get everything that the person knows?”

    I would say, “No.”

    Missing Arnprior boy’s cold case may have new clues

    http://www.insideottawavalley.com/ne...ave-new-clues/

    A CBC podcast dedicated to finding an Arnprior boy missing for four decades may have recovered a tooth and another possible clue.

    Someone Knows Something (SKS) finished season one in May but continued to search for Adrien McNaughton, the five-year-old who disappeared without a trace from Holmes Lake, near Calabogie, in 1972.
    “About halfway through the day, the search team on shore identified a small hard object, slightly tapered, shiny with white and yellow gradations,” reads the website. “Could it be a tooth?”

    It was discovered in eight feet of water, about 20 feet from shore, near the location where the dogs indicated.

    This object, and others deemed to have potential for further study, were placed in plastic bags.

    “The SKS team is currently in the process of finding the right forensic dentist to determine whether the small white-ish object is, in fact, a tooth.”

    This ( possible tooth ) could be a very important find!
