    Sheila haunts me though. She's like an innocent child from an Enid Blyton story... walking home from school in pretty dress, school shoes, looking forward to her Friday night supper and the weekend's fun and games with her friends. And some monstrous adult man took that all away.

    Bumping for Sheila. Even though her kidnapper would be long since dead, hopefully one day the Fox family will have remains and be able to hold a proper funeral and burial.

    I wonder what Chief Inspector Foyle would have done to solve this one?

    You mean as in "Foyle's War"?

    Same setting, same era, and a similar theme...

    I'd like to see a crime drama tackle a fictional version of Sheila's case. Almost as mysterious as the Beaumont Children...

    unless it was a period piece, any fictional version of Sheila's story on TV would have to take in account that modern primary school girls don't have to wear dresses to school, don't wear big bows in their hair like Sheila did and are monitored much more closely. Also the kidnapper in a TV version would have a car as it's a lot harder to kidnap someone through a bicycle than it was in WWII
