    Australia - Jane, 9, Arnna, 7, & Grant Beaumont, 4, Adelaide, 26 Jan 1966

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaumont_children_disappearance

    Jane Nartare Beaumont (aged 9; born 10 September 1956), Arnna Kathleen Beaumont (aged 7; born 11 November 1958), and Grant Ellis Beaumont (aged 4; born 12 July 1961) were three siblings collectively known as the Beaumont children who disappeared from Glenelg Beach near Adelaide, South Australia on Australia Day, 26 January 1966.

    Their case resulted in one of the largest police investigations in Australian criminal history and remains one of Australia's most infamous cold cases. The huge attention given to this case, its significance in Australian criminal history, and the fact that the mystery of their disappearance has never been explained, has led to the story being revisited by the press on a regular basis. It is also viewed by many social commentators as a significant event in the evolution of Australian society, with a large number of people changing the way they supervised their children on a daily basis.

    This is probably the best place for the details of this case:

    It was interesting to find out from Jane's babysitting note to her parents that the police released that Grant still wore a nappy, at least at night, despite being nearly five.

    This is one tragic case I sadly believe won't ever be solved so much time has passed and the perp most likely dead.

    the Beaumont Children episode of Crime Investigation Australia:

    the re-enacting nine year old "Jane Beaumont" is wearing a bright pink "Speedo" little girl's swimsuit. Was Speedo even around in 1966? And even if they were, did their girl's swimsuits really look like that?

    The re-enacting "Grant Beaumont" was not the right age but it would be hard to find a real four year old that could grasp acting.

    Could you please provide a link, Paul?

    I think the weirdest thing was the police involving that celebrity psychic from Europe, as mentioned in the Crime Investigation Australia episode. It was a desperate gamble to find the children but it only can have discredited the police.

    The Beaumont children were carrying a lot of stuff with them that Australia Day but the items were never found either. The killer probably just burnt them in his backyard incinerator, along with Jane and Arnna's bathing suits and Grant's swim shorts.

    Be nice if it was possible for the Beaumonts to be able to return from the Undiscovered Country ("from whose bourn
    no traveller returns") to Earth and see our time. Though i think there'd be a lot of culture shock for the Beaumont girls upon arriving... for starters, a little girl in 1966 Australia still had to wear dresses to school, even in the coldest weather.
