    I have not heard of sarah Wellgreens but will look it up now. The Leah Croucher case really bothers me, I feel like the police just dont seem bothered. JMO. Yes I think with BW case the mum is just as involved as the father. Just the way she has been acting and certain things she has said.

    What also strikes me as odd is that there is no trace on social media of ScW pre SaW! He is 50 years old ! I want to know what his life was before meeting SaW we know he was married but that is all we know.

    I agree, the public shouldn't be searching now. I just think it speaks volumes that they were no searches arranged by parents/ community when she first went missing. Of course, given the charges that makes sense now. When you compare to cases like Becky Watts there was a very public search in the early days. I agree there shouldn't be any searching by the public now, that's for the police to coordinate and make sure evidence is not disturbed. Not to mention it would be searching for a needle in a haystack, LE obviously have reason to be searching specific areas. There seems to be so little attention drawn to this case even now with charges brought :(

    Yes I agree, this why i find it similar to Leah Croucher case too as early on there was no public searches and even now most people have not even heard about it as very little has been in media. Sometimes I think when there is little in the media its because the police know very early on who is responsible and they are gathering evidence quietly behind the scenes.

    Also of note that none of BW's friends have talked to the media - even when she was just "missing". ISTR seeing somewhere that they had been told not to by the police?

    I wondered if this could be to do with Covid though. I’m guessing the police and media can’t be seen to be encouraging large groups of people gathering and either setting off on searches or holding vigils, like would usually happen.

    I don't think it's strange really. Don't forget social media hasn't really been around that long and some people are late to joining it, if at all.

    And part of the difficulty is that it's a really common name.

    Facebook has been popular for at least 10 years, before that was My Space,Friends reunited etc I expected someone so obsessed with social media to at least leave a print before SaW came along, but I agree with the previous poster his name makes it hard, although I did find SaW my space under her maiden name.

    I agree plus a past marriage can be something you’d rather forget - or in facebooks case delete !

    It'll be interesting to see if Sarah's words early on are leakage with regards to where her body has been hidden. To me it sounds as if her body is in a secluded area or buried, and it will indeed have to be found, rather than merely spotted by a member of the public.

    Aug 5th - "I know my baby girl wouldn't be out in the open. She's scared of being out in the dark alone..." "...I'm desperate for my daughter to be found."

    Sep 10th - "Bernadette if you can see this, please let us know that you are safe. You can set up a new Facebook or Instagram darling and message us, that way you can let us know that you're safe without giving away your location."

    I don't get the feeling from this that she is in water.

    I agree I don't think she is in water and is in a very rural location (I think they were both into Urban Exploration sites but may be wrong). I wonder where the 'Dolls in the Woods photos were taken as I do think it will be a location they know nobody really visits? I worry she may never be found due to length of time now.

    Yes I think if I were thinking of where to put a body I would stay within an area I knew well. The thought of going to a new area would throw up too many unknowns if it's not just quickly dumping a body by the roadside but taking time to conceal it. Woodland provides the perfect cover, especially parts that are overgrown and not walked by dog walkers.

    I wonder if the police saw those photos on ScW Flickr account? As I had the same thought that they might have buried her somewhere near there.

    IMO I don't think she was killed at home, I think with so many other children in the house and neighbours in close proximity then they would have been charged far earlier. I'm thinking it was pre-meditated as I think there will be an element of truth in the whole 'ran out of car' and also I'm sure a cadaver dog would have picked that up from the car and also forensics if a body had been placed inside it. Whole thing is too awful for words, my heart goes out to that beautiful young girl and her family and really hope they find her so she can get a proper burial and the family can get some sort of closure.

    I'm struggling to understand how they both would of done it together and the rest of the children not be aware? Like who was looking after the baby? You can't just go out for a few hours and leave a baby, unless the older children were left to babysit? Honestly, this case baffles me.
