    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.

    Hi, I stay 10 mins from this location.

    Seems a witness came forward in 2015 to say that he had been abducted and tortured by a teenage girl about the same time Sandy went missing.

    Police also refusing to excavate the old school that was recently knocked down.

    Here is an article about this - https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/local-news/new-hope-family-missing-sandydavidson-5144036

    This could potentially be the perp in this case. Haunting similarities with Mary Bell.

    I hope she has been thoroughly investigated. I haven't been able to find any updates, but its very concerning that a girl this disturbed and capable of child abuse hadn't been properly dealt with when she abused that boy.
