Just seen on news the nans boyfriend has been arrested, I thought the story sounded a bit odd

EDIT: This information came from the scrolling "Sky News" banner, it appears they were wrong and later changed it to "helping with enquiries"

Saying that Sky News said he was arrested but other news channels say he hasn't, that he is just helping with enquries?

They had them all out of the house earlier so they could send a sniffer dog in. It wouldn't surprise me if they took the time to install a few bugging devices while they were at it.

Lets hope that he assists with the enquiries and doesn't turn into a suspect.

Thought it was a bit odd from the start.Leaves the house with no phone,boyfriend was the last to see her,and she walked from there to Croydon and wasn't once picked up on CCTV?

I must say that it is starting to remind me of the Shannon Matthews kidnap story back in 2008. If it is, at least she would be alive.

BBC News - Tia Sharp: Eighty officers in search for Croydon girl

Except now a witness has now provided a statement which does state that Tia was seen on Friday at approx midday. The other are just possible sightings.

The OP needs to careful with what he thought he heard on the news, could get the whole Forum closed down with careless comments. This is not the local pub.

I presume your not referring to mine as mine was the OP and is completely backed up. :confused:

As sometimes happens in news (and forums) - the rush to be first compromises the rush to be right :) I remember fox news announcing that george bush had one his first election before he really had, which made them rethink their mustbefirstmustbefirstmustbefirst attitude.

I only posted what the news banner on Sky news stated, they said he had been arrested, it appears they got it wrong, don't shoot the messenger.
I noticed, and as soon as you saw/heard that other agencies were reporting different you updated your post(s) accordingly, so don't worry about it :) :thumbsup:

I can't quite put my finger on it but the whole thing makes me uneasy, nothing specific but the nuances of how it's being reported and the statements being released by the police don't seem to give me confidence that this is a straight forward missing person case.

Regardless I sincerely hope the girl is found safe and well as soon as possible.

I don't like the way this story, has sort of been buried by the Olympics. She disappeared on friday, yet all major news channels have led with, how Great Britain has done at the games. I know alot of people go missing each day, but what is more important a medal or the life of a 12 year old.

Only today has she been mentioned more because we haven't won any golds.

Hope she is found alive, but doesn't look promising.

Stuart Hazell, partner of Tia's grandmother Christine Sharp, has returned home after helping police with inquiries. He was not under arrest.
(From the BBC.)

The media do like to stick in irrelevant information to any news story, take the Daily Mail, article about the Step Dad making a plea, choose to include the fact he's a convicted drug dealer. That's going to help with the search...:rolleyes:

The Mail reports the grandmother's boyfriend is a convicted crack cocaine dealer. Is the stepfather also a convicted drug dealer ?

I watch it, but it said her grandmother was the last to see her, didn't mention a mobile phone what so ever, and isn't the entire point of the investigation that she walked from her grandmothers and hasn't been seen since?

So how you know 'she walked from there to croydon' is beyond me, when the police havn't a clue where she is.....

Don't worry - you've clarified from where your coming...

Not sure what news you've been watching.But the reports here from the start have said she left her Grandmother's house to walk to the whitgift centre(Croydon) to buy shoes.The Grandmother's boyfriend,the last person to see her,gave her the money.The mobile phone was mentioned because like most girls her age,she always had her mobile with her.This day she left it at the house to charge.As to the CCTV,early reports said there was no sign of her.Obviously they couldn't have looked at it all yet as Croydon is full of cameras.I suspect they looked at the route she was supposed to have made and there were no signs of her.

BBC News - Tia Sharp: Uncle makes plea for missing Croydon girl

Second paragraph confirms where she was going and it was Croydon.

No mobile confirmation is in the last paragraph.

I had to post this as it does clearly state and back up what SBT is saying is true
