Yeah but it was different world, in the 70s and Adelaide was just a big town.

Shouldn't this discussion continue in the 'Great Disappearances' thread? The missing Beaumont kids etc. aren't serial killer cases.

I've lost entire days browsing the cases on the Charley Project.

Two boys, Mark Peal (10) and Kevin Lee Connor (13) both went missing at the campsite in Agate Crescent in 1971. They both went to explore WWII bunkers in the area and were never seen again despite an extensive search.

That is really intriguing. If the search was as extensive as indicated then the likelihood has to be that they were taken or murdered.

I suppose they should be on the Disappearances thread.

God I hate it when kids vanish like that. A grown up might be able to fight back, but a toddler?

From what I see, virtually no chance they ran away either

So murder is the only reasonable conclusion.

Not necessarily. If says the two of them went off to explore WW2 bunkers, they could've got lost and fallen down a pit or something. Without knowing what the camp site was like, I couldn't say for certain but I don't believe murder is the ONLY possibility here.

True Harry - I was assuming that the search was as thorough as they said.

Strange that a memorial service was held for the boys only a month after they disappeared.
