Abduction fears fail to disappear

TERRIFYINGLY, there have been four attempted teenage kidnappings over the past month. And that is just in Calahonda.

Fortunately, in each case the victims have managed to escape the clutches of their assailants in the nick of time.

However, the mental damage will long linger in the minds of the young victims and their distraught families.

Most frightening of all is the attempted abduction of 15-year-old Grace Preston. On a routine walk home from school, two men attempted to snatch her off the street.

It is a tribute to Grace’s quick-thinking and sheer bravery that she managed to flee and hide from these sick people.

For it doesn’t bear thinking about what may have happened.

It is almost, exactly two years since the disappearance of Irish teen Amy Fitzpatrick, and fears still persist regarding the safety of the Costa del Sol’s young, vulnerable youths.

And chillingly, it would seem, more than ever.

  1. Obviously Amy Fitzpatrick isn’t going to be found. This is just like the American movied called “Taken.” They convince teen girls aged 15-20 that “Taxies are so Damn expensive, why don’t we share one.” Then, the taxi drops the girl off, they know where the girl lives. They kidnap her, and are sold into sex slavery. I’m sorry, but from the evidence, Amy isn’t coming back. She’s most likely dead. I pray that she’s not, but there’s no hope at all anymore.
