Missing boy in the UK

I found this article about Kevin Hicks, a sixteen-year-old boy who disappeared from the town of Croyden in Surrey, England back in March 1986. The article says his grandmother is still alive at 89 and still looking. His parents are dead. Mom died of a brain tumor in 1994, according to this article, and a comment on this blog entry says Dad died in 2004. There’s another article that talks about his younger sister, who now has kids that are older than Kevin was when he disappeared.

It looks like Kevin just vanished without a trace. He was apparently happy at the time of his disappearance and didn’t have any personal problems. He went out to a local convenience store to get eggs, and just disappeared. There’s no indication as to whether it was foul play, or an accident, or what.

    I read about Kevin Hicks before, and it’s just so weird that a teenage boy goes to the store for eggs just a couple of blocks away and never returns. I mean this is a residential area, (looked it up on Google), and no one saw or heard anything or his body was never found.

    No one probably would have noticed anything if he took a ride with someone … it wouldn’t be anything out of the ordinary and could have happened in a moment … it was still a time when you might not have been too much into stranger danger.

    The key words here are ‘apparently happy’. When attributing happiness to any member of the species, the word ‘apparently’ should be always be attached.
