    6 days now :(

    Stepdad has been taken in for questioning as he was the last person to see her.

    Let's hope she shows up on the Croydon CCTV. :hmm:

    Why are the locals having a go at the police for not searching and then doing it themselves.
    No help at all.
    Search if you're asked, but this ludicrous 'the police ain't doing enough' when you have no idea at all what the police are doing.
    Having said that, the expression "grandmother's boyfriend" has a strange ring to it.

    I was pondering whether to start a thead on this, glad you did OP.

    It is not looking good, 6 days is a long time for a child to be missing for any genuine reasons.

    I think this has an inevitability about it, we probably all think the same, its very often family! very sad.

    Seems like a perfectly average age to be a grandma imo.

    It's desperately sad. I don't hold out much hope, I'm afraid, but I very much wish to be proved wrong. :(

    I really hope she turns up but every day that goes past makes it seem less likely :(

    It only requires the mum and the grandma to both have had their kid aged 17, it's not that unusual

    It may not be unusual, but it is a long way from the average.

    Normal enough, the only reason people get het up about it is because they might not be married *gasp* whereas in previous generations being married at 16/17 having kids then totally normal.

    I'm not getting het up, I'm just sayin' that 34 is pretty young to be a grandparent!

    Is it?

    Or is it that a lot of people think 17 year olds a are still children themselves and its a bit young to be having children?

    Anyway its not important, I hope she turns up safely although I fear the worse.

    It's not the norm for children to be having children. In previous generations it was the norm to die in your 40's too, wanna keep that tradition alive too?

    But that's perception isn't it, because society infantilises us these days. Hundred years ago (50 years ago even) 17 was firmly an adult and had been out at work for some years.

    Well no one thought like that when being married at that age for life was fairly normal. So it really is a bit hypocritcal these days when people (not saying you) start hand wringing about teenage mums cos they've always existed.
    For me it'd be too young. For my friend at school she was totally ready at 17.
