Video has been posted about 15 minutes ago.  I hope it plays out of our country and maybe a technically minded monkey would consider embedding it here?

Daniel Morcombe family's traumatic journey reaches climax

    Kathleen Donaghey
    From: The Sunday Mail (Qld)
    August 14, 2011 12:00AM

IT started out as just another missing child report on December 7, 2003, and became the biggest police investigation in Queensland history.

Bruce and Denise Morcombe knew from the minute their son did not return from Christmas shopping at the Sunshine Plaza that something was wrong.

They went straight to police, who at first did not display the urgency the Morcombes believed was needed.

Daniel had been waiting for a bus in broad daylight on the busy Nambour Connection Road, at Woombye, on the Sunshine Coast.

A busload of people had seen him standing there but the driver did not stop. When the back-up shuttle arrived, the 13-year-old was gone.

It took all of 90 seconds for the lives of the Morcombes to be irreversibly changed.

As the weeks passed, Daniel, a twin, did not return home.

Man charged with murder, child stealing, deprivation of liberty, indecent treatment in Daniel Morcombe disappearance

    Kristin Shorten, Renee Viellaris, Peter Hall
    From: The Sunday Mail (Qld)
    August 14, 2011 6:18PM

UPDATED

REGIONAL Forensic Pathologist at Queensland Health Forensic and Scientific Services Peter Ellis has arrived at the scene of the search for Daniel Morcombe.

Professor Ellis arrived about 3.30pm and was seen walking with two police officers towards the swampy area.

He was part of the team sent to PNG to identify those killed in the August 2009 Kokoda plane crash, and was involved in identifying victims of the Bali bombings and the 2004 Asian tsunami.

He is part of a team of Australian forensic specialists on call for Disaster Victim Identification nationally and internationally.

The area of swampland is behind a macadamia farm, deep in the Beerburrum State Forest, near Beerwah.

The crime scene is about 40km from where Daniel was last seen, at a Woombye bus stop in December 2003.

Police from the Sunshine Coast District Tactical Crime Squad, the Sunshine Coast Water Police and SES volunteers are currently scouring the swamp and surrounding bushland by hand.

Man accused of killing Daniel Morcombe faces court, will apply for bail


    Jasmin Lill
    From: The Courier-Mail
    August 15, 2011 11:51AM

HE man accused of the murder of Daniel Morcombe will fight the charges against him and apply for bail in the Supreme Court.

The 41-year-old - who cannot be named - faced the Brisbane Magistrates Court briefly today on charges of murder, deprivation of liberty, child stealing, indecent treatment of a child under 16 and interfering with a corpse.

The charges relate to the disappearance of Daniel Morcombe, 13, who vanished from a bus stop on the Sunshine Coast on December 7, 2003.

The man's lawyer Tim Meehan said he didn't require his client to be brought into the dock, but Chief Magistrate Brendan Butler asked that he be brought down.

With a heavy police presence both in and outside the courtroom, the man - dressed in jeans, a blue t-shirt and a watchhouse issue jumper - sat barefoot and clasped his hands facing away from the public gallery.

THE Daniel Morcombe Foundation website has crashed as the search for the missing teenager's remains continues on the Sunshine Coast.

Police and SES volunteers continue to arrive at the crime scene in the Glass House Mountains, where they are painstakingly scouring bushland and a swamp area between a dam and a macadamia farm.

The weather is fine today but the terrain is rugged. Sandbags were yesterday brought in to stablilise the area being searched.

Yes there are countless people everywhere praying that the remains will be found and this family can have some measure of peace after eight years.  Many people are wearing red today or lighting red candles in remembrance.

I do wonder why they would have a Forensic Pathologist at the site if nothing has yet been found.

Oh and did that video link play OK?

US scouts report sighting of missing Aussie hiker Eric Robinson

    From: AAP
    August 15, 2011 1:50PM

HOPES of finding missing Australian hiker Eric Robinson have lifted after a boy scout group reported seeing him in "good health and good spirits" in the Utah wilderness 12 days ago.

Mr Robinson, 63, from Melbourne, was expected to have completed his hike a week ago.

He set out on July 28 on a 10-day hike of the 160.9km Highline Trail in the High Uintas, a wilderness area in northeastern Utah.

Duchesne County sheriffs asked for hikers to come forward with sightings and at the weekend a bishop leading a scout group called to say he spoke to the Australian on August 2.

Wrong turn on ski field sees woman chased by bulls in 10 kilometre hike to safety

    From: NewsCore
    August 15, 2011 1:48PM

A wrong turn by a skier at one of New Zealand's most popular ski fields forced her to make a difficult 10km cross-country hike - at one stage pursued by a herd of Hereford bulls - to reach safety.

The 55-year-old woman, who was not named, had to walk over "very challenging terrain" in the dark to a farmhouse after she become separated from her skiing companion at Coronet Peak on Saturday, the Otago Daily Times reported.

"She didn't require medical attention, but she was emotionally distressed and exhausted," Queenstown police officer Blair Duffy said. "She was very, very lucky that she was strong enough to keep going."

New Zealand Government to crack down on teenagers spending welfare money on alcohol, cigarettes

    From: The Courier-Mail
    August 15, 2011 12:00AM

THE New Zealand Government has moved to stop unemployed teenagers spending their welfare money on alcohol and cigarettes.

DPA reports that Prime Minister John Key has identified the more than one in four unemployed teens as the initial target of a radical overhaul of welfare rules, to be announced in the lead-up to New Zealad's November 26 general election.

Mr Key's conservative National Party is well ahead of the main Labour opposition in polls, and is tipped to comfortably retain power for another three years, DPA said.

Mr Key reportedly told the party's annual conference in Wellington that out-of-work teenagers, including unmarried mothers, would no longer be given cash benefits.

chi-monkey thank you for letting me know the video plays outside of Australia.  Happy to see you post in here and hope you will do so again soon.  It is so nice to get feedback on what I post as it is mostly a guess at what would interest my monkey friends.

No further news on the missing hiker and the search for Daniel's remains is continuing today and the authorities vow to keep searching but there are hundreds of acres of bushland and swamps in that area.

Experts warn of Facebook, Twitter contempt of court in Daniel Morcombe case

    Alex Dickinson
    From: The Courier-Mail
    August 16, 2011 12:00AM

ANYONE who talks about the possible guilt, identity or history of the man accused of murdering Daniel Morcombe on social networks could jeopardise the trial and face hefty penalties, legal experts have warned.

New media, including Twitter, Facebook and blogs which broadcast to the entire world, means individuals now have a power once only held by major media organisations.

Because the man has been charged, any comments relating to his circumstances published prior to the conclusion of the case could lead the court to deem it impossible for him to receive a fair trial.

Shades of Daniel Morcombe as school bus leaves boy on side of road


    by Robyn Ironside
    From: The Courier-Mail
    August 16, 2011 12:00AM

THE parents of a six-year-old boy who was left on the side of the road in Brisbane's southwest by a bus driver have questioned what lessons have been learnt from Daniel Morcombe's disappearance.

Cody Rosazza caught the bus from his Forest Lake school to his mother's work at Forestdale last Thursday but forgot to tell the bus driver where he had to get off.

When the bus went past his stop outside his mother's workplace, Cody told the driver he had missed the stop.

"The driver got angry and yelled at him 'You should've pressed the buzzer'," the boy's father Massimo Rosazza said.

"He then stopped the bus and told Cody to get out.

"He was in tears at this point but the driver just shut the doors and kept going."

Marcos Ambrose claims first NASCAR win

Tuesday, August 16, 2011 - 5:39 AM
Source: BigPond Sport

Australia's Marcos Ambrose has won the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International for his first victory in NASCAR's top series.

Ambrose, the former V8 Supercar driver, beat Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch on a green-white-checkered finish to atone for a slip-up a year ago on the road course at Sonoma, when he stalled his car under caution while leading with six laps to go before finishing sixth.
