Thank you Cookie.  I know several monkeys are concerned about Nightowl and her family.  It would be nice for her to know that we often think of them.


Also for any other monkey wishing to contact me by email, the link is under "website" on my profile and does not link to any email provider automatically.   You have to copy and paste the addy into your email letter.

I do hope these reported finds are positive leads and not just speculation by the media.

Police find second shoe thought to belong to missing teen Daniel Morcombe

    David Murray, Kathleen Donaghey
    From: The Sunday Mail (Qld)
    August 21, 2011 12:00AM

AS another shoe was unearthed in the search for Daniel Morcombe's remains yesterday, the gravity of their task was not lost on State Emergency Service volunteers.

"Remember what we're looking for," shouted one group leader, as the searchers scoured both sides of an overgrown creek bed off Kings Rd in the Glass House Mountains.

Seven days after father-of-three Brett Peter Cowan was charged with Daniel's abduction and murder, the search for the Sunshine Coast teenager's body has intensified.

The second shoe, believed to match another found earlier last week, was unearthed 10m away about 10am at the Beerwah site yesterday, reinvigorating weary police and SES workers.

Both shoes will be DNA-tested and Daniel's parents, Bruce and Denise Morcombe, were last night informed of the latest development.

The rugged site is physically and emotionally challenging, but no one wants to miss a clue that could bring Daniel's heartbroken parents closure and help solve one of Australia's most baffling mysteries.

Undercover police lived alongside Daniel Morcombe accused Brett Peter Cowan at Perth caravan park

    Renee Viellaris
    From: The Sunday Mail (Qld)
    August 21, 2011 12:00AM

UNDERCOVER police officers lived for months at the same Perth caravan park as the man accused of murdering Daniel Morcombe.

Brett Peter Cowan had no idea that almost every moment of his life was being monitored by detectives living just metres from him.

They watched him eat, work and interact with residents at the leafy Crystal Brook Caravan Park.

Unaware of the covert operation, the former tow-truck driver was relaxed, spending some of his time doing odd jobs at the park, becoming the unofficial handyman for older residents.

... and we paid someone to produce a report saying what every thinking person already knew ?

Welfare-dependent parents set their children up for failure, Federal Government report finds


    by Renee Viellaris
    From: The Sunday Mail (Qld)
    August 21, 2011 12:00AM

BLUDGING parents who stay on the dole for too long are setting up their kids for failure, a Federal Government-funded study has warned.

And the bad news is that the longer parents have their hands out, the worse it is for their kids.

The report, to be released today, will be used to support tough-love measures to be adopted next year by the Gillard Government, which will force welfare recipients to be better parents, get more education or a job.

Grieving parents of Emily Spickler arrive in Australia to reclaim their lost angel

    Jodie Munro O'Brien
    From: The Courier-Mail
    August 20, 2011 12:00AM

GLAMOROUS American model Emily Spickler turned and waved to her family one last time before disappearing into the crowd.

As the 19-year-old went through the security gates at the Baltimore airport on July 8, ready to start her year-long study adventure in Australia, no one imagined it would be the last time they would see her alive.

Yesterday, her grieving family - father Jeff, 60, mother Jill, 46, and brother Levi, 16 - arrived in Australia to collect Emily's body and take her home to Shepherdstown in West Virginia.

 ::snipping2::

Father Jeff Spickler yesterday revealed Emily had an inherited blood disease called spherocytosis - a condition he shared - but since having her spleen removed at the age of five, his daughter had never needed medication for the condition.

You're very welcome cookie.   


And now for something "hot off the press" posted 15 minutes ago at 5.49 pm our time.

Praying this is what everyone has hoped for all these years and thinking of Daniel's parents and how they can cope with all the latest developments.

    From: The Courier-Mail
    August 21, 2011 5:49PM

BONES found at the search site where police and SES are looking for the remains of Daniel Morcombe have been confirmed as human.

The three bones were located near to where a second shoe was found yesterday in the primary search site off Kings Road, Beerwah.

A preliminary forensic analysis was conducted on the bones, and late this afternoon they were confirmed as human.

No further details have been confirmed.

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.

 ::snipping2::

I watched this race and was routing for him to win (my favorite, who shall remain nameless ran 14th).
Thanks for all the postings and congratulations!
Ambrose did it again! in Montreal in the Nationwide series . . . he's on a roll!

4 Donks and Cookie - there are so many people here trying not to get their hopes up about the discoveries but each new bulletin seems to have something more that is positive.  There was no search today owing to bad weather but there has been confirmation on the shoes being the same type.  It is difficult to get any information from our police at any time on cases like this, so to release this fact is a real break for the waiting public.

In a short TV interview, Daniel's father has described the news as a "relief" that their eight years of wondering may be at an end.

Shoes found at search site match Daniel Morcombe's runners

    Kristin Shorten, Steven Wardill
    From: The Courier-Mail
    August 22, 2011 4:39PM

TWO shoes found at the search site where police allege Daniel Morcombe was murdered match the brand the Sunshine Coast teen was wearing when he went missing.

Deputy Police Commissioner Ross Barnett confirmed this afternoon the shoes were Globe skate shoes.

They will be DNA tested to determine if they belonged to Daniel.

Police had previously refused to reveal if the shoes matched the new Globe runners the teen was wearing when he went missing.

The announcement came as bad weather forced police to call off the search for the rest of today.

Police say the search will not resume today, adding that conditions will be monitored so the search can continue as soon as practical.

The scene will continue to be guarded by police.

Thank you Muffy - he was a good looking lad.

Still no searching at the site owing to poor weather conditions.

Daniel Morcombe's brothers visit search site at Kings Road property

    Kristin Shorten
    From: The Courier-Mail
    August 24, 2011 11:35AM

DANIEL Morcombe's brothers have visited the alleged crime scene where the missing Sunshine Coast teenager is believed to have been murdered and buried.

Daniel's parents Denise and Bruce, his twin brother Bradley, 21, and older brother Dean, 23, visited the secluded Sunshine Coast macadamia farm yesterday afternoon.

The Kings Rd property in the Glass House Mountains was deserted during the visit after the search for Daniel's remains was suspended on Sunday due to poor weather, but the site remained under police guard.

"It wasn't fantastic conditions out there and we couldn't go into the primary site anyway," Mr Morcombe said.

"We sort of stood at a viewing rim, at a little bit higher ground than the primary site.

"Denise and I had been to the same spot a week ago but it was the first time the boys had been there and all four of us stood in silence for a number of minutes."

Bones found earlier this month near Beerwah belonged to Daniel Morcombe, police confirm


    Paddy Hintz
    From: The Courier-Mail
    August 28, 2011 2:04PM

A POLICE conference in Brisbane on Sunday morning has confirmed that bones recently found near Beerwah belonged to missing teen Daniel Morcombe.

Police said the Morcombe family had been advised and the search for other evidence continues.

Daniel went missing almost eight years ago, aged 13, and an arrest in his case more than a fortnight ago led to a search for his remains in muddy bushland near Beerwah, on the Sunshine Coast.

The exhaustive search at the end of Kings Rd in the Glass House Mountains area uncovered three human bones and a pair of Globe shoes identified as being similar to those worn by Daniel at the time of his disappearance.

Deputy Commission Ross Barnett said a laboratory in Adelaide had provided the breakthrough for police late last night by being able to confirm that the bones belonged to Daniel.
