Dona Davidson and Margaret - Sandy Davidson

Donna Davidson and her mother Margaret still don’t know what happen to little Sandy

Three-year-old Sandy Davidson went missing from his grandmother’s garden in the Bourtreehill area of Irvine, Ayrshire, on April 23, 1976.

As Police Scotland launched a new appeal for information yesterday, his sister Donna called for Nicola Sturgeon to make the heartbreaking mystery her personal priority.

She wants Holyrood ministers to launch a taskforce similar to Operation Grange, the new investigation into Madeleine McCann’s disappearance authorised by Home Secretary Theresa May in 2011.

“I think he’s buried somewhere in Irvine” Ms Davidson said: “I want to push the next Scottish Government to provide money like the British Government did for the McCanns. I don’t see why they can’t do the same for us. Nicola Sturgeon was born in Irvine and she was only a couple of years older than Sandy. She went to school in Dreghorn which is just across the river from Bourtreehill, she might even remember the search when Sandy went missing.”

In the past five years, Scotland Yard detectives have spent more than £12million, taken more than 1,300 statements and investigated more than 60 persons of interest in the hunt for Madeleine.

Ms Davidson, who is certain that her brother was abducted and murdered, said the police in Scotland “could being doing more” to end her family’s heartbreak.

She said: “I think he’s buried somewhere in Irvine. I think one day we’ll find him close to where he went missing. It is a long time ago and whoever did it is not going to have much longer left, that’s why they need to get on and push this forward.”

World’s End murderer Angus Sinclair has been interviewed over the case and Sandy’s mother Margaret has called for him to take a lie detector test.

The serial killer was jailed for life in 1982 for a string of 11 sex attacks on young girls in Glasgow aged between six and 14.

A further charge of assault against a nine year old boy was left to lie on the file, while some have suggested that Sandy – who had curly blonde hair – may have been mistaken for a little girl.

Sinclair, who was convicted of the infamous 1977 double murder of Helen Scott and Christine Eadie at the second attempt two years ago, roamed Scotland in the 1970s looking for victims.

He often used fishing trips as cover for his evil crimes, leading to a theory that he and his brother-in-law Gordon Hamilton may have been at the nearby Annick Water or the River Irvine.

Alternatively, as a painter and decorator, Sinclair could have been working on the sprawling housing estate, which was still under construction at the time.

According to a recent book by retired detective Tom Wood, Sinclair and Hamilton were responsible for at least one brutal crime in April 1976.

With stockings over their faces and armed with a knife and a hammer, they burst into a home in Moodiesburn, Lanarkshire, and tied up a family of three – including a seven year old girl.

In The World’s End: The Final Verdict, Wood and journalist David Johnston revealed the pair then assaulted and robbed the rent collector when he arrived.

Yesterday, Detective Superintendent David Halliday, the senior investigating officer, appealed for information on the 40th anniversary of Sandy’s disappearance.

He said: “It’s hard to imagine the distress and sadness Sandy’s family have endured over the last 40 years, not knowing what has happened to their beloved son and brother, who was only a toddler when he went missing.

Sandy’s family hope the Scottish Government will launch a taskforce similar to Operation Grange

“Despite the passage of time, this missing person investigation remains open and I’d like to take this opportunity on the anniversary of Sandy’s disappearance to ask people to cast their minds back to Friday, April 23, 1976. Did you live in Bourtreehill in

Irvine, specifically around the area where Sandy was last seen in St Kilda Street?

“Friday, April 23, 1976 was a relatively warm day as Sandy played outside with his sister Donna. The community of Bourtreehill was tight-knit and mostly everyone knew their neighbour.

“Did you see Sandy when he left his grandmother’s garden? He was quite a distinctive-looking child with light blonde hair and blue eyes.”

Killer Angus Sinclair has been interviewed over Sandy’s case

Officers said they have been working closely with the charity Missing People to renew the appeal to find Sandy and will be publicising his images over digital billboards and online.

The charity’s chief executive Jo Youle said:

“To spend any length of time with a loved one missing is heartbreaking for a family desperate for news. Sandy’s family have had to endure an unimaginable 40 years since Sandy disappeared. Everyone at the charity joins Police Scotland and the rest of the public in the hope that this new appeal will finally end the limbo that Sandy’s family has been living in since the day he disappeared.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on the 101 number.


Sandy Davidson: Fresh appeal for boy, 3, missing since 1976   Sun 24 April 2016

A fresh appeal for inform­ation about a young Scots child who vanished in 1976 has been launched in an attempt to end the 40-year “limbo” his family has endured.

Three-year-old Sandy Davidson went missing from his grandmother’s garden in the Bourtreehill area of Irvine, North Ayrshire, on 23 April that year.

He was playing at the home in St Kilda Street (there is NO St Kilda Street. Place, Bank, Crescent found here) with his younger sister Donna, then aged two, when the family dog escaped from the garden.

The blonde boy is believed to have gone to look for the pet but never returned.

Despite an extensive search by police and the community there was no trace of Sandy and there have been no positive sightings of him since 1976. Now, on the 40th anniversary of his disappearance, Police Scotland is renewing an appeal for any information which could help answer what happened to the boy.

Det Supt David Halliday, the senior investigating officer, said: “It’s hard to imagine the distress and sadness Sandy’s family have endured over the last 40 years, not knowing what has happened to their beloved son and brother, who was only a toddler when he went missing.

“Despite the passage of time, this missing person investigation remains open and I’d like to take this opportunity on the anniversary of Sandy’s disappearance to ask people to cast their minds back to Friday April 23 1976. Did you live in Bourtreehill in Irvine, specifically around the area where Sandy was last seen in St Kilda Street?

“Friday April 23 1976 was a relatively warm day as Sandy played outside with his sister Donna. The community of Bourtreehill was tight-knit and mostly everyone knew their neighbour.

“Did you see Sandy when he left his grandmother’s garden? He was quite a distinctive-looking child with light blonde hair and blue eyes.”

Over the years, Donna has worked tirelessly in an attempt to trace Sandy and his whereabouts, and has led various campaigns.

Officers said they have been working closely with the charity Missing People to renew the appeal to find Sandy and will be publicising his images over digital billboards and online to try to raise awareness of his disappearance.

The charity’s chief executive Jo Youle said: “To spend any length of time with a loved one missing is heartbreaking for a family desperate for news. Sandy’s family have had to endure an unimaginable 40 years since Sandy disappeared. Everyone at the charity joins Police Scotland and the rest of the public in the hope that this new appeal will finally end the limbo that Sandy’s family has been living in since the day he disappeared.”  TheScotsman

There are some obvious candidates that COULD have taken Sandy, here’s my thoughts

FRED WEST

28 Nov 1962 Fred and Rena arrived in Scotland moving into rented accommodation in Coatbridge. They later moved to Glasgow. Fred West was employed as a driver with a local ice cream company.
11 Dec 1965 Fred West left Scotland and returned to Herefordshire with Charmaine and Anne Marie but without Rena who remained in Scotland. 
Catherine was last heard of in about 1971. Her disappearance was never reported to the police.

I personally think West is unlikely. But, i’ll keep him at back o my mind!

 ROBERT BLACK

MY OPINION ONLY!!

I think Sandys disappearance has Black written ALL OVER IT.

Caroline Hogg

Five-year-old Caroline Hogg was Black’s youngest known victim.(aye, KNOWN) She disappeared while playing outside her Beach Lane home in the Edinburgh suburb of Portobello in the early evening of 8 July 1983,[46] having asked her mother, Annette, if she could play in the playground outside her home “just five more minutes”.[47] When she had not returned home by 7:15 p.m., her parents and brother briefly searched the surrounding streets, where they encountered a boy Caroline’s age, who informed the Hoggs he had recently seen their daughter in the company of a man on the nearby promenade. This in turn caused the Hoggs to frantically search the promenade, before reporting Caroline as missing to Lothian & BordersPolice[48]  Hogg remained in Black’s van for a minimum of 24 hours, although her precise date and cause of death remains unknown. Black is known to have made a scheduled delivery of posters to Glasgow several hours after the abduction, and to have refueled his van in the Cumbrian city of Carlisle in the early hours of the following morning.

Jennifer Cardy

was abducted, sexually assaulted and murdered on 12 August 1981—just two weeks after her 9th birthday.[32] Cardy was last seen by her mother at 1:40 p.m. as she cycled from her house in the County Antrim village of Ballinderry to play with a friend named Louise Major; 

Hours later, Cardy’s bicycle was discovered less than one mile from her home. The stand of the bicycle was downwards, suggesting that Jennifer had stopped her bicycle to converse with whomever had likely abducted her.[32] Despite extensive police inquiries, and an intense search of the vicinity aided by some 200 local volunteers,[33] no potential eyewitnesses to Cardy’s evident abduction could be located.[34]

Six days after Cardy’s disappearance, two duck hunters discovered her body in a dam located close to a lay-by alongside a dual carriageway in the village of Hillsborough;[35] just 16 miles (26 km) from her home. Evident signs of sexual abuse were noted upon Cardy’s body and underwear by the pathologist called to the scene,[36] although a full autopsy concluded she had died of drowning—most likely accompanied by ligature strangulation.[36] The watch she had been wearing had stopped at 5:40 p.m.,[37] strongly indicating she had died four hours after her abduction. Although Cardy’s abduction and murder initially remained unsolved, the location of her body discovery—just yards from a major arterial road between Belfast and Dublin—did lead police to suspect her murderer had been familiar with the vicinity of her abduction and body disposal.

Susan Maxwell

11-year-old Susan Claire Maxwell, whom Black abducted on the afternoon of 30 July 1982. Maxwell lived in the village of Cornhill-on-Tweed on the English side of the Anglo-Scottish border, and was abducted as she walked home. Maxwell was abducted by Black—most likely shortly after she walked across the bridge spanning Susan Maxwell had died shortly after she had been abducted,[43] although her precise date of death remains unknown. Evidently, Maxwell remained in Black’s van—alive or dead—for in excess of 24 hours,[44] as his delivery schedule encompassed  Edinburgh, Dundee, and finally Glasgow, where he is known to have made his final scheduled delivery close to midnight on 30 July. The following day, Black returned from Glasgow to London, discarding Maxwell’s body in a alongside the A518 near Uttoxeter

If he killed in Ireland & bolted to Scotland….

He could EASILY killed in Scotland & fuked off to Ireland!

Then there is the new police appeal .. Why now? Why this year?

Could it be because Black ALLEGEDLY died only a few wks ago?

summary..

The reasons (I think) police should investigate Black’s involvement in Sandy going missing…

  1. Right time period

  2. Had the opportunity -transport

  3. Had Delivery Job

  4. He delivered to Glasgow area

  5. He liked them YOUNG (the fukin bastard)

  6. He picked up kids from the street. Random chance encounters same as the three girls mentioned above

  7. Sandy had a mass o curly blonde hair, could EASILY been mistaken for a girl

  8. The ease of nipping over to Ireland (He has done before)

  9. AT LEAST 12 more deaths linked to Black

  10. His HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS death

  11. The convenient timing of Police Appeal
