I had a look at the names on their charity's website and look at these ITV luminaries:

Patrons - Trevor McDonald, Lorraine Kelly
Ambassadors - Alastair Stewart, Julie Etchingham
Honorary Friends - Fiona Phillips, Phillip Schofield

McDonald's flagship Tonight was responsible for two (maybe three?) programmes in 2007 attempting to rubbish the PJ's case against the McCanns. "So-called evidence" McDonald said, introducing one of the programmes, and ITV daytime shows have been steadfast in their support of anything K&G have wanted them to do since, of course.

There aren't patrons, ambassadors or friends from other UK media organisations associated with the charity, so far as I can see - just ITV.

I'm just musing. It may just be coincidence of course.

How on earth could this well supported charity choose princess tippy toes with a fund (donated by the public initially, ongoing and then topped up by income from libel triumphs and apparently book proceeds) and a few million pounds of UK and Portuguese taxpayers' money to launch anything without considering who they were getting into bed with (so to speak). Had the charity not considered their source of support and income! Did the charity not consider their sponsors might not wish to be linked to anything else? did the charity consult anyone on the appointment of the princess? I don't know who pays the PR team on either side but there's another load of people who need to go.

@On_The_Beat @missingpeople Did you not expect this outrage? did you think we would all be cool with #Kate #McCann as ambassador?



Missing People@missingpeople

Kate was launched today. Twice in the banal interview that is This Morning's trademark was the word 'launch' mentioned. I notice that she was sitting alone on the sofa. I notice that no-one senior (or even junior for that matter) was there to promote the charity and give it credibility.
Yes, launch day!! What a future lies ahead!
They must all be very proud. Only 4 years from the dropping of arguido status to ambassador! What a rise from 2008 to 2012. All in Olympic year too!
History surely has no equal!!!
Or does it....
Titanic. Olympic Class vessel.
Design approved 1908. Sank without trace on maiden voyage in 1912 less than one year after her official launch..
1908 to 1912 Olympic Class
2008 to 2012 Olympic Year

The 10th of July was also the date the Luftwaffe launched its first attack in what became known as the battle of Britain.
That didn’t last long either.....

Maybe at the moment, but I think they will realise that this was a bad move and be forced to change their minds. I know it's a bit different but remember Bob Diamond standing up defiantly saying he wasn't going to quit Barclays and the 24 hours he was gone due to the incredible weight of public opinion and media pressure.

I feel very inclined to agree with you there. I reckon this may well be what tipped Steel Magnolia OTT. One thing that puzzled me at the time on that is that she said she had spoken to a detective – not on Op Grange – and as a result of what he said it turned her blood cold and that he had left his name and phone number but she felt no need to call him back.
This implies to me that she did not in fact call SY but this detective phoned her and left an official number on which he could be contacted for verification. The detective probably tipped her off on this and felt no need for anonymity as it would be all over the media within a week.

If I am not mistaken, it seems missingpeople are certainly not singing from the same hymn-sheet as missingkids (i.e. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children) regarding missing & exploited children and I for one, would certainly raise a questionable eyebrow at this latest news.

THOSE WHO VICTIMIZE CHILDREN ARE USUALLY NOT STRANGERS

By Ernie Allen, President and CEO

National Center for Missing & Exploited Children

The recent events at Penn State University and Syracuse University serve as reminders that the sexual abuse and exploitation of children is an all-too-present fact of modern life. Yet, millions of Americans do not believe that this problem exists at all. Why?

Overwhelmingly, the child victims do not tell. Leading scholars and researchers tell us that at least 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 10 boys will be sexually victimized in some way before they reach the age of 18, and just 1 in 3 will tell anybody about it. These are America’s hidden victims. We have made progress as a nation in attacking this problem but even today, two out of three child victims suffer in silence. They don’t tell Mom, they don’t tell Dad, they don’t tell anybody.

Millions doubt the existence of these heinous crimes for another reason. The offenders do not match society’s stereotype. Most Americans want to believe that someone who would prey upon a child sexually is evil-looking, a menacing, frightening stranger.

Yet, we have learned that most often those who victimize children are not strangers to the child, they are known to the child. They seek out legitimate access to the child. We should never be shocked when someone who abuses a child is a volunteer or employee of a youth-serving organization, or a school, or a daycare center, or many other settings that provide easy, low-risk access to children. That is why the leading child-serving organizations have taken bold steps to do background screening of their staff and volunteers, and then monitor and supervise the interactions between adults and children.

In monitoring sex offender treatment groups and programs, one hears a chilling word, “grooming.” Most often, these offenders who prey upon children do not snatch their victims randomly from the streets, they groom their victims, win their confidence and trust through friendship, kindness, and then they violate it. In so many of these cases, the child is made to feel responsible, like it is his or her fault. And the child is often intimidated or threatened by this person of trust and authority.

Even if they decide to tell, will anyone listen to them? Will anyone understand? These children feel that no one will believe them even if they do speak out, and too many adults simply do not listen to or understand what children try to tell us.

The offenders are not dirty, menacing strangers, they are respectable citizens – doctors, lawyers, businessmen, teachers, police officers. Often they are people who outwardly show deep and enduring commitment to helping children in need.
What can you do? What can every citizen do? First, communicate with your children and empower them. Make sure that they understand that you love them, trust them, believe them and that if anyone ever touches them in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable, they should tell you or a trusted adult.

Second, the first line of defense is a vigilant public. If you see it, know about it or suspect it, report it. Call your local police and then call 1 (800) THE LOST or report it to www.cybertipline.com, at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

The sexual exploitation of children is not a problem that only happens somewhere else. It is happening in big cities and small towns across America. Thousands of children fall victim to sexual exploitation every year. We need to do more. Because every child deserves a safe childhood.

Could they have picked a better person to generate maximum publicity than KM? We'll all be looking at the posters now won't we.

I don't think they're too bothered about what actually happened in PdL on May 3 2007. It's all about 'market share' - charities compete with each other just like any other company in any business sector.

We should just ignore it, and look at the posters of course.

Paula J**** You may not be intentionally condoning leaving children alone but in your actions you are putting out the message that it's ok. You're justifying the McCanns going out every night and leaving their children in an unlocked apartment, and not only that, justifying them leaving them unattended where ANYTHING could happen. How do you rationalise this?

What exactly is the background to this group/charity ? Is it not a relatively new organisation or am I wrong in thinking that ? If I am right, then I smell a big rat. Was this organisation set up in order to appoint Healy as an ambassador, thus fulfilling the aim that has been there since way back in 2007 ?

I still want to know how a Charity can be a Limited as well? Or is it just included in the name?

This is the description of their activities:
MISSING PEOPLE OFFERS A LIFELINE FOR THE 250,000 PEOPLE WHO RUN AWAY AND GO MISSING EACH YEAR. FOR THOSE LEFT BEHIND, WE SEARCH AND PROVIDE SPECIALISED SUPPORT TO END THE HEARTACHE AND CONFUSION.
