Thirteen-year-old Daniel Morcombe disappeared in December 2003.
Finally, a man has been charged with his murder and my condolences go to the Morcombe family, once again.
I can’t imagine the ongoing grief they have endured and can only hope there may be some sense of relief if Daniel’s body can now be located and his dear young bones laid properly to rest.
I have thought of Daniel and his family many times over the past seven years and eight months and admired the strength and courage of his parents who have fought so hard to find him.
My wish for the Morcombe family – that a twenty-one year old Daniel would be found alive – is no more. My wish now is for full closure.
