Birmingham news Police statement on Milk Carton Kids 'activity' as families hold breath PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - Police have released a statement after it was revealed Milk Carton Kids volunteers were liaising with a HS2 contractor over a new site
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! West Midlands Police has released a statement after it was revealed Milk Carton Kids volunteers are working with a HS2 contractor. A new site has been identified after a so-called "source" came forward with information about two missing boys. Lee O’Toole, the brother of missing David Spencer, was this morning negotiating with workers and security officers near the NEC Birmingham. It is hoped the new location could lead him to the remains of his brother. David Spencer disappeared with friend Patrick Warren at a petrol station near his home in Chelmsley Wood on Boxing Day 1996. The duo were never seen again and became known as the Milk Carton Kids following an appeal.

BBV’s expert site engineers are carrying out soil removal works on the construction site and, as with any such works, are operating with care and precision. We have agreed to keep Mr O’Toole informed of progress and are also in liaison with the Police.” Now, West Midlands Police has released a statement. Relations between the families of the two boys and the force have been strained for many years amid allegations detectives failed to take the historic case seriously.

Last year, a huge community effort after a “credible tip off” saw a site in Elmdon, Solihull, levelled. The unofficial dig lasted for months and morphed into a highly organised effort staffed by volunteers who ignored a police appeal to stop. Devastated sibling O’Toole has vowed to stay away from the new site as workers carefully work around a section of interest. HS2 insisted works were continuing as normal and said volunteers would not be allowed on the land. BirminghamLive has been told the new site was identified after a source came forward during the early weeks of the Elmdon dig. The new land was also looked at by a separate vigilante group earlier this year after permission was granted by contractor BBV. A source close to O'Toole yesterday said: "HS2 is starting work tomorrow. It's just HS2 digging it. We just told them if they don't do it we will. "Lee is smiling. He is similing. This is massive. It's close to Chelmsley Wood. I'm not saying we're going to find anything but it's got to be eliminated." Do you have a story?
