Meet the real-life pet detectives

By contrast, cats are trusted to do whatever they please. Owners let them pad around at night, or leave them unattended while they are on holiday (‘always make sure your catflap swings both ways,’ Watkins advises). Added to that is the fact cats can jump or climb anything, and squeeze through the most improbable of gaps.

In short, they may not roam far, but cats can also disappear without a trace. Maow Maow included.  Back on the housing estate, Harrison searches three more gardens, several more sheds and a community polytunnel, all to no avail. Suddenly, a brown, striped cat crosses our path. I am inordinately excited. It looks exactly like Maow Maow.

Harrison looks up for no more than a split second. ‘Nope, not Maow Maow. The legs are too short, and the hair is too long. Close, though,’ she says, turning a bucket over. Then her walkie-talkie buzzes.

What happened to Debbie Melo?

It’s been 17 years since 30-year-old Debbie Melo disappeared in Weymouth. For law enforcement and family members, the search for clues continues on for the Taunton mother of two.

WEYMOUTH – Behind the treeline along Route 18 in South Weymouth, dozens of posh new apartments and condominiums  are taking over the wooded area where police once conducted a massive search for a missing 30-year-old mother from Taunton.

There was no trace of her on the air base or the area around Hartstone florist across the street where her husband told investigators he dropped her off after an argument.

Isabel Celis as she appeared in 2012, when at age 6, she vanished.

Missing Tucson girl Isabel Celis was confirmed dead today, police reported.

Isabel was 6 years old when she disappeared in 2012. Tucson Police Chief Chris Magnus told reporters Friday afternoon that her body was found in “rural Pima County” and was identified by a DNA match.

Magnus did not specify the location or many details at a 3:30 p.m. press conference.

“We see this as absolutely a tragedy,” Magnus said. “We were all hoping to find her alive.”

Isabel vanished on April 20, 2012, from her east side home. The next morning, her father, Sergio Celis, reported her missing when he went to her bedroom to
