More than seven months have now past since 20 year old Adrian Lynch went missing after attending a works Christmas Party on 4 December 2015.
In our Previous Posting, in the Adrian Lynch series, we published a short VIDEO reconstructing Adrian's last reported movements according to the States of Jersey Police (SOJP). Despite the SOJP nor the mainstream media not sharing the video online it still attracted in excess of 3,700 Youtube views so thank you to all those who did share it. In that previous Blog Posting we told readers there could be theories other than the one(s) the SOJP is going with.
According to the SOJP'S timeline the last reported alleged movements of Adrian was at 2:15-2:30 am in Cooky's Farm as published HERE. Although it could be disputed that this was indeed Adrian as it was not a sighting. We start the video (below) from this location.
We're asking what if something untoward DID happen to Adrian in this vicinity? What if he was taken by car to the North Coast? How long would it take to drive to the North Coast? (Answer in video below)
Why won't the police search the North Coast? What exactly are the police doing now to find Adrian? From what we can see......Very little.
Which brings us onto the second half of the video (below). Earlier this week VFC joined a search party looking for Adrian on the North Coast. There were around half a dozen friends of the Lynch family, including his father Danny all geared up with protected clothing (due to the unforgiving terrain) with machetes/sickles and the like to make their way through the dense brambles/nettles. VFC was unable to take part in the search but did film parts of it.
The questions going through my mind were "why aren't the cops doing this?" "Why should it be left to well meaning friends/members of the public and Adrian's father to do it?" "Why can't the Honorary Police or the Territorial Army do it if the SOJP won't?"
What if one of the searchers discovered the body of Adrian? What if his own father did? Is he, or they, prepared for this? It's all well and good saying "leave it to the professionals" but the "professionals" are not searching for this young boy who is still missing.
After recent headlines in the MSM telling us that the SOJP, over the next three years, need to cut £5.1m from its budget, which reportedly would include the loss of thirty jobs including up to 13 frontline staff. Is it really the case that the SOJP can't afford to continue the search for Adrian? Is it that they can't afford to actually go out and find their own leads regarding Adrian's disappearance rather than waiting for something to land on their desk(s)?
Of course this is mostly assuming that Adrian is dead; but what if he is still alive, possibly being held against his will? Ok statistically that is unlikely but it is (one could argue) more likely than the statistics that suggest he might have died of hypothermia.
If it is the case that he is alive and waiting for the Cavalry to arrive then the sad news is, there is no Cavalry, or they can't afford to feed the horses. The SOJP MUST come out and inform the public that budget does NOT play a part in the investigation (or lack of) in finding Adrian Lynch. Every parent in Jersey must have the confidence and trust knowing that if anything remotely similar should happen to their child the SOJP has the money, resources, expertise and the willing to actively go out and find their child. I would be interested to learn if the Lynch family, or the General Public, do have that trust/confidence in the SOJP.
Back to the video below and the North Coast search.
These searches have been organised by the father of Adrian Lynch we say "these" searches because we are aware that this was the third one to take place in as many weeks. It has to be said that the dedication, and commitment, of those searching is incredible. These people know they are putting their health and safety at great risk yet they toil away for around three hours a session in the hope of bringing some closure to a family left in the most unimaginable limbo and turmoil. Should they have to be doing this? Certainly not, but who else will?
Adrian's father who has organised these searches, knows he is relying on a massive amount of good will from his friends, but how long can this good will last and what happens when it runs out, who can he, or the family, turn to then? We have demonstrated (links below) that his own Parish Constable, and Deputy, don't appear interested. Indeed NONE of the politicians look to have any interest in this sad case other than St. Helier No.3 Deputy Mike Higgins who, as far as we are aware, is the only politician to have been in contact with Adrian's father, and step mother, and the only politician to meet with them and ask questions in the States.
Seven months this young man, Adrian Lynch, has been missing, and instead of scaling back the manpower, resources and investigation shouldn't the SOJP be scaling them up? Would you expect them to if it was your child and is it simply the case that the SOJP simply can't afford to find Adrian?
