Default AED1,500,000 reward for finding Timmy

Well the family are still trying...

Interesting point in the narrative, an Australian woman was believed to be missing for 2 years when she walked out of a Dubai jail last week!

There are phones in all the jails, that doesn't ring true.

It's just so awful for the family not knowing what happened, and all the other families out there in the same position, especially at this time of year when theres an empty seat at the dinner table.

I pray to the gods that this family get some closure on this very soon.

Agreed, that story about the woman being 'missing' in a Dubai jail for 2 years would have been in the news. Also since it clearly hasn't been, how does the wife know about it. Sounds like hearsay to me, similar to the bike gang theory that the uncle was pushing some months ago.

I understand the family are hurting and need some kind of closure, but these are pipe dreams and whoever is pushing this agenda is feeding the wife false hope (in my opinion).

i would guess it is one of the redtops and of course they are likely to have the family's welfare as their main concern..

I have information about Timmy's whereabouts, plus full details of what happened on the night he disappeared........ but I'm not going to tell you - I prefer to put his wife, children and friends through a bizarre form of psychological hell...........

........ oh but wait! What's this?? A big reward!! Oh well in that case, he's locked in a rented garage in Al Quoz. Turn left at the car repair place, then take the second right, and it's the third garage on the left....... the key is under a small rock by the side door. Where are you going to leave my reward money?

I've tried googling it all over, and the only thing it comes up with is the gulf news story.

Sounds very much like hearsay to me, of a very cruel kind.

Funnily enough I was talking about this very thing with my cousin that used to be in the Navy.

What he's heard from his friends that are career sailors, the matelots said Timmy was a – and I quote – a "boring twat" who wouldn't shut up about his wife and kids, and how much he couldn't wait to get back to them.

Apparently he wasn't a huge drinker either, which sort of puts a dampener on the drunk theory.

There's too much that is still unknown.

Certainly doesn't seem to have hit the news here in Australia and its the sort of story the media here would adore

So the missus has made it to Dubai at last after someone bought her a ticket.

Surely a 400 quid round trip ticket doesn't need charity?

Will anything come of it?

Nope.

Good luck on this...

"The purpose of the meeting is for it to be a frank and open discussion between the parties and for them to share the information that each of them have found relating to Timmy's case," said Ms Glover.

We can make something out of this.......... let's find a withered corpse, present it as Timmy, and claim the 1.5 million........... it'll cover a decent BE night out.........
