LITTLE Shannon Matthews has been missing for exactly a week now.
Where is she?
A hunt which has involved hundreds of police officers and desperate friends and relatives appears to have hit a brick wall.
Her family say it is completely out of character and unexpected for her to just go off.
Since the investigation began police have received more than 300 calls about Shannon’s disappearance and have searched more than 200 houses within a half mile radius of her home.
It is every parent’s nightmare.
As her uncle says: “It’s a horrible feeling that she might not even be in Yorkshire anymore.”
Police are of the firm belief that somebody out there has a vital piece of information. It is their duty to come forward.
