A meeting with Aalia’s parents

February 28th, 2009

I’ve got a lead on Aalia.

A search alert email popped in to my inbox, pointing me to this video by her parents.
The badge that we found when we went to meet the mysterious source was Aalia’s and now she’s gone missing.

The Family Malham

February 25th, 2009

Rachel and I owe Sam Rocz big time. She posted this to my Facebook wall yesterday:
Jim’s name on the picasaweb site is Mylo Malham, which I searched for and found this; - the same Jim, perhaps?
Sam’s theory?

A break

February 19th, 2009

After a depressing few days, this is truly exciting.
Honestly, I didn’t want to say so, but I was about ready to put the whole Schoenberg story to bed, count my losses and move on. But this changes everything.

February 18th, 2009

I met with Phil the editor of Frontier Genetics. Having promised to share my footage, here it is:

Your help hugely appreciated

February 18th, 2009

Thank you!

Frontier Genetics seem to have been adequately pestered and now I have an appointment to meet with Phil Jackson, the editor there. It’s clear to me that something is rotten over there and I don’t intend to let them off the hook.
