This abduction was a set up.Planned days earlier.

‘This abduction was a setup. The man at the beach was grooming the children days previously.  


After running up from the water’s edge the children laid their out their towels next to where this man had already laid his. He was waiting for them. They knew this individual hence after playing under the sprinklers they walked over to him ( not the other way around) All three willingly and happily they began playing games with him.

The children were regulars to Colley Reserve and so to was this man.    

 As the children played under the sprinklers the man speaks to two sets of couples close by:  

 Did any of you people see anyone with our clothes? We’ve had some money taken from our clothes”. 

Another witness stated the man said:     

” Have you seen anyone messing with our clothes? Our money has been pinched.”    


How did he know Jane had any money? He knew as he looked inside Janes carry bag while they play.

He needed bait to have control so he took the children’s money.

With no money, the children were now dependent on him. He is a nice man and will assist them to get home. This is why the children happily follow his instructions; And walk in the opposite direction from their bus stop and the Bakery.

BUT if none of them has money where did  Jane Beaumont receive this magical pound note from when seen at Wenzel’s bakery buy pastries ? Good question. 

Sure he could have had a car, however, no car keys were spotted and he has no money;  he said so. If he had a car he was from out of the Glenelg area. To collect the pound note and return to Wenzel’s Bakery he could not have been accomplished this in the time frame. He was local. Notice Harry Phipps house? 


 Why was he a local?.

The dotted square area below depicts how far Grant Beaumont could reasonably walk in approximate twenty minutes to a maximum 30 minutes window. This time frame is based on the children walking with this man in a northerly direction away from their bus stop and Wenzel’s bakery around noon. Waiting patiently for the man outside the change shed. Walking ( at a Grant Beaumont pace )  to collect the pound note and arriving at Wenzel’s bakery.

Due to the time frame of around twenty-five minutes the man must have lived within a three hundred metre half radius of Colley Reserve 

                                                                                                          These children did not leave the Glenelg area.
