    Beaumont Children Australia.

    A new police search will be made for the Beaumont children at an Adelaide factory site once owned by a man police have investigated as part of the case.
    Key points:

    • Police will excavate a new area of the Castalloy factory in search of the Beaumont children
    • The site was previously searched in 2013
    • The Beaumont children went missing on January 26, 1966



    The three children went missing from Glenelg beach on January 26, 1966.
    Adelaide businessman Harry Phipps, who died in 2004, once owned the North Plympton site on which police will again focus their investigation.
    The Beaumont case has been subject to a review by SA Police's Major Crime Investigation Branch in the past year.
    At the same time, Channel 7 conducted its own probe into the disappearance of Jane, 9, Arnna, 7, and Grant, 4, and made police aware of geophysical test results and new information from witnesses.

    I wonder if Phipps is a suspect now, even though he's deceased and they said he was NOT a suspect in 2013. I also have to wonder what kind of a tip or ?? they received to search the factory again.

    Weird about Phipps' son saying he saw the kids in his back yard the day they disappeared in 1966.

    I just hope the childrens remains are found and laid to rest,the parents are still alive and in their 90,s now,all that time not knowing what happened to their children,what a nightmare.

    TODAY, one of Australia’s greatest mysteries could finally be solved — or it may be yet another false dawn in the 52-year-long search for the Beaumont children.

    At 8am, police will begin a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], after cutting-edge scanning technology identified an “anomaly” in the ground.
    That anomaly matches and size and shape of a hole dug by two young men only days after the Beaumont children went missing from Glenelg Beach on Australia Day, 1966.
    The hole was dug at the behest of the co-founder of the factory [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who has become a principal person of interest in the disappearance of Jane, 9, Arnna, 7, and Grant, 4.
    Forensic specialists, Major Crime detectives, academics and members of the SES will be present at the dig, which follows an earlier excavation at the same property by police in 2013 in which nothing was located.
    We’ll be reporting from the site from 7am and live on Facebook when the dig begins.

    Alan Whiticker is the co-author of The Satin Man, and revealed Harry Phipps, the former owner of the New Castalloy factory, as a possible suspect.
    The book outlined a case against a man, later identified as deceased Phipps, who was referred to as the "Satin Man" due to his apparent fetish for wearing satin clothing.

    A new dig will begin today as police search for any clue as to the fate of the Beaumont children.When police unsuccessfully searched the site, they were questioned as to why they dug in one small area and were accused of ignoring information from the two men who claimed to have dug the hole.
    9NEWS understands that since that search, police have been provided with new information which supports claims that another area of the property needs to be explored before the theory can be either confirmed or laid to rest.
    Former police officer Bill Hayes revealed to A Current Affair that he spoke with Mr Phipps' son shortly after the information was given to Mr Whiticker.

    Harry Phipps, a wealthy Adelaide businessman, died in 2004 but remains a person of interest in the Beaumont children case.Read more: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "He told me that his father was a pedophile," Mr Hayes said.
    “The description of his father fitted very closely to the description given of the man seen playing with the children.
    “His father had a habit of handing out pound notes to children," Mr Hayes told A Current Affair.

    "He told me he was taking them (the Beaumont children) to a place, a factory, that the father owned.
    "His exact words were, 'they are in the sand pit, Bill.'"
    The former sand pit is now a car park covered in layers of bitumen and concrete.

    If the children were buried there, I hope they're discovered today...it's been too long.

    Update on Beaumont Children dig - the operation is continuing, nothing has yet been found, if anything is found, Mr Beaumont will be the first to be informed. A police liaison officer will be with him throughout the day.

    There are 2 other children missing from the same area altho a few years after the Beaumont children went missing.


    FRESH leads in the 41-year-old Adelaide Oval abduction cold case put a key suspect at the ground on the day of the crime and link him to an abandoned Prospect home with an underground bunker.

    Major Crime police have confirmed they are assessing details of Stanley Arthur Hart’s link to the Prospect property, provided to them by The Advertiser last month.
    Hart’s family also say the known paedophile, whose former Mid-North property was extensively searched by police as recently as December, would “almost certainly” have been at Adelaide Oval on *August 25, 1973, when Joanne Ratcliffe and Kirste Gordon were abducted.
    Hart died in 1999.
    Cold case detectives are working on a full summary of the Adelaide Oval abduction investigation, they have told Joanne’s sister Suzie Wilkinson.
    As SA Police continue a 13-week State’s Most Wanted Cold Case Unit campaign to try to bust some of the state’s 110 unsolved murders, strongly backed by media channels, *Detective Superintendent Des Bray has reassured the public that police will throw all they have at solving these crimes.
    Ms Wilkinson has also been given a personal guarantee that “no stone will be left unturned” as Major Crime detectives look for answers to the abduction of Joanne, 11, and Kirste, 4.

    I hate to say I'm disappointed, but I kind of am. Of course, it would be wonderful of those kids were found alive somewhere after all these years but it's just highly unlikely, IMO. The poor parents, I can't even imagine .

    I think the children are dead,its just a matter of finding their bodies,some sick person sent the mother a letter after the children went missing,it was supposed to have been from Jane but it was a hoax.

    The first letter requested the parents meet the man for a handover of the children, which they did, but no one came to meet them.
    The second letter detailed how the man spotted a detective following the parents and decided to leave.
    In 1981, it was claimed handwriting experts were almost certain one letter was written by Jane.
    The author has since been identified by forensic fingerprinting as a man who had written them as a joke.

    How cruel .

    I think the kids are long dead, too. I really hope their parents get some answers before they pass away.

    So sad. The missing cases from so long ago-with modernism and improved technology, some are being solved, which is good. But for these poor families-no answers. Very sad.

    The parents separated after the children went missing,there would have been a lot of what ifs over the years,its hard to imagine how it must be for them.

    ITA. I read up on this case the other night...all those years of heartache, I can't even fathom what that was like for them, and they are still living with it .

    Just heart breaking,there are still more tips that the police are looking into but who knows where they will lead.
