The German guy is more of an hero then a kidnapper, he took care of them and found their (or rather remains) of their families. He was a family father and took them to the rest of this family and took care of them while searching for their families. Hes cleared from all charges.

Other cases of this has accoured as you say, but this one had a happy ending though and he had done nothing bad.

Its sickening that people can be so sick and twisted as some are taking advantage of children, or anyone else for that matter!

I certainly agree. For those who misunderstood the situation are ensnarled again by incorrect reporters who jump into conclusions too fast.

Although the this 12 year old case shouldn't be blamed on the reporters or such.
