Call it a twist of fate, or just plain idiocy. James W. Heselden had recently taken charge of the Segway company – you know, those annoying, two wheeled devices that were supposed to be all the rage, but instead have been adopted only by postal officers and mall cops?

When children go missing, or are kidnapped, the dark truth is that the probability of authorities actually locating the child is not high. Typically, if the child seemed to vanish into thin air, the odds don’t look good. Of course, this depends on a number of variables and factors that might help or hurt the […]
