For some reason this memory came to me whilst watching a program about "The Moors Murders". I can remember that their was a child kidnap in Hayes about the same time.
I suppose I remembered it more because he was in the cubs as I was at the time and for some weird reason I wrote his name on an old pen case.
Anyway I remembered his name - Billy Holloway.
So I recently googled "Billy Holloway missing"

And found this as the only link

That's amazing. One possibility is the bottom of Charville Lane. Do you know if he was found?

I know this is 3 years on since posted but I have only just read it when searching for information myself. Do you know anything more?

I've just done a search and there are several results: the photo posted above (including the front of it), the script of what appears to be a radio news item at the time and also a link to a television film report, which mistakenly says it's Hayes in Kent.
