at how twisted and low people will go sometimes.


Pedophiles Prey on Tsunami Orphans; Boy Missing
Swedish Boy Missing in Thailand

By MATTIAS KAREN
STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) - Swedish and Thai police said Tuesday they were searching for a 12-year-old Swedish boy last seen leaving a hospital in Thailand with an unknown man in the aftermath of the tsunami in south Asia.

A boy matching the description of Kristian Walker was last seen Monday with a German man at a hospital near the resort of Khao Lak but has since vanished, despite a desperate search by his American grandfather, Daniel Walker, family and police said.
The boy was listed as missing by international law enforcement agencies worldwide Tuesday.

Swedish and Thai police said they were searching for the boy, but said they could not confirm media reports that he had been kidnapped.
Two Swedish police officers were assisting in the investigation, National Police spokeswoman Carolina Ekeus said.

Dr. Pisith Yongyuth, director of Taimuang hospital in Phang Nga province, told AP that a German man brought a boy who might be Kristian to the hospital around 1 a.m. on Dec. 27 - the day after the tsunami hit - accompanied by another boy about 8 years old. By late morning, all three left. "We cannot confirm that this boy is really Kristian Walker; we can only say that he seems to be the boy described by his grandfather and media reports,'' Yongyuth said.

While he acknowledged that his son may have already been taken out of Thailand, Dan Walker said he has urged Thai authorities to send Kristian's picture to all border patrols and airports to help prevent him from leaving the country.
The Swedish tabloid Expressen and other media reported on their Web sites or in Tuesday's editions that police were searching for Kristian amid fears he was kidnapped. Expressen said the boy was accompanied at a hospital by a man described by employees as ``European looking, with a moustache and red shirt.''

In the wake of the devastating tsunami, there have been unconfirmed reports of dozens of orphaned children being taken by unidentified people, some of them possibly child traffickers.
Thai Foreign Minister Surakiart Sathirathai said Tuesday the Thai government was working closely with hospitals to prevent human trafficking gangs from taking advantage of the situation, although he stressed that there was no firm indication that they were.
Asked about the possible exploitation of children, U.N. refugee chief Ruud Lubbers told CNN: ``We are prepared for this ill behavior. ... We are cautious.''

This week, the Swedish branch of Save the Children, or Raedda Barnen, warned governments in south Asia to be mindful of children left orphaned or without families in the disaster, saying they could be potential targets for pedophiles."The experience from other catastrophes is that children are particularly vulnerable,'' said Charlotte Petri Gornitzka, managing director of the agency.
Dan Walker said he was fearful that his son may have fallen prey to pedophiles that have been known to gather in Thailand, or child trafficking rings, but he was not sure.
``I can only guess, and you can only guess, what has happened to him,'' Walker told The Associated Press.



Thai Police Lt. Col. Preecha Kraewthanong said they were checking border points to see whether the boy and the man had left.
``We are looking for him to be sure whether he kidnapped the boy or not and the boy was really Kristian Walker or not,'' he said.
Kristian's father said two doctors at the hospital identified his son from photographs that were shown to them by Daniel Walker last week.

Both men had gone to Phuket after the tsunami to search for their family, which was on vacation with Dan Walker's estranged wife, Madeleine, who is still missing. Dan Walker's two other children, David, 14, and Anna, 7, were found and are back home in Sweden with him.
Daniel Walker, a trained paramedic and former U.S. Marine, has remained in Thailand to search for his grandson.

While Kristian's name does not appear in any hospital records, Dan Walker said his father is convinced hospital officials are correct.
``To me, that's enough to keep searching,'' he said.

Dan Walker said Kristian speaks English but it was unclear whether the boy in the hospital had talked to the man he left with. If Kristian did leave willingly with another man, he must have won his trust, Dan Walker said.
``I assume that he wasn't drugged or in a state of shock,'' he said.

Associated Press reporter Sutin Wannabovorn in Bangkok, Thailand, contributed to this report.

I don't mean I'm laughing at because I think it's funny, if that were the case I'd be no better than the pedophile. It made me laugh a laugh of disbelief at how people can be that uttery low.

traffickers prey on the vulnerable, and no one is more vulnerable than the masses of orphaned children left in the wake of the tsunamis...

there are no words to describe how despicable this is. it's hard to maintain faith in humanity when you hear of incidents like these.

Well, there has been a rather lax attitude towards pedophilia in the region before the tsunami, one that would draw child predators to the area.

Now, they prey on the lost and confused.

I heard about this this morning too. I was shocked that someone could be that low as to take an innocent, orphaned child who as already gone through a great ordeal. It's absolutely disturbing that a person can believe it is okay to take a child and sell them into slavery (whichever type that may be). It is sick and twisted.
