ⓘ Disappearance of Ames Glover

Ames Glover disappeared on 5 February 1990 at the age of five months from the back seat of his fathers car in west London. No trace of him has ever been found.


1. Disappearance

Amess father Paul Glover reported to police that he had left his son in the back seat of his car in Southall for approximately twenty minutes while he went to a cashpoint followed by a take-away restaurant. On his return he discovered that Ames was missing.


2.1. Police investigations Initial investigation

Over 2.000 people, including both of Amess parents, were interviewed by police investigating his disappearance, but no charges were brought and there were no solid leads on what had happened to him.


2.2. Police investigations Controversy

Police conduct of the case has been criticised at the time and subsequently. Information about Amess family set-up his parents were estranged at the time of his disappearance, and he had been on an "at risk register" was passed to the media by police and it seems likely that this led the case to receive a much lower public profile than other child disappearances around the same time. Ingrained racism in the media and public attitudes has also been implicated: writing about the case in the Independent over two decades after Ames disappeared, Philip Hensher reflected that it is "harder to make a good story out of a missing black child than out of one with blond hair and blue eyes."


2.3. Police investigations Reopening of case

After pressure from Amess mother Shanika Ondaatjie, the case was re-opened in 2002 under the control of Scotland Yards Racial and Violent Crimes Taskforce. In 2003 police officers travelled to Ghana in west Africa after a tip-off that Ames may have been taken there. A reward was offered for information, but enquiries proved fruitless. DNA tests on two young Ghanaian men named in relation to the case were negative. There have been periodic appeals for new information since then but with no significant progress.
