The story begins in Newcastle on 15th October, 1936.
It was a warm spring afternoon in the city of Newcastle Australia. Pedestrians and traffic were traveling past the Post Office and adjacent Police Station.
Over the noise, a young woman shouted instructions to an infant boy standing on the Post Office steps. "Now, sit down here", she pointed with her finger, "and don't move", "just stay there". Obediently the child sat on the steps. He looked up to her, bewilderment on his face as he watched the young woman disappear into the passing crowd.
The boy was two years old, with olive skin, brown eyes and neatly dressed in white shorts and shirt. He wore white socks and red shoes. His feet reached to just below where he was sitting.
The story gives account to the distress the boy encountered from those moments. Not one of his family returned to claim or help the young boy. It was soon apparent the young boy could not speak. The Police department and child welfare tried endlessly to locate the missing child's parents without success. The newspapers and radio covered the story very closely for many weeks. Where were the boys family?
The only clear information was that the young boy was in exceptional health and very well dressed.
