Family Law Week: Mr Justice Williams makes appeal for return of Olly Sheridan

Family Law Week: Mr Justice Williams makes appeal for return of Olly Sheridan | Children In Law | Scoop.it
Home > News Mr Justice Williams makes appeal for return of Olly Sheridan The High Court has considered the case of a toddler, Olly Sheridan, who has now been missing with his mum, Ellie Yarrow-Sanders, for more than six months. The judge, Mr Justice Williams, said that he was gravely concerned that a child had been missing for so long and has made an appeal directly to Ellie to bring him back, promising to deal with her case fairly.  The judge has appointed a senior social worker to act in the case to seek to promote Olly's welfare, making it clear that this does not mean that there is any chance of Olly being placed in foster care. Such are his concerns for Ellie and Olly's welfare, Olly's father, Patrick Sheridan, who wants only the return of his son, has agreed that if Olly is brought back by his mother before the next hearing, then he will not ask for Ellie or her mother, Donna, or sister, Maddie, to be punished for having any part in Olly's disappearance. Ellie's mother and sister, who were both present at court and who spoke to the judge, fully support the judge's appeal and are also urging Ellie to bring Olly back and to have confidence in the court process. In a joint statement, Patrick, Donna and Maddie said: "We just want to know that Olly is safe and we plead for Ellie to return home as soon as possible.  We all agree that Olly needs to come home to his normal life surrounded by family and friends." Any member of the public with any information which might help to find Olly is asked to contact Essex police on telephone number 101. 3/2/19
