When some people go missing, they don’t want to be found.
In the Daily Mail article on this story it was reported that even Buster the family dog is grieving over the disappearance of his mum, Aine.
The thing is that it appears she wanted to go missing.
A MUM who told her family she was ducking to Tesco was last seen getting on a flight from Belfast to London with a mystery man, it has emerged.
Aine Poynton, who was due to celebrate her 25th wedding anniversary with her husband next August, left her home more than two weeks ago – and has not been seen by her family since.
The 49-year-old told her adult children she was going to do some shopping at the Tesco near her home in Kilcock, Co Kildare in Ireland on February 22 but never returned – with her car found abandoned the next day.
Police are now helping the family with the search, with it yesterday emerging that she was spotted getting on a flight from Belfast to London’s Gatwick airport with a mystery man.
Her family is now desperately appealing for their wife and mother to contact them.
Husband Paul Poynton told The Irish Mirror: “We just want her to know that we all love her and miss her and want her home.
“All of us are desperately worried about her because this is not like her.”
The couple have been together almost 30 years.
Usually spoken about men, the phrase “There’s no fool like an old fool” comes to mind here.
When Aine’s new love doesn’t work out, will her husband and children take her back, while ignoring her irresponsible behavior? At least her children are adults who presumably don’t need mothering.
The family dog Buster will excitedly greet her with furious tail wagging. Her husband and children? I know I wouldn’t pretend like nothing happened if she tried to come back to me.
Am I wrong?
