15: ABANDONED: The Mystery Of The Barcelona Railway Kids

This week on Eavesdroppin’, hosts Geordie & Michelle have a mystery to unravel, but before they delve deep, the pair discuss Aussie bird noises, some new theories about the Calvine UFO incident and some facts about the crucifix on Mars, courtesy of our resident science nerd, Neil The Scientist! Thanks, Neil!!

But the question we’re asking this week is, who would abandon three children under 5 in a train station in Barcelona? Well, someone did and this week Geordie looks into the 40-year-old true-life story of the missing Barcelona Railway Kids. In 1984, Elvira, Ricard and Ramón, dressed in designer clothes, were left to wait at a Barcelona train station while their driver went off to fetch them some sweets. Hours later, worried railway workers realised the three young children had been abandoned and the trio were handed over to the police, who at the time weren’t too worried – surely someone would come forward to claim the children? But they didn’t – no one was looking for these children. So why were the children abandoned? What happened to their parents? Who was the man in the fancy car that dropped them at the station? And why, for 40 years, has no one ever come looking for the children, who now have families of their own? Listen to hear more about this gripping story – and the new developments in the case from the past few months!

We hope you enjoy this week’s episode and remember, wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
