Australian Ken Thompson cycles Europe in desperate search for his son
By Miles Godfrey

- Mum flees country with son
- Dad on three-month cycle to find them
- Mother is suffering mental illness

Australian Ken Thompson has spent every day for three months cycling through Europe, looking for his son.

But there is no telling where, when, how or even if his remarkable journey will end.

He says, quite frankly, he doesn't care if it takes the rest of his life, just as long as he finds his little boy.

He has cycled through over half a dozen countries in his desperate search to find his missing son.

Mr Thompson's story is one of love, betrayal, physical determination and weight loss so drastic his jeans once fell down in the middle of a Luxembourg street.

But it also raises a more fundamental question: How far would any of us go to help a loved one?

It is a question the relatives of Australia's 1600 long-term missing persons ask themselves every day.

Some agonise over ways to shed new light on cases which the police have long ago failed to solve -  some set up Facebook pages, distribute leaflets, travel vast distances to investigate possible sightings.

Ken has featured extensivly on the news pages here. We first published this story in 2008 and have been reporting extensive coverage of his bicycling mission throughout Europe to find his son Andrew. Search the news gallery for "Ken Thompson".
