Post by Sirajuddin » 01 Dec 2018, 22:45

William Lance the father of Deborah Lance who still doesn't know about the kidnapping of her daughter, but he suspects the involvement of foul play. Why does William Lance think in that way?

Isn't that the first thought that a father will get when his daughter is gone missing??

Father instincts. Some people have that kind of feeling before something bad actually happened. She happened to be the only offspring too, so you can't fault the man that much for being protective of his daughter.

I can't guess why William Lance was thinking that way, maybe due to the reasons that other reviewers have mentioned.

I would chalk it up to "father instincts", though many parents I would assume would be in denial and hope for the best in a lot of cases. It seems like a bit of a leap to think foul play before the disappearance is even established unless there are background reasons for assuming that.

William Lance suspects the involvement of foul play about the kidnapping of his daughter because he was in doubt about her didappearance from the ferry so he thinks in that sense. He wants to find the reason of kidnapp of his daughter Deborah.

It would definitely come into mind when no reason for the kidnap has been known then. I think it is also natural given that no one rarely does something for no reason. Something was behind the kidnap.

I'm not surprised he suspected foul play. For one thing, he saw Debbie drive onto the ferry himself, so it wasn't a question of her not getting on board. Next, they already had an established routine of communicating every so often each day, therefore, her silence, coupled with the call from Debbie's friend, Patty, about never meeting up with her, was enough to raise the foul-play-theory hairs on his back.

What a revelation. It must have sounded weird for him hearing that there was no proof that Debbie had gotten into the ferry yet he saw her driving into it. This is very true.

I was still wondering why William had to stay until Debbie got onto the ferry before leaving. Fatherly instincts must be real. It seems he had sensed something right from the beginning.

I think him staying until Debbie got onto the ferry was more of parental concern than previous suspicions. I know how often my own mum has done so; it gives this sense of assurance that the love one is safe.

I agree. And such a situation is better left imagined. But then again, his reputation and credibility in his home base can play up his chances of being believed by anyone asking whether or not Debbie got onto the ferry.
