The Boy in the Blue Cap: The Gerard Ross Story — Part Two: The Nightmare (Rated PG)

By nightfall on that eerie spring day in 1997 the gravity of Gerard’s disappearance was clear.

More than 90 police and SES volunteers — on horseback, bike and foot — scoured Rockingham’s bushland and beaches in vain.

His mother Cyrese made an emotional television plea: “Gerard, if you can see this, just know that we love you and don’t lose hope”.
