Holy Crap. If this is true then Betty Day should be flogged and thrown in a dark cell to never see the light of day again. Although, it troubles me that her mother is all of a sudden getting a conscience. why now? And that means fraud too. Poor Bill. While I would love it if Christophe were alive because of how much his father loved him, the implications if he were alive all this time stagger me.

I got a kick out of the soccer picture where the coach wasnt in it but she was.

Most narcissistic bitch on the planet.

This obviously doesn't make much sense as it takes a heck of a lot of anger or some type of motivation to change your child's identity and constantly move them from place to place to prevent them from having contact with their father. So I don't know what Betty Day's motivation was but I certainly wish we had a clearer picture of this case in that regard.

Also Bill's methods of finding his son to me seemed very bizarre. I mean I have no doubt he was well intentioned but if he had an idea that his son was going to be visiting his ex mother in law's home on a certain date, why didn't he inform the authorities of that fact and have them attempt to bring his son into protective custody?

Also the stuff with the soccer coach was equally bizarre. It was never explained as to why this coach wouldn't help Bill locate his son. From the way it was presented in the segment it seemed as if she may have had information regarding Christophe. If so why wasn't she questioned by the authorities?

Which brings me back to my basic question of where were the authorities in all of this? It just seems to me as if this segment takes on the tone of one man's vigilante quest to find his son (digging through garbage bins, contacting his ex-wife through third parties etc.) instead of being a proper investigation of a child abduction by a non-custodial parent. The whole segment just has a very bizarre tone to it.

Edit: I just re-watched the segment again. I'm really starting to wonder whether or not Betty Day had sole custody of her son with Bill just getting visitation rights? If so I wonder if this would've caused any legal complications regarding her flight with Christophe. It's mentioned at some point that Bill was granted custody of their son Christophe but this was after Betty and Christophe had fled. In fact, according to the update Bill never did serve his wife with his custody papers which resulted in her basically being able to walk away from this whole ordeal scott free. Basically I'm really wondering what the original custody arrangement was? Did Betty indeed have sole custody of Christophe? If so why wasn't a joint custody arrangement explored during the divorce proceedings? Again just seems like they left a lot of information out of this segment.
This case has always bothered me but you are bringing up some good points. UM did leave out to much info...

Lindsay, I hope you and your dad find Christophe!
Any updates on this? It is really possible that Christophe Day is alive and well in France?

I really doubt that he is alive. I think Bill Day shouldíve involved authorities when he was trying to find his son. If he had, his ex wife would have had to give up Christoph like it or not. Iím not blaming him in any way but his search for his son would have been easier if he had the help from LE. I guess when youíre in a situation like that you are desperate and just want to do whatever it takes.

As great as that would be, I highly doubt it. I'm sure by now Bill would have figured out the sham. He probably wanted to go put flowers on his son's resting place and go see the grave to believe it and pay tribute to his son. I know we can't know the particulars, but I despise Betty Day. As soon as her son contracted leukemia, which is such a deadly form of cancer, she should have contacted Bill or something. Not waited until he died. We can't know how she treated her son or anything like that and she probably hurts very much from his passing as well. But to deny a father the right to see his dying son one more time is sickening.

Not to mention the fact that if he needed a bone marrow transplant, a relative is the most likely place to find a match, so she should have contacted him for that.

Default Ok this is weird

I decided to search Fb and see if there was a Christophe Day listed. And guess what? There is one listed in France!!! I believe he is about the right age but since I cannot read French and the schools he has graduated from our French i am not sure if they are colleges or what The dates are 2005,2007 and 2008. he would be about 35 now I think. There is a picture but I cannot figure out how to attach it. https://www.facebook.com/christophe....2327158227%3A8

I am not sure if it is him or not. his hair is lighter but that really doesn't say it's not him. The picture of him as a boy on the Unsolved Mysteries wiki is a bit blurry and from a different angle but I am having a hard time getting past the name and France connection. What do you guys think?

So are you saying he could be alive? This was one of the most sad segments. I remember the first time I watched it with my wife in 2003 and right after the update confirmed he was dead it was very sad because you could see the hope and love in the fathers eyes.

There is apparently that possibility based a a previous post. His stepsister post on a video on the forbidden site that they are not sure he is dead and that his Mother may have lied

Lycees are basically senior high schools. 15-18. But, they can also be the equivalent of US vo-tech schools. And in fact, the one he has listed in 2007 and 2008 IS a vo-tech type school. If his education was stalled by leukemia or other things, I could see him going back to get some sort of tech degree at that age.

On the other hand, I had a friend whose Facebook name used to be Nicole Simpson with a picture of Nicole Brown Simpson. Some people are just weird and do things like that.

If he is alive, I don't think he'd be using his real name on Facebook, not after going by so many different aliases for years and years after his mother took him into hiding. If he and Betty wanted Bill to continue thinking he was dead, putting his profile with real name online would be beyond stupid.

I wish Bill's step daughter would return here and tell us whatever became of their second trip to France. I've wrestled with the thought of whether Betty lied to Bill that Christophe had actually died and the concept is so disgusting, it totally sounds like something she would do. So I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility.

Either way, I find Betty to be pure evil. If she lied about Christophe's death, that cruelty goes without saying in regards to Bill. If she told the truth, she still made no effort to contact Bill and tell him that their son had died, not even after a year and nearly a decade of hiding him.

Oh I agree she is evil. Whether Christohphe is a live and she lied or she let him die without ever reuniting him and his dad she is an evil; lady. I really didn't think the FB was him but it was quite a coincidence huh? I too had hoped the stepsister would have been back to let us know what they found out. This is just a very sad case

I don't remember a lot about this segment except for a few scenes of the father doing his own surveillance and investigating.

If Christophe really did die in France, couldn't his father contact the health department or whatever agency handles such things, and obtain a copy of the death certificate?
