Suns boosted by missing girl’s safe return

AFL: The mood in the Gold Coast Suns’ gym lifted perceptibly on Monday when news broke that missing five-year-old Jocelyn Lewis had been found safe and well.

Earlier, the Suns had skipped training to join the hunt for the girl after teammate David Swallow suggested they should help out.

“It was a no-brainer really,” Swallow’s teammate Steven May said yesterday.

“A girl had gone missing in our vicinity. We pride ourselves on being a community-based club and that’s the culture we’re trying to breed here.”

May said the mood was sombre when the players returned to their training complex.

“We were still pretty devastated because no one had found her and then we got the news (she had been found) and it obviously lightened up the gym and the boys finished the day off well,” he said.
