Teacher, 30, and a schoolgirl, 15, run away together

Megan Stammers, 15, and married man Jeremy Forrest, 30, ran away together on Thursday night, but police speculate the two could have now travelled further into Europe, heading for Dover - and France.
"Megan was last seen on CCTV boarding a cross-Channel ferry with Forrest and British and French police are now desperately searching for them," according to the report:
Engaged in a forbidden love with Stammers, Forrest, a maths teacher, a prolific blogger and a musician must have believed to have been running away together with his student.
In his Twitter account under his stage name as a keen musician, Jeremy Ayre, Forrest wrote: “Let’s run away together. I wanna wake up naked next to you, kissing the curve in your clavicle.”
As a prolific writer, romantic messages flooded on Forrest’s blog which according to report apparently intended for Megan. A relationship which according to Forrest ‘hit him like heroin’ led him to inundate romantic messages to Stammers.
“Girl, I say if only life would lean our way. Well, you and me, we’d run away to be wherever our adventure waits.”
Two weeks later, he posted: ‘I don’t want to be what they want me to be. I only want to be with you.’
In another, he indicated plans for a clandestine meeting, writing: ‘A sign please!!! Is it safe?’ And a few days later, he said: ‘Me & you. Let’s just run away.’
‘I’m sinking like a stone in the sea. I’m burning like a bridge for your body.’ In another, he said: ‘There are some things I’ll live without. But I want you to know that I need you right now. I need you tonight..’
Not oblivious about his clandestine affair with Megan and its associated moral implications, Forrest wrote on his blog.
'I had a bit of a moral dilemma to deal with, both internally and externally. And the overriding question it left me with was this;
How do we, and how should we, define what is right or wrong, acceptable or unacceptable???'
I came to a different conclusions, mainly that actually we get a lot of things wrong, but at the end of the day I was satisfied that if you can look yourself in the mirror and know that, under all the front, that you are a good person, that should have faith in your own judgment. That’s some philosophical gold for you there!!!
However, there was also a hint of anger amidst all these romantic messages shown on Forrest blog on June 22.
‘If anger was a currency, I’d be so ****ing rich right now...’
It therefore turned out Forrest implored Megan to 'do right thing' and influenced her so much to runaway with him.'
It emerged based on a report Megan was receiving free math lesson from Forrest and after-school tuition. The school in Eastbourne was obviously shocked upon hearing this incident.
Jeremy and his wife Emily were having a trial separation, as confirmed by his friend.
Megan’s parents, who by now are uneasy with the situation, coordinated with the authority and hope for the safety of their daughter.
