THE father of Genette Tate, the 13 year-old girl who disappeared from an Aylesbeare road in 1978 in Britain's longest-standing missing person case, has spoken of his dying wish to give his daughter a burial.Now, in the week of the 30th anniversary of her disappearance, the Criminal Prosecution Service has said the prime suspect in the hunt for her probable killer will not face charges.In a recent interview Genette's father John Tate described the news as a 'heartbreaking' blow. The 66 year-old spoke of his refusal to fully accept she was murdered, despite common sense telling him otherwise. Mr Tate, now terminally ill, had said he hoped her abductor would reveal where his daughter was.Last year police linked convicted child killer Robert Black to the case, but charges will not be brought. Mr Tate had written to him in prison to ask for a meeting, but never received a reply.
