Classmates’ heartbreaking drawings for ‘lovely’ boy, 5, found dead alongside mum

Devastated classmates of a little boy found dead alongside his mother have paid tribute to the "lovely" youngster.

Colourful drawings and messages of love for Jenson Spellman have been tied outside Simmondley Primary School in Glossop where he was a pupil.

One message featuring a sketching of a dinosaur reads: "To Jenson, I hope you like your dinosaur. I will miss you. Love from Isabelle."

The body of the five-year-old was found at a reservoir with mum Emma Sillett, 41, days after they were reported missing.

Post mortem examinations are understood to have been carried out in the last two days, reports Manchester Evening News.


The school gates were this week covered with pictures drawn by youngsters with heartbreaking messages to the "lovely" boy.

Flowers and cards were also pinned to the fence of a nearby playground.

Paying tribute to Jenson a little girl called Lily wrote: “He was lovely.”

“To Emma and Jenson. You were so loved and you will be missed. Love the Millingtons,” said another.

Neighbours of grandma Pauline Spellman also paid tribute to the tragic mum and son.

One, who asked not to be named, said: “They were lovely people. Pauline is a lovely lady and doted on her little grandson.


“She used to take him down to the school and back.

“It’s heartbreaking. We are all heartbroken. He was such a beautiful little boy.

“They are a beautiful family.

“Everybody is desperately unhappy we are so sorry for Pauline.”

Another said: “He grew up so fast, the last time I recall seeing him he was in a pushchair. “It’s a big shock to the whole community.”


The alarm was raised after Ms Sillett and Jenson disappeared on Tuesday.

Derbyshire Police launched an investigation after they went missing from their home in Glossop.

They were last seen in McDonald’s on the A560 Stockport Road in Hattersley.

On Thursday, police said two bodies had been found near Valehouse Reservoir in Tintwistle, Derbyshire.
