John Wright, another neighbour, said that he had spoken to police looking for the seven-year-old last night, and told them to search the building site and the schoolboy had previously been warned about playing there.
'Police came round last night asking and my kids told them he might be playing at the construction site,' he said.
'They said they'd looked but not found him. I'm telling you they should have found that bairn last night.
'How can someone not be there then suddenly be there. It's a disgrace.'It's a disgrace, all right, Mr Wright. But not for the reasons you seem to think it is...
Peter Taylor, who said he was a manager at Security Guards UK, said the firm had reported that children were playing on the site.
'Basically we finished there on July 16, we leave warnings signs up as an extra visual deterrent,' he said.
'When we were there we had reported the perimeter was not secure, there were children trying to come on to the site and we were stopping them.
'We were pulled off immediately without any notice, we then reiterated the issues.'
He added: 'If a security guard was on site then he would have spotted it and would have prevented it from happening. We are very sorry for the family's loss.'It's not the construction site company's fault either, nor that of the security firm (who clearly want to be continuously employed, and who can blame them?)..
Another neighbour, who lives opposite Conley and his mother, also said local children had been playing at the building site.
'He's been playing in there for about two weeks now,' she said. 'There used to be 24 hour security and gates there, but they've taken them down.
'He's been going a few times with other boys - I've seen them playing on the diggers.'
Alicia Dalton, who had visited the building site today to lay flowers, said: 'I heard he was playing on the site. Kids will go where they want to go.'If it really does 'take a village' to raise a child, this one's unusually full of idiots, isn't it?
Conley had gone to meet his friends in Locke Park in Barnsley yesterday evening, spending two hours with them before leaving to go home at around 8pm.
But the youngster failed to arrive back home, which is around two miles - a 40 minute walk - from the park, and was reported missing a short while later.Seven. He was seven...
Ms Fraser said her grandson's father was 'not around', but said his mother, Paula Thompson, would be 'devastated' by Conley's death.
'You can't knock Paula as a mum,' she said. 'She's an absolutely ace mum.
'She really tried her best with him, even though she had her tough days with him she was a brilliant mum and she's going to find it really, really hard without him.'
Paying tribute to the little boy, she said she was 'shell-shocked' by his death She added: 'He was always in trouble, he was never out of it but when he came to my house to stay he was as good as gold, really good.'There's poverty in Britain, yes. But it's not the lack of money type...
