MADELEINE MCCANN: IS THIS THE MAN WHO SNATCHED HER?





Sunday May 16,2010

By James Murray


THIS is the sensational picture of a suspicious
man on the beach which could lead to a breakthrough in the disappearance
of Madeleine McCann.

Snapped inadvertently in the background of a
holiday photo, the mysterious man strolls along after a rain shower,
staring out to sea at Praia da Luz.
The picture was taken at the Portuguese resort days
before Madeleine,
then three, vanished during the evening of May 3, 2007.

Briton Gail Cooper was having lunch with
family and friends in a beachside cafe and taking photos when she saw
him wandering along the beach, apparently in a world of his own.

“It was odd to see him walking
around the beach alone in showery, cold weather.” she said.

Mrs Cooper, 53, added that a few hours
after the snap was taken, the same man visited her at her rented villa
20 minutes’ walk from the beach. The £2million holiday property was in a
quiet road near the Mark Warner complex where Madeleine and her family
were staying.
During a tense
conversation on the doorstep, the man sought cash with what she called
“an obviously made-up story” that he was collecting money for an
orphanage in a nearby town, where the children of Britons killed in a
car crash were being cared for.
Just under a week after the unnerving encounter, when
Mrs Cooper had returned home to Britain, Madeleine was taken from her
holiday apartment.
Alarmed,
Mrs Cooper contacted British detectives because of her ­concerns about
the man on the beach and handed over the photograph, taken by a ­member
of her holiday party.
Months
later private investigators working for Madeleine’s parents Kate and
Gerry McCann asked Mrs Cooper to work with an FBI-trained artist to
create a drawing of the man she had seen at the beach and villa.

Wasn't the lady who took this photo with a throwaway camera a relative of Gail Cooper who was on holiday with her?

Gail Cooper made her statement to the UK police on the 21st May 2007. The same day the Times newspaper carried an article asking holidaymakers in PDL around the time Madeleine disappeared to check their holiday photographs.

Has it really taken 3 years to join up the dots ?

Extract from the Daily Express article.


Briton Gail Cooper was having lunch with
family and friends in a
beachside cafe and taking photos when she saw

“It

weather.” she said.

Fuzzyman doesn't seem to be walking along/around a beach to me. He looks to be possibly on a promenade. What is strange about someone walking on a road/promenade in the rain? Couldn't he be going to or returning from his own lunch ?

Sorry, I got so carried away with Fuzzyman I only copied half the article !!!

part 2


She described him as having protruding teeth, a
handlebar moustache and wind-blown dark hair. In the photo the man is
­turning slightly towards the sea, so it is not possible to tell whether
he has a moustache.
However,
he does appear to bear a resemblance to a man the McCanns’ friend, Jane
Tanner, saw walking with a child in his arms at about the time
Madeleine disappeared.
Ms
Tanner saw him crossing a road yards from the McCanns’ apartment and it
is widely believed that he was the man who abducted Madeleine. She also
worked with an artist to ­create a drawing of the man she saw. It did
not include facial features as she did not see his face.

The man Ms Tanner saw, ­walking in the
glare of an orange street light, was wearing light coloured trousers and
a dark top and appears to have slightly hunched shoulders.

The man in the photo was also wearing
light coloured trousers, a dark top and appears to have slightly rounded
shoulders.
Mrs Cooper, of
Newark, Nottinghamshire, said last night: “I am 98 per cent certain the
man in the photo was the same man who made the strange visit to our
­holiday villa. His hair looks neater in the photo, but he is quite far
in the background.” The picture was given to detectives in
Leicestershire who are liaising with detectives in ­Portugal, but Mrs
Cooper said she was never told whether the man had been identified.

“I believe it would be useful
for the investigation if he was to come forward,” she added. Kate and
Gerry McCann, of Rothley, Leicestershire, are hoping that new Tory Home
Secretary Theresa May will call for a review of all the evidence in the
case.
If you can identify the man in the photograph please
call the Sunday Express on 0208 612 7073 or contact the website
­Findmadeleine.com.

re the bit about a review, why are the McCanns hoping Theresa May will order a review? What happened to the West Yorkshire police review ?

Just managed to find these 2 photographs of the Paraiso Restaurant. Given that Gail Cooper was supposed to be inside the restaurant having lunch when Fuzzyman was photographed, I cannot work out where that little wall between the suspect and the sea could be.

Judging by the angle that Gerry...sorry the 'abductor' is walking, he's either pissed or it's a very windy day.

It's so like Gerry the Express are surely doing another piss take although Ed Milliband is also worthy of a mention.

Having slept on this I have to say I can now see a strong resemblance between the two Cooperman images provided by Gail Cooper.

Yes, they are definitely the same man.

Oh dear, what to make of the rehash.

Always the same nonsense from the mccanns.

Just hope a break through comes in soon. I'm sicked to death of their antics.

How does wandering on the beach in the drizzle make one a weirdo? I do it when by the coast, it is very refreshing. And I often sit and watch children (not just my own) play, it's nice and takes me back to my childhood.

Remember that day we had last summer when there were lots of thunderstorms?
I was at Cleethorpes in that lot. Didn't bother me one bit, because I love storms.
OH wasn't too enamoured though, especially the journey home, having to drive through rivers where there used to be roads.

Why on earth anyone who loves the wilder elements of the weather should be fixated upon by Gail Cooper is anyone's guess. But she has lost a ton of weight since her first public appearance and I've more than a suspicion that our Gail just loves being in the meeeeja and will gladly follow any journalist and camera crew to PdL given that they're paying for it.


Re the latest version of Cooperman and his strange gait -- that's just Gerry doing his Marcel Marceau impression. He is multi-talented, doncha know!

I wonder if Gail Cooper spent any time on the Algarve last winter. If so she must have been a nervous wreck as it rained most days from November to February. It was too windy to use an umbrella so we had little option other than to walk around in the rain.

Perhaps images of myself and husband are at this moment residing in a disposable camera waiting to be produced as the next lot of suspects

Sorry if we made your blood run cold Gail. It was unintentional
