'IT COULD HAVE BEEN ME' Chilling echoes of Madeleine McCann as mum tells how an intruder tried to snatch her from her cot at Portugal resort

[size=36]'IT COULD HAVE BEEN ME' Chilling echoes of Madeleine McCann as mum tells how an intruder tried to snatch her from her cot at Portugal resort[/size]

Nicole Shuttleworth was aged three when her parents foiled Algarve kidnapper 13 years before McCann case

A WOMAN who was saved from a child snatcher in Portugal 13 years before Madeleine McCann went missing has revealed: “It could easily have been me.”
Nicole Shuttleworth, 25, was just three years old when her mum woke to see a dark intruder reaching into her cot in their Algarve hotel room.

Nicole Shuttleworth bore a striking resemblance to Madeleine McCann aged three
Her case has chilling echoes of Madeleine, who was also three when she vanished from her parents’ holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in May 2007.
Nine years on, Madeleine is still missing and the police seem no closer to serving the mystery.
But in 1994, Nicole was holidaying with her cleaner mum Lilian and painter decorator dad Stephen in Albufeira, 45 minutes away from Praia Da Luz.

An intruder tried to grab Nicole Shuttleworth from her cot in an Algarve resort 45 minutes from Praia da Luz in 1994

Nicole was on a family holiday in Albufeira when the intruder sneaked into their hotel room
Photos show the blonde youngster bore a striking resemblance to Madeleine at the time the pervert tried to snatch her.
One night Lilian, now 53, woke up to a dark male figure standing over Nicole’s cot reaching in to grab her.
Lilian let out a “blood-curdling scream” which woke her husband Stephen, now 58, who chased the intruder off.
As there was no sign of a break in, the family believed the would-be abductor used hotel keys to enter their room – something the hotel denied.

The shaken family moved to another hotel that day as they could not bear to stay in the room after what happened.
In 2007, when the family heard of the devastating news of Madeline McCann, they got in touch with investigators to offer up information in case there was a link with their experience.
Incredibly, despite contacting them twice they only got a call back eight years later.
Today Nicole is a mum herself to son Charlie, 15 months, and wants to share her story to warn other parents.
Nicole said: “I remember snippets, but my mum and dad filled me in.
“We shudder at the thought of what might have happened had my mum never woken up.

Nicole Shuttleworth wants to warn other parents to be vigilant
“As a mum, to wake up to an empty cot would be agonising.
“A dark figure was watching over my cot and reaching in touching me. My mum let out a blood curdling scream and woke my dad who chased them away.
“When news broke about Maddie we were all in shock. We wanted to offer as much info as we could.
“We were so surprised no one contacted us back, we only received a call back eight years later.
“My heart goes out to the McCanns. It is a lot to go through for any family, but their result was a lot more devastating than ours.
“People must be aware of the dangers that are there home or away. We must look out and after our children.
“I am so blessed that I am here to share this horror story.”
In April, Scotland Yard said its £11m Operation Grange probe into Madeleine’s disappearance would end within months as detectives have run out of leads to follow.

Maybe this is where Kate and Gerry got the idea to claim "abduction"...

I wonder 'which' will 'run out' first?

The Scum's 'summer holiday' erm, 'supply' of 'stories' OR OG's taxpayer 'money'!

Never 'seem' to be WINTER 'stories' of kids, NEARLY being 'snatched', from their ski 'chalets'!

-----------------------------

Really, REALLY?

Are the Scum 'inviting' us to 'compare' between the two?

IMO, Nicole is 'prettier'!

There, I've said it!

jta:  'comparison': So KM 'saw' a dark 'intruder' reaching into Madeleine's 'bed' in her holiday apartment, did she?

First i have 'heard' of 'that'! winkwink

No one contacted them!!!!  For eight years!!! 

At least they got a call back in the end. Remember the hotline set up for the McCanns by Halligen?  Loads of people ringing in with information as requested - maybe with that small piece of the jigsaw Kate kept banging on about. And... shock, horror!! Not one person got a return call. And what's more, the duo never queried why there were no calls being forwarded to them.

Dear Sun journalist,
 Please rearrange the following words into a well known phrase or saying without burning out your one remaining brain cell:

Not morning this we were born all

As a young family, we had many Euro holidays. TheAlgarve (25 years ago) was the only place where a rep warned our group about  night time burglaries. On the 3rd night a woman  had her handbag stolen whilst she was in bed. There was no special warnings about abductions. The rep blamed it on "gypsies".

OMG that's dreadful,does an intruder/ potential abductor have time to watch over their victim? or do they just snatch them and run? them there potential abductors have have missed there vocation in life cos they run away that fast that not one of these parents have ever been able to catch them,they would be awash with gold medals if they had competed in the olympics and 2007 she would of been just 16 years old what a load of POPPYCOCK CLARENCE.

No doubt Nicole Shuttleworth's alive today because her parents hadn't left her alone to go out on the lash.

No doubt she's still alive today cos her story probably did't happen the way she said it did? a bit like Kate's son asking his mum if it was true what he heard on the school bus.

Any relation to Ed Smethursts' friend and guardian, Alvin Shuttleworth? Funny how this story should suddenly emerge now, it probably hasn't see the light of day before.  I wonder if it really happened or is it just another story that the media have bought?

The photograph used to claim a resemblance to Madeleine is a bit too much of a co-incidence IMO, especially as this is supposed to have happened 13yrs before. 

Talking of coincidences and likeness, I googled this woman and found this picture somehow (but I don't know how) associated with her

Wonder why/how the story has been brought up now?
Feels a bit close to the bottom of the barrel.

22 years ago?? This is bizarre, even for the Sun.  The question has to be asked. Why?

I suppose the papers are so full of the E.U referendum , football  they've got to find a way of keeping their name out there ?

After all the "fund " is getting low and they might have to pay a few court costs so they cannot really afford to fork out another £500,000 to keep their names on the front pages any more can they  big grin

This story will get hidden amongst all the eu news so what's the point of it?

Maybe it has something to do with the bad press Justice Hogg is getting at the moment and her link to Madeleine McCann.  Distraction? Maybe they don't want people comparing Ellie's parents on the This Morning programme to Gerry and Kate?

For me this is the most telling part of the whole article, and one I know our British investigative journalists will thoroughly explore...
