I saw Maddie in a supermarket on the Costa del Sol

February 22, 2012 • Andalucia, Lead, Malaga • 0 Comments


The former M&S worker called police after seeing the snatched toddler with 'gypsy' in Spanish supermarket Mercadona


EXCLUSIVE by James Bryce

A BRITISH expat based in Spain is ‘100 per cent sure’ she saw missing Madeleine McCann in a supermarket on the Costa del Sol.

The former M&S sales assistant, 63, is adamant the young girl is the missing Briton after seeing her with a man she describes as looking like ‘a gypsy’.

Yvonne Tunnicliffe, who has lived in Spain for six years, made the sighting while shopping at a Mercadona store in Alhaurin el Grande in 2009.

The grandmother has only now come forward, after reading about increasing suggestion that the toddler might have been snatched by a gypsy gang while on holiday in Portugal in 2007.

“My whole body shook when I saw her, she looked just like her daddy (Gerry),” Tunnicliffe told the Olive Press newspaper.

“I’m certain it was Madeleine, I wouldn’t even say I’m 99 per cent sure, I’m 100 per cent sure.

“She had mousy blonde hair in scruffy plaits, very fair skin and looked about seven or eight, which is how old she would have been now.”

Tunnicliffe contacted police a week after the sighting and was visited by detectives who immediately took her back to the store to view CCTV footage.

But police were informed by the store’s manager that footage was only stored for one week and had subsequently been destroyed.

So convinced was she of the sighting, she was unable to sleep for much of the week and finally drew a number of sketches of both the girl and man for police.

Fighting back tears, she told the Olive Press: “It really upset me and I couldn’t stop thinking about it and why I hadn’t gone to the police straight away.

“It was Christmas and we had friends over. I kept getting sidetracked.”

On the sighting she said: “The girl’s demeanour bothered me. I don’t think she belonged to the man because she didn’t look anything like him.

“He had dark, curly hair down to his neck and was wearing a distinctive bullring-type earring.

“He sounded Portuguese and was certainly not from Alhaurin.”

Tunnicliffe claims the girl – who was wearing a pale blue top and trousers – did not look Spanish.

“It disturbed me for a long time and still upsets me thinking about it now,” an emotional Tunnicliffe added.

When contacted by the Olive Press, a Scotland Yard spokesman confirmed: “It’s an open investigation and any information received will be reviewed and considered by detectives.”

The McCanns’ spokesman was unavailable for comment as we went to press.

Timing is interesting. Spinning in the wind!

Is something about to happen? What are they countering this time?

Classic this bit big grin

I’m certain it was Madeleine, I wouldn’t even say I’m 99 per cent sure, I’m 100 per cent sure.

“She had mousy blonde hair in scruffy plaits, very fair skin and looked about seven or eight, which is how old she would have been now.”



Err, she made the sighting in 2009 - Maddie would have been 6!! What a load of codswallop.

the Olive Press who got to PdL on the 4th of May in record time, or were they there already?
Somewhat shady outfit imo.

Candyfloss, I've just seen yours now.

Since mine is duplicate why not just delete the whole thread to avoid confusion.

This woman coming forward now, nearly three-years after the sighting. Christ on a bike. What's next from team mccanns?
At this rate, team mccanns might eventually come up with another belated witness who saw the abductor taking Maddie away on May3rd but didnt come forward until it is deemed right time to spin that.

The only thing interesting about this drivel is this line:

The McCanns’ spokesman was unavailable for comment as we went to press.

This woman sees a little girl with a swarthy gypsy man in the supermarket. So she is not being kept a prisoner is she? Yet she is paled skinned still after nearly 5 years. She would be more tanned by now. Incidentaly there are no gypsy areas near this particular town, I live quite near to this part ofMalaga and the gypsy areas are further east than the town of Alhurin and really no reason for any gypsy folk to go to what has become a little England. YUK.

The McCanns desperately spinning...in the air! The review may be coming to an end, they are desperate to spin that Madeleine was alive and abducted.

Yes, desperately being the operative word perhaps. It will be interesting to see whether the spokesperson becomes available to comment and whether it makes the English tabloids.

Read on the other site that the Yard has started the "interview". Could it explain the reason for this spin

Anyhow, this is at par with Leh's sighting.? big grin

Could this be a link- Olive Press, Manchester, ITALIAN restaurant advertises on line pages. filights , hotels, travel etc.

Manchester is not that far down a fast motorway from Liverpool.

Then there was that sighting reported by Wright to the police stated. An ITALIAN PIZZA worker on early morning shift saw a man and woman with a child on the Lagos Mariana area.

I assume we can ignore that other sighting Kate allegedly reported to Police DC75 Markley of Leicestershire police, who wrote on spare sheet paper that Kate's Aunt and Uncle's friend a psychic, had a vision of Maddie on a boat in Lagos Marina with two men and how they had also gone there to check it out and the psychic could not identify the guy.

Psychic Amanda Hart told us she was on the Madeleine case, she also blogged, peace had come to Madeleine at last when police were searching an abadoned barn near Praia da Luz, her blog was posted June 13th 2007.

Don't tell me it took 3 YEARS to get over the shock of seeing an eight year old girl (or six years - just pick a number under 10 and run with it), who looked like a 42 yr old Glaswegan man. Complete nonsense of course, because the age progression guy thought Madeleine looked more like Kate overall. And if you started to shake because you were so sure, why do nothing about it? What a numpty. As has been mentioned these sightings to conveniently emerge when new holes get picked in the "story".

This report is a joke and a complete fabrication.....If you saw a girl you thought was Maddie (and lets not forget she is nearly 8 now and we can only guess what she may look like)....would it take 2 whole years to come forward...LOL LOL LOL ....Pull the other one mitchell, you falling asleep again!

Btw the image they released of an older looking Maddie they nicked from an art show in Ireland!!!

I read it that she came forward a week later, went to the Police and they took her to the shop to look at the CCTV & it had been wiped.

So she did report it - late, but not by two/three years! But this is such an old story, why bother wasting the print on it?

ETA She reckons she saw her in 2009, if I'm not going mad.

Hi Christina, welcome to the forum

]“My whole body shook when I saw her, she looked just like her daddy (Gerry),” Tunnicliffe told the Olive Press newspaper.n it was Madeleine, I wouldn’t even say I’m 99 per cent sure, I’m 100 per cent sure.

“She had mousy blonde hair in scruffy plaits, very fair skin and looked about seven or eight, which is how old she would have been now.”

[color=darkred][b]Tunnicliffe contacted police a week after the sighting
and was visited by detectives who immediately took her back to the store to view CCTV footage


So her whole body shook when she saw her, but then she waited a week to tell police........... never mind

Actually, I'm starting to wonder if it's one of the Metodo 3 eight 'important leads' that were 'collected' by SY when they visited. It's in Spain, after all.

Hi Candyfloss & thank you!

Yes, I cringed when I read the whole thing. Barrel-scraping, I fear! But I still wonder why now.
