Police are investigating reported sighting of Madeleine McCann in Nerja

Police are investigating reported sighting of Madeleine McCann in Nerja

By h.b. - Apr 17, 2012 - 10:13 AM

The request to investigate has come from Portuguese police


The police are investigating a clue which puts Madeleine McCann in Nerja. The Judicial Police Commissioner-General received the request to verify the information from the Portuguese authorities.
Diario Sur reports it’s understood the request came by e-mail and arrived some ten days ago.

Portuguese investigators received the Nerja clue and they want to confirm it with the Spanish colleagues. A witness said they saw a girl who looked by Madeline in Nerja.

Madeleine McCann has been missing since May 2007 and since then there have been many sightings of her across Spain, although this is the first time the Costa del Sol has been mentioned.

if anything comes of this it will be wonderful news, however the timing coming close to the 5th anniversay of the disappearance and the paperback version of the book makes me very cynical I am afraid.

Another 'Sighting' Ahead Of Madeleine Anniversary


Martin Brunt
April 17, 2012 9:50 AM



I guess we can expect more of this as the fifth anniversary of Madeleine McCann's disappearance approaches.

Spanish police are investigating a report from their Portuguese colleagues that a girl fitting Madeleine's description is living in Nerja near Malaga.

The information was provided by someone living nearby the girl.

Apparently, Spanish police involved in tracing missing people have three such potential sightings a month.

But who knows where this might possibly lead?

The news comes after Portuguese police began a review of the case, which was initially abandoned 15 months after Madeleine vanished in May 2007.

You really do have to laugh at these - or you would if the whole story wasn't so tragic.

My sister-in-law who still lives in Spain has twice claimed to us that she's seen a girl the spit of Maddie. It's 5 years folks and certainly in Nerja I would imagine, given the brits and germans that live there, quite a few girls would be around with a passing resemblance to Maddie.

Police search for Madeleine McCann in town near Malaga after 'lookalike' is spotted

'Informant' tips off police about Maddie sighting in Malaga

New squad brought in to re-examine case

PUBLISHED: 13:00, 17 April 2012 | UPDATED: 14:22, 17 April 2012

Search continues: Portuguese police are understood to have received information from an informant about a Madeleine McCann lookalike spotted in the town of Nerja near Malaga in Spain
The Madeleine McCann mystery took a new twist today as it emerged that Spanish police are looking for the missing girl in a Costa del Sol holiday resort
Detectives are making inquiries in Nerja after a tip-off from colleagues in Portugal.
Portuguese police are understood to have received information from an informant about a Madeleine McCann lookalike spotted in the town near Malaga.

Officers from a specialist unit are said to have been mobilised after being sent details of the sighting.

The development is thought to be connected to a new review of Madeleine McCann's disappearance.

A new squad of officers has been brought in to re-examine the case.

The team, from the northern city of Porto, has been instructed to go over the thousands of pages of case files and search for new clues.

THE SEARCH FOR MADDIE
2007 - May 3: Madeleine vanishes from holiday apartment in Praia da Luz.
August 21: Madeleine allegedly spotted with a man in Cartagena, Spain.

November 16: Jane Tanner says she saw a man carrying a sleeping child away 45 minutes before McCanns discovered Madeleine missing

February 13, 2008: Portuguese authorities say search for Madeleine is winding down
May 7, 2009: Channel 4 film shows artist’s impression of man seen at the apartment
November 2010: Businessman reports seeing girl matching Maddie's description with a man and two women outside shopping mall in Dubai.

February 2011: Italian ­nightclub bouncer claims Madeleine was snatched and taken to the US by a paedophile gang responsible for a dozen similar child kidnappings
May 9, 2011: Two British paedophiles quizzed by police ­investigating investigating disappearance
July 29, 2011: DNA test taken from girl in India after British woman believes it's Maddie

March 2012: Maddie 'lookalike' is spotted in Costa del Sol, Spain
The officers are working with a Scotland Yard team set up in May last year to review the investigation into Madeleine's May 2007 disappearance from the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz.

Ray of hope? Five years on police in Portugal will pore over thousands of case files in new search for Madeleine McCann
Met Police review of Madeleine McCann abduction will have cost taxpayer £2m in a year

Respected Malaga-based daily Diario Sur said the fresh inquiries in Spain were being carried out by officers from the Judicial Police's Central Specialised and Violent Crime Unit.

Officers from the specialist police division are currently searching for two siblings who disappeared in a park in Cordoba, southern Spain on October 8.

The youngsters' dad Jose Breton was arrested over their disappearance and is being held in prison.

Police have failed to find any trace of Ruth, six, and Jose, two, despite several searches of a family home with radar equipment.

The McCanns' Portuguese lawyer Rogerio Alves has described the Portuguese police case review as a 'very postive sign'.

He said when news emerged of the creation of the new team: 'Obviously the most plausible explanation for what's happening is that information passed to or acquired by the Judicial Police in Porto has put them on the trail of something specific.'

I see an informant in inverted commas too big grin

Wasn't the Bouncer informant story from Spain, and the Victoria Beckham lookalike? Might be wrong, so many stories about sightings spin

So predictable and so very tedious.
However, a couple of comments in the Mail online were interesting (I've put in red);

If this is true then maybe they should not disclose these details to the press - for Madelines safety....the kidnappers may panic....please God keep her safe if she still is with us.

Unlikely that a "lookalike" would be Madeleine as who knows what she looks like now. Furthermore, Marbella - a bit close to the abduction unless the perpetrators are daft as well as evil. Still, I hope there may be peace and closure for the McCanns.

Oh for goodness sake, DM, stop this reporting of every 'sighting' of the child. In the event that one day the sighting turns out to be correct and not yet another of the many wild-goose chases, all you are doing is giving any abductor a tip-off to keep out of public view and then to move on. (Not that I subscribe to the belief that abduction is the only explanation to the child's disappearance) The ONLY time I want to see a further article on this case is when you report that she has been found or that DEFINITE evidence has led to the case being concluded. What happened to the this child was terrible and you disgust me that you use her image to sell papers.

Well, if the spotting truly is this child she's gone by now thanks to the press.

Really? Are you sure about that? IIRC, 'Maddies dad' was a suspect for over a year until the investigation was shelved - he wasn't 'cleared'...

This will end up being one of those many sightings I'm afraid. Would like to know who this 'informant' is. A pattern is emerging here.....
