"Miracles do happen - why not for Maddie" - Daily Mail column

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2135920/Miracles-happen-Maddie-Hope-McCanns-Scotland-Yard-detectives-review-case.html

This is a dreadful article - no surprises there - which will cause a shortage of sick buckets. Jan Moir is the lady whose article in 2009 on the deceased Boyzone singer Stephen Gately attracted unprecedented criticism and for which she was obliged to apologise.

She's certainly playing things safe now.

From the above quoted article :

Let us hope that the Portuguese authorities do the decent thing and follow up on every single lead that Scotland Yard now unearth.

The world would expect the British police to do the same if a Portuguese child went missing here — and you can bet your beat-pounding boots that our cops absolutely would.


I don’t think anyone could deny that from start to finish, the behaviour of the Portuguese police involved in investigating this case has been at the very least — infuriating.

And underneath the picture of Madeleine they have this, unbelievable that they can't even get this right................

Heartbreaking: It is nearly six years since the then three-year-old Madeleine McCann disappeared while she was on a family holiday in Portugal

If the Met have intelligence that provides clues to Maddies whereabouts then THEY should be looking for her now! If a British National is effectively being held somewhere against her will there should be a rescue attempt: use the Army, the Navy, the SAS to locate and retrieve her, it is not about solving a crime it is about taking action. Of course I am more inclined to believe the doggies rather than any UK politician or Scotland Yard.

It was hard to imagine anything more nauseating than Jan Moir's article but here's a strong contender from Tony Parsons, he of the sardine munching police fame.

It would be good if the reason the cadaver scent dog barked was found, i.e. to an old bed that someone had died on vis a vis the Shannon Matthews case. Apart from that one, I have never read that this dog has alerted to the last place a missing person was seen and that person subsequently turned up alive.

It's ok found it, and it proves dogs do the job they were trained to do very well. The did find cadaver scent whilst looking for Shannon Matthews, which is what they do, they cannot distinguish who it is from though. If it was a second hand bed, and someone had died there, then they were right yet again, and as far as we know, no-one else died in that apartment, or flower bed or car...........
Excellent dogs, always right.


Victim recovery dogs from four different police forces were used during searches for kidnapped schoolgirl Shannon Matthews in Dewsbury in West Yorkshire in 2008.

The dogs found evidence of dead bodies, but officers later discovered the corpses were nothing to do with her disappearance.

"The properties searched contained a high level of second-hand furniture bought from dwellings where someone had died," according to the NPIA report.

Candyfloss, no problem, the problem with the cadaver dog alerting only to the last place a missing person was is, according to the Mccann supporters, either just sheer bad luck or corruption. That statement is libellous at the very least and ridiculous when you research the dogs history. I wonder what Andy Redwood thinks of this. But I should not ask, he could turn out to be the Mccanns nemesis, IF they were involved.

Andy Redwood will have the same view of the dogs as any other human being on the planet (bar two, of course)
Dogs are increasingly involved in the medical world detecting the difference between a benign mole and a malignant melanoma, and most recently the trials are being concluded on early stage detection of lung cancer, simply by smelling a person's breath. They can do this years before the tumour has developed to a point where any other diagnostic procedure can detect it.
They are remarkable. So much so that we humans still have no real idea how sensitive and discriminatory they can be.
(Apart from Keila and Eddie, of course, who are completely useless.)

Yes he MUST have the same idea as most normal rational people, including all LE, perhaps he hasnt yet read the part of the files that detail the alerts, I mean they are only a quarter of the way through

dogs do not lie.... but despite all their training, just to please their trainers,sometimes alert to things that are not there [according to some]

I have posted on an oncologist's use of these dogs for detection of bladder cancer, dogs alerting to the presence of cancer cells by sniffing urine samples, alerting well before cancer detectable by usual methods, can't recall where that post is now...

So Eddie the cadaver dog alerted to 5a just to please the trainer? I find that hard to believe. That is saying the trainer/dog handler made him do so over and above all the other apartments. That is clearly libel. This is not the case. Eddie showed interest in 5a, as soon as he was in there, that is why the handler spent more time in there. He showed no interest in the other flats.

I have still to hear from anyone about cases where Eddie the cadaver dog has alerted to the last place a missing person was seen and that person turn up alive.

Staying on this subject, does anyone here know why Kate Mccann states in her book that the cadaver scent last no more than a month and what her source for this is as I find it hard to understand if this was the case why police would use cadaver dogs after a month.

The pair researched these dogs and learnt all about "cueing" and the little doggy woggies loving their master so much they would do something just to get a dog biscuit [ my sarcastic words not theirs ]
Kate relaxed watching the video...as it clearly was not what she would call an exact science. In stead of c****ing herself that the alert meant her dead or injured daughter had been removed from 5a. As you would...... relax.

Yes Russiandoll, any parent of a missing child would relax if a cadaver dog alerted in their bedroom!
thumbup

I guess they asked for them to be brought in, according to Gerry Mccann for that reason, to relax them

In one study involving four dogs and their handlers, Jacobi says the dogs were able to detect remains at all stages of decomposition. Performance varied between dogs, but some could locate skeletonised remains buried in an area of 300ft by 150ft. "The few single human vertebrae I used in the study were well over 25 years old, and dry bone," Jacobi says. "This made the discovery of one of these vertebrae, which we buried in dense woods 2ft deep, by a cadaver dog pretty remarkable."


cueing
With known problems, handlers can inadvertently cue their dogs and this can make dogs seem more reliable than they really are. (see Lit, Schweitzer and Oberbauer for a recent example). Single blind problems seem like the answer. But, they aren’t. The same subtle and non-conscious cuing between handler and dog that we all know about can also take place between handler and evaluator. A good trainer doesn’t give the problem away on purpose. She keeps her game face on. But the circle of people we train with is fairly limited and over the years, like a good poker player, we learn to read each other. You learn everyone’s “tells” even if you can’t describe them explicitly. You just have a feel for when you are getting warmer, and when you are cold and you are right often enough.

What applies between handlers and evaluators applies to dogs and evaluators as well. If dogs can predict seizures, it stands to reason that they can learn to detect whatever subtle changes in vital signs and body chemistry in evaluators and observers. Dogs read everyone’s ‘tells” or cues. And these cues may become reinforcers. Without saying a word, the evaluator may be shouting out,

“Yes, you are getting warmer. Be confident. Go ahead and do your trained indication.”

I think Grime was experienced enough and the dogs he used had got it right all the time....for this not to have been the case and these were not false alerts. Not enough without corroborating evidence though. o/t so will say adieu

What I don't understand is why Martin Grime would subconsciously want his dogs to alert where they did.

It must have been in his mind that if Eddie alerted and subsequently Madeleine was found alive, then the reputation of his dogs would be ruined.

However, if Eddie did not alert and Madeleine was subsequently found dead, then all that would show was that she didn't die and remain long enough in the apartment for the dog to detect a cadaver scent.

So, in my opinion, if there was any subconscious feeling detected from him, it would be to refuse to give an alert.

PRECISELY.
The dog handler has nothing to gain from a false alert and EVERYTHING to LOSE. Reputation of the dog, reputation of self as handler and trainer and so on.
If the dog does not find something he does not say "there is nothing" he merely reports that the dog did not alert.
If the dog does alert he does not report "there was definitely a body at this point", he merely reports the dog alerted here, and here.
It is then up to sentient human beings to make the connection, and to find the other evidence, whether that be physical signs or a confession.

IIRC he could have asked for the tracker dogs to be brought in initially, which they were, and were given a communal towel of the family to use as the scent, but this didn`t lead far. The EVRD dogs, I believe, were not requested by TM.

Cadaver odour can be picked up by EVRD dogs decades later - in fact I have read (don`t ask me for the link cos I can`t remember) that it can even be 100 yrs or more depending on whether the location has allowed for dispersement or whether it has remained trapped and concentrated.

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

I agree but whether he's read only part of the files or not I should imagine that he was well aware of the dogs alerting in apartment 5a. If he's had meetings with the PJ and the Porto police, they must have brought him up to date with their findings which are in the files and what they believe happened, handed over the files SY wanted and said "go throught that lot and see what you make of them".
