So Gordon has a brother John Brown.
A John Brown -golfer!- rents the Scenic in the week Maddie disappears.

His co-driver is a Michael Wright.
Maddies fathers co-driver is a Michael Wright.

Which leads us where?

So did John Brown and GM meet before or at the handover of the Scenic under the original contract?
Or did this Wright guy take care of that?

Did Brown and GM perhaps know each other, say, from this or previous golfing trips?

Is there a connection?

What caused Gordon Brown to take such a deep, curious personal interest in the affair, right from day One?

This case is full of weird coincidences like this. You couldn't write it and make it believable

The PJ traced the other Wright & Brown to living in Milton Keynes. Reminds me of dianne webster who at the time was living in Bedford and working as a local government credit controller in Milton Keynes, the NHS accounts I believe

Another name coincidence is Pedro Silva, who is all over the net as a vile pro mccann, and FB friends of Susan Healey and Pam Guerney

In the PJ files

GNR
Terms of Delivery

On 16th June 2007, Infantry Soldier Pedro Silva delivers the following used girl’s clothing to the PJ Inspector who signs this delivery note:

1 checked shirt
2 pairs of pants
3 empty torn bin bags

This was brought to this GNR station on 15-06-2007 by an English lady called Nancy Burridge, resident in Praia da Luz who found the clothing in Colinas Verdes, Bensafrim, Lagos.

She thought the clothing might be of interest to the police investigation in relation to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Delivered

Alot of these names are very common. Its easy to try make a connection on the flimsiest of bases, but the problem here is we might be trying to do a dot to dot with no numbers. i dont want to be doing no puzzles for years with a single clue.

No I know you didn’t. I did. I said you need a visa for the US if you have been arrested in the past.

If you look at the stamp its pretty clear that there is no visa or you would see it.

No it's not and no I wouldn't.

Your looking at the CATS number is totally irrelevant to a person having two passports.

Yes, I realise that. But it isn’t totally irrelevant if a previous arrest necessitated a visa.

It has nothing at all to do with having been arrested in the past or having a CATS number if you want a second passport.

No, I also realise that. But you clearly stated that requiring a visa can allow for the issuing of a second passport did you not.

If Gerry McCann frequently travelled and sometimes needed a visa then that is perfectly good reason in itself to require a second passport.

Exactly. But the second passport appears to have been issued just prior to travelling to the US and being British he would not need a visa for there unless there were other circumstances as outlined above.
I fail to see where the complication is?

Budget would have had to have seen the passport before accepting it on their car hire contract, so this suggests strongly gerry mccann did use another passport

Why he was still using the Queniborough address and carries the Queniborough address around with him in his wallet after a year and a half is also very mysterious

Its only a days difference. He could have signed before travelling and the buyer sign afterwards. Its not a big deal IMO. Theres powers of attorneys, faxes, 24 hour couriers and all sorts. I think I will bow out of here for now. As I think when GM signing off with his estate agents or lawyers in January 2006 for a new house has nothing to do with MM going missing in May 2007, its just another garden path to lose hours off your life for nothing.

I have to say I agree with that final comment.

But I would like to throw in a side swipe.

That passport number on that car rental agreement suggests only two possibilities to me. And I know which I am favouring.

The first is that the passport Gerry McCann showed to the rental clerk was fake. Why? Because you don't get passports issued on January 1st for the UK. It is as Portia pointed out a bank holiday.

The other option is that the passport number is just random, badly transcribed or even made up. I would like to ask people if they have, like me, ever been involved in hiring vehicles abroad? If they have they will know that often in less central offices the attention to detail is minimal.

Unless he was carrying a fake passport with a totally stupid date of issue then I think the second option is most likely.

And a more general point I would like to ask is if people really think that the PJ were so bad at their jobs that they didn't check out these details?

Personally, I think they were probably just as concerned as we are about the issues and resolved them.

Did they notice the Scenics records being tampered with?

Do you seriously believe that there is a passport with that date of issue or expiry? I don't and I know from experience that the checking by people in these offices of passports and other documentation is abysmal.

There are currently over two million people who have not updated their driving licences. That means every one of those people is liable to a £1000 fine. Perhaps Gerry was just very bad at that kind of personal thing. I know I am even though I have a pretty good job and keep on top of work things I do let home paperwork slip a lot.

It is a simple entry stamp for you..

Nor is he using a new passport for the US in Jan 2006. That passport he used for entry into Miami in Jan 2006 was nearly two years old.

And the date of the passport on the driving licence would suggest that it was applied for long after Jan 2006 as it appears to be from 2007.

But we have no way of knowing if he had two passports. That seems possible. Or when they were applied for. It could have been long before Jan 2006 or after that date.

No we don't. But the details of the passport on the car hire documents ie date and number are different to the passport details we know of as outlined at the begining of the thread by JD

I have had two passports now for over 23 years and each one just gets renewed separately.

I think I'll leave it here.....

This is pure conjecture - is it possible that the car was hired on behalf of GM, with the assistance of one of their wealthy backers? Perhaps with details from a previous hire by GM when last in Portugal, or, details supplied with the last known address of GM by said wealthy backer, passport number either fictitious or that of someone else. IIRC the the Scenic was handed back to Budget by a 'Geraghty' http://www.mccannpjfiles.co.uk/PJ/59-DA-27.htm#2955

Damn dogs !

This is very true, but why are they using a false address and what appears to be a false passport number too?

Murat gave a different address too, His Ex wife's when hiring a car,

Or perhaps it was hired by someone with enough clout to get the UK Passport Office to open its doors to issue a passport on January 1st? I doubt anybody beneath the rank of God could manage that so that points to one hell of a conspiracy but what the heck this is only speculation after all. I am not claiming its anything to do with the truth of the matter.

Perhaps McCann and Murat were both among those 2 million people who have not updated their licences as required by law? There is a good chance after all.

Yes if purchasers are interested in buying a house the Vendors can sign a Contract which would be held by the Solicitor in readiness to exchange even if you are not present i.e.on holiday.

So gerry mccann has what looks to be perfectly legit passport issued on Sept 2004, 7 years validity on it, used to go the States, obviously used to go to PDL with and its details given to the official police investigation files. gerry mccann having a few days previous to the car hire contract obviously used it to go back to Rothley for a few days and read the Gaspar statement at LPP (imo)

So why on earth has he suddenly used a completely different passport for the car hire? when he doesn't seem to have used it anywhere else. What is so special that the 'other' passport was used just for the car hire contract?

It can't have been to back up his driving license with because the 'other' passport was issued in 2007 so would have had the Rothley address on it as they had been living in Rothley for a year at time of issue. if anything, he would have used the one in the PJ files which was issued in 2004 as this is most likely to have the Queniborough address on it

Could someone else have used theirs as gerry mccann was busy? Possibly, but gerry mccann would have given to whoever his driving license details and address so why omit the passport? None of his friends with all things being equal would know his postcode

Reading gerry mccanns blogs, he was not busy on 27th May 2007 (Sunday). He went for a run in the hills, attended a mass, had lunch, and then stayed in the apartment in the afternoon catching up on emails whilst kate mccann took the twins to the beach. No reason for gerry mccann to have been too busy for someone else to have made the contract on his behalf. The contract was made at 12.30pm, so this fits nicely between after mass and before taking lunch

gerry mccann blog 27th may 2007

Strange day after all the activity during the week. Kate and I started off with an early morning run to the the top of the nearby cliffs. Sean and Amelie were back in kids club and went swimming again. The rest of us attended mass which was very emotional as a priest from RAF Lossiemouth was visiting and further prayers were said for Madeleine. Father Zee-Manuel has also rigged up a powerpoint display projecting a large photograph of Madeleine on to the wall, which he is very proud of and reminds us of the beautiful little girl we are missing so terribly.

There have been some requests for more information ‘about Madeleine’ and this section will be updated very soon. We will also be releasing a very short video of Madeleine taken at the Airport on the day we left for Portugal, Saturday 28 April. Sean and Amelie went to the beach this afternoon with mummy, auntie Trisha and Anne but daddy stayed in the apartment catching up on campaign e-mails, making calls and liaising with Clarence our press officer. The resort is much busier again as it is half-term and there are definitely less journalists here. Many of them have been here since the beginning and are making this journey with us.

The couple of Sunday articles we read did not cover much of what we talked about and seemed to get some of the other stuff wrong! We stated that Sean and Amelie are sleeping in our room (in separate cots) because of other family staying with us and that we were trying to treat them as normal and not be overprotective. This came out that we were so protective we have to have them sleeping in our bed! These inaccuracies are not important in our search for Madeleine and the next phase is being planned currently.

It looks like our planned trips to other European cities will start off in Rome after we learned today that the Pope has been following Madeleine’s abduction closely. There is a reasonable chance we may get a chance to meet the Pontiff and that he will pray for Madeleine. Such a visit would generate huge publicity regarding the family campaign to find Madeleine and will also give Kate and I a great spiritual lift. It will also raise the awareness of missing and abused children generally. We continue to pray that someone will provide the key information that leads us to Madeleine.

SUNDAY, MAY 27: Clarence (Clarence Mitchell, Foreign Office family liaison at the time) spoke to us about a possible trip to the Vatican. It seems that it really is going to happen—main story on the news!

Spoke to Dad. I went for a walk to the beach with Sean and Amelie. Frozen. Beach—slippery, wet feet.

We all had dinner when we got back to the apartment.

We have to keep looking. We have to find you beloved xxxxx.

Why take two toddlers 'swimming' in freezing conditions?

If KM experiences the temperature as freezing, how would these babies have felt?
And yet: to the beach you go, not once (swimming) but twice (freezing, slippery, wet feet)

Responsible parenting, what?

And as for the second passport: if you use a different passport for different activities, maybe you do not want one or more of these activities to come to light? Or you do not want to run the risk of not being able to get on an outbound plane because of one of the passports having been sequesterd during a police inquiry. Who knows.

PS. The beach is not slippery at all. It's a sandy beach. The nearby rocks are very slippery, though.

So much going on. Busy, busy busy. Meeting the Pope, going for runs, off to the beach, family lunch, answering e-mails, chatting with family.

Oh yes, nearly forgot. Note to self: We have to keep looking.

Thanks. Im looking at things that make sense and everything about the car hire is so mysterious and inconsistent and just not logical. It should be just a straight forward contract, name/address/DVLA/passport, there is no reason for false addresses and different passport numbers. I haven't started on the statement inconstancies/who were the additional drivers/who else had a hire car yet!!! Let alone the DNA blood that was found in the car months later. This is just the basic hire contract!!

Considering mccann used the Sept 2004 passport to the States, I see no reason why he would need another one. Their holidays were inside the EU. There is only one reason that is logical for another passport and that is from fact that both kate and gerry mccann have a CATS number

I don't know how it works in the UK, but I have to produce my current passport to get a new one (unless one has lost one of course)imo it's only political and business people who are allowed to have more than one passport as they may travel to countries which may refuse them entry if a stamp shows them to have been in an 'enemy' country.
E.g. having an israeli stamp in your passport would probably get you turned away at the Iranian border.

So just to have two passports available as and when needed is a big ????
Unless it's simply that he was given a new one when visiting the UK (as you say, reading the Gaspar statement, looking for DNA of Maddie and the lucky find of that pool photo).
The one on the PJ files may have been kept by the PJ? Or was it just another instance of help given from above - gave him another passport (probably not one with the smiley photo on it) just in case he needed one in a hurry and the PJ still had his. Would that be the passport used when they came back to the UK?

Sorry for repeating myself, but which authority issued GMs 2004-2014 passport? "FCO'?
Who or what is FCO?

And another question: whereas GMs passport has a signature, KMs doesn't.
How does that fit in?

There were 4 passports in 5A...both mccanns and twins...And why would gerry mccann be taking 2 passports on holiday with him anyway? The one in the PJ files is perfectly legit for a trip to Portugal

They couldn't have given gerry mccann another incase he needed it in a hurry because it was issued in January 2007. (around the time payne booked the holiday) Plus the PJ would not have kept any passport unless they were suspects which at that time they were not. They would have taken the details and scans then given it back. There is a reason for using this other passport number and it will tie in with the Waterloo wallet snatch a few weeks later imo

Oh yes, nearly forgot. Note to self: We must keep searching.

BTW I love your analytical approach JD.

Thanks. Im looking at things that make sense and everything about the car hire is so mysterious and inconsistent and just not logical. It should be just a straight forward contract, name/address/DVLA/passport, there is no reason for false addresses and different passport numbers. I haven't started on the statement inconstancies/who were the additional drivers/who else had a hire car yet!!! Let alone the DNA blood that was found in the car months later. This is just the basic hire contract!!

Considering mccann used the Sept 2004 passport to the States, I see no reason why he would need another one. Their holidays were inside the EU. There is only one reason that is logical for another passport and that is from fact that both kate and gerry mccann have a CATS number

Yes, the CATS number is where you meet the proverbial brick wall. No explanation has ever been forthcoming for the existence of this file. I have read somewhere that when these files are set up they must provide the reason for doing so (as illogical as that may seem!!!). A benchmark is than laid down for later referral, if need be. IIRC this was instituted by CEOP after the catastrophic Climbié case. Yet, I understand that the file had nothing on it. Just the name and, of course, its allocated number.

Some have mooted this file may have been drawn up post Sept 2007, after the visit of social workers to assess the twins' situation. This has never been clarified to my knowlege. But, in terms of the passport enigma, it certainly has a bearing.

ETA When you meet a brick wall, go round it!

Thanks, didn't know it was 7/1/07.
So imo we're back to 2006 when it all started.
The wallet snatch, the very complicated car hire method all being fall-out from something that was much earlier and needed obliterating. Add to that that imo the pool photo without Amelie is kosher, it's really Gerry and really Maddie in OC but some 8 to 9 months earlier than 5/07.
Add Murat - whom the PJ are sure was acquainted with Gerry, add four golf courses, Gerry having been in Portugal to play golf, add JT whose been to Portugal several times before and before 3/5/07 we have quite a lot of connections.

(to add re the CAT file). There must have been contents, perhaps it's easier to delete and/or add material, but deleting an entire file may need more than one persons' authorisation. Seems logical to me. So the contents could have been taken out by one person, or deleting the file would also leave a gap in the numbering system. So that it was safer to leave it.

It appears that this 'second' passport may have been issued by the British Embassy in PT. Possibly because the PJ had the originals, or that Gerry had lost his.
This is the most simplest explaination, IMO.

Edited to add: FCO is the foreign & commonwealth office.
