Gerry And Kate McCann 'Encouraged' By New Madeleine Search In Praia Da Luz
The Huffington Post UK/PA  |  Posted: 05/06/2014 20:39 BST  |  Updated: 05/06/2014 20:59 BST






The parents of missing Madeleine McCann have said they are "encouraged" by the progress made by police as they search scrubland in Portugal close to where she went missing seven years ago.
Writing on the Official Find Madeleine Campaign Facebook page, Kate and Gerry McCann thanked their followers for the support they have received as the methodical probe of land in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz was carried out for a fourth day.
"We are being kept updated on the on-going work in Portugal and are encouraged by the progress," the message said.
"Thank you for continuing to stand by us and supporting our efforts to get Madeleine home."
It was signed off "Gerry and Kate". The McCanns, from Rothley in Leicestershire, have not travelled to Portugal where their daughter went missing in May 2007, aged three.

Madeleine McCann has been missing since 2007

The message from them came after a further day of activity at the site that saw British police accompanied by their Portuguse counterparts focus on searching drains.
A five-man team was seen lifting three manhole covers and lowering a camera attached to a long pole down them.
One of them wrote notes in a book as they looked inside, around 20ft from where ground-penetrating radar equipment was used yesterday.

One of the men also lowered a tape measure into the drains, which were just inside the cordon set up around the large area of scrubland.
Other officers spent the day working out of sight of the public's gaze and the lenses of the TV crews and press who spent the day watching from the police cordon, which surrounds the site and is being guarded by armed officers day and night.
The search of the area for clues as to what happened to Madeleine is likely to go into a second week after British police applied to the judiciary to spend an extra seven days there.
It is not clear whether they will work over the weekend and nothing is expected to be carried out on Tuesday as it is a public holiday.
Another hole was also dug today near the spot where the radar equipment was previously used.

The hole was then covered with a white tent and an officer was seen using a small paintbrush on some of the large pile of earth that had been dug out outside.
The area was marked with a small yellow flag, which have been dotted around the site at points of interest to the police.
Earlier Metropolitan Police Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, the senior officer investigating the case, looked on as a group of his officers used pickaxes and spades to clear leaves and grass from the area, which yesterday saw local forestry workers hacking away at the undergrowth.
The Portuguese workers spent a third day using strimmers and chainsaws, this time on an area on the opposite side of the wasteland, close to the sea.
Yesterday the land being searched, which is a few minutes' walk from the Ocean Club resort apartment where Madeleine and her family were staying, saw officers focusing their investigations on a hole that had been previously covered by undergrowth.
But it is understood nothing of significance was discovered there, with bones found identified as those of animals.
Forensics officers could be seen sifting through soil in sieves, with earth also carried away in wheelbarrows.
Tonight the sides of the white tent which covered the hole were removed to reveal several plastic evidence bags lined up in a row before they were carried away by Portuguese officers.
Sniffer dogs from South Wales Police, which were used in the search for schoolgirl April Jones, have also been used on the site, and were seen with their handlers earlier today.

What parent would be "encouraged" by a search moving from a missing person to a body, they beggar belief.

Parents relieved by the fact the search is going on 'here', not 'there'

Pure arrogance.


Apparently there was a doctor who had died, and when he got to the pearly gates, there was a long line, and he said to himself, "I'm a doctor! Surely I don't have to wait in a line" so he went to the front of the line.
St. Peter was there greeting the new arrivals, and he said to the doctor, "whoa! Wait a minute sir! You have to wait in this here line before I can let you in".
The Doctor replied, "But I'm a doctor!"
to which St. Peter chuckled and said, "Well, up here you have to wait just like everyone else."
The Doctor was very angry and stormed back to the end of the line. By now a lot more folks had arrived, and the line was much longer. As he stood in line, he stewed over the fact that he had to wait just like everyone else. After all, he was a doctor. The more he thought about it, the more angry he became. And just as he was thinking about all of the power and control he was missing on earth, he noticed a man coming who was dressed in the finest shoes shirt, tie and trousers under a white a lab coat, completed with a stethoscope dangling from his neck. "Obviously this man is a doctor" the doctor thought to himself. But instead of going to the end of the line and waiting just like everyone else, he walked to the front of the line. Peter gave him a thumbs up and a wink as he stepped to the side and allowed him to enter, giving him a high five as he passed.
When the doctor saw this, he was outraged and stomped to the front of the line and demanded entrance because, like the man who had just been admitted, he too was a doctor, and should be allowed to enter.
Peter laughed and said "You don't understand sir! That wasn't a doctor... that was God! He just thinks that he's a doctor!."

laugh very good masterblaster...and  welcome 

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

As as aside, I hope the McCann's are very grateful for all the effort that has been given to them in the search for their daughter who died in their holiday apartment leaving a trail of blood of cadaver behind the sofa and in the wardrobe and on Kate McCann's clothes and who was then transported in the back of the car the McCann's hired 25 days after her faked abduction. 

I wonder if the McCann's feel ever so slightly guilty, when they see all these photos of police officers manually digging that scrubland for their daughter who they know know isn't there.

I wonder if the McCann's feel ever so slightly guilty for sending hundreds, possibly thousands, of police officers on a wild goose chase over the years?

Do they feel guilty for perverting the course of justice and denying their first born daughter the justice she deserves?

Shame on them, shame I tell you.  shame on you 

And Karma.

Still very bizarre with last night's brief report on Sky, about how the McCanns were pleased with/ encouraged by the searching, with background video of two policeman digging with their spades.

 Incongruous, those words and pictures.

I expect they are pleased and encouraged.......that nothing has been found to implicate them yet.

Someone posted on this forum the other day that we have not seen quotes such as the above for a while, now we have one.

I certainly would not be encouraged.

Maybe I'm wrong but I think the "pleased & encouraged" quote referred to here was actually a quote from late 2013?
