'STOP BEING ARMCHAIR COPS'
Madeleine McCann’s parents Kate and Gerry hit back at critics of new Met Police cash to track down missing girl



Kate and Gerry McCann hit back after parents of two missing kids slammed the move and a top ex-cop said solving the Maddie riddle was 'almost impossible'

THE parents of Madeleine McCann have defended the new police cash boost to help find their daughter - and urged critics to “stop being armchair detectives.”

Kate and Gerry hit back after a top ex-cop said solving the Maddie riddle after nearly 11 years was “almost impossible”.

And the parents of two missing children slammed the Government for handing over more money for the high-profile hunt.

It comes after the Home Office last week confirmed Scotland Yard would get extra funds - understood to be £150,000 - to chase a vital “final line of inquiry”.

A close pal of the couple told the Sun Online today: “Kate and Gerry do not feel their daughter’s case should be given any more priority than any other missing child but there is an active police investigation ongoing and officers still feel there is important work left to be done.

“The Met Police have requested extra funding and  have been granted it.


PA:Press Association

Madeleine McCann is still nearly 11 years on
"Kate and Gerry didn’t ask for it but they are very thankful the search for Madeleine will continue.

“It’s not helpful and is very hurtful for retired police officers and in the past so called crime experts and other families to say the investigation should be wound up and is a waste of public money.

“Kate and Gerry believe there is a  chance their daughter could still be found alive, as detectives do.

“They have enough to deal with and don’t need people with no idea about the case being armchair detectives and hopes the criticism stops.

“It undermines the work of one of the best police forces in the world.”

Maddie McCann would now be 13 years old
Former detective Colin Sutton, who turned down the chance of leading the Maddie inquiry, believes the girl is dead and her body buried in one of many ancient wells near Praia da Luz, Portugal, from where she vanished in May 2007.

He told an Australian documentary at the weekend that investigators faced  a “thankless task” and insisted: “It’s almost impossible without specific intelligence that would allow you to focus on a specific area.”

So far the investigation, launched in May 2011, has cost the taxpayer more than £11.2million.

Last week former GP Kate, 50, and heart doctor Gerry, 49, of Rothley, Leics, were verbally attacked by the parents of two missing kids.

The mum of Ben Needham slammed the McCann’s on national TV.

Madeleine McCann vanished while her family was in holiday in Portugal 10 years ago
Venting her frustration on Loose Women, Kerry Needham said she had not received the same “magnitude” of support as Maddie’s parents.

Kerry, 43, from South Yorks, whose son disappeared during a family holiday to the Greek island of Kos in 1991,  said: “It hurts. It hurts us and it hurts me as Ben’s mum.

“I’m not taking anything away from it at all – she deserves to be found but so does Ben and we haven’t had a fraction of that help.

“I’ve had to fight alone as a single mum and tried to get the help that Ben deserves and that we deserve as a family. It did happen in the end but not to the magnitude that that case has had.”

A dad whose son has been missing for over two years hit out after the Home Office it was giving Scotland Yard’s Maddie inquiry, Operation Grange, an undisclosed sum to keep going for another six months.

Kerry said she was 'hurt' after learning the Home Office had provided extra cash for the search for Madeleine McCann
As more funding to find Maddie - understood to be £150,000 - was announced Kate and Gerry were also targeted by furious dad Paul Whinham.

He has written to the Prime Minister to complain about the resources given to the seven-year probe which has already cost taxpayers £11.5 million.

Paul from Wallsend, Tyneside, whose son Michael disappeared from his home in Newcastle in November 2015, aged 31 said: “There’s people like me all over the country being told there’s no more the police can do and yet this one case gets all the money and attention.”

Paul revealed he penned his letter a few months ago, saying: “I wrote asking why all missing people weren’t being treated equally.

“The policing minister Nick Hurd wrote back to say that every enquiry gets the same treatment, but then goes on to say that when Theresa May was Home Secretary she set up a special unit to look for Madeleine McCann.

“If that’s not preferential treatment, I don’t know what is.”

The McCann’s pal pointed out today how much they had done to help put the cases of all missing people in the spotlight.

Kate, now a medical worker, is still an ambassador for the charity Missing People and “works tirelessly to raise aware of missing children”, the source said.

The pal added: “It seems unfair and insensitive that people are always scrutinising Madeleine’s case.

The 11th Anniversary is coming up so there's bound to be another shytefest for the next month or so, further desecrating the memory of three-year-old Madeleine McCann by her own parents.

Answer the 48 questions and I'll consider taking a break from being an armchair detective.

In addition, taken from the Textusa forum, it would appear that a pro-McCann has been sentenced, in Wales, to 6 months in jail for harassment.

We all know who that would be . . . but I doubt they have got a single close pal between them.

Yep, she harassed Chris Roberts for about 3 years and got 6 months in jail.

Ben Thompson has been harassing Tony for more than 4 years.

The case has been "ongoing" for sometime.  She was, rightly, IMO, sentenced yesterday to six months, which I believe is the maximum sentence via a magistrates court, albeit this time by a judge.  This woman reported me to the Gwent police and was more than vile in her comments about Brenda Leyland. For anyone interested the police couldn't have been less interested in my online activity.  IMO this woman was used and played like a violin, for kudos, friendship and saving others from a spell inside.  She was allowed to get away with far too much for far too long.

Thanks LG.

Is it possible to enlighten us, if you can, as to what you mean as regards “used & played......to save others” ?

In your opinion of course.

Thank you

IMO and no secret to those who were members of many MBM groups on FB that Ormiston, who chose to post under many pseudonyms Gwen James, Karen Belfrey amongst them, was and probably still is online friends with the likes or Gurney and Holt.  I believe that she was willing to please them and got carried away with her online personas and then was "persuaded", egged on to take her actions into the real world visiting home addresses and committing crimes at local venues.  Unfortunately, she wasn't stopped at that stage and she then carried out an online vendetta against Chris Roberts and "buoyed" by the fact that the, law didn't stop her, no doubt, IMO, egged on by her friends she then included members of Chris' family for her vile abuse.  She wasn't referred to as "batshit crazy" on FB groups without reason.

Hi Polyenne,I don't suppose a certain University would want to include Mrs Ormiston as part of the Troll Gate accolade they targeted only anti's in their unbiased study?

Hi,Polyenne,perhaps Mr Nessling could dedicate some of his 150 hrs Community time to take part in further studies for the Pro's assisting Kate and Gerry's case?
