Tracey back from her hol's? 3rd Oct 2018

Tracey’s back from her hol’s!
 
Another old revamped story, with pretty much the same David Edgar quotes and an ‘it is claimed today’ to try and update it.
 
Ex-Madeleine McCann detective reveals she could still be alive – and people out there know where she is

MISSING Madeleine McCann could still be alive - but the truth about her disappearance may only come out in her abductor's deathbed confession, it is claimed today.
As Scotland Yard pleads for more cash from British taxpayers to fund their investigation, former top cop David Edgar admitted: “It’s a baffling case, but I think it's solvable.”
 
Madeleine McCann's disappearance is a 'solvable' case, an ex-detective has said
The ex-Maddie detective is convinced cops will only get a breakthrough if the kidnapper confides all about the May 2007 disappearance, and believes people in Portugal know where she is.
Mr Edgar, who was hired by Maddie’s parents Kate and Gerry for three years before the Met's Operation Grange was launched in May 2011, told The Sun Online: “There are people out there who know what happened.
"The best hope of a breakthrough, even after all this time, will be if and when someone’s conscience is pricked. It may be that the person responsible for Madeleine’s kidnap is dying and makes a deathbed confession, or someone close to that person comes forward after he or she has passed away.
“Or it could be that the abductor falls out with others who know and they finally decide to contact police.”
 
David Edgar, above, said the best hope of a breakthrough will be when 'someone's conscience is pricked'
Mr Edgar, a retired Detective Inspector, added: “Whoever is responsible will have confided in someone else. They usually do and it is very rare that they don’t.”
He echoes the McCanns’ sentiments that Maddie, who would now be aged 15, could still be alive after vanishing as a three-year-old from the family holiday apartment in Portugal’s Praia da Luz in May 2007.
He said: “She could literally be anywhere in the world but my hunch is that she is in Portugal.
"The chance that she may have been smuggled out of the country without being detected is highly unlikely. There is someone in Portugal with an open knowledge of where she is and what happened."
 
Mr Edgar said Kate and Gerry, above, will never give up the search for Madeleine
He added: “Unless a body is found there is hope. Everyone hopes for a positive outcome and Kate and Gerry will never give up, even when the funding runs out."
Mr Edgar believes the teenager could be living with her captor in a hideaway home inland from the popular seaside towns on the Algarve. He said: "There is every possibility that Madeleine is still alive and could be being hidden somewhere and having no idea that she is at the centre of a worldwide hunt for her."
He believes detectives are doing a decent job despite failing to unearth any significant clues amid continual requests to the Home Office for extra funding to chase a “final line of inquiry.”
Mr Edgar explained said the main obstacle was the fact British police were investigating the disappearance of a Brit on foreign soil, as "everything has to be rubber stamped by authorities there".
Members of public and the Police Federation have been critical over the McCanns' alleged "privileged treatment” using taxpayers’ money granted by the Home Office.
Gerry and Kate McCann say 'there is still hope that we can find Madeleine'
 
So far £11.6 million has been handed out with a fresh request of up to £150,000 now being considered.
In the Yard’s defence he explained: “They wouldn’t be requesting more funding it they didn’t need it.
"They will tell the Home Office what line of inquiry they think is worth pursuing, that Government department is made aware and the decision to use taxpayers’ money is up to them."
He added: "There can be breakthroughs after years, look at the Ben Needham case, he went missing on holiday and years later someone came forward with some vital information."
Toddler Ben, aged 21 months, disappeared from the Greek island of Kos in July 1991, and although his body has never been found police say there is “inconclusive evidence” he was killed after a tip off in October 2016.
Ben’s heartbroken mum Kerry was among families of missing people who hit out at the “unfair” funding awarded to Maddie’s parents.
 
On the night of May 3 2007 when she went missing, Maddie had been left alone with her younger twin siblings Sean and Amelie while her parents were dining in a nearby tapas restaurant with pals.
Maddie’s mum has always had a strong instinct her daughter could still be in Portugal, previously saying: "I’ve always said Praia da Luz is the place where I feel closest to her. That’s where she last was and I don’t think she’s been taken a million miles from there.”
Mr Edgar thinks the pretty blonde youngster was snatched by a child sex gang and urges accomplices to “come forward and tell the truth”, insisting: “It is never too late."
In an emotional BBC Radio 4 interview on Saturday, Gerry said he dreamed his daughter was still alive and believes they will one day be reunited.
“I just want to hug her, to hold her, to cry - a lot. Never a day goes by when I don’t think of Madeleine.”
Madeleine McCann's father Gerry McCann describes 'disbelief, panic and terror' at moment he realised daughter was missing in rare interview

More spin for the McCanns, why are you giving this shyster column space? He was the one that promoted Jane Tanner's sighting of a blank faced 'egg with hair' efit, he moved on and said it could have been a woman, she said at one point it was Robert Murat, then she said it wasn't and then Scotland Yard said her whole sighting was incorrect and it was a holiday maker.
He also said Madeleine was in a 'hellish lair' in Portugal - so why didn't he go and find her if he was so sure?
He is on their payroll, so of course he will come up with stories she is alive. Scotland Yard were using body sniffing dogs AGAIN in 2014!

Enough is enough and the idiotic PC Plod are as stupid as they come.  There's not a chance this child will be found alive, since her parents were involved in her murder and hid the body.  
Write to your MP, the PM, and state exactly that enough tax payer money has been spent on this charade by bungling PC Plod.  The child was dead even before the parents played out the charade of calling the Police in Portugal.

Many on here who obviously didn't hear Kate McCann say at the beginning she asks herself every day why she thought it was safe to leave Maddie. When you're in trouble and there is surely no worse trouble than the loss of a child, you really need the righteousness of others who of course 'know' what happened. I hope all the judges on here enjoy their perfect life and perfect decision making. They haven't a clue what happened except a family are in terrible grief and a young girl is missing. Such cruelty and unkindness. The McCann's live in a lovely little safe community, sort of place you can leave your door open, i feel sure this influenced their decision.

How could anyone have this child if she was alive. Would be very difficult to just appear one day with a small child and start acting like a family.   there has been that much media coverage it would be impossible, And Portugal is the last place she would be.   Think this ex cop is more interested in keeping the money flowing in.

Still nothing yet from the Mirror.
 
Slightly different slant from Jerry Lawton in the Star:
 
Madeleine McCann search to CARRY ON even after official cash gone
 
SCOTLAND YARD appeared to be footing the bill for the Madeleine McCann search last night as official cash dried up.
 
Jerry Lawton, Crime Correspondent Published 4th October 2018
 
The Metropolitan Police probe into the youngster's 2007 disappearance has been financed by special government grants for seven years.
 
The latest ran out on Sunday. Police chiefs have asked the Home Office for more, but are carrying on the investigation without knowing if they will get it.
The probe has already cost £11.6million.
 
In a tearful BBC Radio 4 interview at the weekend Madeleine's dad Gerry, 50, spoke of the importance of the inquiry to his family.
 
He said he and wife Kate were "extremely grateful" police were still trying to find their daughter, who vanished on Portugal's Algarve aged three.
 
He said Portuguese cops let them down in a "devastating" failure.
 
A Met Police spokesman said: "We are currently in dialogue with the Home Office regarding future funding."
 
A Home Office official said: "The application is still being considered."

MADDIE 'COULD BE ALIVE' 
Madeleine McCann investigator claims missing girl could be still ALIVE and hidden in a lair
David Edgar is convinced Maddie was abducted by a child sex gang and could still be being held in Portugal, where she vanished in 2007
EXCLUSIVE
By Tracey Kandohla
19th November 2018, 8:54 pm
Updated: 19th November 2018, 9:22 pm
 
MADELEINE McCann could still be alive imprisoned in a lair and have “no idea” who she is, a former top cop who once searched for her has revealed.
David Edgar, who is convinced Maddie was snatched by a child sex gang, said: “She is most likely being held captive, possibly in an underground cellar or dungeon and could emerge at any time.”
 
He believes she is being kept against her will under a false identity and could even still be in Portugal - where she vanished as a three-year-old in May 2007 - or in neighbouring Spain.
The retired Detective Inspector spoke out today after the Home Office announced last week it had granted an extra £150,000 to Scotland Yard to continue searching for the world’s most high profile missing child.
Met Police are chasing up two vital lines of inquiry and have told Maddie’s parents Kate and Gerry they are “hopeful of getting a result.”
Mr Edgar, who passed all his findings to the Operation Grange team when they took over the search in May 2011, said officers could be chasing up two old or new leads.
 
He believes they could be following up his theory - which the McCann’s feel is most probable - about a paedophile kidnap which he “never got to the bottom of.”
He explained: “Not for want of trying but as a private investigator I was faced with certain restrictions and stumbling blocks unlike the official authorities.”
Mr Edgar, 61, who was previously employed by Maddie’s parents for three years, told Sun Online that police may have had a recent tip off from someone known to the kidnappers - providing them with a second new lead.
He said: “I’ve always thought that whoever is responsible will have confided in someone else. They usually do and it is very rare that they don’t even if it takes years.
 
 “Now we’re approaching the 12th year, that’s a significant time but I think she could still be alive and someone is protecting her captors. Someone knows what happened and it’s time they came forward, may be they have and officers are waiting for a confession. It happens."
Mr Edgar added: “She could literally be anywhere in the world but my hunch is that she is in Portugal. The chance that she may have been smuggled out of the country without being detected is highly unlikely.
"There is someone in Portugal with an open knowledge of where she is and what happened.Someone knows what happened and it’s time they came forward - maybe they already have.”
“Unless a body is found there is hope. Everyone hopes for a positive outcome and Kate and Gerry will never give up, even when the funding runs out. I hope they get an answer they’ve been waiting for so long.”
 
Mr Edgar believes Maddie - who if alive would now be aged 15 - could be living with her captor in a hideaway home or underground den inland from the popular seaside towns on the Algarve from where she was snatched.
He likened her case to that of kidnapped sex slave Jaycee Lee Dugard who “came back from the dead.”
The 11-year-old schoolgirl was abducted from a street in Tahoe, California, in June 1991, on her way to school and was kept imprisoned for 18 years. She was found alive in August 2009.
Mr Edgar said: "There is every possibility that Madeleine is still alive and could be being hidden somewhere and having no idea even who she is and that she is at the centre of a worldwide hunt for her. He said the vast wilderness where he believes the teenager could be languishing may be almost impossible to search completely.
 
He explained: “This rural, sprawling terrain makes it extremely difficult to search. You could quite easily keep a child there for years and no-one else would know. She could be hidden away in a cellar or dungeon in the lawless villages around the resort she went missing from. The key thing is no body has been found. When paedophiles kill they often dump the body nearby and this doesn’t appear to be the case here. Even the ocean often gives up his victims.”
Maddie vanished from a holiday apartment in Portugal’s Praia da Luz eleven and a half years ago just days before her fourth birthday. She had been left alone sleeping with her younger twin siblings while her parents were dining in a nearby tapas restaurant with pals.
 
The Home Office last week announced it would grant an extra £150,000 to Operation Grange to keep the investigation going until spring next year
Police recently told her parents: “We’re hopeful we can get a result.” Op Grange team, who had been thought to be focusing on just one, told Kate and Gerry during a meeting they had “two specific and active” lines of inquiry.
The McCanns are “greatly encouraged” that cops could finally be closing in on their daughter’s kidnapper.

The Home Office last week announced it would grant an extra £150,000 to Operation Grange to keep the investigation going until spring next year. So far they have handed out £11.75 million of taxpayers’ money for the high-profile search.
A Whitehall source said: ”Metropolitan Police officers had a sit-down meeting with Madeleine’s parents to tell them exactly where they were with their inquiries. They informed them they had two specific and active leads that still needed to be chased and that although the investigation was taking longer than they initially thought officers said they were confident and hopeful they could get a result.”
 
Maddie's disappearance has baffled the world for more than a decade
It is understood detectives met Kate, a former GP, and eminent cardiologist Gerry, both 50, at their home in Rothley, Leics, last month.
Police refuse to make public any clues about the suspects they are determined to track down for fear of them going to ground.
Home Office 'to give Scotland Yard another £154,000 to fund Madeleine McCann search'
Mr Edgar said the new funding was “totally justified.” He said: “It’s a very delicate case but officers would not have requested extra funding if they didn’t need it. Whether they’ll crack it, it’s impossible to say but everyone hopes there is a positive outcome.
“I think there will be a resolution, it will be something simple like someone talking - a confession is the best hope of a breakthrough.”
A Scotland Yard spokesperson refused to discuss the two leads they are actively chasing, saying: “We cannot give a running commentary while there is an ongoing investigation."
 
The apartment block in Luz in the Algarve, Portugal, where Madeleine McCann went missing 11 years ago
Mr Edgar, who has had more than 30 years experience with Cheshire Police and the Royal Ulster Constabulary, stopped working for theMcCanns when the Met Police came on board in May 2011 on orders of then Prime Minister David Cameron.
He added: “I firmly believe this case will be solved eventually - it is not beyond the realms of possibility.”
Maddie’s eminent heart doctor dad Gerry, 50, said during an emotional BBC Radio 4 interview in September that he dreamed his daughter was still alive and believes they will one day be reunited.
He said: “I just want to hug her, to hold her, to cry - a lot. Never a day goes by when I don’t think of Madeleine."
Ex GP mum Kate, also 50, who is now a part time medical worker, said in a heartfelt 11th anniversary message: “Hope and perseverance remain. We will do whatever it takes to find her. We couldn’t bear for Madeleine to be forgotten or become just a ‘story’. "
