Madeleine McCann: Police request more funds to continue investigation into disappearance


A "very small team" is working the case, Scotland Yard says, as it applies for more money to continue the investigation.

Thursday 2 May 2019 16:53, UK

Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have asked for further funding to pursue "active lines of inquiries".
Madeleine, then aged three, was last seen while on holiday with her parents and her twin brother and sister in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007.

After a Portuguese inquiry into her disappearance foundered, Scotland Yard opened its own investigation, Operation Grange, in 2013, which has so far cost £11.75m.

Every six months, the force must apply for Home Office funding to continue the inquiry.
Last November, a further £150,000 was granted and on Thursday, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick confirmed it had applied for more.

She said: "We have active lines of inquiries and I think the public would expect us to see those through.
"A very small team continues to work on this case with Portuguese colleagues and we have put in an application to the Home Office for further funding."

Madeleine's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, have always pledged never to give up the search for their daughter.
Last year, on the 11th anniversary of her disappearance, the couple used the official Find Madeleine Campaign Facebook page to thank supporters for their "persisting solidarity", saying it "gets harder to know what to say or write" as the years go on.

Four people with who knows how many other 'active' cases on their workload.

The only 'leads' they are pursuing OG wise are memos from the FCO/HO on what they can/can't do next.

What's that old line about the tail wagging the dog?

Here we go again.
Grange remind me of the Old carlsberg lager advert for their customer complaints office;-Empty, no one there, cobwebbed and dusty.
Another 150 K to deflect freedom of information requests for another 6 months is a trifle. It is a pity that it is UK tax payers money that is wasted.
If Parliament were interested, they would request reporting on findings  to date and make this a condition on future  funding

Murder investigations led by Nicola Wall:

Dec 2015 The Gary Scott murder
Trail in July 2016.


August 2017: The Nashon Esbrand murder.

Trail in March 2018
(including kidnap, blackmail, robbery)


Dec 2017: The Iuliana Tudos murder

Trail in May 2018.


May 2018: The Leon Maxwell murder.
Unsolved, enquiries continue.


Maybe there's more cases.

This case needs completely fresh eyes. They need to start from the evidence up and include new interviews and re-examination of the evidence. It is going to take a lot more than another £150000 to achieve this.

There are still active lines of enquiries!

I thought the last throw of the dice was months and months ago so what active lines of enquiries can there possibly be?

Maybe they will use some of the money they will inevitably receive to actually interview the Tapas lot  hahahaha.

As Tony predicted from the beginning Bullocks.

It was the last line in April 2016 when Hogan-Howe answered questions in LBC Radio.
That's more than 3 years ago violin

The Sun is reporting that Portugese newspaper Correo De Mana report states that cops have a new clue/suspect.

Methinks it is a very convenient report since Paulo's new ebook.

Sorry can't paste link.

Maybe there's more cases.

And that's just the SIO! I spoke to a former senior MET detective before who told me at one point he had 30 cases and was in the horrible position of having to focus based on what he perceived to be the cases with the greatest short term risks. And that was before all the cut backs to police numbers. What precedence is Operation Grange really likely going to have on the day to day lives of people under its watch?

In todays CdM can we read they are hunting a suspect in this case.
Maybe Amaral had some inside information when he told us the other day that they are trying to target the German peado who is already in prison.

Portuguese Judiciary Police follows new abduction leads
by Joana Morais   1 hour ago

CM Investigation - Maddie process reopened 12 years later
⇛ More inspectors search for the suspect that may have taken the child
⇛ Over 13 million euros spend so far in the search for the girl

Judiciary follows new abduction lead in the Maddie case

Team reinforced → More inspectors are proceeding with the investigation to the new suspect of having taken the child of the village of Praia da Luz, exactly 12 years ago
Accidental Crime → Parents were constituted as arguidos. The case was then shelved.

by Tânia Laranjo/Débora Carvalho

A new lead and a new suspect - that the Judiciary Police tries to keep in absolute secrecy - have lead to the reintroduction of more means to investigate the whereabouts of the English child, who disappeared exactly 12 years ago, from a resort in Praia da Luz , Lagos. The process, which was sent to the PJ of Porto to be re-evaluated, now counts with the collaboration of a even wider team that still tries to clarify the mystery. This scenario would remove the parents from the equation - that had been constituted as arguidos earlier at the beginning of the case.

The Public Prosecutor's Office also admits that these new investigative lines are strong and can lead to clarification of the process. A 12-year investigation marked by breakthroughs and setbacks. Maddie disappeared in the village where she was staying, from the bedroom where she was with her twin brothers of 18 months.

The alert was given at 10:00 pm by the mother and the Judiciary Police even admitted a scenario of accidental crime. Kate and Gerry Mccann were constituted as arguidos (suspects), the case was later shelved, but later on data emerged indicating the possibility that the child had been abducted.

Now and after a few years without any police investigations being publicly known, the Judiciary is back on the case and admits to be closer to knowing what happened to Madeleine Mccann. Even in an abduction scenario, the authorities have many doubts that the child, that would be 15 years-old today, is still alive.

Maddie's process continues at the DCIAP (Central Department for Investigation and Penal Action) of Portimão

The Public Prosecutor's Office confirms “active lines of investigation”

■ The CM (Correio da Manhã) asked to consult the process and this was granted at first. However, the magistrate has made a new dispatch, in which he does not authorize, since the investigation is "still with active lines of investigation" and its disclosure would be prejudicial.


MORE THAN 12 THOUSAND PAGES

The process has more than 12 thousand pages and 17 volumes and annexes. During the thirteen months of investigation, the Judiciary Police conducted more than two thousand investigative proceedings, heard over 700 people, made close to 500 searches in Praia da Luz and identified more than two dozen suspects.

PJ confirms that the investigation into the Maddie case is "still open"
by Joana Morais   11 mins ago  
The clarification of the Judiciary Police comes as a reaction after news were "made public" this Friday and following the "numerous requests" that the authorities are receiving.

Sky News: "A "very small team" is working the case, Scotland Yard says, as it applies for more money to continue the investigation." Naom_52c898006677c

The Judiciary Police confirms that the disappearance of Maddie McCann is still an open case.

"Given the news that were made public today [Friday] and the numerous requests for clarification on the subject," the Judiciary Police informs that "the investigation into the disappearance of an English child, that took place in Praia da Luz in 2007, remains open, within the scope of an investigation supervised by the Public Prosecutor of Portimão".

Moreover, the PJ informs, that this investigation "has been developed in articulation with international authorities, obeying the rules of judicial and police cooperation, which the circumstances of the situation warrant."

The statement comes after the publication, this Friday, in the newspaper Correio da Manhã of a news report that the Judiciary Police is following new leads related to the abduction of Maddie.

The newspaper also reveals that the PJ inspectors are following a new lead that involves a new suspect, but that the goal is to try to keep the operation in complete secrecy.

Madeleine McCann disappeared from a tourist complex on Praia da Luz in Lagos, Algarve, precisely 12 years ago. She was only three years-old, she would have been four years-old a few days later, on May 12.
