The mystery of Madeleine McCann’s disappearance will never be solved, says a leading crime investigator.

Ex-detective Mark Williams-Thomas, 49, inset, has worked on major missing persons cases.

He says the fact that a single CCTV camera was out of order the night Maddie disappeared means that we will never know what
happened to the three-year-old.

Gerry and Kate McCann last saw their daughter in bed on holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007.

Last year, a Netflix series was released which documented the investigation.

A sum of more than £1.85million was donated by the public and celebrities such as Simon Cowell and Coleen Rooney. It helped to fund a private investigator until Scotland Yard launched its own Operation Grange in 2011.

In his new book Hunting Killers, Mark says: “The abduction of Madeleine McCann is one I’d put into the unsolvable category.

“I believe Madeleine was the victim of an opportunistic criminal whose act was random – she wandered out of the apartment and into the path of this person.

“The case hasn’t been solved simply because a crucial CCTV camera was turned off, meaning that whoever took Madeleine was not identifiable at the scene.”

Referring to Maddie’s parents and siblings, he added: “I’d love to think there could be an end to the case; either Madeleine is returned to Gerry, Kate, Sean and Amelie, or there is some kind of resolution in terms of somebody being convicted for the offence.”

Many people still hope Maddie will be found, but crime statistics show that is very unlikely.

Mark said: “The sad reality is, this far on, the likelihood of Madeleine being alive now is
incredibly slim.

“Unfortunately, in almost every case of stranger child abduction, within the space of 24 hours the child is dead.”

Ah.  The fraudulent MW-T speaks again. (see previous threads for his CV)

He is part of the problem.
He talks of a single CCTV camera being out of order "the night Maddie disappeared"
which immediately forces people to accept
1 That MBM was alive on 3/5/7
2 That she disappeared between 2130 and 2155 on 3/5/7
and so on
NONE of which can be established, and further, the available evidence speaks AGAINST this

And then he launches into his pet theory, for which of course there is not a single scrap, scintilla, jot, iota or tittle of evidence
"“I believe Madeleine was the victim of an opportunistic criminal whose act was random – she wandered out of the apartment and into the path of this person.
“The case hasn’t been solved simply because a crucial CCTV camera was turned off, meaning that whoever took Madeleine was not identifiable at the scene."

Which is brilliant.
He "purports' a theory and then explains immediately why it can never be disproved !

We can now begin to understand why his actual 'service' as a Detective was measured in months, despite what he says in one Version of his CV.

Is mark williams -thomas really that much of a stupid ex-plod, or is he being 'used' to purport and maintain the establishment story, in a feeble attempt to keep the myth of abduction going in the media?
I see that comments are turned off on red-top articles based around his risible piece, as the British public are both weary and wise to this  Mccann B-S

I don't think he is being "used". 
I think he is being PAID.
What Gamble's excuse is I cannot begin to fathom.

Whatever his intent, the man is intelligent.

Early on, I asked him the obvious CATS questions and such on twitter, linking an article for him as context. He responded and seemed perturbed that I asked him without hiding my identity.

Since then, he muted me for asking genuine questions, for example what was on those photos submitted to CEOP early on; and (I should stress, not to presume I was the catalyst, but this was when I started watching) he only responds to what he sees as low hanging fruit now. People he can threaten and belittle. Rarely male interestingly.

With all the St Johnstone links (Very close to Derry - Photos, Eileen's pub, trials and tribulations of Joe Peoples etc), as well the presence of Irish gangs on the South of Spain and Portugal, considering his past, he surely knows more than he lets on. I only wonder to what extent?

Paid to sit on studio sofas and be inconsistent? Nah - he's on a par with Colin Sutton, all wind and wee wee.

Any port in a storm.

Any case is solvable anything could happen in the future long after the case is closed people might come forward and someone within the group might break their silence.

For Paulo Sargento, the thesis that Gonçalo Amaral revealed at first hand to "SP" that the blanket could have been used in a funeral ceremony at the Luz chapel "is very interesting".
 
And he adds: "In reality, when the McCanns went to Oprah's Show, the blanket was mentioned. At a given moment, when Oprah tells Kate that she heard her mention a blanket several times, Kate argued that a mother who misses a child always wants to know if she is comfortable, if she is warm, and added, referring to Maddie, that sometimes she asked herself if the person who had taken her would cover her up with her little blanket (but the blanket was on the bed after Maddie, supposedly, disappeared!!!).

This is the standard of intelligence and investigative reporting which we have learned to accept from the media in general.
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-01-13/uk-journalist-pranked-into-holding-a-drop-bear-during-bushfires/11863942

Bear in mind she was sent specially to report on the situation there.  She is not just some random bimbo. 
She was flown half way round to world to give us valuable insight into the dreadful situation.
Investigating, putting together reports, and then giving them live to camera is her Profession.

'NEGATIVE AND HURTFUL' Madeleine McCann’s parents slam ‘heartless’ ex-cop for saying Maddie will never be found as they ‘still have hope’

Tracey Kandohla

THE parents of Madeleine McCann have slammed a “heartless” ex-cop for saying the missing tot will never been found.

Kate and Gerry McCann said they “still have hope” Maddie will be “found alive” 12 years on from her disappearance in Portugal.

'NEGATIVE AND HURTFUL'

The parents slammed self-styled top crime investigator Mark Williams-Thomas for trying to “cash in” on Maddie’s fate and said his “hurtful” remarks in his new book undermined the committed and ongoing work by cops to find her.
Mr Williams-Thomas believes Maddie fell victim to an opportunistic criminal and mystery has not been solved because a crucial CCTV camera at the Portuguese holiday resort she was snatched from was turned off.

The sad reality is, this far on, the likelihood of Madeleine being alive now is incredibly slim.
Mark Williams-Thomas
He states: “The sad reality is, this far on, the likelihood of Madeleine being alive now is incredibly slim. Unfortunately, in almost every case of stranger abduction, within the space of 24 hours the child is dead.”
The authors' remarks come just a few weeks after the McCann’s of Rothley. Leics, vowed to carry on searching for their daughter.

'NOTHING HAS CHANGED'

Kate and Gerry posted a website message on their 13th Christmas without her: “Nothing has changed…we love her, we miss her, we hope as always. The search for Madeleine goes on with unwavering commitment.”
A family source said: “Now someone who has absolutely no idea what happened to Madeleine is saying she’ll never be found. "This is neither helpful to the Scotland Yard search not respectful to Kate and Gerry. It is heartless.
“They are starting their New Year with hope and positivity and they don't want people pedalling negative and hurtful comments simply to cash in on book sales.

Nothing has changed…we love her, we miss her, we hope as always. The search for Madeleine goes on with unwavering commitment.
Kate and Gerry McCann
“It undermines work the police are doing for which Kate and Gerry remain greatly encouraged by and are extremely grateful for.

“They also say that until a body is found they refuse to give up searching."

Heart doctor Gerry and former GP Kate, both 51, cling onto hope that Maddie - who would now be 16 - could still be alive and being held against her will.

Three-year-old Maddie vanished from a holiday flat in The Algarve’s Praia da Luz on May 2007.

She had been left sleeping along with her younger twin siblings while her parents were dining in a nearby tapas bar with pals.

MADDIE'S CASE 'UNSOLVEABLE'

So far nearly £12million of taxpayers' money has been spent on the painstaking hunt to find her. The couple’s latest round of funding runs out at the end of March.

Mr Williams-Thomas, 49, who was worked on major missing persons cases but never Maddie’s, is convinced her case is “unsolvable”.

In his new book Hunting Killers, the author says: "The abduction of Madeleine McCann is one I’d put into the unsolvable category.

The abduction of Madeleine McCann is one I’d put into the unsolvable category.
Mark Williams-Thomas
"I believe Madeleine was the victim of an opportunistic criminal whose act was random – she wandered out of the apartment and into the path of this person.

“The case hasn’t been solved simply because a crucial CCTV camera was turned off, meaning that whoever took Madeleine was not identifiable at the scene.”

CCTV 'WIPED'

In fact former Portuguese police chief Gonzalo Amaral, who led the original investigation onto Maddie’s disappearance, previously said he believed the suspect was caught on film before it was wiped.

Mr Amaral - who won a bitter and long fought libel battle against Kate and Gerry which they are still trying to appeal in the European Court of Human Rights - reportedly said: “I believe that the person seen carrying a child in his arms was captured on film from that very camera.

I asked my officers to gather all the CCTV footage in Luz but, by the time they got to this hotel, the film from this camera had been wiped over. It was a mistake and I will always regret it.
Gonzalo Amaral
“I asked my officers to gather all the CCTV footage in Luz but, by the time they got to this hotel, the film from this camera had been wiped over. It was a mistake and I will always regret it.

“I do feel Madeleine was let down.”

British officers working with counterparts in Portugal said Apartment 5A at the Ocean Club from where the youngster went missing was the “worst preserved” crime scene ever.

A CCTV camera in the complex was not working. Another camera covering the road from the resort was allegedly never examined.

But the McCann's were also reportedly shown some footage taken from public sites around the area and photos, including a number of known sex offenders.

Maddie’s abduction - the world's most famous missing child case - was highlighted last year in a controversial Netflix documentary which her parents refused to co-operate with.

Mr Williams-Thomas, who at times speaks out on breakfast TV about latest Maddie development, said he wants to see an end to the case - ideally the girl returned home to her family or "some kind of resolution in terms of someone being convicted for the offence.”

Why would the McCann's be hurt by this regurgitated news - it plays right into their hands. So hey you - what's new!

Take a break Olive, you're embarrassing yourself and media standards.
