Wouldn't they have said 'Maddie's jammies - man took Maddie' if they had seen anything? What other sentence could be any use?

'Maddy's on little trip' twins told

By Channel 4 News

Updated on 19 September 2007

Kate and Gerry McCann talk to their two year-old twins about missing Madeleine "all the time", the couple said in their first interview since returning home from Portugal 11 days ago.

When asked by the twins where their older sister is, Gerry McCann said they reply: "She isn't here at the moment."

He added: "We talk about Madeleine to the twins all the time. It's not a hidden subject or anything like that. We discuss her all the time.

"There is no attempt to shield them from Madeleine. Questions as and when they arise are dealt with. When we were in Portugal we told them she was on a little trip."

'There are lots of reasons - spiritual, emotional and social - to return to Portugal quite apart from the investigation.'

Kate McCann

Kate McCann, who was named arguido - formal suspect - along with her husband nearly two weeks ago, said she had every intention to return to Portugal.

She said: "There are lots of reasons - spiritual, emotional and social - to return to Portugal quite apart from the investigation," Mrs McCann said.

"Equally we may wish to go back to discuss things with our lawyers and discuss the search for Madeleine with the police, regardless of what is going on at present.

"We will be going back as and when we wish to. We are not seeking to run.

"If a formal request comes through from the police for us to be interviewed, we will comply with it. There's no question of us not going."

Yesterday, the McCanns new spokesman described Kate and Gerry as "innocent victims of a heinous crime".

Clarence Mitchell, a former BBC reporter director of the Central Office of Information's media monitoring unit inside the Cabinet Office said he "had absolutely no hesitation in accepting" the job of respresenting the couple.

Carter-Ruck To Sue Everyone


Media Mayhem - MCCANN MEDIA NONSENSE OF THE DAY - Page 5 Twats210


The UK's most-feared LAW firm Carter-Ruck is to send you a letter telling you to shut it right now or they will have your house.


The lawyers acted after Gonçalo Amaral, Tony Bennett, and millions of bloggers, Twitter and Facebook users willfully ignored a legal bid to suppress information about their clients Kate and Gerry McCann and their decision to ruin everyone who questions them.

One injunction, brought against Gonçalo Amaral who victoriously won an eight year libel battle over his book 'The Truth of the Lie', was reinforced last night after the McCann couple were notified that he was looking for a UK publisher. The family spokesman Clarence Mitchell warned "Beware, our lawyers are watching you!" if he tries to sell his books in the UK.

The McCanns have now decided it would be more beneficial to try and intimidate everyone with a computer.

The injunctions will be posted later this week to everyone in the UK, although Carter-Ruck have also threatened to sue every postman in Britain if strike action affects their delivery.

DHL will be used to deliver injunctions to the postmen, but if anyone from DHL looks at the addresses then they will be sued and its injunctions will be delivered by UPS who will also be sued and have its injunctions delivered by Federal Express.

Senior partner Adam Tudor, said: "I have taken advice from myself and will see absolutely everybody in court later this month. As a precaution, I have also taken out an injunction preventing you from telling anyone that I told you that I would see everybody in court and an injunction preventing you from telling anyone that I told you about the previous injunction. And so on."

He added: "As for Kate and Gerry McCann, our clients have stated consistently that they only ever intended to conceal Madeleine's cadaver, fake an abduction, obtain monies under false pretences, and pervert the course of justice in a perfectly legal way."

Daily Mail journalist, Tracey Kandohla said yesterday: "NHS doctors Kate and Gerry, both 48 from Rothley, Leicestershire, pay for this extremely costly service when needed from the Find Maddie Fund, which is made up of public donations and proceeds from Kate's own autobiography Prosecution Exhibit1 'madeleine' published in 2011."

Furious heart doctor Gerry McCann said: "I am hacked off. I strongly believe in Freedom of Speech for anyone who can afford it but I draw the line when people keep quoting facts from the official Portuguese Police files that Madeleine died in the apartment and we concealed her cadaver. These people need to be made an example of and we have people."

Furious former GP Kate McCann said: "Being a good Catholic I have forgiven the abductor, but this has gone too far now and I want everyone to be miserable and feel fear."

In the meantime, the McCann's government-appointed spokesman, Clarence Mitchell said: "Anyone who wishes to donate to Kate and Gerry's Litigation Fund can send money in an envelope marked 'Kate and Gerry McCann, Rothley' - it will get there, and they will do their utmost to sue you."

A Twitter user said: "OMG, it is outrajus dat da #mccanns cant pay their mortgage wiv the OFM Fund while having to su evry1! Feckin ejits!"

This particular incident was reported by The Mail shortly after the event, as sourced by forum member onehand..

Madeleine: Police to show her parents picture of child snatcher suspect who killed himself

Daily Mail

Last updated at 15:56 07 August 2007

Detectives investigating the possibility that Madeleine was taken by a child snatcher who later killed himself are to show her parents a photograph of the dead suspect.

Urs Von Aesch, 67, shot himself in the head and was the prime suspect in the disappearance of five-year-old Swiss girl Ylenia Lenhard, who went missing last week.

The links between Ylenia and Madeleine are striking - they are only a year apart in age, both are blonde and both are of a similar build and height.

It was reported in the Swiss press that detectives in Portugal are to show his photograph to Kate and Gerry McCann after it emerged Von Aesch was on holiday in the Algarve at the beginning of May, when their daughter was snatched.

Police also believe another man, who was earlier gunned down by Von Aesch, could hold the key to solving the mystery.

Media Mayhem - MCCANN MEDIA NONSENSE OF THE DAY - Page 5 Scre2463

Detectives are keeping a vigil by the hospital bed of the shot man, hoping he was about to blow the whistle on the child abductor before he was gunned down.

Through Interpol, Swiss police informed colleagues in Spain and Portugal after learning that Von Aesch lived near Alicante and was also on holiday in the Algarve when Madeleine disappeared.

Officers in St Gallen in central Switzerland close to where Ylenia disappeared, have also re-opened files on five other girls who disappeared in the area before Von Aesch moved to Benimantell on the Spanish coast.

His wife who is still in Spain has been questioned by detectives and they are also checking the movements of his Spanish registered white Renault van.

Hans Peter Eugster, a Swiss police spokesman, said: "Because of the similarities in both cases and because Von Aesch lived in Spain we have informed Interpol.

"They in turn have passed on the details to both colleagues in Spain and Portugal and they are looking into reports that Von Aesch was on holiday in the Algarve.

"In our case he is the prime suspect in the disappearance of Ylenia and his body was found near to where some of her belongings were found."

Ylenia was last seen a week ago after she went to her local swimming pool at Appenzell in north east Switzerland.

Hours later a backpack was found in nearby woods at Oberburen which contained her cycling helmet and her scooter was also recovered close by.

Twenty-four hours later in the same woods police discovered the body of Von Aesch who had died from a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.

It then reared it's ugly head again in May 2013, around the same time Operation Grange switched remit from inquiry to investigation, once again The Mail and see what a scathing attack against the Portuguese police..

Was Maddie snatched by monster who killed this little lookalike? That's the dramatic new lead uncovered by British detectives so why are the Portuguese refusing to investigate? Daily Mail

   Scotland Yard detectives have a list of 30 potential suspects
   One of them is peadophile and child murderer Urs Hans von Aesch who killed himself in woodland
   Von Aesch murdered five-year-old only five months after Maddie disappeared
   But Portuguese police STILL dragging heels over investigation

By PAUL BRACCHI and STEPHEN WRIGHT
PUBLISHED: 23:46, 24 May 2013 | UPDATED: 13:14, 25 May 2013

Have you seen me? asks the little girl in the poster. The youngster is Madeleine McCann; not the Madeleine we all remember, but Madeleine as she might look today as a ten-year-old.

Her once-blonde hair is darker, the button nose has gone, along with those babyish chubby cheeks, and while the distinctive black 'flash' in her right eye — where her pupil runs into the iris — is still visible, it is not nearly so distinctive.

Behind this latest digitally created picture of Madeleine, now being circulated on the Continent, is renewed hope: that one day Madeleine's parents will find out what happened to her, and so end perhaps the most enduring and haunting mystery of modern times.

That hope, if truth be told, had been all but extinguished, such were the shortcomings of the original Portuguese police investigation into Madeleine's disappearance on the Algarve a few days short of her fourth birthday in May 2007.

Only now, with the intervention of an elite team of detectives from Scotland Yard which has been carrying out a review of the case on David Cameron's orders, has evidence been properly accessed and analysed. It may be six years late, but at least this basic groundwork is finally being tackled.

The 30-strong squad working on the inquiry — codenamed Operation Grange — has identified 20 potential suspects, among them several Britons, as the Mail reported last week.

But who are they?

One of the 20, the Mail has learned, was a notorious paedophile who kidnapped and murdered a five-year-old girl in his native Switzerland less than three months after Madeleine vanished from the Ocean Club resort in Praia da Luz.

Urs Hans von Aesch, 67, shot himself dead after poisoning and sexually abusing Ylenia Lenhard.

Like Madeleine, Ylenia was blonde and blue-eyed. At the time Madeleine vanished, von Aesch was living in Spain, but he had visited the Algarve in the past and was known to have friends there.

Interpol twice contacted the Portuguese authorities about von Aesch, but information supplied by the Swiss about possible links with Madeleine was not followed up because senior officers in the Policia Judiciaria — the Portuguese CID — were wrongly convinced that Madeleine's parents were implicated in their daughter's disappearance.

The 'very urgent' messages from Interpol are there, in black and white, printed in publicly available documents in Portugal.

Unlike the Policia Judiciaria, however, detectives from Operation Grange did rigorously pursue this line of inquiry. Last year, they flew to Switzerland to probe von Aesch's movements. He is still believed to be a 'person of interest'.

Two other convicted child abusers — including one believed to be from Britain — who were on the Algarve at the relevant time, are also understood to be on the Scotland Yard 'list', together with a number of hotel workers and lorry drivers.

Detectives are now 'actively' examining mobile phone traffic in the Praia da Luz area on the day Madeleine was last seen.

Although the Policia Judiciaria had this information at the time of Madeleine's disappearance, they did not find out who the phones were registered to, even though 'cell-site' analysis is now a crucial investigative tool and the catalyst for solving countless crimes.

Had standard police procedures been followed back in 2007, it is conceivable that you would not be reading this article now, for the mystery of Madeleine’s disappearance may have been solved.

Nevertheless, Madeleine's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, are said to be encouraged both by the progress of Operation Grange, and recent events in the U.S., where three women who had been missing for a decade were found alive and well in Cleveland, Ohio.

Kate and Gerry, both doctors,  still refer to Madeleine in the present tense.

'She lives in the village of Rothley in Leicester with her mummy and daddy and little brother and sister, Sean and Amelie,' is how they introduce her on the 'Find Madeleine' website.

'Madeleine is a very happy little girl with an outgoing personality' ... like most girls her age, she likes dolls and dresses (and anything pink and sparkly).'

Madeleine was wearing pink pyjamas, with an Eeyore motif, on the night she was taken from apartment 5a on the ground floor of the Waterside Gardens at the Ocean Club complex.

Her parents were at a tapas bar with friends a few hundred yards away, taking it in turns to return to the flat every 30 minutes to check on the children.

It was Kate who made the final, fateful check at around 10pm. She found the twins were asleep inside but Madeleine's bed was empty, a moment Kate would later relive in her book, Madeleine.

'My heart lurched,' she wrote, 'as I saw now that, behind them, the window was wide open and the shutters on  the outside raised all the way up.  Nausea, terror, disbelief, fear, icy fear. Dear God, no! Please, No!'

Experts will tell you that what happens in the immediate aftermath of a child going missing — the so-called golden hour — is critical. Yet Portuguese police took four days to even issue a description of Madeleine.

All this evidence was later made available to officers from Operation Grange, drawn from the Met's highly skilled Homicide and Serious Crime Command.

Two detectives first visited Praia du Luz in October 2011 and spoke 'informally' to staff at the Ocean Club. Colleagues are understood to have returned there up to ten times over the past two years.

Of particular interest were the numerous holiday flats, some of which were sub-let at the time the McCanns were staying at the resort. They have spoken to residents on the phone in recent months as well as emailing them questions.

'When I spoke to the police they were asking about other crimes happening in the area at the time of Madeleine's disappearance,' said expat Christie Jones, who works for her family's villa management company.

Two private detectives employed by the McCanns, Dave Edgar and Arthur Cowley, have also been interviewed.

'They [detectives from Operation Grange] came to see me late last year about specific people who were of interest to them,' said Mr Cowley, a retired detective sergeant, who lives in Holywell, North Wales.

One of those people, of course — according to a source close to Operation Grange — is the aforementioned Urs Hans von Aesch.

His exact whereabouts when Madeleine was abducted on May 3, 2007 are unclear. He was living near Alicante in Spain with his wife, but border records show that, driving a white van, von Aesch re-entered Switzerland on July 10.

Less than a month later, he used this vehicle to abduct Ylenia as she left her local swimming pool in Appenzell. The day after she vanished, von Aesch was discovered in woodland with self-inflicted gunshot wounds to the head.

Ylenia's bicycle helmet, rucksack and a scooter were found nearby. All of the items contained von Aesch's DNA. Shortly afterwards, the remains of Ylenia were found in a shallow grave in nearby Oberbueren, a 20-minute drive from the spot where she was abducted.

At von Aesch's home in Spain, police seized diaries — in English — revealing his dark sexual fantasies about children and computer discs containing evidence that he had frequently visited child sex websites and forums on the internet.

Swiss police officers were immediately struck by the physical similarities between Ylenia and Madeleine, who had both gone missing within weeks of each other. They alerted Interpol which, in turn, contacted the Portuguese authorities about its suspicions on August 17.

When it did not get a response, it contacted them again on September 3. Again, there was no response, we were informed by sources in Interpol.

We now know why.

Just four days later, on September 7, Kate and Gerry McCann were named as arguidos in the Portuguese investigation. On September 11, police submitted a summary of their case against them to prosecutors.

In his report, Chief Inspector Tavares da Almeida concluded — without a shred of hard evidence — that Madeleine had died in the flat, her parents had hid the body, then faked an abduction and got their friends to lie to the police.

'Kate McCann and Gerald McCann are involved in the concealment of the cadaver of their daughter Madeleine McCann,' he wrote.

Could a police officer have made a more catastrophic misjudgement?

Meanwhile, Ylenia Lenhard's heartbroken mother Charlotte believes her daughter was not von Aesch's only victim.

'I am convinced that my little girl was not the only one,' she told the Mail. 'I simply cannot believe that a man, at the age of 67, suddenly chooses to become a killer. It was in him all the time and I am certain he has struck before.'

Indeed, after von Aesch's death, Swiss police re-opened inquiries into the disappearance of five girls who disappeared from the area in the Eighties, before he moved  to Spain.

These include five-year-old Sarah Oberson, whose neat features and bobbed-hair are also reminiscent of Madeleine McCann, and who went missing in September 1985 when cycling to her grandmother's house 50 meters away; doe-eyed seven-year-old Loredana Mancini, who vanished in April 1983 and was found dead in September of the same year: and eight-year-old Rebecca Bieri, who disappeared in March 1982 and was found dead five months later.

The police were unable to prove links between von Aesch and the missing girls.

Under Portuguese law, a case can be reopened only if there is  new evidence.

Yet the senior Scotland Yard detective who oversaw the two-year-review of the evidence before he retired says it is 'perfectly probable' that information that could identify the suspect responsible for Madeleine McCann's disappearance was already in the  Portuguese files.

'Of course, there is a possibility she is still alive,' said former Detective Chief Superintendent Hamish Campbell. 'But the key is to investigate the case and, dead or alive, we should be able to try to discern what happened.'

It is the very least Kate and Gerry McCann, indeed any parent of a missing child, deserves.

Are the parents of Madeleine McCann still together? Where are her siblings now?

It's been 15 years since the toddler went missing

The disappearance of Madeleine McCann turned her family’s world upside down – but where are her siblings and parents now?

Tomorrow (May 3) marks 15 years since the tot disappeared.

She was just three years old when she went missing from an apartment in Portugal in May 2007.

Where are Madeleine McCann’s siblings now?

Twins Sean and Amelie were only two years old when their sister Madeleine disappeared in Portugal in 2007.

The pair were sleeping when their sister went missing.

Now 17, they live with their parents at their home in the town of Loughborough in Leicestershire.

The twins have stayed out of the spotlight since their sister disappeared for their own privacy and safety.

They have their own friends and they keep busy and they’re really sporty.

However, their mum Kate has revealed that they are both aspiring athletes.

Speaking in the past to promote her charity Missing People, Kate said: “They have their own friends and they keep busy and they’re really sporty but their only wish is for their big sister to come home.

“We miss our complete family of five.”

Are the parents of Madeleine McCann still together?

Yes, Madeleine McCann’s parents Kate and Gerry are still together.

Kate and Gerry are both physicians who met while working as junior doctors the Western Infirmary in Glasgow.

Over the years, the pair have faced a lot of backlash for their actions but they have never given up on their search to find their daughter.

While they never actually split up, Kate has spoken up about how close their relationship came to breaking point.

In her book, Madeleine, Kate explains: “Tortured as I was by these images, it’s not surprising that even the thought of sex repulsed me.

“I worried about Gerry and me. I worried that if I didn’t get our sex life on track, our whole relationship would break down.”

However, she also recalled how supportive her husband was throughout it all.

She said: “He would put his arm around me, reassuring me and telling me that he loved me.”

Good reporting!
Unless they have sold up and moved they live in Rothley.
Some way south of Loughborough, with the villages of Quorn and Mountsorrel in between.

The twins were only two years old when Madeleine McCann 'disappeared', they would only have scant memory of their sister, if any memory at all.

If either or both the twins have expressed such an emotion it can only be because it's been instilled in their memories, by their parents!

Tantamount to child cruelty.

The parents McCann asked for the privacy of their two remaining children, the twins, to be respected..

McCann twins pick up the phone every day to ask 'Where are you Madeleine?

Updated: 15:49, 28 April 2008

Madeleine McCann's little sister and brother pick up the telephone every day to ask 'Where are you?', their grandmother has revealed.

Gerry McCann's mother Eileen described how twins, Sean and Amelie, now three, are a constant heartbreaking reminder for their parents because they still ask for Madeleine every single day.

Mrs McCann, 67, also praised Kate McCann for struggling to give her two other children a normal life but admitted this was simply not possible with Madeleine still missing.

The retired book-keeper said: 'Kate and Gerry don't have to remind their twins that Madeleine is no longer there, because they ask where she is all the time.

'They pick up the phone to speak to her and ask 'Where are you?'

She adds: 'Kate is a very capable mother. She is trying to keep life normal for the twins. She tales them to playgroups twice a week. But they are just not a family unit without Madeleine.'

Gerry's mother insists she was always certain Madeleine, then three, was abducted from the couple's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in the Algarve.

She told the Sun: 'Somebody came into Maddie's room, carried her out in her pyjamas and we just don't know where she is. It's the stuff of nightmares. Whoever did this is a monster.'

Her comments came as it emerged the McCanns are planning to write a book about their 'year of hell' without their daughter.

Publishing sources say they could be paid up to £1million.

The couple's spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, stressed they wanted to raise money for the dwindling Find Madeleine appeal and to counter a campaign of smears by Portuguese police.

Several publishers have approached them and there is every possibility of a bidding frenzy.

Last week it emerged that the former head of the Madeleine investigation, Goncalo Amaral, has written a book about the case with the working title The Truth of the Lie.

Insiders said it will contain 'explosive' details about the police inquiry and the decision to name the McCanns as official suspects, or arguidos.

Mr Mitchell confirmed that Mr McCann, 39, had talked to one publishing house and been approached by several others.

He said: 'The idea of writing an official book at some point is appealing. It's a legitimate way of raising money for the fund but would also give them a chance to put across their side of the story, and to talk about some of the wider issues.'

Scott Pack, former head of buying for Waterstone's, said: 'A book could go for a million. There is a feeling that we know everything there is to know about this story but the public are still fascinated.'

But publisher Patrick Jenson-Smith said it could be difficult to sell 'a story without a conclusion'. The McCanns have considered a series of ways to fund their continuing search for Madeleine, who disappeared from their holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, almost a year ago.

The little girl, then three, had been left with her two-year- old twin brother and sister while their parents went out for dinner nearby.

The couple suffered a public backlash when it emerged that their representatives had begun negotiations with the giant IMG entertainment agency over selling the film rights to their story. There were also discussions on bids from the Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Walters U.S. TV shows.

The McCanns, of Rothley, Leicestershire, are desperate to raise money for the Find Madeleine fund amid fears that £1.2million raised in donations from the public will run out within months.

The independent television production company Mentorn Media has made a £10,000 donation to the fund in return for the couple's cooperation with a two-hour documentary to be shown on ITV1 on Wednesday.

In the film, GP Mrs McCann, 40, speaks of her renewed hope that Madeleine is still alive but admitted that sometimes she was ' desperate' and considered giving up.

She said: 'It is pure torture to deal with and it has been a long year of hell.

'You have days when you're so down and desperate and tired. You think you've got to switch off and think, okay, we've tried really hard and we've come up with nothing and now we need to make the best of what we've got.

'We're never going to hit that day. It doesn't matter how small the possibility is [of Madeleine being found alive], the possibility is still there.'

Mrs McCann also told how their twins Sean and Amelie, now three, used their toy phones to try to 'call' Madeleine and played games where they try to find her.

Well, Kate is a 'very capable mother', as we know. Her singing to the Pussycat Dolls, with a three year old daughter is a good example.

And allowing a man outside the familial circle (Uncle Dave) to bath her children - apparently !?!

When I was at school, after physical acitivities, I would never allow the sports tutor near my naked body - it was intuitive, even when a teenager.

What hope for a very small child?

They were so into each other ....

5 years since the disappearance of Madeleine McCann

A sex offender imprisoned in Germany is the latest official suspect in the search for the three-year-old, who would now be 18

Tereixa Constenla
Praia da Luz - May 07, 2022 - 00:46 GMT+1

Kate and Gerry McCann, the parents of the then three-year-old Madeleine who disappeared one night in the resort town of Praia da Luz in Portugal’s Algarve region on May 3, 2007, have not stopped looking for their daughter.

“Even though the possibility may be slim, we have not given up hope that Madeleine is still alive and we will be reunited with her,” the two recently wrote on their website findmadeleine.com.

In Praia da Luz today, there are no longer signs about searching for Madeleine. Tapa’s, the restaurant where the McCanns and their friends were dining when the toddler went missing, is now called Izakaya.

The investigation was re-opened in 2020 when the Portuguese Prosecutor’s Office received evidence pointing to Christian Brückner, a German who had been previously convicted of a rape in Algarve. Portuguese police had investigated and ruled out Brückner in 2007, but this week declared the 44-year-old an arguido – an official suspect under Portuguese law.

Brückner, currently incarcerated in Germany, is back in the spotlight due to his presence in Praia da Luz the night of the event and his history as a sexual aggressor.

According to Rui Gustavo, a journalist for Portuguese weekly Expresso: “The evidence they have is that his cell phone was activated near Praia da Luz that night and that a witness heard him boast that he knew about the disappearance of the girl.”

“It is merely circumstantial evidence, they need to have more if they want to convict him in court,” said the reporter, who specializes in judicial and police information.

German agents have interrogated the suspect, and ordered analysis of DNA remains found in the van he drove while in Algarve.

In 15 years, Brückner is the fourth arguido. The first was Robert Murat, who started out as an informal collaborator of investigators in 2007 - translating for the police and helping search efforts - before becoming suspect number one.

His Praia da Luz chalet is now a skeleton, having been thoroughly dug over in the search for Madeleine’s body.

Murat left Algarve and settled in the UK. He declined an interview for this newspaper. On the Netflix series The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, he tells the cameras he was pressured by the Portuguese police to admit his guilt. When he was finally released due to lack of incriminating evidence, he was traumatized: “I would lock myself in the dark at home, wanting to die. It was hell on earth.”

The disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine was an international event. Within two weeks of her disappearance, more than 25,000 people from around the world had sent messages of support. The writer J. K. Rowling and the businessman Richard Branson, among others, offered more than €4.5 million euros in rewards. The residents of Praia da Luz (numbering a little more than 4,000 in the low season and 20,000 in the summer) turned out to search for and shelter the McCanns, who attended mass at the Nuestra Señora de la Luz church, strolled along the beach and appeared before the press on a daily basis, with Kate McCann clinging to her daughter’s favorite cuddly toy, a pink cat.

The Portuguese investigation, which was led by the Judicial Police inspector Gonçalo Amaral, then turned its attention to Kate and Gerry McCann, declaring the parents to be official suspects and accusing them of hiding their daughter’s accidental death and simulating a crime.

Amaral, who ended up leaving the police force, wrote several books related to the investigation and clashed in court with the McCanns over the content of the first, “The truth of the lie”. Fifteen years later, by email, he says the investigation did not have declared arguments for possible parental negligence.

On the night of May 3, 2007, the McCanns and other friends were having dinner at Tapa’s while their young children slept alone in the apartments. Every once in a while someone got up to go check on them. In the police investigation, doubts were raised about the chronology of these visits.

Today, from the restaurant you can partially see the façade of apartment 5A, which this week was occupied by tourists. The person in charge of the restaurant refuses to speak with EL PAÍS, in a reflection of the general weariness felt towards the media in Praia da Luz.

Here. universal sympathy for the McCanns has also long since disappeared. “I don’t say it easily, but, for me, they are to blame,” said real estate agent Samuel Diogo.

Certainly the sentiment against the McCanns was strong, and well fuelled by the tabloid press. Headlines like ‘Police suspect Gerry is not Madeleine’s father’, ‘Maddie’s body in parent’s car’ appeared amidst speculation that the girl died due to an accidental overdose of a drug intended to make her sleep.

After being declared arguidos, the McCanns hired lawyer Rogério Alves, who told this newspaper by phone that the police theory of the parents’ culpability was convenient for authorities, saying “that theory is unfounded and has been disproved,” and that it offered a solution for police who were coming up with nothing.

The McCanns are doctors, have good networks, and receive a lot of money in donations to fund the search, which also feeds grudges. One of their patrons is the Scottish millionaire Brian Kennedy, they have hired detective agencies and communications specialists, and been received by Pope Benedict XVI. The London police investigation alone has cost more than €13 million.

Meanwhile, Praia da Luz, once known as the place where Paul McCartney spent the summer, is now perhaps forever associated with the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Why Does Madeleine McCann Continue to Be a National Obsession?


Alice Standen
July 30, 2020



It’s been over a decade since Madeleine McCann went missing in Portugal. However, the McCann case is still ongoing and continues to earn global media attention, in spite of the fact that someone is reported missing every 90 seconds in the UK. Disabled people, as well as people of color, are among those more likely to go missing than the average person but seem to be less likely to hold the attention of the public for a few months, let alone several years. So, why do missing posters seem to be plastered with white, middle-class, able girls?

Madeleine McCann is one of the most famous cases of missing children and shook the entire world at the time of her disappearance. Even thirteen years later, everybody recognizes the iconic photo of the blonde toddler staring directly into the camera. When it first happened, the McCann case was all over the news than in the way that coronavirus is now, (you couldn’t move for hearing about it), and every few years the story seems to rear its head again. If nothing else, the McCanns have been persistent in the search for their daughter.

People have been critical of the media attention garnered by Madeleine McCann, as she is one of the biggest examples of what is called “missing white woman syndrome”. This is a phenomenon in which white women and girls from middle-class backgrounds receive the most media attention. It’s nearly always a white face on the side of milk cartons.

Disabled people, as well as people of color, are among those more likely to go missing than the average person but seem to be less likely to hold the attention of the public for a few months, let alone several years. So, why do missing posters seem to be plastered with white, middle-class, able girls?

People of color are overrepresented in missing statistics and equally underrepresented in the media: sociologist Zach Sommers found black victims received disproportionately less news coverage than white ones. Cases often fly completely under the radar, such as the murder of Stephen and Stoni Blair, who were missing for three years before their bodies were uncovered in their very own homes. Such cases demonstrate the lack of urgency and attention when black kids go missing. Comparisons have been drawn between the abductions of Elizabeth Smart and Alexis Patterson, for example. The former (white) attracted national attention and ended up being found, while the latter (black) did not and is still missing to this day.

The shocking truth is that some children, especially those from marginal backgrounds, just slip through the cracks in the system. Activists have tried to bring attention to this issue, such as through the #MissingDCGirls in 2017. Even those who do get media attention are often portrayed differently, focusing on the victim’s problems, such as troubled pasts or abusive boyfriends, or are seen as hopeless cases. Relisha Rudd was eight years old when she went missing in 2014 and claims from authorities that nothing could be done to prevent her disappearance have been rebutted. She received little coverage because she was black and from an impoverished family but is believed to have been taken by an employee at DC General Shelter, where she lived.

It’s also interesting to note how rarely we see disabled people making the headlines. According to the Missing People Research Project, nearly one-third of missing people have some kind of intellectual disability. This would suggest that disabled people would be prominent among missing persons we hear about but that just isn’t the case- there are only two well-known instances.

Many factors can play into why disabled people are so likely to go missing: disabled people are more likely to struggle with a mental illness, have problems with the law, or be homeless. Disabled people of color are even more likely to go missing, as they are part of both risk groups.

Law enforcement is likely to see disabled adults as ‘dependable’ and therefore do not see it as ‘critical’ that they are found, unlike if a disabled child were missing. In the case of Zachary Briary, who went missing in 2016, police declared him “voluntarily missing” because he was living independently from his parents. State laws like this are intended to protect the rights of disabled adults, only allowing limited intervention by parents, which means that they are allowed to make their own decisions- even if they are “bad decisions”.

This is a double-edged sword: although it protects the rights of disabled adults and their control over their own lives, it also makes it difficult for them to be found. How can you tell the difference between a disabled adult who has chosen to quietly move away from their overbearing parents and one who has been abducted by a dangerous individual?

Police assumptions about disabilities can also affect cases. For example, Nora Anne Quoirin, who went missing in 2019, was classified as a missing person case rather than an abduction by the police. Similar to Briary’s case, it was suggested she had climbed out of her window herself. However, her parents argued this was impossible as Quoirin was disabled: she had limited mobility and was dependent on her family, meaning it would be very out-of-character. Her body was later found unclothed and the post-mortem found that she had died of starvation.

While these two cases made headlines, disabled people rarely do. As mentioned before, usually only white middle-class girls make the front page – unfortunately, “able” should also be added to that list. To bring it back to Madeleine McCann, one of the most famous examples of this phenomenon, it’s worth considering why certain missing people become a national obsession while others fade into obscurity.

The main reason the white middle class can make front pages is simply that they can afford to; Gerry McCann spoke about ‘marketing Madeleine’ to keep her in the public eye, which is part of the reason her face was absolutely everywhere after her disappearance. Her parents were also able to earn money from books published about the case. But families who don’t have the funds or capability to put in this amount of effort aren’t able to secure the same awareness. If Relisha Rudd’s mother couldn’t afford anywhere to live, how would she fund an international campaign?

But it isn’t just the McCanns who have invested a lot of money into their case. As of 2018, over £11 million had been spent looking for Madeleine. In contrast, it is estimated that £2,415.80 is spent on a medium-risk, medium-term case. So, when taking into account how much is usually spent by police on a missing person’s case, the amount spent on Maddie McCann certainly seems disproportionate and suggests that she is somehow ‘more important’ than other missing children.

This is likely due to a combination of institutional racism, classicism, and ableism. Like in most media, being white is portrayed as ‘relatable’ and ’universal’ so viewers are expected to sympathize more with ‘blameless white girls’. Whereas black children are more likely to be viewed as troublemakers or their families may be seen as playing a role in their disappearance – Sophia Juarez went missing around the same time as McCann but it was theorized that her own father had kidnapped her, playing into stereotypes people hold about Hispanic people.

Similarly, those from impoverished families are usually seen as being victims of their own backgrounds, (living in ‘more dangerous areas’), and parents are blamed for being ‘bad’ or ‘lazy’. Meanwhile, disabled people just seem to be invisible or expendable in the eyes of the media, and even being abducted isn’t enough to make the nation see us. While there’s no one reason why certain cases are headline news, general trends suggest it helps to fit the typical depiction of a ‘damsel in distress’ and for parents to be wealthy and well-respected by the community.

Obviously, it’s not fair to say that black or disabled children are never headline news. The case of Victoria Adjo Climbié, who was abused and murdered by her mother, received great attention in the UK and is still remembered two decades after it occurred. Similarly, Nora Anne Quoirin disappeared in similar circumstances to Madeleine McCann and received a lot of publicity- however, it’s unclear if this would’ve continued to dominate headlines in the same way as McCann, since Quoirin’s body was eventually uncovered. But these examples are outliers.

I do hope the McCanns ultimately get the closure they need regarding their daughter, especially since they’ve stopped at nothing to get it. However, one missing child shouldn’t be more important than millions of others.

This 'missing white woman' was three years old. And the 'obsession' is because most people know , know, where the blame for her disappearance lies.

FATHER'S DAY? I CAN'T EVEN BEAR TO THINK ABOUT IT WITHOUT MADELEINE

HEARTACHE OF BRAVE DAD GERRY

By Rachael Bletchly
17 June 2007

ANGUISHED Gerry McCann is steeling himself for a Father's Day nightmare today without his precious daughter Madeleine.

He said he "couldn't bear" to mark the occasion or even think back to how he spent the day last year - cuddling the toddler who was abducted 45 days ago.

Gerry and wife Kate have been spending Sundays at a zoo with their twins Sean and Amelie since Maddie, four, went missing from their Portuguese holiday flat.

But this week they took the two-year-olds a day early - to avoid bumping into other families celebrating Father's Day.

Gerry and Kate, 38, plan to spend today dreaming up new ways to spread their daughter's name round the world.

Heart surgeon Gerry, 39, said: "I know it's Father's Day but I haven't thought about it. I can't think about last year and how we spent it.

"I can't really think about anything other than how we can try and get Madeleine back."

Gerry was speaking after a letter to a Dutch paper claimed Maddie was buried on wasteland nine miles from where she was snatched in Praia da Luz.

But a police hunt drew a blank on Friday. Gerry said: "It was terrifying - the thought of a very public search with Madeleine coming out of it dead was extremely upsetting.

"I don't know if the letter was a hoax but it was a relief when nothing was found."

The parents, from Rothley, Leics, are planning a new publicity event for Friday.

Gerry said: "It will be the 50th day Madeleine has been missing - IF she is still missing.

"We are going to release 50 balloons with her image on them in 50 countries." Gerry told how the family was standing firm despite the heartache.

He said: "Kate and I are doing OK considering what we are going through.

"We haven't argued at all and we have a strong relationship.

"I could see how this could tear people apart but that hasn't happened to us."

Gerry added: "We are still thinking about going back to the UK but Kate is adamant about staying at the minute.

"I don't want to go home either - we feel protected here.

"But in the future if Madeleine is not found, it could be more efficient to be in the UK."

Gerry revealed they plan to appoint a professional campaign manager this week.

He said: "There is still a huge demand for information from people back home and we want to keep the interest focused on how to help the search for our daughter. What shines through is the huge goodwill from everyone.

Of course they want a little four-year-old girl reunited with her family - why wouldn't they?

"It has clearly hit a nerve.

Every parent, every brother and sister can understand what it would be like."

The McCanns have posted a new set of photos on their website - 
[ltr]www.findmadeleine.com[/ltr]
 - accompanied by Bryan Adams' No1 hit (Everything I Do) I Do It For You.

The song begins: "Look into my eyes - you will see what you mean to me. Search your heart, search your soul, and when you find me there, you'll search no more."

A pal told The People last night: "Family and friends said the lyrics seemed to encapsulate what Gerry and Kate are feeling as parents more exactly than any other song.

"So we contacted the publishers - who said of course we could use it."

People in Liverpool are helping to promote the continued search for missing toddler Madeleine McCann.

A thousand messages of support attached to helium balloons will be released later by Madeleine's grandparents Sue and Brian Healey.

The 4-year-old's grandparents live in the Mossley Hill area - Madeline's mum Kate grew up in the city.

The four-year-old was snatched from her bed while on holiday in Portugal's Praia da Luz resort on 3 May.

The local community want to show support for the appeal.

Failed search

The balloons will cost a pound to sponsor and all money will go to the Madeleine appeal fund.

The Chief Constable of Merseyside Police - Bernard Hogan Howe will lead the release of balloons on the highest point of Liverpool inner city on Mossley Hill Field at 1400 BST.

Portuguese police conducted a search of scrubland nine miles from where Madeleine went missing after a Dutch newspaper published a letter which claimed her body was under rocks there.

Officers failed to recover anything and that line of inquiry has now been discarded.

She told the court that Sean heard about Amaral's allegations on the radio while travelling on the school bus. "Sean asked me in October: 'Mr Amaral said you hid Madeleine.' I just said that he said a lot of silly things," she said."

Jenny Murat: Kate McCann printed such awful things about my Robert in her Madeleine book

A MOTHER whose son was wrongly linked to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann has hit out at the way he is portrayed in a best-selling book about the mystery.

By JAMES MURRAY
00:00, Sun, Dec 2, 2012


Media Mayhem - MCCANN MEDIA NONSENSE OF THE DAY - Page 5 361930_1
Robert Murat's mother Jenny


Briton Robert Murat was cleared of any involvement in the case four years ago but Kate McCann’s book Madelaine, about her missing daughter, has brought back painful memories for Jenny Murat, 76.
Having seen the McCanns’ suffering at the hands of the British press highlighted in last week’s Leveson report, she is anxious to stress her son’s total innocence.


She and Robert had hoped their nightmare would end in 2008 when he won £600,000 damages from British newspapers, but last night at her home on the Algarve, Mrs Murat spoke of how still the “tragedy consumes us, day in, day out”.


The widow and former nurse said: “Kate of all people should know what it is like to be wrongly accused, so how can she be comfortable repeating wrong allegations about my son in her book?”
In the book published last summer, Kate wrote: “Two officers talked openly about Robert Murat, who remained an arguido [suspect] and drip-fed us snippets of ‘evidence’ linking him to Madeleine.”


How can she be comfortable repeating wrong allegations about my son in her book?
Jenny Murat

However, later in the book she writes: “Nothing we were told by the police indicated Murat took Madeleine or was in any way involved in her abduction.” Mrs Murat argues: “Surely it would have been wiser not to mention the allegations from the outset if there was ‘nothing relevant’.”


The police spotlight fell on Robert 11 days after Madeleine vanished from the McCanns’ holiday apartment in Praia de Luz, Portugal in May 2007.


Mrs Murat said: “Robert was at my home throughout that night and thankfully that is now fully accepted as fact. He did not leave once.”


She feels Robert, too, should have been called to give evidence to the Leveson inquiry.
She explained: “Again we were denied an opportunity to put our side of the story. Robert was the subject of a most disgraceful character assassination, yet was not even invited to contribute to the debate. His life has been hugely damaged. This tragedy consumes us, day in, day out.


She added: “Kate’s book and the resulting publicity did not help. I do feel sympathetic towards the McCanns and obviously wish they could find their daughter. We can’t fathom the hell they must go through but they seem oblivious to the impact all this has had on our lives and the lives of others.
“We tried our best to help, but have ended being pilloried and abused and still it goes on.”


Mrs Murat, now working on her own book about the case, added: “I am sick of all the half-truths and innuendos, so I do want a full and accurate record of the truth. It is important that our story is told.”

Police re-interview McCann friends

Wed Jul 11 2007 - 01:00

Three close friends of Madeleine McCann's parents are among people being interviewed by police in Portugal today as part of the investigation, a friend said.

Detectives from the Policia Judiciaria (PJ) want to speak to Rachael Oldfield, Russell O'Brien and Fiona Payne to go over their accounts of the events of May 3rd, when Madeleine was abducted from her parents' holiday let in the Algarve.

The McCanns were having dinner with a group of friends from the UK in a tapas restaurant opposite the apartment in the village of Praia Da Luz when the four-year-old was snatched.

Police have already interviewed the party in detail including one woman — who has not been named — who saw a girl being carried away by a man in Praia Da Luz and now believes it was Madeleine.

A spokeswoman for the McCann family said that the three were due to be reinterviewed at the PJ headquarters in Portimao from around 11am today.

Meanwhile Robert Murat, the only official "arguido" or suspect in the case, was called back for a second day of questioning. He was seen entering the PJ headquarters at around 10.30am today.

It is thought that among things he is being interviewed about is an e-mail which reportedly mentions "the missing English girl".

However Mr Murat's interest in Madeleine's disappearance is well known. He lives just a short walk from where she was snatched, has a daughter the same age and volunteered his services to help police investigating the case with translation.

Mr Murat (33) was thrown into the spotlight on May 14th, 11 days after the four-year-old from Rothley, Leicestershire, was snatched. Officers from the PJ swooped on Casa Liliana, the villa in which he lives with his mother Jenny, searching the villa extensively and taking several items away for analysis.

His girlfriend Michaela Walczuch and her estranged Portuguese husband Luis Antonio were also interviewed as witnesses and are among those also expected to be reinterviewed this week.

'Lives at risk when the colour of a vanished face doesn't fit the national news agenda'

The shocking case of Owami Davies from Essex highlights the continued unwillingness to focus on missing Black people, a concerned Darren Lewis says

Media Mayhem - MCCANN MEDIA NONSENSE OF THE DAY - Page 5 Scre2653

I’m old enough to remember, in 1978, the distressing ­disappearance in Devon of 13-year-old Genette Tate.

Also the vanishing of London estate agent Suzy Lamplugh in 1986.

It is also nearly 20 years since Blackpool teenager Charlene Downes went missing on the night of Saturday, November 1, 2003.

As recently as two years ago, police were urging anyone with information to come forward.

North Yorkshire police are also still hunting for York chef Claudia Lawrence who disappeared in March 2009.

And the hunt for Madeleine McCann goes on, 15 years after the three-year-old went missing from her family’s holiday apartment in Portugal.

All of these cases led the national news agenda.

Rightly so. To this day there are loved ones still devoting their lives to the search for clues and for answers.

Even ahead of the upsetting conclusions to the disappearances of Libby Squire in 2019 and Sarah Everard two years later, we were all repeatedly flooded with appeals and asked to remain vigilant. We wanted to help.

Sarah in particular continues to lead important conversations around the safety of women.

Which makes the glacial pace of the search for Owami Davies, a Black woman from Essex, all the more concerning.

The 24-year-old student nurse has now been missing for six weeks, yet the average person wouldn’t know who she was.

My Daily Mirror colleague Melissa Sigodo is one of a handful of national reporters actively pursuing the case.

Too few others are.

Melissa has done a fine job ­highlighting the questions that have led to the ­Independent Office of Police Conduct investigating the handling of the case.

Officers had contact with Owami on July 6, the day she was reported missing. Their body-worn cameras show her looking dishevelled.

Why was all this not visible on the official missing person ­database until the next day?

And why on earth was the wrong picture used in the police appeals to find her? That is simply unforgivable.

Mina Smallman is the mother of Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman – the murdered women whose bodies were found in a park in North West London two years ago.

Once details of the police’s shoddy handling of that case emerged there was a ­stampede to speak to her.

But Mina called out the unwillingness to help her find her daughters in the first place. “It wasn’t because I didn’t do interviews,” she said. “It was because they didn’t get the airtime.

Carol Morgan, mum of murdered student midwife Joy Morgan, was ­similarly uncompromising over the lack of help she received when her 20-year-old daughter vanished three years ago.

“Why wasn’t my Black Rastafarian face on the TV doing a press conference sitting with police officers on either side?” She asked. “It’s because I was Black and I wasn’t newsworthy.”

Jebina Islam, sister of murdered primary school teacher Sabina Nessa, maintains her loved ones would have had more widespread support had they been a “normal British white family”.

In America they have a name for it: “Missing White Woman Syndrome”, a phrase coined by the late, highly-respected news anchor, Gwen Ifill.

It isn’t particularly comfortable to read or hear – nor should it be. But it remains fact. Because the cases you’ve read here are a tip of the iceberg.

There are more – far, far more.

Black people on both sides of the Atlantic now use social media to spread awareness when they need the support denied to them by police and some sections of the media.

Their loved ones’ lives depend on it.
