The missing blanket

Interesting article about the missing blanket.


translation:

Maddie's blanket brings in a new lead.

Kate says that the blanket was taken by the abductors, but the PJ took a photograph of it. Then it disappeared.

When
Kate was interviewed on 26 April last year on the Oprah Winfrey show,
she made an appeal: "I hope that the abductors cover her with her
blanket." The mother of Maddie, who disappeared in Praia da Luz in 2007,
was referring to the pink blanket which 4 year old Maddie slept with
every night. This same blanket was photographed by the PJ on the day
following the disappearance, but it was never seen again. "If the
blanket was there the next day, how was it possible for the abductors to
take it. It is also with this that I will try to get the case
reopened.", stated Gonçalo Amaral, ex-coordinator of the PJ in Portimão.

"There
are many new facts that I will hand over to the Ministério Público and
which I believe to be enough to get this case, which should never have
been shelved, reopened. This is one more detail. We need to know which
blanket was Kate talking about, because the pink one stayed in the
apartment. Now it is missing."

"All of these details will be
presented to a prosecutor (procurador) and I was not able to do this
earlier because the McCanns prohibited me, against the Constitution,
from doing so", he continued.

In a communique, the McCanns'
lawyer accused Gonçalo Amaral of "producing damaging insinuations to
invoke the faults of the investigation", and that Maddie's disappearance
is "an unending source of enrichment through false and offensive
accusations which are prejudicial to the investigation". Amaral defends
himself: "I am speaking and working with facts. I have not become rich
from this case and I find it strange that the parents of a missing child
are only worried about their legal defense in the case and do not want
the truth to be found. They never wanted Justice to work."

WIKILEAKS
One
of the 250.000 diplomatic documents, on the Wikileaks site, revealed
that the British police found evidence against the parents. The new
information could lead to the reopening of the case.

REPORT
In
the communique, the couple's lawyer says that the report done by
Gonçalo Amaral "was incriminating and did not resist its own analysis"
and ended up being shelved after 8 months of investigation. (nota: this
idiot lawyer doesn't know that the final report was written by Tavares
de Almeida and not Gonçalo Amaral.

FUND
Gonçalo Amaral
guarantees to CM that he intends to reopen the case, not to earn money,
but for justice. "It wasn't me who was able to buy a house through a
fund, like the McCanns were able to do.".

I dont know why but this has made me cry, mind you I am hormonal so, Anyway, three reasons the blanket possible was wooshed quicker than a DX article, one is it was used as a shroud, the one act of decency towards Madeleine, or they realised their wad DNA of hers on it because none was found elsewhere or there was DNA that proved her death, maybe fluids...makes me want to weep, especially as my daughter is all excited for Xmas, like all little girls should be, i hope this case is opened and the truth is out soon

It is a shocking thought. Someone else's, and not McCann, DNA.
The shroud option is interesting, but too late surely. JT saw bundleman carrying a bundle wrapped in a blanket. In one of her first versions anyway.

As far as I can see it was Oprah who brought up the subject, not Kate. But what I think is quite significant, is that Kate did not correct her when given the opportunity. I'm betting that Oprah was asked to bring it up for a reason.

Oprah: Well I, you know, I'd read something that said there were times even you know early on after she err went missing that you would say I want I hope that whoever has her gives her her blanket I hope that whoever has her is keeping her warm I hope that whoever has her...
Kate: I mean it's funny, it's you know, I mean as a mum it's things like that you worry about as well you know. Is someone brushing her teeth. Is someone rubbing her tummy when she's not feeling well. You know, it's all those things as a mother you do and you should be doing and...


I'm betting that sometime later the PJ asked the McCann's for the blanket seen on the bed, at which point the McCann's had said they no longer had it? This could be what the PJ meant by the missing blanket.

Why would the McCann's have got rid of it so quickly? Was it really Madeleine's in the first place?, or could it have been a stage prop borrowed from someone else and then given back?

Either way, maybe the real reason the PJ asked for it back was because it might have been a good match to the fibres found in the car, exactly where the bodily fluids were found. Even better, perhaps the blanket fibres found on the bed sheets in 5a, matched the fibres found in the hire car.

If the McCann's could produce the blanket and it's not a match, fine. BUT, if they cannot produce the blanket, it can only mean one thing.

Thoughts of abused, missing or murdered children are always emotional soulthief, perhaps more so at christmas. It is meant to be a magical time, full of love, fun and laughter...alas not for all little souls.

There is also I believe reference to a pink blanket belonging to madeleine being used as a ' target ' scent for the GNR & or the tracker dogs ? ....

I don't have time to look up the report just now but I'm certain it's mentioned

I remember reading somewhere about an orange/pinky blanket somewhere. But there is only one report on Pamalam's site and that one mentions the dogs using a blanket belonging to Madeleine, but it does not mention the actual colour.



13-Processos Vol XIII Pages 3517

GNR Report

Subject: Report of Searches Related to the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann


Annex B ? Report on the Sniffer Dog Search and Rescue Team


1. Methods used

The sniffer dog search and rescue team of the GNR was sent to Vila da Luz in the attempt of locating Madeleine McCann, aged four, of British nationality, who disappeared on the night of 3rd May, from apartment 5 A, Block 5 of the OC resort, the team was composed as follows:


Sargeant Silva ? Dog: Timmy
Officer Cortez ? Dog: Sacha
Officer Sousa ? Dog: Kolly/Cookie
Officer Rosa ? Dog: Oscar
Officer Martins ? Dog: Fusco
Officer Fernandes ? Dog: Rex/ Zarus


II Description

After arriving at the scene, the first three members of the team, the officers gathered some information from the girl?s parents about the places they tended to frequent with the children during their stay in P da L up until now, the parents replied that the only areas that their daughter would frequent since their arrival, was Praia da Luz beach, always accompanied by babysitters and resort pool area, where there was also a playground.

After this, at about 08.00 the three search and rescue sniffer dog teams (Silva with Timmy, Cortez with Sacha and Sousa with Kolly and Cookie) who had arrived at the site, began searching, leaving the resort in the direction of the beach.

During the entire morning, searches were made of the beach and rocks, from Rocha Negra to the area of Ponta da Gaviota (an approximate area of 2 km). During the morning searches were also made of the areas surrounding Praia da Luz, with a radius of about 300 metres, as well as some abandoned houses, wells and plots of land inside P da L.

After an evaluation of the situation in the field, it was decided to request two more search and rescue sniffer dogs from the GNR Queluz station, given the extent of the terrain to be searched, whilst the hypothesis that the girl could have left the apartment on foot was not discarded.

During the afternoon of 4th May, more searches were carried out around Vila da Luz and were extended to a radius of approximately 600 metres, including the surroundings of the EN125 in the stretch closed to P da L.

At about 23.00 the extra teams that had been requested for reinforcement arrived (Officer Rosa with Oscar and Officer Martins with Fusco, both from the search and rescue unit and Officer Fernandes with Rex and Zarus from the tracking team).

After the officers had been updated about facts relating to the disappearance, they tried to reconstruct the route the girl might have taken with the two tracker dogs. For this purpose the dogs were given a blanket to sniff, provided by the parents, which had been used by Madeleine.

Beginning to follow the track using Rex, from the door of apartment 5 A (the place where the girl had been sleeping) he would always head in the direction of Block 4, leaving block 5 the dog would turn to the left, pass by a metal access door to a path existing between the apartments blocks to the leisure area (restaurant, pool and playground). Immediately another attempt at reconstruction was made using the dog Zarus, who, in general terms, ended up following the same route as Rex and having the same behaviour.

It is important to state that this tracking work was carried out in an urban area and more than 24 hours after the girl?s disappearance and numerous persons had passed along the path the dogs were tracking. It should also be stated that the path the dogs followed within the resort was practically totally surrounded by walls and the concentration of odours was stronger as they were protected from the wind. The searches finished at about 01.30

On 5th May at about 08.00 after a briefing, two teams consisting of 3 dogs each accompanied by officers from Portimao, again carried out searches in the whole of the Vila da Luz area, with an approximate radius of 2 kilometres, paying special attention to the rocky areas, abandoned houses, wells, drains, road verges etc..including plots of land within P da L.

During part of the afternoon, searches were carried out in the Turiscampo camping site situated next to Espiche on the EN125 and in the Orbitur camping site next to Vila da Luz. This search operation had the objective of checking all the bungalows whose occupants had left on the day of the disappearance or on the following day as well as the adjacent areas.

During the day the searches were extended using the method of searching in file, accompanied by officers from Portimao, from the P da L area following the rocks up to Ponta da Cama da Vaca, taking in all of the northern zone to the EN125 as well as the village of Almadena, the Vale Verde zone and Quatro Estradas, some of the areas had already been searched more than once.

At about 22.00 all the vehicles parked in Vila da Luz parking spaced were checked.

On 6th May at about 08.00 and after another briefing from the Operational Command Post, it was decided that on that day they would again search all the plots of land with thick undergrowth within P da L, but that this time the search sections were divided amongst the teams. For this purpose the same teams of three dogs together with officers from Portimao who had been selected to help using the method of searching in file, carried out searches in all abandoned buildings, wells, rocks, verges of the EN125 and land surrounding P da L, in some cases reaching distances of 2 km.

On 7th May the same searches were continued, being extended to to the entire northern part of Almadena to the site of Espojeiro and the verges of the EN125 until the Boi valley.

At about 19.. the undersigned officer, accompanied by the Commander, Officer Silva, took part in a meetings with the PJ Directorate, being asked by the PJ about the viability of giving the girl?s clothes to the dogs for the dogs to sniff again, and if by means of the odour inhaled, they would be able to mark an identical odour in one of the resort?s apartments even though its door was closed.

With regard to this task, Officer Silva referred to the fact that the time that had passed would be a crucial condition for the dogs? work in obtaining results and that the entirety of the human odours existing in the apartments and access paths could make the dogs? searches very difficult. However, in spite of not being a normal situation for tracking, it could be attempted, whilst the operation should be carried out as quickly as possible and not directed towards one but to all the apartments in the resort, it being appropriate for the handler not to know which apartment was chosen, so as not the be conditioned.

In this concrete situation, the objective would be for the dogs to carry out a discontinuous search, in other words, to sniff the girl?s clothes and immediately search near to the apartments, checking to see if there was any change in the behaviour of the dogs.

At about 23.00 accompanied by a PJ inspector, the searches were begun. After Rex was given the girl?s clothing to sniff, he began to search on the ground floor of block 5 and when he passed the door of apartment 5 A (the place the girl had disappeared from) according to his handler, officer Fernandes, the dog altered its behaviour, sniffing with greater intensity than he had done before. Apartment 5J of the same block was also checked as the dog had been more agitated than before as if there were a very strong strange odour there. It was stated that this apartment had been unoccupied for some time. Afterwards, the same kind of search was carried out using the dog Zarus which in general terms showed the same behaviour in the same places as Rex had done.

It was only when all the searches of the apartments in blocks 4 and 5 were complete, that the behaviour described above was registered. It is certain that this kind of work does not correspond to the area that these dogs were trained in, but given that these types of dogs manage to discriminate a specific odour from others, although it could be a remote possibility that they related the odour of the missing girl with a possible location where she could have been.

On 8th May during the morning four teams returned to search all the areas around Vila, following some indications from local people who had frequently gone to the GNR Command post saying they had seen something suspicious related to the disappearance but no sign of her presence was ever found.

During the afternoon searches along the verges of the EN125 were continued from Boi valley to Figueira and the whole northern part of Budens.

On the following days the strategy adopted was to continue to extend the perimeter of the searches to the villages of Barao de S Miguel and Burgau, Barao de S Joao, Bensafrim and Salema. Searches were carried out in all of these locations, as well as adjacent land, vegetation, abandoned houses, wells and main roads.

On 10th May at about 20.10, upon the request of the PJ, searches were carried out in all of the apartments belonging to blocks 4 and 5 of the OC, two tracker dogs and two search and rescue dogs being used for this operation, adopting the same methods as those used on 7th May, just that this time the apartments were all open and searched one by one, being accompanied by a representative from the resort, who had the keys to all the apartments (apart from those not under her administration) and also with the objective of helping with the searches. The collaboration of all the guests occupying the apartments at that time was requested for this purpose and those apartments that were found to be empty were opened by the administrator.

All the apartments were searched by the dogs and when they arrived at apartment 5 J they began to sniff with intensity at the entrance door. During this behaviour it was noted by the PJ officers that there must be some unusual odour, but which with all certainty did not have anything to do with the odour being searched for, but there must have been something strange inside.

After entering the apartment, it was observed that the dour came from close to the fridge, which was open and contained some rotting meat and vegetables.

During the searches carried out in the apartments no sign of the girl was found by the dogs.

On 11th May in the morning, the team went to Odiaxere to visit a forest near the Boavista golf course. The whole forest was searched using the in file method, including some abandoned houses, wells and rail track.

After lunch the team was told that the searches were concluded but that their presence in P da L would continue to be necessary according to the requirements of the PJ for any other situations that might occur.

On 15th May three search and rescue dogs returned to Lisbon (Officer Cortes with Sacha, Officer Rosa with Oscar and Officer Martins with Fusco) considering that there was no longer any need for them.


The other dogs and their handlers remained on site until 18th May when at about 19.00 they returned to Cino/EPG as their presence was no longer require in P da L, although it was determined that if their use were required in the future, they would return.

Hi Stella , yes both a towel and blanket were used to get the target scent by the search teams and strangely all resulted in the same trail being followed. What are the odds of 4 dogs I believe, independantly tracking the same scent at different times .

Yes but wasnt it said the body had been hidden and then moved? Maybe the fridge that the forensics originally said the body had been frozen and then when she went to her final resting place she was wrapped in the blanket. makes me sick to think.

yes the festive season really brings the tragedy in this story home for me, I just hope they do not release another home video or unseen pictures in any appeal they may put out, the last video of her dancing around in her new shoes was heart breaking, very hard to watch and remain impassive, I wonder how they can look at these videos but they do..

The blanket story has me really scratching my head.....very odd

When you google the story it comes up with loads of papers reporting this around August/September 2007.

Times onlone 9.9.07
Daily Mail 12.8.07
The Sun 15.9.07
Telegraph 12.9.07

A couple of extracts

Jane Michelle Tanner: 36
[apartment 5D - Ground floor]
She provided the most crucial evidence, saying she saw a man carry a child from the apartment wrapped in a blanket at 9.15pm. She thought nothing of it until the alarm was raised an hour later. Her description of the child's pyjamas matched Madeleine's.

The mother-of-two Ella O'Brien, aged 3 years and Evie O'Brien, aged one year.
She said the man was 5ft 10in tall and aged about 35. Her description of the child's clothing matched Madeleine's pyjamas. Miss Tanner has never publicly discussed what she saw

http://www.gerrymccannsblogs.co.uk/TAPPAS9.htm

[snipped]

saw a man carrying a child rushing from the Ocean Club complex at around 9.15pm on May 3.

Yesterday it was reported in Portugal that a new witness, an unnamed Irishman, told police he was in the same spot as Miss Tanner at the same time and saw no one. He is the second independent witness to dispute her story and police sources said they viewed Miss Tanner’s evidence as “unreliable” because of inconsistencies. Officers are concerned that she apparently changed her version of the sighting.She originally claimed she saw the suspect rushing towards the Baptista supermarket in Praia da Luz. She told police the child was wrapped in a blanket. A second independent witness reported seeing a similar man with a child in a blanket near the town’s church heading towards the beach. The route he took matches the alleged trail of death discovered by British sniffer dogs who detected the scent of a corpse. But Miss Tanner has now told detectives that the man was heading in a different direction – towards Murat’s home. Police regard her account as one of a series given by the McCanns and their friends to convince them that Madeleine had been kidnapped.

Miss Tanner was the key witness who saw a man rushing away from the Ocean Club resort carrying a child wrapped in a blanket.

Loads more in every newspaper.

Most of the articles that mention a blanket are around ~September 2007, so where did this info come from, when clearly in her statement to PJ on 4th May 2007 she says no blanket - and why say without a blanket, why not just a description of what you saw. You wouldn't add what you didn't see.

Jane Tanner's statement to PJ 4th May
The suspicious man.

However, she spotted a man who was going along at a fair speed with a child in his arms with the child in pyjamas without a blanket, which attracted her attention. The interviewee only saw the man from the side with the child in his arms. She noticed this person exactly at the moment when she walked past Gerald and Jez. That person was coming out of the path at the end of the apartment block (1) where they are staying. The man quickly crossed the intersection. The entrance to the building where the apartments are is the exact place where she saw the man. After checking on her children, the interviewee went back to the "tapas." On her way back, Gerald McCann was no longer in the road where she had seen him talking. On her arrival at the restaurant (3) Gerald McCann was with his wife Kate Healy.

http://themaddiecasefiles.com/post412.html#p412



So I wonder why were the papers still reporting this that late on, and why did Jane Tanner or the McCanns not contact the paper to inform them there was no blanket? People would have been looking for a child being carried wrapped in a blanket - what did GM say something like confusion is good. Wouldn't you if you had lost a child contact papers immediately to inform them the story was incorrect and make sure it was put right, in order to help find the child?

And did not one of the stories say that she thought it was a negligent person carrying the child because it was a cold night and it had no covering on its feet, whereas GM said that Madeleine was not covered up in bed, she was outside the blanket and he did not cover her, because it was a warm night.
So which ?
And talking of blankets, where were the bedclothes from the twins travel cots ?

Yes, that's right. I have just been reading JT's statements, and she does say it was a cold night, and she was wearing cropped trousers and flip flops and had borrowed a fleece to wear to go and check, so it must have been pretty damn cold.

Jane Tanner..........

'I DID see Madeleine being abducted,' insists Tapas Nine friend


'I know what I saw': Jane Tanner, pictured here during the interview, is adamant that she saw Madeleine McCann being abductedThe programme will also feature some previously unseen footage of the McCanns talking about Madeleine in the early stages of the hunt for her.
They were filmed by indepedent producer John Corner, a friend of the McCanns and godfather to their two-year-old twins Sean and Amelie.
Describing what she witnessed on the fateful evening of May 3, Miss Tanner said: "Never in a million years did I think it could have been Madeleine. But I didn't know then.
"I just saw a person walk along the top of the road with what could have been a child in his arms."

Why would Dave Edgar say this 13.09.09 when he surely must have read the files?

Dave said: “Jane is a very reliable witness and there were other sightings of this man, who Jane saw carrying a little girl in a blanket, in the days leading up to the disappearance.”

Jane Tanner also states that she was still sat at the table in the Tapas Bar when Kate McCann was talking about the length of time Gery had been away doing the check and even quotes what was said ..... she then goes on to state she left the Tapas Bar aprox. 5 mins after Gerry .

How Dave Edgar can claim she is a reliable witness is beyond me laughat

Well, despite Dave Edgar saying that Jane Tanner was a 'very reliable witness', Dave Edgar said (I think on the same occasion - the Victoria Beckham-lookalike press conference) that it is possible that Jane Tanner might have seen a woman, not a man.

Not one newspaper in the U.K. commented on the utter absurdity of this statement.

P.S. Can I just give a warm welcome to PeterMac who is posting on this thread - PeterMac is an activist who regularly challenges the British press and others about all the obvious contradictions and absurdities in this case, keep up the good work PeterMac

Dr Russell O'Brien does some emergency washing because E___ is sick. He needs to clear up her vomit and give her a quick bath

There was a missing blanket.

There was also this strange tale (from Dr Russell O'Brien's Rogatory) about the washing of some sheets.

I have often wondered if there is some connection between the missing blanket and the washed sheets:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

POLICE ROGATORY OF DR RUSSELL O'BRIEN (EXTRACT)

1578 “So your choice of words ‘pretty dark’ ‘fairly dark’?”
Reply “’Fairly dark’. The only other thing I can remember that we mentioned, I’m just going to see if it’s coming in the next, no, it’s not in here and I think it, I mean, we did mention it on Tuesday but it hasn’t been put here. That, given the amount of stick that, that I’ve had with the Portuguese Press for not requesting any fresh sheets for E**e, I think I’d actually like to point out that the, that this wasn’t some third world, apartment and it did actually have a washing machine. And, we’ve been, they don’t know where it’s come from, but I don’t know whether it is a question that the PJ have particularly done, but, every time I translated to the PJ, the Portuguese Press article, it says that we never requested any, we never requested any further sheets and if they were sick all over them then how could this be true. But it’s quite sort of staggering that eight months later then the fact that there was a washing machine in the building isn’t in there, so I would be very keen for that to be put in please”.
1578 “Okay. So at the end of paragraph?”
Reply “So ‘I told him to go back and tell Jane that E**e was unwell’, I’d obviously cleaned her up and changed her. I think maybe what I would do is I’d say ‘Matt came into my apartment and asked if I needed any help, I said ‘No, go back and tell Jane that E**e was unwell’’ and then, because I don’t think that I would have had time then, it was then I started, ‘I got her out, I gave her a quick wash in the bath, changed her, got the sheet off the cot’, and at least, whether I started the washing machine then, but at least ‘I put them in the washing machine and then sat down with E**e’. But I want it in there that there was a blo*dy washing machine in the apartment”.
01.30.16 1578 “’Gave E**e a quick bath’?”
Reply “Yeah”.
1578 “’Changed her’?”
Reply “’Changed her’ and, MARK WARNER do stretch to cleaning facilities on their holidays, so”.
1578 “’And placed bed linen’?”
Reply “Excuse to sound so cynical, but. ‘And placed’, well I don’t think, I don’t think I necessarily put the, I got the dirty linen and her clothes off and at least I think, there was a few bits of sick and I probably gave them a rinse off in the bath and then just shoved them in the washing machine, whether I started it then or did it later I’ve no idea. But, since we’ve been”.
1578 “’And placed clothing’”.
Reply “Suspicion has been put on us because, we didn’t request any further sheets. I think I’d rather have it in there that”.
1578 “’Into the washing machine’”.
Reply “That even as a man I can use a washing machine, staggering though that may sound. Anyway, enough of that. I think, say ‘Jane came back, we were in the flat together for a number of minutes’, it might be worth adding, so ‘Jane came back having eaten her meal at approximately twenty-one forty’ or something like that”.
1578 “Right. So where are we now then?”

Did she not originally say it was a blanket ? Before she changed direction, description, and almost everything else of course.


Yes she did and this is how we ended up with "bundleman" and in the first artist impression what looks very much like a pink blanket.

One is quite sure we have all had embarrassing or twitchy moments, when we wish we had not said something. However, Tanner and other members of the Tapas 9 must be really rather terrified when they look back at some of the statements they have made

Come, come O'Brien. Your not having requested sheets, is not the only thing which has placed you under suspicion for the length of time you spent away from the dinner table.
