Chapter 2 - Abduction?


As the hours pass, the groups of volunteers continue to search the area. The resort is unprotected from strangers; apart from the central leisure area, which is gated, the buildings have no porter or security that guard it from strangers. As time goes on, the possibility of an abduction grows stronger over the possibility that the child could have wandered away on her own and suffered an accident.

In the early morning, the PJ inspectors call in reinforcements from GNR, with sniffer dogs.

Meireles is now convinced that this is an abduction, and that only a request for a ransom would yield more information. If the abductor didn't make contact soon, the outcome of the case looked grim.

In the CID in Portimao, data is being collected and processed. Meanwhile, Luis Neves, the director of the Central Combat of Banditism Directory in Lisbon, joins the core group of investigators.

On the same day, the policemen were confronted with the will of the parents to publicise their daughter's face as much as possible, which is usual in their own country. They were completely convinced that Madeleine had been abducted, and would not move an inch away from that theory.

Meireles thinks their theory makes as much sense as any other. What does not make sense is that they left their children in an apartment out of sight, out of their control, to go out and dine with friends.

In the meantime, the inspector had been at the Tapas Bar; he had been sitting at the table where the group had also been, and he had talked to the waiters. They had told him that the group usually drank significant amounts of alcohol. On the night that Madeleine disappeared, they had consumed twelve bottles of wine, and some appetizers.

The investigators have gathered informal statements, and they start to compare them. They soon realise that something is wrong. The couple's friends stated that they got up several times to check on the children, while the waiters from the Tapas bar say they did not get up that often at all. But even within the group of friends, there are contradictions.

As time passes, Francisco almost definitely abandons the theory that the child could have left the apartment on her own. Two possibilities remain - a kidnapping for ransom, or an abduction for paedophilia. The third possibility was that someone inside the group could have been involved in the disappearance. Francisco did not want to bet on that theory yet.

The media wave that has invaded Praia da Luz in the meantime, looks like a bad prediction for the destiny of the child, Meireles thinks. The excessive publicity could lead to her death, as the abductor could be prompted into acting, by eliminating the only person that could lead to his identification, if he were to be caught. The coordinator of the CID tries to convince the parents not to launch a massive media campaign, but the parents remain unmoved. Two different approaches to a criminal investigation have their first clash.

Two English people, one of them Jane Tanner, say that they saw a man carrying a child that could be the missing infant. The description given by Jane is very vague and carries a factor of doubt, as Gerry and a friend whom he was talking to, standing on the same location as Jane when she passed, saw nobody. The friend confirmed this.

At the time that Jane says she saw the man, Gerry had just left the apartment. Francisco cannot conceive that an abductor would have been waiting for this 'visitor' in order to enter through the door or the window, right under the father's nose, to carry out the child and to walk around with her in his arms, down the streets.

Francisco can only conclude that this was not how it happened. A criminal would not risk taking the child under such circumstances, so many variables out of his control. He would need five or six accomplices to control the situation, which is simply too much trouble to abduct a small girl.
