Maddie cop rap - News of the World 01-06-08
Trying to kid? by Carole Malone - News of the World 01-06-08

Sur les TP7. What happened to the "We'll do whatever is necessary to find Maddie" mantra? Did that come with the proviso that they'll do "whatever's necessary" as long as it doesn't embarrass them, inconvenience them or put them in any personal danger?
Anyway, I don't see the problem. If these people have nothing to hide, if they really DO want to help find Maddie, why haven't they already hauled their backsides back to Portugal?

GMC's Blog :
Day 407: 13/06/2008 - Friday

First of all apologies for the long gap since my last blog. We are still very busy and the last 2 weeks all four of us have been laid low with a viral illness.
Our investigative team have been very busy working through all the information which has been coming in through the new hotline number and the e-mail addresses ' see investigation page. A lot of this information is undoubtedly relevant to the investigation and every piece of information will be followed up - a very time consuming process ' so please be patient with us! We are planning a facility to allow the upload of pictures of people who were in the Algarve leading up to Madeleine's abduction. In the interim pictures can be e-mailed to
The campaign for a Europe wide Amber alert continues. There is approximately one month left to get the majority of MEP's to sign the written declaration. Edward McMillan-Scott has told us that so far there are 211 signatures therefore we need another 182. Thank you to everyone who has written to MEP's. Some of the responses that have been sent display a complete lack of understanding in what we hope to achieve. For example some have said they will not sign because such a system is already in place with the 116 000 hotline number. Firstly this number for missing children is only operational in one out of 27 European countries (Greece) so far. Secondly the number does not mean an Amber alert will be issued for an abducted child as no such system exists - hence the written declaration. Thirdly we are looking for cross border cooperation between member states when a child is abducted. Hopefully with more lobbying, we can get the declaration accepted.
We are continually looking to improve the website. Over the next few weeks you should notice some changes. We are planning to have new messages on the home page from Kate and myself. The blog may change to a findmadeleine update, there will be new pages displaying the posters in full and further details of local fundraising events. With the holiday season approaching, we would be really grateful if people would once again download Madeleine posters from the website (available in many different languages in how to help/downloads section) and take them with them for distribution and display. 1 in 6 children are recovered after someone has recognisedthem from a poster!
Finally, we would like to say thank you to everyone for their continued help and kindness, the many letters, messages of support and prayers. It is reassuring and uplifting that Madeleine is in so many people's thoughts and prayers even at this stage.
La ligne directe 116 000 a pour mission d'écouter et soutenir les familles d'enfants disparus. Ce n'est pas le numéro à appeler pour signaler une disparition d'enfant ou un enlèvement.
Campagner en faveur d'une collaboration des pays de l'UE en cas d'enlèvement d'enfant est une excellente  manière de braquer les projecteurs sur vous pour une noble cause, et par conséquent de faire oublier que 1) vous êtes témoin assisté dans l'enquête sur la disparition de votre enfant et 2) votre enfant n'aurait jamais pu bénéficier d'une alerte enlèvement, aucun des critères n'étant rempli.

Message des MC
Gerry and Kate would like to thank all those who have taken the trouble to call or email with support and information. We have been taken aback by the level of your response. Thank you, it means so much to us. If you haven't had a response yet, please don't worry ? Someone from the team will be in touch shortly.
If you gave a statement to anyone during the course of the investigation into Madeleine's abduction, we'd be really grateful if you could contact us so that we can follow up every last piece of information.
Our daughter Madeleine was abducted on 3rd May 2007 in Praia da Luz, Portugal, 9 days before her 4th birthday. She was taken from our holiday apartment where she was sleeping with her younger brother and sister whilst we were dining 50 yards away. Despite a massive investigation led by the Portuguese police and supported by the British police, we still do not know who has taken her, why she was taken or where she is. In addition, private investigators based in Spain are now following up any leads regarding Madeleine's disappearance. (Investigation page)
Since Madeleine's abduction, we have learned a lot about missing children and child exploitation. The scale of the problem is massive and worldwide. Although finding Madeleine will always remain our priority, we feel it is our duty to highlight these problems as well as areas where legislation can be improved, in order to make the world a little safer for all children. To achieve these aims we are working closely with the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the Centre for Child Exploitation and Online Protection and other non-governmental agencies throughout Europe (Investigation page). The Find Madeleine Campaign launched a new YouTube channel for missing children in August 2007 called 'Don't You Forget About Me' in conjunction with ICMEC and Google.
The support we have had from around the world has been amazing. We have no doubt that without all the good wishes, prayers and efforts of so many people, our ordeal would have been so much harder. It has helped maintain our strength and hope, and this together with support for the campaign, has helped the search for our precious Madeleine. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their unconditional support and solidarity.
Madeleine is a beautiful little person. She was a very happy and much loved little girl. We believe there is a very good chance that Madeleine is still alive. She deserves the love and security of her family.
Comme s'il y avait des enfants qui ne méritent pas l'amour et la sécurité familiales.
She needs to be back home with her mummy and daddy, brother and sister.
Please keep Madeleine in your thoughts and prayers. And please ? remain vigilant.
We will NEVER give up looking for Madeleine.
Thank you again for your ongoing support and kindness.
Évidemment il est difficile d'écrire "elle est une petite fille très heureuse et très aimée', mais ils pouvaient écrire "nous l'aimons beaucoup et nous étions tous très heureux ensemble".
