by | 24th, October 2007

MADDY WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann

DAILY EXPRESS front page: “MADELEINE – FATHER PLAYED TENNIS AFTER SHE VANISHED”

No not Father Pacheco – Gerry McCann.

Says Ocean Club waiter Jose Baptista: “If my kid disappeared I’d go insane. I wouldn’t be able to function. They’d have to lock me away. They were so cool about it. All the staff commented about how they were able to play tennis and things calmly”
“I never saw them cry or anything”
You want empathy…

Pages 2 and 3: “It will take a miracle to find her” – Madeleine’s “broken” grandparents talk with “searing honesty” and “struggle to fight back the tears.” Says Kate McCann’s mother Susan Healy on Spanish TV, talking of Madeleine: “But we’re not going to acknowledge she’s gone from our life altogether. She’s too important for that”
Of the night Madeleine went missing: “My daughter is very placid, very easy-tempered and I saw her scream at the British council that night, shout down the phone at him to do something”
You want emotion…

DAILY MIRROR page 15: “Cops forced to show McCanns their evidence in three weeks”

The McCanns “could” be given “secret police files” on November 14, six moths to the day since Robert Murat was named an official suspect. This “could be a massive boost” for the McCanns. Or not

DAILY MAIL page 39: “Gerry McCann’s call home: It’s a disaster mum, she’s gone”
Gerry McCann’s mother-in-law Susan Healy picks up the phone. It’s Gerry. He is “hysterical”. He says: “There’s been a disaster, it’s a disaster. Madeleine has been abducted from her bed”

DAILY STAR front page: “MADDIE WAS IN MURAT VILLA – new DNA find outs No1 suspect back in frame”

Pages 8 and 9: “Maddie DNA in Murat house” – DNA samples found in Murat’s house are said to match traces of DNA fond in the boot of the McCann’s Renault Scenic
Says Mr Murat’s lawyer: “My client has nothing to fear”

“Writer points to Kate” – Crime writer Patricia Cornwell “reckons Madeleine’s mum holds the key to the case” – You want a feeling?

THE SUN front page: “Waiter: Kate is so cold” – Like a gazpacho soup, says Jose Baptista

“I promised we’d get our Maddie back…but it’s harder to say that now” – Susan Healy is at her home in Liverpool. The TV cameras are rolling…

DAILY TELEGRAPH, THE GUARDIAN, THE INDEPENDENT and THE TIMES: No Madeleine news
