Madeleine McCann: A Shower Curtain, Kate’s Church Whispers And The Blonde Of Karia Ba Mohamed

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

DAILY MIRROR front page: “MADELEINE DNA IN BAG OF CLOTHES. Roadside find fuels hops she’s still alive”

Plastic bag near Faro airport. The “adult fleece” therein is “smeared with body fluids”. Which may explain why it was thrown away. Perhaps it was used to wipe something in an emergency? The residue is a “moderate” link to the missing child.

Says a friend of the McCanns: “This seems extremely significant. The fact they were found so recently does suggest Madeleine is still alive”

Pages 6 and 7: “IN THE BAG.” Yes, what’s in the bag. For those of you who didn’t read Anorak yesterday : “Shower curtain, white flannel, green elastic band, green child’s T-shirt, Pencil case”.

And “crucially” a pair of “adult jeans”. Although the Mirror does not put that in the list, nor the fleece. Why not?

The stuff is at the Forensic Science Service lab in Birmingham. It is being checked against “a list of known sex offenders”.

“SILENT SOBS AND PRAYERS” “Outside, the chill autumn night was filled with the sounds of happy families celebrating Guy Fawkes” Burn the Catholic!

“Inside the brightly lit parish church of St John, Kate McCann [Catholic![ silently sobbed as she relived a warm spring Portuguese evening”


A farm in the Rif Mountains of Morocco. The town of Karia Ba Mohamed is close by. A little blonde girl has been seen. Says “teacher” Majiod Jazouli: “The little blonde girl was seen about a month ago at a farm on the outskirts of Karia. I sent a boy inside the compound to verify it, and he said there was a blonde girl there. I could not go in there myself because I am a stranger and that would be against our culture”


Pages 4 and 5: “Says local police commander Commandant Abdul Khalik: “She is not there. We have checked for her”

Says the Express: “Karia Ba Mohamed is a farming town where blonde hair and Western faces are rarely seen” Unless the Berbers are in town

“Chase for £1million Madeleine bounty” Millionaire Brian Kennedy has put up a reward. “Unofficial tourist guides, off-duty policemen and drug dealers” are looking for Madeleine. All other Moroccans are nervous

Says local guide Ali El Bouazaout “exclusively” to the Express: “I have been all over Morocco looking for Madeleine…and if I find her I will be rich”
