THE SUN : “McCann pals to face cop quiz”

Portuguese “cops are to jet to Britain to interview Kate and Gerry McCann and their pals in a last-ditch bid to solve Maddie’s disappearance. They want to quiz David Payne, Jane Tanner and partner Russell O’Brien, it was claimed.”

The Sun’s source is newspaper 24 horas. It reports: “We are finalising the last few details. Within ten days’ a team of investigators will travel to the UK.”

DAILY TELEGRAPH : “Last night on television: The Girls Who Were Found Alive (C4) Empty (BBC2)”

It was impossible not to think of other “disappearance” cases while watching The Girls Who Were Found Alive (C4). This fine Cutting Edge documentary told the story of two youngsters whose abduction, a decade ago, by a predatory paedophile ended against the odds in rescue. It could serve as a beacon of hope for any parent facing their worst nightmare. But in the context of the search for nine-year-old Shannon Matthews, who went missing last week in Dewsbury, and the ongoing tragedy of Madeleine McCann, it had extra poignancy.


Pop babe Leona Lewis made an emotional plea last night for help to find missing Shannon Matthews.

She begged nine-year-old Shannon her No1 fan to “come home’’.

And she appealed for anyone with information to tell police immediately.

Leona, 22, made the plea after Shannon’s family revealed her favourite song is the X Factor winner’s No 1 hit Bleeding Love.

Here come the celebs…

Leona says: “I urge anyone to come forward if they know anything about this. If Shannon is reading this then I urge her to get in touch with her parents and come home.’’
