DAILY MAIL: “Couple saw bundle taken out to sea near where Madeleine disappeared but police ignored them”

A bundle?

A British couple saw a package being bundled onto a jetski on a beach just six miles from where Madeleine McCann went missing. The tourists had been for a morning swim just nine hours after the little girl disappeared when they spotted the jetski.

A man in a dark wetsuit was riding it, with a 2ft- to 3ft-long black package on the front. He took it to a small “official-looking” grey boat moored just off the coast at Salema.

Man with bag spotted… Read all about it!

The McCanns’s spokesman said they were concerned the Portuguese police had not followed up such a “potentially significant lead”. Really.

GLASGOW DAILY RECORD: “Maddie Jetski Snatch Riddle”

A riddle? A man with a bag on a jet ski? A riddle? Or a man with a bag on a jetski?

CHILD snatchers may have smuggled Madeleine McCann out of Portugal on a jetski within 10 hours of her kidnap. Two new witnesses have emerged saying they saw a man carrying a large bundle on a beach near Praia da Luz the morning after Madeleine vanished.

They said the man sped off on a jetski with the 3ft-long load on his lap and met a small boat offshore.

A boat. Offshore. On the sea. Not on the land…

One witness, a 58-year-old British woman, says: “The man was acting very strange, he was dressed in black and left on a black jetski with a bundle on his lap. The bundle was definitely big enough to hold Madeleine. It could have been her.”

McCann spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: “If these people had a sighting which is potentially significant, then clearly our investigators will require this information as a priority.”


Say the Policia Judiciaria: “The Policia Judiciaria have carried out all the pertinent and sensible operation”

ARAB NEWS (Saudi Arabia): “Israel’s Moral Compass Is Flawed”

A propagandist called Linda Heard manages to aliken the disappearance of a missing child with terrorists firing rockets upon Israel and that country’s response:

Ponder on the morality of the media-inspired public response to Madeleine McCann as opposed to Gaza’s maimed and orphaned babies. According to the British newspaper Independent, there were 465 stories about her in the British press, the family received 1.1m pounds in public donations, while a host of celebrities — including Simon Cowell, Sir Richard Branson and J.K. Rowling — offered rewards totaling 2.6m pounds.

To the best of our knowledge, Kate and Gerry McCann have not vowed to push an entire nation of people’s into the sea, fired rockets upon them and used children as a human shield…
