DAILY STAR (front page): “Maddie is seen alive & well in Brazil”

Madeleine McCann is on a plane bound for Sao Paulo. She has also been spotted in Argentina and Chile. The Star says 11 million people live in Sao Paul. It’s the world’s fifth biggest city.

Such are the facts. Gerry McCann is a “heart consultant”. Kate McCann is a “GP”. Facts.

Madeleine has also been seen in: Portugal , Spain , Malta , Morocco , Belgium , Bosnia , France , Australia  and Dorset .

Says Clarence Mitchell: “There have been a handful of sightings of Madeleine in South America. Some have been reported, others have not.”

How do editors decide which sightings got on the front page and which are ignored? How do the McCanns?

Have you seen Madeleine?

DAILY MIRROR : Maddy is ‘seen’ on Brazil jet

Interpol was yesterday investigating an apparent sighting of Madeleine McCann in Brazil. The child was reportedly with a man on a flight to Sao Paulo six weeks ago.

Interpol’s chief in Brazil, Jorge Pontes, said: “The sighting is still under investigation so we cannot reveal details. All I can say is that we have a witness insisting they saw the child on a flight.”


Sao Paulo is South America’s biggest city. Fact. Ten million Brazilians live in Sao Paulo. Fact. Taking the Sun and Star’s figures into account we deduce that one million foreigners live in Sao Paulo. And one of those is Madeleine McCann.
