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

THIS IS GUERNSEY: “‘Pictures of Maddy’ trap child-porn man”

A MAN told police he had found pictures of Madeleine McCann while surfing the internet.

But when they checked out the laptop Bruce Robert Smith brought into the station they found not missing Maddy, but child porn pictures and videos…

Smith was said to have been so depressed at the time that he did not understand the results of going to the police, the court heard. He was deluded and believed his actions were those of a detective investigating crime.

The 11 jurats, with Deputy Bailiff Richard Collas presiding, sentenced Smith to a total of two-and-a-half years in prison with a further two-and-a-half years under licence…

No further reference was made to Smith’s claims about Madeleine McCann.

HERALD (Ireland): “Maddie spokesman says he’ll help find missing teen Amy”

The mother of missing teenager Amy Fitzpatrick had a “very encouraging” meeting in Dublin with the spokesman for the parents of Madeleine McCann.

Are the cases linked?

Audrey Fitzpatrick (40) and her partner Dave Mahon met with former BBC reporter Clarence Mitchell at the Westbury Hotel to seek new ways of raising awareness about the search for Amy…

“We had a very encouraging meeting with Clarence. He flew into Dublin just to meet us and flew back to England a few hours later,” Audrey told the Herald today.

“When Clarence appeared on the Late Late Show a while ago, a lot of people were telling him about Amy so he left his number for us to contact him,” said Audrey.

“He offered to come over to meet us. It was very good meeting him. He has offered us real help in getting Amy into the British media,” she said.

“He was confident he will be able to get Amy’s story on the BBC and on Sky and on GMTV too,” she said.

“He is doing this just because he wants to help find Amy. We’re very grateful to him. We have been trying for a long time to get the British media interested in the search for Amy,” she added.

BELFAST TELEGRAPH: “Portrush Lifeboat Station: Answering the call of the tide

When UTV decided to run a series of programmes featuring the work of Portrush Lifeboat Station they weren’t to know the spectacular events which would unfold before their cameras. Producer/cameraman Iain Webster reports…

One sunny Saturday afternoon there was drama on the East Strand when a five-year-old girl disappeared. “All kind of thoughts go through your head when a child goes missing”, said police constable Adrian Gillan, who searched the East Strand. “We were all remembering poor wee Madeleine McCann and we knew the longer the search went on, the likelihood would increase that something terrible had happened.”

The child was found alive and well a very short while alter
