Madeleine McCann: Calling Cindy and Alan Thompson

by | 26th, May 2009

hewwlettMADELEINE MCCANN’S lastest crack team of private detectives are on the trail of Raymond Hewlett, who can’t be hard to catch because he’s in a German hospital undergoing treatment for throat cancer.

The reasons why the tecs want to speak with Hewlett are:

1. It keeps Our Maddie in the news

2. They want to know if he took her

3. They are acting on information received from Alan and Cindy Thompson

4. Why not?

5. He’s a convicted paedo.

Problem is that no crime has yet been established as having been enacted – Madeleine McCann has disappeared. But the shout of “paedo!” is an enticing one, and one that allows the court of public opinion to overlook speculation and just gawp and point the finger.

Clarence Mitchell is now acting as moral arbitrator and local sheriff, telling Raymond:

It’s clear the man is ill and it is clear he has information that our investigators need…

And:

“He denies he has anything to do with Madeleine’s abduction. If that’s the case, it’s very much in his interests that he speaks to Kate and Gerry’s investigators to help them eliminate him.

Is it? What if he doesn’t? Will the tecs tell the police, hand over evidence and see Raymond arrested? Or, er, not?

And what of Alan and Cindy Thompson?

The couple who raised the alarm about paedophile Ray Hewlett told yesterday how detectives who interviewed them asked: “Do you still have his mobile number.”

Alan and Cindy Thompson were questioned for three hours at the weekend by officers from Leicestershire Police’s Madeleine McCann task force.

Cindy, who handed over the foreign number, said yesterday: “The detective who interviewed me asked for Ray’s number. He didn’t say what they’ll do with it, I just hope it helps in some way.”

Is this the same Alan and Cindy Thompson who..?

In the spring of 1999, A British couple called Alan and Cindy Thompson were driving through Pakistan, in the very area that they’re now talking about as being bin Laden’s location. After driving for 11 hours on dirt roads they came to a checkpoint and were detained by armed Pakistani guards.

The next day the Dawn newspaper, one of the biggest newspapers in Pakistan, reported that this couple had found the secret lair of Osama bin Laden.

More interesting is that they reported that this location had been visited by US consulate officers, British, Australian, and Swiss ambassadors, and that it was guarded by a team of US commandoes.

After the couple were picked up by the British embassy they were invited to a garden party where all the British ambassadors and aid workers were bragging that they were stationed in the same area as bin Laden’s secret hideout.

After the couple got back home to England they saw a newspaper article calling for the capture of bin Laden. This was a few months before Clinton signed an executive order mandating bin Laden to be killed on sight.

The couple immediately contacted Scotland Yard in London; they contacted the FBI and the Pentagon and in every case got nothing. No response, no request for an interview. Nothing.

How’s that for a double whammy – Osama bin Laden’s lair and Our Maddie? Both captures would secure two substantial rewards.

Where are Alan and Cindy Thompson now – in Australia playing tennis with Lord Lucan? In Ireland spotting Shergar? Eating lunch in an Arizona cafe run by a large sweaty man in a rhinestone jump suit? Racing through Paris against a battered white Fiat Uno?

We’d like to hear from them. Their testimony could see the end of the search for Madeleine McCann- the single thread story that became a sensation.

More power to them who dare to come forward.

Madeleine McCann is missing – a child is missing…
