Madeleine McCann is spotted more often because she’s missing, says detective

by | 4th, September 2012

WHEN we read that a German tourist has spotted Madeleine McCann on a flight from Ibiza, we wondered why he din’t shout out her name or take a really clear photograph? Still, he did his best. And the Olive Press , which broke the story that was picked up by the Daily Mirror and the Sun , says he did ok. In “Detective praises reporting of ‘Maddie’ sighting in Ibiza” , we read of former Met officer Ian Horrocks. We’ve heard from this expert before . He’s “praised the quick thinking of reader Frank Bode .

German businessman Bode was so convinced he had spotted the youngster with a German family on the flight from Ibiza to Munich a fortnight ago that he contacted police, the family and the Olive Press, after taking a photo.

Sure. But it wasn’t her. And then we get this belch of logic:

Horrocks believes that the longer Madeleine has been missing, the more likely it is that people will spot her.

The longer she is missing the more likely it is that people will think they have spotted her. No? Because if she’s spotted get this, detective she’s no longer missing.
