Madeleine McCann: Three Years Later Portuguese Police Got A Call About An Intruder
PIERS Eady has a Madeleine McCann scoop in the Daily Mirror:
Madeleine McCann: Cops probing claims a kidnapper tried to snatch another British tot from holiday flat in Portugal
A British tot! Like the missing child… Go on…
A mum has told Scotland Yard how she chased an intruder away from her Algarve apartment after she found him heading towards her child’s cot
So. Maybe not a kidnapper, then. But an intruder. And that’s horrible. Is the mother ok?
Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann are probing claims a kidnapper tried to snatch another British tot from a holiday flat in Portugal.
The facts are getting less certain. Anything more?
The unnamed mum reported it to Portuguese police at the time, but it is claimed they failed to search the area or take fingerprints.
Why is she unnamed? This is presented as a possible lead.
Detectives investigating three-year-old Maddy’s disappearance have now interviewed the mum.
And what did she says? We’re not told. But what thats bit about the Portuguese police never bothering to investigate?
A source said: “British detectives are keen to establish whether Portuguese officers missed a crucial line of inquiry here. There is some confusion over why this was not taken more seriously.”
An unnamed woman and now an unnamed source.
Anyhow, those Portuguese police are useless, aren’t they?
It was reported that the mum said she heard a noise late one night and caught the intruder heading for the cot. The would-be-kidnapper fled the apartment, thought to be in an apartment in an Algarve resort north of Praia da Luz, where Maddy was taken.
The alleged incident happened in 2010 – three years after Maddy vanished from her bed while on holiday with her parents Kate and Gerry and twin brother and sister.
Got that? Do you see the coincidences? Maybe it can be cleared up by those bungling Portuguese police who should have a record of the complaint?
