Madeleine McCann: 3 Suspects, All Parents Are Good And Killing Summer In Praia de Luz

by | 8th, June 2014

MADELEINE McCann: Anorak look at the missing child in the news. In today’s newspapers.

The missing child is not on any of the front pages.

The Mirror : “Madeleine McCann search: Family of missing Ben Needham say ‘thoughts and prayers’ are with the McCanns”

Ben was just 21-months-old when he disappeared from the Greek island of Kos in 1991. A review into his disappearance was held in 2012, with some of the experts from that operation now being used in the renewed search for Madeleine.

23 years on, no trace of Ben has yet been found.

The police never looked that hard for him.

His family told Sky News: “Our thoughts are with the McCanns in this search for Madeleine. We ourselves know that this sort of investigation will be a very difficult time for the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.”

BBC: “Madeleine McCann: Police due to conclude scrubland search”

Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann are expected to spend a final day searching scrubland before moving on to new locations.

The operation on the 15-acre site in Praia da Luz started last Monday and was due to last five days but an extension was granted.

The Express : “Madeleine McCann: Three to be quizzed as hunt continues”

POLICE hunting for Madeleine McCann are expected to question at least three suspects “in the very near future”.

Do we know who they are?

Scotland Yard has identified eight men it believescould help solve the mystery of Madeleine’s disappearance in 2007 and is understood to have asked to question three of them. The eight are thought to include drug dealers and burglars.

So. Not suspects. Rather, people who could help police with their enquiries. But the word ‘suspects’ is out there:

Herald Scotland : “DETECTIVES investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann are likely to question “several suspects” in the near future, according to reports.”

The Irish Indy adds that: “Portuguese to arrest Maddie suspects for Met”

Portugal’s attorney-general’s office said in January it had received an international letter of request in regard to “prime suspects” sent by British police investigating the disappearance. Yesterday the source said there was still no date set for questioning but that it would not happen during the current search phase of the investigation, which would expand to new sites on Wednesday, culminating by “no later than next Friday.”

The Mail  makes links:

Search for Madeleine McCann to move to new site around water treatment plant linked to suspect…

The search for Madeleine McCann is to move to scrubland around a water treatment plant where a prime suspect may have worked…

Heroin addict Euclides Monteiro was working at a water and sewage plant in Lagos, four miles from the Ocean Club in Praia da Luz where Madeleine was staying with her parents, Gerry and Kate.

The police will have a job interviewing him. He’s dead.

The Guardian looks at the locals:

The Praia de Luz mayor, Victor Mata, has said the timing of last week’s search – which coincides with the resort’s busiest holiday period and brought dozens of journalists back to the area – “couldn’t be worse”. He said local tourism was suffering and people were being “punished”. Mata warned that if there were more searches in future, he would seek court action to stop them happening during peak summer period. “The people of Luz are not against the searches for Madeleine but seeing as it’s been seven years, they would have appreciated it if they could have started in a few months’ time.”

And the McCanns:

Kate and Gerry McCann released a statement on their website saying they were “encouraged by the progress” being
