Madeleine McCann and Damien Nettles compete for Theresa May’s cash

nettles damien Madeleine McCann: a look at the missing child in the news.

The Sun : “FRESH HOPE FOR MADDIE? Brit cops may push for more government cash to help hunt for missing Madeleine McCann”

A questions mark. A story headlined “may”. No new facts. No news. This is the story since 2007, when the child vanished. The paper continues:

DETECTIVES investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have “outstanding work” left to do on the inquiry and may apply for more Home Office funding.

Or, they may not. The word “may” appears in the headline versions of the same story on the Daily Express and Daily Telegraph websites.

The Sun  adds:

In April, then-home secretary Theresa May granted the team £95,000 to keep the investigation going, with the cash expected to last until October. On Wednesday, Scotland Yard said it would talk to the Home Office about funding.

A force spokesman told the Press Association: “Whilst there remains outstanding work on this case, the Metropolitan Police Service will remain in dialogue with the Home Office regarding the continuation of funding.”

It’s a sad story with no sign of an end. But if not Madeleine, what could money be spent on?
