Madeleine McCann: Hope Floats

The Express is making the Madeleine McCann story its own. Should there be any information of the missing child, the Express will be able to flick through its scrapbook and point to the line that confirms that it was first with the truth.

Of course, to get to the kernel of truth readers must make their way through pages and pages of speculation. And today they learn that Madeleine McCann was taken from Portugal on a boat.

The paper says detectives have uncovered details of the route the youngster’s kidnappers took. The details are sketchy – was it a boat or a yacht?

A police source says: “It is a strong line of inquiry. We believe Madeleine is no longer in Portugal and this is the most likely way of taking her abroad.”

And who took her? Was it Robert Murat? The Express hears a witness say they saw a man rushing to the seafront on the night Madeleine went missing.

The Express has a picture of Murat, suspect number one, walking with his lawyer. But he has never left Portugal. Indeed, it was his presence around the crime scene that sparked his being named as the chief suspect.

And there is Gerry McCann saying goodbye to his wife Kate. He is off to America, a long boat ride away from Portugal.

“Kate and I felt it was important to make this trip to America,” says he. “It’s not that we think Madeleine is in the US. But it is predominantly a trip to speak to the top experts in the field of missing children.”

No, not the Express…
