Madeleine McCann: Marcos Correia Knows, A Find And Jeremy Vargas

DAILY MIRROR front page: “DIVERS HUNT FOR MADDY IN LAKE – Underworld tip-off leads to fresh search”

“The hunt, near the Algarve resort where she went missing in May, followed an underworld tip-off to lawyer Marcos Correia

Says Marcos: “They told me she was thrown into a deserted lake with murky waters. I’m convinced this is the place”

Pages 4 and 5: “I believe this is where Madeleine’s body lies”

Mr Correaia is a “Good Samaritan”. He is paying for a team to search the lake. And the name of this lake? It’s the Barragem do Arade reservoir. The police have been here before

Marcos says: “I was able to identify the site on December 10 and immediately informed police. Who did nothing”

The Mirror says he was “ignored”

Says Marcos: “I got tried of waiting for them to act on my information, so I decided to act”
The police went to the reservoir in October, and here

“MY BOYS LOST TOO” – Jeremy Vargas is missing. He went missing form Gran Canaria eight weeks before Madeleine McCann vanished

Says Jeremy’s mum Ithaisa Suarez: “Police from Madrid told me that they have been in contact with Portuguese police investigating Madeleine”

DAILY STAR front page: “Maddie: Divers’ shock find at bottom of lake”
They’ve found here?

Page 12: “’Maddie’s body is in this lake’,” says Marcos Correia. Divers have made a “significant” find

It’s a…length of knotted cord “which could have been used to truss up a body”

Says Marcos: “I am determined to carry on until I find Madeleine’s body or satisfy myself she is not here”

Says the dive coordinator Alan Wilson: “The divers are searching entirely by touch, feeling in the silt”

The search could take some time


A team of frogmen are “trawling the massive Barragem do Arade lake 30 miles from Praia da Luz where the little girl went missing last May”

Found anything?

“They have recovered a length of plastic cord which has been handed to Portuguese police and are examining a large square-shaped block found at the bottom of the reservoir”

What other treasures lurk in the deep?

Says Marcos Correia: “It is logic that if you throw a body in the water you would tie it to something to weigh it down. It could have been a madman or a gang, I don’t know”

But let’s speculate, anyhow

Says the McCanns’ spokesman Clarence Mitchell: “We are grateful to anyone who has important information in the search for Madeleine”

“PARENTS ‘WERE MADE SUSPECTS TOO FAST’” -Words from Alipio Ribeiro, the Policia Judiciaria’s national director

THE SUN: “Maddie divers in lake tip-off”

“A lawyer claims he was told Maddie, four, was killed within 48 hours of being snatched in Praia da Luz, 40 miles away. Police have dismissed the theory”
