Disgrace in Holland:

The couple’s spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: “If it was Madeleine, it was a disgrace that it was not passed on. We need to know what happened with this.

DAILY TELEGRAPH: “Madeleine McCann: Gerry and Kate learn of Amsterdam sighting – Kate and Gerry McCann have uncovered agonising details about a sighting of a young girl who called herself Maddy and said she had been taken from her mother while on holiday.

Anna Maria Stam, 41, was working in a shop which sold balloons and fancy dress at the beginning of May last year – before she heard the news about Madeleine.

She saw a Portuguese looking man and woman with a French accent walk in with a boy aged six and an eight-year-old girl.

Watching the seemingly happy group, she spotted another little girl, aged about three with shoulder length brown hair, standing nearby.

Her witness statement said: “The little girl stood before me and asked me in English: ‘Do you know where my Mummy is?’

“I answered that her mother was a little bit further back in the shop and she answered: ‘She is not my Mummy.’

“I asked her who the woman was, and she said: ‘She is a stranger, she took me from my Mummy.’ I noticed the little girl spoke good English without an accent.

“Next I asked the little girl what her name was and she said: ‘My name is Maggie.’

“When I repeated it, the little girl said, ‘No, my name is Maddy’. I still remember that because I thought it was a rare name which you didn’t often hear.

“I then asked her where she had last seen her mother and she answered: ‘They took me from my holiday.'”

The little girl then left with the woman. When Miss Stam saw Madeleine’s picture on the internet, she said: “We thought it was very much like the little girl except the colour of the hair.”

Shock – the spotter did NOT tell the papers.

Much more to follow…
