Madeleine McCann: Shannon Matthews And Amber Alerts

MADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann, Kate McCann and Gerry McCann

THE GUARDIAN: “Shannon Matthews drugged and tied up in mother’s fake kidnap plot, court told”

She was another Our Maddie, albeit from a lower social caste…

At a time when the disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine McCann was still making headlines, West Yorkshire police mobilised 200 officers, searched 1,800 properties, checked every park in Dewsbury, stopped up to 1,760 cars and passers-by a night, and drafted in three quarters of all the country’s police dogs.

So had Madeleine McCann not been missing, British police would not have reacted with such a show of force..?

RADIO NETHERLANDS: “Dutch introduce nationwide missing child alert”

Had an Amber Alert system been up and running in the whole of Europe, the disappearance of British three-year old Madeleine McCann in Portugal in May 2007 might have been avoided.

Yeah, might. Such are the facts…
