Four year old Madeleine McCann went missing four months ago while she and her family were staying in Praia da Luz, Portugal. After all the investigation, after all the searching for missing Madeleine McCann, Portuguese police are about to do the unthinkable. The mother of Madeleine McCann is about to be named a suspect in the disappearance of her daughter.
The mother of a British girl who disappeared four months ago in southern Portugal is to be named a formal suspect in the case Friday, a family spokesman said, a shocking twist to a case that has gripped much of Europe. Kate McCann was questioned for almost 11 hours on Thursday, and is due back at a police station in Portimao, a town in Portugal’s Algarve region, later Friday morning, family spokesman David Hughes told The Associated Press.

Madeleine: Blood In Parents’ Car?
Portuguese police have suggested to Kate McCann that traces of her daughter’s blood were found in a car the family hired 25 days after the girl went missing, a family friend said.
Mrs McCann, who is being questioned again by police, fears she will be charged today over the death of Madeleine.
In this bizarre turn of events, after all the efforts put forth by the parents of missing Madeleine McCann, either this is one of the most strange efforts by parents to find their missing child or the Portugese police have blown it. Kate McCann was questioned for over 10 hours. Both Kate and Gerry McCann have denied any involvement in their daughters disappearance.
After Mrs McCann was questioned for over 11 hours yesterday, the McCann’s lawyer Carlos Pinto de Abreu, insisted she was interviewed only as a witness.
Portuguese laws severely restrict what those privy to an investigation may say publicly, but Mrs McCann is said to be “amazed and concerned” by the news that her status has changed.
Previously Kate McCann and her husband Gerry had always met police together and officials described the meetings as informal. Both have denied any involvement in their daughter’s disappearance.
But yesterday Mrs McCann was interviewed alone and Mr McCann is expected to be interviewed separately at around 2pm today. (The UK Telegraph)

The sighting of Madeleine McCann took place in a restaurant in the Dutch-speaking town of Tongeren, near the Dutch border east of Brussels. She was reportedly with a man and a woman who were acting suspiciously. Authorities will be doing DNA testing on a bottle taken from the restaurant.
DNA test results are expected next week on a bottle taken from a restaurant where a girl resembling four-year-old Madeleine was seen drinking, local prosecutor Katja Van Doren said.
A child psychologist reported seeing the girl with a man and woman in the restaurant in the Dutch-speaking town of Tongeren, near the Dutch border east of Brussels.
The three people drove away in a black Volvo with Belgian plates, local police said, stressing that the number plate could be false.
The couple were said to have been acting in a suspicious manner.
Belgian police have issued an identikit picture of the man involved, said to be in his 40s with black hair and stubble on his prominent chin.
He was said to speak with a Dutch accent, while the woman, who also had dark hair, spoke to him in English.
Madeleine McCann sighting treated seriously
- Police release computer image of suspect
- Couple fled cafe before challenged
- Girl turned around at “Madeleine” call
An artist’s impression, released by Belgian police Aug. 3, 2007, shows a man who had been seen with a small girl sitting at the terrace of the roadside cafe “De Pauze” in the eastern town of Tongeren near the Dutch border.

Madeleine McCann Scared Monkeys Forum Discussion
Let’s hope that this lead is a hoax. Police have received a letter stating where missing Madeleine McCann is buried. It claimed that she was buried under rocks in a remote area. Could this be the lead that finds the missing 4 year old or just a cruel hoax?
MADRID, Spain (CNN) — Portuguese police are investigating an area nine miles from where a young British girl was abducted after a tip-off to a newspaper in the Netherlands.
An anonymous letter claiming 4-year-old Madeleine McCann’s body is buried under rocks in deserted scrubland was sent to newspaper De Telegraaf and passed on to the Portuguese Policia Judiciaria.
A Dutch police spokesman said: “On Monday De Telegraaf received a letter from an anonymous sender which contained information about where Madeleine McCann may be.
“The letter included a map of the area where the sender claims she is. The newspaper handed the letter over to the police on Tuesday and immediate forensic tests were carried out.
As the search goes on for Madeleine McCann, a witness is guilt ridden for not reporting what she had see. At the time the witness just did not realize the importance of what she had seen.
The vital witness, a close friend of Kate and Gerry McCann, was on her way to join Madeleine’s parents for dinner at the tapas bar when she saw a man with a blonde girl wrapped in a blanket.
The scene is eerie. On the night Maddie was snatched, she saw a man with a blonde girl wrapped in a blanket. She was wearing “distinguishable” pink pajamas, the woman has told police. At the time she thought it was odd, but only realized to her horror too late that it was probably Madeleine.
The man is white, 35 to 40 years old, of medium build and 5ft 10in. He has short hair and was wearing a dark jacket, light beige trousers and dark shoes.
The suspect in the Madeleine McCann disappearance, Robert Murat, did according to The Suns front page headlines, have kiddie porn on his computer. More HERE.
Ever since Madeline went missing, child pornography and paedophilia have been the tabloids’ main line of speculation.
No meaningful debate on “every parent’s worst nightmare” has been had in the past two weeks. There have been no calls for a paedophile amnesty, a period of grace in which anyone with child porn on their PC or in their locker can contact the authorities and explain how they came by it without fear of being branded and charged. The police could then trace the material to source and catch the evil profiteers.
What we have is finger-pointing and the news that Robert Murat “visited a string of depraved sites”. And this is Murat who lives “yards” from the holiday flat where Madeleine was snatched. Or Maddie, as the Sun insists on calling her.

Police believe that Madeleine is still alive and being held 2-3 miles from where she was abducted.
Madeleine was taken from the ground-floor apartment at the Mark Warner Ocean Club holiday village between 9:30pm and 10pm. Mrs McCann found that the outside shutter and window to Madeleine’s room had been opened and her daughter was missing shortly before 10pm local time.
Detectives searching for Madeleine have said they are convinced the child is still alive, that they know the “prime suspect” and that she is being held close to the resort.

There are numerous media reports of the police drawing heavy criticism for the manner in how this case was initially handled.
UPDATE I: Portuguese police under fire over missing UK girl, 3
But there were recriminations in the Portugese media over the police’s handling of the investigation in the first few hours after Madeleine’s disappearance.
The Portugese daily newspaper, Diario de Noticias, claimed that border police were not told that a child had been kidnapped until about midday on Friday, more than 12 hours after Madeleine was reported missing.
As a member of the EU, Portugal has no border controls with Spain, and motorists can cross from one country to the other unchecked.
The newspaper claimed that proper procedure would have been for Portugal’s Judicial Police – the local equivalent of CID – to have tipped off the country’s Borders and Aliens Service as soon as they knew that a child had been kidnapped.
Another paper, Correio de Manha, said the main border crossing from the Portuguese Algarve to Spain had no special controls in place whatsoever until Saturday afternoon. (NZ Herald)

UPDATE III: Balding man seen dragging blonde girl towards marina
Portuguese police investigating the abduction of Madeleine McCann are hunting for a balding man who is believed to have been seen dragging a girl to a marina in a town close to where she disappeared.
Detectives have not identified the man but have said that he is a suspect in the kidnapping of Madeleine from a holiday apartment on the Algarve on Thursday night
A police artist’s impression of a balding man who was seen with a blonde girl similar to Madeleine shows just the back of his head.

The man is believed to have been seen dragging the girl on a road leading to a marina in the town of Lagos, about 5 miles (8km) from Praia da Luz. Another witness is reported to have seen a girl struggling in the back of a car on a road leading from Praia da Luz. (Times on Line)
