FOX or CNN had a piece on this last night, it's so disturbing to hear that there were up to 8 sightings in  Belgium of Madeline in the last year ??????

Furthermore, they stated that the email inquiry that is noted from the pedophile group includes a return email with Madeline's photo attached? Then another response back agreeing to the price for her ?????

It seems Madeline's parents have sent their own PI's to Belgium and the Netherlands to try to hunt this group down now.

I am so angry, how does this fall to these parents to pursue alone ?

I suspect Belgium has not assisted in this search for the pedophile ring is more likely, but Portugal hung these parents out to dry as having disappeared their own child, all the while sitting on this information ?????

No, I don't think it's fear, I think it's an european mindset in Belgium and even Portugal, that is far too accepting and worse, supportive of depravity.

I was thinking today that if I were the McCann's I would not trust Portugal or Belgium to pursue this or trust them to do so - and if Interpol hasn't stepped up, then maybe the McCann's feel they have no other choice than to pursue this with their own PI's.

Just knowing Madeline's photo was attached to that email before she was ever taken, well it's beyond anything I can imagine that LE could and would allow that to just lie there.

Missing Maddie seen just five days ago

POLICE are investigating a reported sighting of missing British girl Madeleine McCann in a Belgian bank just five days ago.

A security guard at the KBC bank in the run-down immigrant Molenbeek district of Brussels spotted a young, blue-eyed blonde girl with a woman of north African appearance on CCTV on Monday, The Sun reported today.

The news follows three earlier sightings in Belgium and three in Holland, and reports that Madeleine, 4, may have been stolen to order from her family's holiday apartment in Portugal by a Belgian pedophile ring.

Maddie's parents, Kate and Gerry, described the sighting as "invaluable".

McCann spokesman Clarence Mitchell said their own investigators would "move promptly".

"This is exactly the kind of up-to-date information we are looking for. We will be liaising to get access to the footage," The Sun reported.

In-depth: The search for Madeleine McCann

Police in Belgium interviewed the guard yesterday and were taking the sighting seriously.

"We’ve taken tapes from the bank for analysis," Commissioner Johan Berckmans said.

Maddie vanished from her family’s holiday flat in Praia da Luz in May last year as her parents dined with friends.

New video that shows a possible sighting of Madeline:

http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/UK-News/CCTV-Of-Girl-Resembling-Missing-Madeleine-McCann-Handed-To-Police-In-Belgium/Article/200808215075250

8:59pm UK, Monday August 11, 2008

Police are studying CCTV footage of a young girl resembling Madeleine McCann walking with a woman in Belgium.
 
The footage is being enhanced by American specialists


A bank security guard raised the alarm after spotting the blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl in Brussels.

The child, who is around Madeleine's age, was caught on security cameras with a dark-haired women in a hijab head scarf who spoke in a different language.

She was of North African or Arabic appearance and seemed to be pregnant.

At one stage, the girl was heard to ask in English: "Can we go back now?"

But despite the massive publicity, the woman has still not come forward.

This just makes me sick.  I have to wonder why more work isn't being done by Interpol?  The state police in the Netherlands and Belgium?

I just wanted to make the point that I saw earlier this week that the McCanns are paying £166,000 per month for the team of investigators.

£166,000 at today's exchange rate = $311,765.17 USD - remember - that's per month.

I believe I read that on the Daily Mail.

This figure, if true and I have no reason to doubt it, is well beyond the fees charged by METADO3 who were receiving 50,000 pounds per month.

If they get results - it doesn't matter what it costs.

Madeleine 'sighting' is ruled out
Page last updated at 16:45 GMT, Tuesday, 12 August 2008 17:45 UK
A possible recent sighting of Madeleine McCann in Brussels has been ruled out by the Belgian authorities.

The father of a young blonde girl whose image was captured on CCTV says it was his daughter with her nanny.

There have been around 100 sightings of Madeleine in Belgium since she went missing in Praia da Luz in Portugal in May last year.

The police inquiry into her disappearance was shelved in July after 14 months.

Belgian sensitivity

The BBC's Chris Mason said there were a few other potential sightings of Madeleine being looked into in Belgium, but it is not thought that any represent a strong lead.

Belgian officials suggest that people in that country are very sensitive to the case because of the notorious crimes committed by paedophile Marc Dutroux, who was convicted of child murder, kidnap and rape four years ago.

Police sources had earlier played down the significance of a tip-off during the investigation into Madeleine's disappearance that suggested she may have been kidnapped by a Belgian paedophile ring.

The Metropolitan Police got the information from an informant earlier this year and passed it onto Portuguese counterparts who then sought the help of the Belgian police.

Parents press on

Documents in the police files suggest that officers in all three countries found it difficult to pursue the lead because of a lack of detailed information.

Madeline's parents, Kate and Gerry, had their status as official suspects, or "arguidos", dropped at the end of July.

The 11,000 pages of evidence from the Portuguese inquiry were then released to the McCanns when the inquiry ended.

The couple have now hired private detectives to continue the search for their daughter, who was three when she disappeared in May 2007.

New twist in the search for missing Madeleine McCann

August 25, 2008 12:00am
A TEAM of private investigators working to find Madeleine McCann has been axed after being paid 500,000 pounds from publicly donated funds.

The Find Madeleine Fund quietly engaged the services of a US-based company, which was awarded the lucrative six-month contract this year.

Oakley International, which boasts former British security service and FBI contacts, was hired to monitor the Madeleine Hotline, carry out detective work and review CCTV footage of possible sightings of the missing girl around the world.

A source said it had also spent resources to try to infiltrate a pedophile ring in Belgium.

But its contract will not be renewed.

Tycoon Brian Kennedy, who has been underwriting the fund's search for Madeleine, had become unhappy with its progress and brought in independent monitors to assess how the money was spent.

The cost of employing the agency has drained the Madeleine fund and there is now less than pound stg. 500,000 left.

The development is likely to dismay the thousands who gave to the appeal and raise questions about how the fund has been administered.

Mr Kennedy was said to be angry because he believed Oakley's bills, estimated to be more than pound stg. 80,000 a month, were too much for the results it achieved.

A source said: "There is a sense that they were meaning well but hadn't got as far as they should for the money involved."

A spokesman for the McCanns refused to comment.

Madeleine disappeared from a resort in Portugal in May last year, nine days short of her fourth birthday .

It is a very frustrating case. Actually all of them are.
With all the attention you have seen on all of these cases, yet little gets solved.
There has been an amazing amount of research done by members of this and other forums.. Still no answer.
Very frustrating.

Madeleine McCann's parents release new video

Posted 9h 5m ago

LONDON (AP) — The parents of missing British girl Madeleine McCann have released a new video appealing for information about her.
Kate and Gerry McCann posted the video Sunday on the website www.findmadeleine.com that they set up after their daughter disappeared during a family holiday in Portugal.

The video shows footage of Madeleine singing and playing at the family home and closes with the words: "This will be our second Christmas without our daughter, Please help us make sure we don't have a third."

Madeleine McCann attracted international media attention when she disappeared in May 2007, a few days short of her 4th birthday.

I just can't understand why Portugese, Belgian, and Dutch police have dragged their feet in investigating all reported sightings of Madeleine.  This case is so frustrating, and my heart breaks for this family.

Cops in Madeleine McCann hunt bust pedophile ring

Article from: Agence France-Presse       January 20, 2009 07:30am

SPANISH detectives investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann from a Portugal holiday resort have busted an internet pedophile ring.

Spain's El Mundo newspaper claimed 13 suspects were arrested thanks to the probe by investigators from the Barcelona-based Metodo-3 agency.

The agency was hired by British couple Gerry and Kate McCann to trace their daughter who vanished on May 3, 2007, from their holiday apartment at the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz as they dined with friends at a nearby restaurant. She was three years old at the time.

The agency's investigators were hired six months after her disappearance and two months into their investigation, they received an email claiming that Madeleine featured in a pedophile video posted on the Internet, El Mundo reported.

Although it turned out that she did not appear in the video, the agency tipped off Spanish police who arrested the suspects in a series of raids in December 2008.

As well as those arrested, police questioned another 10 people and seized a large quantity of computer equipment.

Spain has staged a series of operations against Internet child pornography in recent years, arresting more than 1,200 people over the last five years - of whom 408 were arrested in 2008 alone.

Madeleine McCann's parents have been funding a private investigation to try to find out what happened to their daughter.

The Portuguese authorities closed their probe into her disappearance in July 2008.

This is very good news!  A pedophile ring was busted!  It may not lead back to Madeleine, but it makes me feel better knowing that one of these sick groups is no longer in existence.  Hopefully, this pattern will continue and more of these sick groups will be busted.
