Madeleine McCann: What do we know about the case?
May 7, 2014

Madeleine McCann, from Rothley, Leicestershire, went missing on 3 May 2007, after she disappeared from her bed at the Ocean Club complex in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz. She was three-years-old when she vanished.

Madeleine and her two younger siblings had been left asleep in a bedroom of the apartment while her parents dined with seven other friends at a Tapas restaurant 50 metres away.

She was discovered missing by her mother Kate McCann at 10pm that evening, who had gone for dinner with the group at 8.30pm and had returned to check on her children.

Police were called and staff searched and guests searched the apartments until daybreak. In June, Portuguese Chief Inspector Olegario Sousa admitted vital forensic clues may have been destroyed in the first hours after Madeleine’s disappearance, because the scene was not properly protected.

British police leading hunt for Madeleine McCann 'banned from searching burglary suspects' homes by Portuguese authorities'
5/7/14

    Portuguese authorities approved Scotland Yard's plans to excavate site
    But they blocked request to search homes of suspects at Algarve resort
    Suspects were working at Ocean Club resort when Madeleine vanished
    They 'carried out break-ins at resort in run-up to Maddie's disappearance'
    But investigators are starting to dig waste ground at Praia da Luz resort
    Despite huge interest in case, Portuguese police are demanding secrecy
    They have threatened to halt their search if media is given information


British police leading the hunt for Madeleine McCann have allegedly been banned from searching the homes of burglary suspects by Portuguese authorities.

It comes as Scotland Yard returned to the Algarve holiday resort where the tragic case of the missing began seven years ago, to excavate key sites as part of their investigation.

But the latest revelation will fuel serious concerns that the efforts of British police could be blocked at any point by the Portuguese authorities, amid continuing tensions between the forces.

Police have to write formally to the Portuguese judiciary every time they want to act on information they believe needs to be investigated. While the digging was approved, the searches were not.

Attorney general Joana Marques Vidal’s office in Portugal confirmed that the Met Police have made five requests for help with their investigation since August 2012, most recently this March.

According to Portuguese daily Jornal de Noticias, Scotland Yard’s arguments for carrying out the searches were not considered valid by the judiciary.

They are thought to have carried out a series of break-ins at the resort in the run-up to Maddie’s disappearance. Police reportedly asked local officers to quiz the trio and search their homes.

One theory is that the burglars raided the McCanns’ flat and were panicked into snatching the youngster when she woke up.

'It's not a quick dig bringing in JCBs. This is a forensic archaeological evacuation - a meticulous, thorough search'

Janice Runacres, former Metropolitan Police forensic manager

Analysis of mobile phone data suggests the men were close to the scene of her abduction, at the time she went missing, and were in close contact in the hours that followed.

Maddie disappeared from the apartment she was staying in with her parents and two siblings on May 3, 2007. The seventh anniversary of this was on Saturday. She was three years old at the time.

While her parents, Gerry and Kate, both 45, have been briefed on the plans, they are not travelling to the resort while work is carried out.

The cold case review into the three-year-old’s disappearance, known as Operation Grange, has seen a team of detectives painstakingly search through every document collected throughout the inquiry.

According to local reports, one of the key search areas is a patch of wasteland about the size of three football pitches, across the road from Ocean Club where the McCanns were staying, as well as the tapas bar where they were dining when Maddie disappeared.

Detectives from Scotland Yard have used a helicopter in a fresh search for Madeleine McCann ahead of crucial excavation work in the holiday resort where she vanished.

After Scotland Yard detectives met with Portuguese authorities, an Alouette helicopter scoured the Praia da Luz coast on an apparent reconnaissance mission.

Military photographers, who were accompanied by British policemen, took pictures of the beach and key sites in the resort where detectives plan to dig for clues in the coming days.

Madeleine McCann News: Convicted Child Rapist Anthony Woodhouse Questioned In Prison
5/12/14

Detectives investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann reportedly spent two hours quizzing a convicted child rapist in his prison cell.

Anthony Woodhouse is being held at Channings Wood jail in Devon, where he is serving a 17-and-a-half year jail term.

The 68-year-old spent more than ten years in hiding in Portugal after raping and impregnating 14-year-old girl in Herefordshire, The Sun reports.

He gave himself up in 2008 claiming he felt “preoccupied with guilt every day.”

A source told the newspaper: “Officers took him into a private room for a good couple of hours.

“They were talking about how he was in ‘close proximity’ to where Madeleine disappeared. For days after he was quizzed, Woodhouse was abused by inmates. Whenever he walked down the corridor they’d chant, ‘Give her back, give her back.’”

Woodhouse was reportedly questioned in March about a cleaning business he was running in the Algarve when Madeleine went missing.

Madeleine, who was then nearly four, disappeared from her family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on May 3 2007, as her parents dined at a nearby tapas restaurant with friends.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard told Huffington Post UK it would “not be providing a running commentary” on the investigation.

Monday is Madeleine’s 11th birthday, which parents Kate and Gerry will mark with cake and presents at their home in Rothley, Leicestershire.

I agree with the comment below the article. 

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/05/12/the-hunt-for-madeleine-mccann-s-grave.html
The Hunt for Madeleine McCann’s Grave
May 12, 2014

As Madeleine McCann’s parents marked another sad birthday for their missing daughter on Monday, Portuguese police prepared to break ground in a vacant field across the street from the resort where the young girl disappeared seven years ago.

The move to excavate the abandoned field where Irish investors had once planned to build a holiday resort (before the economic crisis and the stigma of McCann’s disappearance lured them elsewhere), brings the investigation full circle back to Portugal.
 
The search for McCann’s grave in the abandoned field could begin this week.  Portuguese police will lead the dig, which is being funded under Operation Grange.  They will start by using ground penetrating radar equipment and helicopters to map out the area, which is the size of three football fields.  They are searching for abnormalities in the soil, replanted vegetation and other signs of a rogue grave.  It has angered many local business owners who say piles of fresh dirt in the search for a missing child will not be good for tourism.  Local pub owner Nancy Thompson told the BBC that she feared it would ruin the summer season. “Why now? Why didn’t they do it at the time?” she said.  “It will be like a circus town.”

Portuguese police have also warned that if the dig becomes a media extravaganza they will cease operations.  They also threatened British police that if they give press conferences or leak information during the digs, the operation will be stopped.  According to Mark Rowley, assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, the media must not behave as they did when McCann first disappeared. In an open letter to British newspapers, he warned reporters to stay away.  “If we provide any briefings or information on the work they are undertaking on our behalf, or if reporters cause any disruption to their work in Portugal, activity will cease.”

British police have also expressed concern that Portuguese police may have information from other criminal investigations that could provide clues in the McCann case, but because the Portuguese cops, known as the policia judiciaria, have been so strongly criticized for their initial handling of the case, the British police have to tread lightly.  According to Andy Redwood, who is leading the Operation Grange operation, they won’t give up.

"Sitting in police exhibits stores somewhere on the Algarve could be forensic material which we and our senior colleagues in the policia judiciaria are not aware of,” Redwood told reporters last month.  “We're keen to find out about that. We're not going to stop asking questions until we are satisfied we have everything that is available."
 

Comment:

ibcingutoo 1 hour ago
So, let me get this straight -- the Portuguese police will look for Madeleine's body in this field but, if someone interrupts them, they'll stop.  How does that make any sense if they really think this will solve this case?  This isn't a game for this little one's parents.  It's an end to a nightmare. Forget the politics & just do what needs to be done to find this little girl --dead or alive.

Madeleine McCann: Police in Portugal search scrubland

Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have sealed off a large area of scrubland in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz.

The British girl was three when she went missing in the resort in 2007.

On 22 May Scotland Yard said a "substantial phase of operational activity" would start in Portugal in the coming weeks.

The BBC understands that has now started with the scrubland search by Portuguese and British police officers.

Portuguese police arrived and cordoned off the area in the early hours of Monday and British officers arrived later in the morning.

Officers are expected to use dogs and "ground penetrating radar" to search the scrubland, looking for disturbed earth.

The search is being carried out after a request from the Metropolitan Police, and it is believed that Scotland Yard is providing some technical equipment.

It would be interesting to know what foundation motivated the latest official search in the area not far from of the resort where Madeleine McCann went missing seven years ago.

Madeleine McCann: UK Cops Search Scrubland
Monday 02 June 2014


<snipped>

A team of around 30 officers and police staff have travelled to Praia da Luz and began by unloading equipment and mapping out the four acre site.

The cordoned off area is a five-minute walk from the Ocean Club complex where Madeleine, who was three at the time, was staying with her family in May 2007.

Parents Gerry and Kate McCann will be kept updated but have not travelled to Portugal.

Former Scotland Yard detective Peter Bleksley told Sky News the radar equipment likely to be used in the operation can detect if the ground has been disturbed as far back as seven years ago.

Maddie McCann: Police seal off area to dig
Published: Mon, June 2, 2014


<snipped>

Maddie's parents Kate and Gerry McCann are not believed to have travelled to Portugal as part of the new investigations.

During the latest round of searches in Portugal, Officers will use radar penetration equipment to look for signs of soil disturbance while mechanical diggers will carry out full excavations.

Trained sniffer dogs will also be used to search for human remains. The main target is a fenced-off wasteland area the size of three football pitches 100 yards from the Ocean Club apartment where her family was staying.

<snipped>

The new search operation, which could last up to a week, was instigated by Prime Minister David Cameron after Portuguese police failed to find Madeleine.

She went missing on May 3, 2007, while her parents were having dinner with friends at a nearby tapas restaurant.

Madeleine McCann Cops Search Ground on Hands and Knees
PRAIA DA LUZ, Portugal May 3, 2014


Police accompanied by sniffer dogs searched Portuguese scrubland on their hands and knees today hunting for clues to the disappearance seven years ago of little Madeleine McCann.

A team from London's Metropolitan Police fanned out and scoured the area of wasteland the size of three football fields just 300 yards from the vacation apartment Madeline and her family were staying at when she disappeared in 2007.

Officers were on their hands and knees carrying out finger tip searches as well as using sniffer dogs brought in especially from Britain, meticulously searching certain parts of this vast wasteland, concentrating on specific areas and marking them with yellow flags.

Once those areas of interest were isolated, this afternoon they began working feverishly, digging, using spades and taking samples from the earth to test.

Scotland Yard said they are keeping Madeleine's parents, Kate and Jerry McCann informed.

Madeleine McCann: Police Tents Erected
Wednesday 04 June 2014


Police officers in Praia da Luz have erected tents over several locations they have deemed significant as they use radar equipment and sniffer dogs to search scrubland close to where Madeleine McCann went missing.

Two forensic officers were seen entering the tents to examine what was hidden below.

One of the tents is covering a hole concealed by corrugated iron which was exposed on Tuesday after trees and shrubs were cut down.

Earlier, the detective leading the British review into Madeleine's disappearance, DCI Andy Redwood, examined the area which it is thought had been covered by the iron for a number of years.

<snipped>

Police have not revealed what intelligence they have that leads them to the scrubland, which is a five-minute walk from the Algarve holiday complex where three-year-old Madeleine had been staying with her family.

The youngster disappeared from her family's apartment in the Ocean Club resort in May 2007.

Sun sets on week-long search for Madeleine McCann by British police
Sunday 8 June 2014 20.07 BST


It began with British detectives on all fours scouring a hilly stretch of scrubland on the Algarve coast. But as the sun set on the first week of searches in Praia da Luz, the air of hopeful anticipation collapsed into acrimony as the parents of Madeleine McCann were forced yet again to plead for calm.

Police officers on Sunday night packed up and left a six-hectare (15-acre) site where they had focused their operations over the previous week. On Wednesday they will start again on two new areas near a campsite in the Portuguese village where Madeleine was last seen alive seven years ago.

No new Madeleine McCann evidence found during Portugal dig, UK police say
By Susannah Cullinane, CNN
updated 5:11 PM EDT, Wed June 11, 2014


(CNN) -- A eight-day search in Portugal near where Madeleine McCann went missing seven years ago has uncovered no new evidence, British police said Wednesday.

London's Metropolitan Police -- also known as Scotland Yard -- are leading the hunt for Madeleine, who was a few weeks shy of her fourth birthday when she disappeared from her family's holiday apartment Praia da Luz, on Portugal's Algarve coast, in 2007.

Scotland Yard said its officers had been working alongside Portuguese police and experts to search specific areas in the resort town.

They had searched some 60,000 square meters of ground, including drains and derelict buildings, in what was "the largest deployment "ever undertaken by UK police overseas in a case of this type."

"The decision to search the 'horse shoe' shaped piece of waste ground to the west of Praia da Luz and other sites was as a specific result of the UK's investigation work to date," police said in a statement Wednesday.

"Forty-one ground anomalies were identified initially by both aerial survey and ground analysis which were then investigated fully," they said.

Madeleine McCann investigation: Detectives to return to Portugal in 'make-or-break' moment
8/29/14


British police are believed to be preparing to head back to Portugal as part of renewed investigations into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
 


A group of detectives from Scotland Yard’s Operation Grange are reportedly set to travel back to the holiday resort of Praia da Luz next month, from where the-then three-year-old Madeleine was taken in 2007.

They are expected to hold meetings with senior Portuguese officers and are understood to have been granted permission to interview up to seven key suspects as well as investigate new areas of interest.

An undisclosed source told the Daily Mirror that the development was a “make-or-break moment” in the seven-year investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance.

The source said “thousands of pieces of evidence” had been re-examined by the British police team to get to this stage, adding this latest move was “far from a scatter gun approach”.

With a finite budget for the investigation, the informant said detectives were “acutely aware” of the need to get results.
