Absolutely not! Send even more over at the expense of the tax payer if it means that little girl can be brought home safely. Hell, I'd pay for it out of my own pocket if I had the money!

re: Missing child in Portugal - Madeleine McCann

As much as i have sympathy with the family at this really bad time, yes im no perfect parent myself but some peoples brains go out of the window when on holiday even worse abroad!! This family is paying the consequences enough without my input on it, just hope this child is found safe & unharmed without anything sinister untoward as i get the feeling

Yes it is, it's their job to make sure the Portugese police are doing their job properly and report back to the family on developments.

Would you have the same opinion if you knew there had been 6 family liason officers working with the Soham families?

I'm questioning how many it needs, not the actual need for one at all. And yes I would question why Soham needed 6 if thats what happened.

Seriously Dave, if you read the book Holly Well's dad wrote you would see how invaluable family liaison officers are to these families.

re: Missing child in Portugal - Madeleine McCann

"It was hours before the local police turned up and we're talking two bobbies that totally downplayed the incident and said that Maddie had maybe just wandered off."

Maybe they said that in order to try to reassure the parents that she probably hadn't come to any harm. They are hardly likely to say "OMG she's probably being raped and murdered!" are they? I think it's unfair of the relatives to be criticising the police.

Which is probably why the police try to play it down in the hope that it will all turn out OK.

Responding to criticism that the police had been slow to respond, Mr Encarnacao said officers arrived at the scene 10 minutes after being alerted to the disappearance.

An investigation unit began work within 30 minutes, he added.
