I know GC, I am watching the news updates every hour and still nothing.

If the police over there think they know roughly where she is and they keep saying they have a artist impression why are they not moving more quickly?
I mean they probably are doing everything they can but time is ticking by.

As you say, if its awful for us waiting......what must her poor family be going through.

re: Missing child in Portugal - Madeleine McCann

On Saturday, police in the Algarve said they had a "profile" of a man they suspected of kidnapping little Maddy But a Portuguese daily claims the image they have put together is based only on the rear view of a man seen with a child in the area...........why would you put a image together of someone from behind???

its been nearly 4 days ago.......and nothing, its not looking good, BUT never give up hopesmile046.gif

She must have been round the other side of a shelf looking at the books when we first looked down there.

According to some of the judgements passed on this family in Portugal I'm a lousy parent and should have had both my children taken into care.
Thats totally different Willow, you did not make a decision to leave your child, she wandered off, its totally different.
Hope today brings some news, my thoughts are with them and the little girl.

If AccyWeb had a weekly award for the "BEST & SENSIBLE" postings on any particular thread, and I was the adjudicator, I would award it without hesitation to LESS for his contributions to this thread.

re: Missing child in Portugal - Madeleine McCann

Police searching for missing Madeleine McCann are investigating reports a man was seen dragging a girl towards a marina close to the Portuguese resort where she vanished.


A balding man was reportedly seen with a young girl heading towards the marina in the town of Lagos.

On Saturday, detectives said they had a "profile" of a man they suspected of kidnapping Madeleine McCann.

But a Portuguese daily newspaper claims the image they have put together is based only on the rear view of a man seen with a child in the area.
The paper, 24 Horas, said: "The person was seen from behind.
"We see more of the back of the head and the hair rather than the actual features in the portrait of the man that was seen with a child that night."

"If police in the UK were in this situation they would try to round out the picture," he said.
"The fact that Portugese police haven't done this suggests to me they may know more than they are letting on."

Everyone will have their own opinion on this situation and of course they are entitled to them ..... but some comments in this thread have only just stopped short of the mark of saying this family deserved what happened to them because of a moments misjudgement. That, I'm afraid, makes me very angry.

I'm sure no-one meant that Tinks, I for one was very shocked that she'd been left in the first place and surprised that the news reporters were making it out to be an ok thing to do. I wouldn't wish this on anyone and the poor little girl I go cold just thinking about it.

I have to say I'm with Tinks on this one.
I know it is sometimes hard through the forum to convey just what you mean, but this family were doing what they thought was safe, it didn't turn out that way in the end. Who are we to judge? After all we only know what the media reports, and we know that that can be far from the truth.

I was particularly touched by the villagers turning out to give this family their support.......support which God only knows, they need at this terrible time.

I hope this all ends with a favourable outcome, but it is beginning to have the Holly and Jessica feel to it.

When we are on a complex in Spain we could see our apartment from the restaurant, yes when our youngest where tired we went back and sat on the balacony having a beer .... but I can sort of see why they thought the kids would be safe. As Katex has already said, not many moons ago it was the norm at holiday camps like Pontins and Butlins.
