Here is a thought. If the British police had got involved a lot earlier, then it might not cost so much to do the review.

Excellent thought Diane - perhaps we should suggest that to the papers that are so keen on getting the antis riled up again!!! It may also be useful to point out how much police time and tax payers money was spent looking for Shannon Matthews, when all the time her mother had had her kidnapped so that she could embezzle 'sympathy money' from the Great British public.

Jean, Pedro

A small team of people/detectives in Britain constantly reviewing information, working the McCanns (they got the files translated and their detectives did a heap of work), would have cost far less than a review having to start from scratch. Once questions started being asked about the investigation conducted by Amaral, the British police should have (and it was suggested many times on various fora/blogs) taken a more proactive role. The cost savings by not being involved from an early stage were false savings, and resulted in far too much time lost on the investigation.

I dont know if it would have made a difference in finding Madeleine but it would certainly mean that such an extensive review would not be required now.

Diane - You are right of course - but the powers that be in GB didn't want to upset the Portuguese by insisting that, as Madeleine is a little British girl, we should be completely involved. The chance of finding Madeleine has diminished greatly now we are nearly five years down the line. What a price to pay for diploma!! What is all this rubbish we talk about being a united Europe - we will never be that as long as governments such as Portugal are involved.

I met Brian Kennedy (Sale Sharks) last week and asked him if he was still involved, and he said he was, but looking for Madeleine was like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack, but he will never give up. What a fantastic man he is.

with all do respect, but I disagree with this:

"it would certainly mean that such an extensive review would not be required now."

"The chance of finding Madeleine has diminished greatly now we are nearly five years down the line".

It could be not easy to solve this, but it can be done, she can still be found.

Take a look at Shawn Hornbeck, Natascha Kampusch, Jaycee Dugard.

These cases proves it.

I know Pedro - but these three were found in the same country they went missing from, their home country, which somehow makes it different. Madeleine wasn't kidnapped close to her home in England, she was taken whilst in a foreign country, and she could be anywhere in the world. She could be in Spain, Morocco, any of the Arab countries or even Australia. We are all still looking, and it won't be easy to solve, but rest assured that I for one will never give up. I will always be prepared to do anything if it will help find her.

"it would certainly mean that such an extensive review would not be required now."

Of course it wouldnt be needed because the people they are interviewing now would have been interviewed then and it would have been current. It is much harder to do a cold case than a current case. Not only are they reviewing, they are also verifying and that should have been done at the time. Another thing, Scotland Yard would have routinely reviewed what they had done, breaking it up into manageable packages, and much more timely. It is a huge job to try to review such a big case, with so many leads, after so long.

"The chance of finding Madeleine has diminished greatly now we are nearly five years down the line".

Sad but true. Pedro, Madeleine would not look like the little girl that was stolen. To all of us, we still see in our minds, the lovely little toddler but she is bigger now. Much bigger. And as Jean rightly says, Madeleine could be anywhere at all. Saying that it will be harder to find her now is totally different from saying that we shouldnt be looking, of course we should.
