Maddie: British Policy requires reopening of investigation

British police said they have identified 195 new opportunities for investigation into the disappearance Madeleine McCann, whose research in Portugal intends to reopen the case to end.

"Reopen the investigation," said Detective Andy Redwood today, "is the only way to know what happened to Madeleine McCann and close the case."

Redwood leads a team of 37 people from Scotland Yard who is reviewing all clues related, not only collected by the police of both countries and by private detectives hired by the family to find the missing child on May 3, 2007.

This team, said on Wednesday in a press conference, is working with the Judicial Police, which formed a similar group in Porto, consisting of "experienced detectives," particularly in cases of missing persons.

In this context, Redwood said he had already made seven visits to Portugal, "two at a senior level in a resort-four meeting with staff at the Port." It has also maintained "regular contacts" with the McCann family.

The amount of information, stressed, is "wide", totaling 40,000 tracks of which thousands of pages "need translation, delaying the process."

So far, only 25 percent was considered "the highest level" from two hypotheses, Madeleine may be alive or dead. "There is a genuine possibility of being alive," creased.

With this hypothesis in mind that today was released a photograph of Madeleine McCann worked by a forensic expert for an opinion which has nine years old who complete the 12 May.

At the same time, and only day of the fifth anniversary of the disappearance, she renewed public appeal for information.

Maddie disappeared on May 3 hotel room Ocean Club in Praia da Luz, Lagos, where he was installed with the family. At the time, parents dined with a group of friends at a restaurant near the site.

Madeleine McCann could be living with abductor, says Scotland Yard. Yard releases image of how Madeleine may look five years on and asks Portuguese police to reopen inquiry

Scotland Yard detectives released a picture of what Madeleine McCann may look like today as they said they had uncovered new information to suggest she could be alive and living with her abductor.
The senior officer leading an investigative review into the disappearance of Madeleine five years ago is calling on Portuguese police to reopen their inquiry into the case.

Releasing an age-enhanced image of Madeleine as she nears her ninth birthday on 12 May Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, of Scotland Yard's homicide and serious crime command, said: "We genuinely believe there's a possibility that she is alive. I want to make a direct appeal. If you know where Madeleine McCann is or if you have any direct information or evidence about what happened to her, then please make contact."

Redwood and his 37-strong team have identified 195 missed investigative opportunities in the 40,000 pieces of evidence they have examined from the Portuguese inquiry, the family's home force in Leicestershire, and the information gleaned by a team of private detectives hired by the McCann family since Madeleine went missing, aged three, from the resort of Praia de Luz on 3 May 2007.

"We are in a unique position seeking to draw together the three key strands of information about her disappearance," said Redwood.

He unequivocally dismissed the conspiracy theory promoted by the original Portuguese lead detective Goncalo Amaral that Madeleine's parents had anything to do with her disappearance.

He said detectives believe Madeleine was abducted in "a criminal act by a stranger".

Madeleine's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, worked closely with the Met to produce the new image of their daughter.

"Kate says she can see Madeleine's brother and sister Sean and Amelie in it as well as something of herself," said the family's spokesman, Clarence Mitchell. She and Gerry feel very positive and they hope it leads to the breakthrough they have been waiting for."

Redwood's team is sifting page by page through 100,000 documents within the 40,000 pieces of evidence, and are a quarter of the way through the exercise. They are working closely with a team of Portuguese detectives and liaising with law enforcement agencies across Europe and the world when necessary.

They are developing what they believe is "genuinely new information" in the hunt for the child. It is understood, though, that this is not based on any new possible sightings. The team is also pursuing the line of inquiry that after five years Madeleine might be dead.

It is understood that key areas being investigated by Scotland Yard which the Portuguese police failed to pursue include analysis of a huge amount of mobile phone cell site evidence that was gathered but never analysed. That evidence could help to trace any suspects who were around the resort.

They are also attempting for the first time to contact all the holidaymakers who were staying around the area of the Mark Warner Ocean club complex between 28 April and 3 May 2007, when Madeleine disappeared from her room while her parents were eating dinner with friends at a nearby tapas bar.

Officers are also focusing on any men in the area with criminal convictions that might indicate they are a danger to children, and investigating the backgrounds of resort staff, including examining whether any had suffered the loss of a child.

Commander Simon Foy, Scotland Yard's head of homicide command, said they would not stop until they discovered what had happened to Madeleine. The review inquiry which has cost 2m to date began after the McCanns appealed last year to David Cameron for Scotland Yard to investigate the case.

There are examples of children who have been abducted only to be found alive years later: Jaycee Lee Dugard was found alive 18 years after being snatched at the age of 11 from a bus stop in California; the Austrian schoolgirl Natascha Kampusch was found in 2006, eight years after being abducted aged 10; and Shawn Hornbeck, who disappeared aged 12 in 2002, was found four years later.

The decision on whether to reopen the inquiry in Portugal is in the hands of the country's attorney general. He has said he will only reopen the investigation if "new, serious and relevant evidence emerges". He was not available for comment.

Redwood said the police review team in Portugal were keen for this to happen. "[They] want to reopen the case They are a new group of investigators and they are completely engaged and totally committed."

Jim Gamble, former head of the UK's Child Exploitation and Online Protection unit, said the hunt for Madeleine had now been reignited. "The person who's done it knows they have done it," said Gamble. "They will be paranoid, and it is likely that someone close to them will see that paranoia, or that as the pressure builds someone close to them who knows they have done it, and who is no longer a friend, might come forward.

"One thing is sure: the person who did this will be watching and listening."

Potential witnesses are urged to call 0800 096 1011 within the UK or +44 207 1580 126 from outside. Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.

This is being reported in Australia as well. It was on Skynews, and is on all the online news sites.

On yahoo7 news, there is a survey as to whether or not we believe that Madeleine is still alive.


THis is direct to the poll


It is currently running at around 50/50 which just shows that a lot of people still think Madeleine is alive.
