Picture of missing Madeleine released as she may look now...This is one of two new posters being released by the Find Madeleine Campaign which show Madeleine McCann as she was aged three, and how she might look now, aged six. Madeleine was abducted in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on May 3, 2007.  PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Friday May 1, 2009.  The picture has been created by an expert forensic imaging artist based at the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, in the USA, who had access to photographs of both Kate and Gerry at around the same childhood age and used the latest computer technology to create the new image from their paternal and maternal lines.

Almost two years to the day British toddler Madaleine McCann went missing.  No suspects have ever been charged, no real leads have been found and no credible witnesses have come forward.

No trace of her, alive or dead, has ever been found.  It seems she vanished off the face of the earth.

The Portuguese police have abandoned the case, reduced it to the lowest level even though they have a very effective abductor working their resorts.  If whoever took her sold her then he will certainly be encouraged to take another child.  And if Maddy was sold for a price you can guarantee it was a high one.

Kate and Gerry recently appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show on US television

In the intervening two years Maddy’s parents, Gerry and Kate McCann have suffered badly at the hands of the Fleet Street press.  But later a  full apology from the Daily Express and the Star was given.

Most recently there has been a huge backlash in the town of Praia Da Luz with posters being torn down and splashed with paint.  The economic downturn has hit the town hard, and the Ocean Club, where the abduction took place, has made 60% of it’s staff redundant.  It is clear that the hotel and the town are unhappy with the bad image the abduction has given them, and the McCanns are a convenient scapegoat.

A new documentary about Maddy’s abduction will be screened on 7th May on Channel 4.

So what do we do now?

Well we could petition the Foreign Secretary to put more pressure on Interpol to work the case.

We could write to the Portuguese Ambassador to Great Britain to express our ongoing concern over Maddy’s disappearance and the subsequent lack of leads.

Above all we need to renew a focus on finding Maddy again.  There is not the smallest shred of proof saying she has died, and if she is out there then she must be found.

  1. There is something about the eyes. Look hard at the pictures and the eyes. Maddy has a single “keyhole” on one eye or a “colomboma”. It is a rare condition. On some of the pictures, there is no flaw, in others it’s in both eyes, in others the flaw goes through both sides of the eye while the real flaw is in the bottom portion of the eye, only. Some pictures, her hair is red, others golden blond and yet others, ash blond. Meaning it would appear the pictures being posted are of more than one child, some photo threads show a collage of 11 to 13 different pictures which seem to be different girls. Some of the “girls” have dimples, straight or gappy teeth, rounder fuller faces etc. Who is really being had here?

    Come under this reference. Today one person at a forum has asked me a question. I have made two horoscopes. One belongs to the girl, and second her mother.
    The girl is live. It have taken away abroad on water. Probably, for pedophilia? I yet did not assort its horoscope.
    I have deduced time of a birth only on the basis of these data. If parents confirm them, the situation such as I means and has described. About respect Seth.
