Detectives now have less than three months of guaranteed Government funding to continue to unravel an 'important' new tip. A source close to the investigation, codenamed Operation Grange, revealed last month that they are working on a final theory that Maddie was kidnapped by a European trafficking gang.

Detectives have explored dozens of theories about Maddie's disappearance from being snatched by paedophiles and murdered during a botched burglary to being accidentally killed by her parents. Despite nearly 9,000 potential sightings across the globe police have struggled to unearth any new clues.

But in Operation Grange's potentially final few months of searching they are concentrating solely on the fact she was sold by child traffickers – her parents' and their first team of private investigators' initial hunch – and could still be alive and possibly be living in Europe or North Africa.

Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook

Interesting, and sloppy journalism, but I`m sure they are meaning to say that `Detectives` means the PJ, as they are the only ones that have included the parents. Operation Grange`s investigative remit did not include the parents.

It sounds as if they`re giving credence to the parents` `first team of private investigators` and it will close with `taken by child traffickers and living in Africa` and Dave Edgar will get a medal for service to McCann, Queen and Country.

I do wonder if the writers of stories like this are doing it deliberately to convey the idea that there probably was parental involvement in the McCann case too.

Hmmm. I wonder why this report of an "abductor" has surfaced after all these years. There has never been, as far as I know, any evidence until now to suggest what might have happened to this little girl.

A witness to the "abduction" comes forward after 35 years - baloney!

This case attracted little, if any, publicity at the time. It must have been at least 10 years before I ever heard of it.

Sounds like a load of rubbish to me.   Police, consulate etc taking no action (she says she reported it).    Do these people get paid for such made up stories ?

Siobhan Prescott, 25, claims she woke to find her one-year-old daughter Harper crying as a dark-haired woman in her 40s attempted to pick her up out of her cot at the five star King Evelthon Beach and Hotel Resort in Chloraca Bay, Cyprus.

The horrified mother claims she was powerless to react because she was sleeping naked, so screamed out for her partner Simon Smith who was on the balcony of their room.

Powerless to react WTF!!  How absolutely pathetic, another load of codswallop.  I expect we will see a few more in the next few weeks.

This mother who was terrified of the 'kidnapper' woman seeing her boobies is obviously a fan of Victoria beckham as she has given her daughter the same silly name - HARPER - as Victoria gave her own daughter.

Perhaps the baby was screaming for reasons unrelated to a kidnap - the maid came in to help, picked up the baby - the mother awoke from after lunch drinks maybe - and was confused...?

More garbage

Post  Andrew on Tue 21 Mar 2017, 2:23 pm

A nonsense story.

Probably more like the mum was in an alcohol-induced deep sleep, dad was out on the balcony having a smoke and both were oblivious to their little baby crying.

So the maid comes in to try and calm the baby down. Or something along those lines.

Snipped:

The woman said something in another language, before bursting into tears and trying to flee the room - but stopped to make a phone call from the room phone.

I like the comment at the end from the hotel after initially confirming the incident - clearly the vital word "not" was omitted from the first statement.

"Do not correspond to reality".

Was Ms Prescott covered up in bed or not? She says that she couldn't get up because she was starkers but also asks why would a maid come in when someone was lying naked on the bed?

If the latter, the maid had already had an eyeful!

It's more or less identical to the Mail's version.

I don't know what the situation is as regards payment if stories are copied in different papers.

There's another one here.

If I had to make a guess as to the origin of the story, I would say that it was thought up by a man/men trying to prove that children can be abducted from right under your nose.

A suitable family is found and given a freebie holiday in return for appearing in the papers.

I say man/men plotted this because our damsel in distress and her child had to be rescued from the nefarious cleaner by her boyfriend.

It never occurred that a mother would defend her own child rather than needing someone big and manly to rescue them so, when this was questioned, they needed to come up with an excuse and quickly. The best they could come up with is that she was naked.

IMO and just purporting a theory

The story is certainly a figment of somebody's imagination!

Interestingly, there is no mention of where in the U K the family lives. Do they even exist in those names?

The only Siobhan Prescott I can find is in Salford but Simon Smith isn't there too.

There is no such place as Chloraca Bay. The hotel does exist however and is about a 5 minute drive from me.
