I'm amazed that Donal of all people has challenged the truth of these reports.

Here's a quote from MWT on the This Morning website.

We have a rise of potential child abduction in the summer months, when days are longer, and children play outside later
– Mark Williams-Thomas

He's still following the usual script.

On @itvthismorning at 10.35 with a family who were at the Anastasia Beach complex Cyprus when the child abduction occurred




Mark Williams-Thomas ‏@mwilliamsthomas · 3 hrs3 hours ago
@SonicUtd yes - around 50 people moved from the hotel concerned & 2 families came home . So something occurred to worry people



Mark Williams-Thomas ‏@mwilliamsthomas · 3 hrs3 hours ago
Research shows for child abduction murder victims: 46.8 % of victims were dead within 1 hr - within 3 hours 76.2 % & 86.5% within 24hrs

It's interesting that Jim Gamble and Donal McIntyre are actively trying to downplay this incident when their role is usually to whip up the hysteria.

Perhaps the spin isn't having the desired effect this time so they are trying to distance themselves (and the McCanns) in case of a backlash.

Or maybe Jim Gamble is trying to keep a low profile at the moment.

Not sure if his story was relating to what happened last year or the most recent one,he was quite a strange guy his eyes were darting all over the place.He said he decided to come home from the holiday and when the interviewer asked why he came home he suddenly could'nt hear.

Jim gamble was on also and one of the things he said was,if you want to keep your children safe "look after them your self" or words to that effect.

So, after the hysteria of an alleged kidnap attempt, the place is on high alert and swarming with police with the kidnappers long gone, this is now the safest hotel in Cyprus and yet they decide to go home. Morons.

This hotel is going to be yet another McCann victim isn't it?


You echo my thoughts Poe. Just said to hubby last night"why the hell would you move miles away to another resort, to a hotel that had nothing to do with this when the hotel you are in will be on high alert?"
Surely you would go home or stay put.
The Cypriot police have many faults but there is no way this island could have a scandal like this go unchecked.
Why would a gang be operating around a busy hotel in daylight, hanging around for days filming and interacting with children?
These sort of crimes are opportunist and whilst they could happen anywhere in the world this is an island with only 2 airports on the Greek side and 1 over the green line. Yes kids could be smuggled over the border into Turkey but that is a 4 hour boat ride.
Highly unlikely and I doubt there are paedo rings here ordering British kids to be snatched from hotels.
The guy who had his child snatched last year didn't bother to report it to the Cypriot police. Come on! If that was my child I would hardly accept the opinion of the hotel manager. Cops here now! And it would certainly be all over the press too. Home and away.
So where did they dig this guy up and was the second incident a set up to further bolster the abduction of Madeleine farce?

Why are the Sun not covering the story, as the Mirror, Star and Daily Record are. The holiday makers are supposedly from Scotland and Ireland you would expect something in the Scottish Sun surely.

It is getting totally out of hand now. This is also from the Cyprus Mail

Hotel manager Giannos Michaelides tells a different story. “I never told them not to call police or that they have their child and that’s it. I do not know to which hotel manager they refer to but I was the one here that day,” Michaelides told the Cyprus Mail, adding that his version of the story is quite different.

“The father came to the reception desk saying that his daughter disappeared. I gave instructions to the staff to start looking for her and we found her half an hour later, walking alone in a street behind the hotel. If my memory serves, the family was either leaving that very day or the morning after,” he said.

I know what I believe .

As an aside a FB friend of mine who lives in Cyprus stated this morning that the story is true because she has friends who live that side of the island. I messaged her to ask if they were in the hotel at the time thinking it would be good to hear a first hand report.
Her answer was "they live really nearby." So that will be right then?
A prime example of people believing the MSM rubbish over factual reporting and getting caught up in the whole McCann nonsense.

I am of the school of thought that in the case from last year , the child had probably wandered off and the poor lady had found her and was taking her back to the hotel
There are lots of urban myths around child abductions and kidnapping, the Disneyland one and the child who wandered out of nursery, got abducted and killed but nothing has appeared in the papers as it would ruin a big criminal investigation is another. Abduction is the modern day version of the bogeyman

According to the hotel manager the child was found wandering alone so suddenly the father says he found her in the arms of a woman. I doubt there was a woman. Story embellished to tie in with this latest over reaction?
And why would a gang of child snatchers return to the very same hotel as last year? There are hundreds of hotels in Cyprus.
Eau de rat.

Latest update from C Mail has a holidaymaker backing up the official story. A young man was seen filming and some parents got the wrong idea. Situation escalated. The young woman nearby the 19 year old man was unconnected to him.
The holidaymaker also said it was direspectful to compare this case to Madeleine McCann.

The British media reporting on the alleged attempted kidnapping of three youngsters at a Protaras hotel, “has been completely blown out of proportion and it’s all wrong,” an eyewitness has said.

The tourist, who wanted to remain anonymous, told the Cyprus Mail that while he wasn’t part of the wedding party that was taking place at the Anastasia hotel at the time, he witnessed what happened firsthand.

“At some point we heard a large commotion and screams. Somebody attacked a young man yelling “paedophile, paedophile” and then suddenly a group of around 50 people were chasing him.

We joined them and chased two people to the front desk, a man and a woman.

Police came and took the young man in custody – a 19-year-old Bulgarian — but let the woman go because it turned out that she had nothing to do with the incident and that she just happened to be there.

That’s what really happened, nothing more,” said the holidaymaker, adding that he was appalled after reading news reports on the story.

British media reported that a gang of three persons –two men and one woman, all Romanians- were filming their kids and trying to lure them away to a pick-up truck and that their attempt was foiled at the last minute by a passerby.

The reports said that the man and the woman were dragged by the holidaymakers to the reception where police were notified.

The third gang member left in a getaway car which crashed a short while after leaving the hotel.

It was also reported that the gang was 18-person strong and that the Romanians where stalking children throughout the week posing as hotel waiters.

“They said that child snatchers were posing as hotel staff. That’s completely ridiculous, I have no idea where they got that from,” the holidaymaker said.

“I also noticed that some have been connecting this incident to the Madeleine case. That is both wrong and disrespectful,” stressed the holidaymaker, referring to the famous case of then three-year old Madeleine McCann who disappeared from her room while holidaying with her family in a holiday resort in Portugal in 2007

From Andrew's link, and I see Clarence is in full flow again!


Detectives hunting for Maddie McCann should examine any possible links with a foiled child abduction plot in Cyprus, the family's spokesman has said.



The McCanns’ spokesman Clarence Mitchell told the Daily Star: "The question of whether child traffickers were involved in Madeleine’s abduction was always one line of investigation among many."
"If there is any suggestion of a connection between this incident and others in the wider European region than that is a matter for Operation Grange to investigate and to liaise with the Cypriot authorities."



I thought he wasn't their spokesperson ? confused

Anyone else think it's a wee bit odd that Kevin from Edinburgh does a quick change of outfit in his This Morning interview - starts off in a red T shirt and ends up in the later clips in a white jumper. I know the weather is rubbish here but he could just have turned up the heating for the sake of continuity. How long were the camera crews hanging about his house.

Found this on the GA donation site this morning.
Official reply from the High Commission for Cyprus to these Mitchell inspired LIES

Statement on recent media reports on an alleged child abduction incident in Cyprus

We have been following various media reports in the UK regarding the alleged child abduction case at the Anastasia Beach Hotel in Cyprus. We fully appreciate the concerns of parents regarding the safety of their children. The allegations are taken seriously by the authorities in Cyprus.
The Police responded rapidly to complaints made by British nationals that an unknown man was taking pictures and approaching children at the hotel grounds.
The individual, a 19 year old foreign national, was taken into custody for questioning. He has been living in Cyprus with his parents for the past few years and has no police record. His mobile phone, personal computer and home were thoroughly searched by the Police and nothing incriminating or suspicious was found.
The Police also took statements from the British parents who filed the complaint, as well as from the children themselves. Their statements did not corroborate the allegations concerning a possible abduction plan on the part of the said foreign national.
All allegations were duly examined and no evidence was found to support them.

The various press reports in the UK alleging a planned abduction of children from the hotel by a group of foreign nationals are, therefore, unsubstantiated.
In view of the fact that due process has been followed, the Cyprus government considers that the news stories in the UK media do not reflect the facts, thus unfairly tarnishing the good reputation of Cyprus.
The Cyprus Government has excellent co-operation with the competent British authorities in many fields, including crime and justice affairs. The Cyprus Police has been in continuous contact and is cooperating with the British High Commission in Cyprus regarding this matter.
Cyprus is a hospitable holiday destination that receives almost 2.5 million visitors a year. It is a family friendly destination with one of the lowest crime-rates in the EU and across the world and continues to be one of the safest tourist destinations. 19 June 2015
