The 'Brooks sighting' otherwise called George Burke.

Post  candyfloss on Thu 16 Mar 2017, 10:07 am

Seeing as there doesn't seem to be a thread I can find I will start this one.


This information came from the McCann family so I have to wonder.......

There is more info on link below to files, I have not copied it all.

I have followed the case in the press as I live in the Algarve. However my attention has been drawn by the news that an English citizen (George Burke) who returned to the village in the morning from Lagos and who says that he saw a couple with a child at about 06.00. Would this person not be suspicious due to being from the village and be returning 7 seven hours after the events? Please excuse my boldness and if I am bringing false accusations due to lack of information, I apologise again but feel that I have to share my preoccupation. I hope this does not make you lose time.

Good luck

External Inquiry Report

Date: 2007/12/04
Place: Lagos Marina, Lagos.
Responsible Officer: Inspector Joao Carlos

Description and Result of Inquiry:

On this date I went to the abovementioned place with the purpose of gathering elements related to the previously mentioned information about a supposed sighting of Madeleine McCann, by a British individual named George Brooks in the early morning of 4th May 2007.

Once I arrived at the scene, I checked that there was effectively a restaurant establishment on the first floor of the complex, called Pizza Hut. This establishment was closed, because of the opening hours. However, in order to collect information, I went to another establishment called “Lite Bites” which is next door and where there was an employee, who identified herself as GS, of British nationality.

During our conversation, she said that she has worked there since May of this year, the owner of the space being George Brooks, identified by the enclosed photocopy of his passport, which she provided.

She said that the whereabouts of the owner were unknown since the 21st September 2007. On this date he collected....

(following page 8 is missing)
















From Michael Wright's statement:
As for additional information I would like to add that on Sunday, 6 May I went to the pizzaria in PdL and bought a large quantity of pizzas. I was attended by a girl from Liverpool. I explained to her my relationship to the McCanns and she told me that her father 'George' had seen a man carrying a child in his arms in the early morning of 4 May in the resort. I asked her if her father would speak about this to the Portuguese authorities. I don't know if the information was ever investigated.

05 May 2007

The police are checking out one possible sighting about eight hours after Madeleine disappeared. Just before dawn a motorist said that his car headlights picked out a couple on the road; they had a child with them and, according to him, it looked as if they were trying to avoid being seen.

- Sky News bulletin


I'll have to refresh myself on all this. And not got the time at the moment.

I just seem to recall that there was reports of K and G (on their own) out 'searching' before dawn... But then they didn't 'physically search'... And this sighting popped up quite quickly to sort of then get morphed into some Marina/boat type scenario but was played down and pretty much cast aside.... (if memory serves).

Was also that other witness who claimed he saw Gerry drunk and staggering (swigging from a bottle) in the early hours as well.... Can't recall who that was now...

Will come back to it.

I like the quote from Susan Healy in the video that Gerry and Kate were good parents who were watching the apartment from their table at the restaurant.

This needs to be added to all their other achievements and attributes that lesser mortals can only strive for.

...and Michael Wright is the man in the strange beach photos with Gerry that are very odd.
