I thought it was just me. My computer was really slow this p.m. so I deleted all my browsing history etc to clear off the caches or whatever they're called, then I couldn't find the CMoMM site, or this one actually. Fortunately I'd saved the website addresses on a Word document, so I could copy and paste them. Very strange things going on at the moment, unless Forumotion is having a nervous breakdown.

Very Happy

To me, the pumpkin girl looks far older than three.

The costume itself seems an odd choice for a little girl who likes dressing as a fairy or princess (as per the Christmas videos) and is very extravagant for an outfit that can only be worn once a year. Remember Kate thought that a holiday outfit from Gap & Monsoon, which would get many weeks wear and could then be handed down to Amelie, was an indulgence.

To be fair, you could buy those pumpkin outfits in Asda for a fiver a few years ago, I remember always wishing that sort of thing had been available when my daughter was young, as I would most certainly have got it for her being that I always had the nickname Pumpkin for her. Also, as Kate and I are the same age, I can vouch that there were no such costumes available when we were young, so I do think the pumpkin outfit is Madeleine.

There was one strange pic of what was supposed to be Madeleine wearing a red jacket on a swing and everything about the pic seemed to be from quite some time ago and I always believed that the girl in that pic was Kate in the very early 70's imo

It has all gone so quiet, just wondering if they are back from their Christmas break yet. All that hype before Christmas and not even a morsel. Wonder what is going on. Any new suspects on the horizon Smile

Sunday Express:We must never give up on Maddy

Post  Guest on Sun 10 May 2015, 8:54 am


Didn't think she was referred as Maddy,but never mind.
Is the end nigh,have Grange found their get out with some unknown burglar who just happened to want a child instead of other goodies.

EXPRESS COMMENT: We must never give up on Maddy
Eight years on, police may be close to solving the riddle of Madeleine McCann’s disappearance. JAMES MURRAY, who has covered the case from the start, says the probe must continue.
By James Murray
PUBLISHED: 00:01, Sun, May 10, 2015

ON TUESDAY a family will gather for a small birthday party. Carefully chosen gifts will be offered, birthday cake eaten and cherished memories re lived.

Although the house will be filled with love and hope there will also be a feeling of emptiness as Kate and Gerry McCann and their 10-year-old twins Sean and Amelie remember much missed Madeleine, who should be celebrating her 12th birthday in the bosom of her family.

Instead, her whereabouts are unknown and nobody knows whether she is even alive. As the election dust settles in the weeks ahead, questions will undoubtedly be asked about how much more should be spent trying to crack the mystery.

Some pragmatists will argue that the £10million or so given by the Home Office to finance Scotland Yard’s Operation Grange “Maddy Squad” investigation is enough.




They will call for the squad to be broken up, so the elite detectives can return to their jobs with homicide command.

They will also argue that further probes should be paid for by the McCanns, with the money in their Madeleine Fund. It is my firm belief that Home Secretary Theresa May should resist those demands because it seems the truth is finally beginning to emerge.

Grange officers have at last established a proper, professional working relationship with their Portuguese counterparts which is producing results. Certain people have been identified and interviewed.

Their alibis and their reactions are being scrutinised as never before. Some have been cleared of any involvement but probes into others continue. One of the greatest achievements of the Grange team has been detailed analysis of phone records, showing roughly who was active on networks at key times on the evening of May 3, 2007, in the Algarve resort.

Portuguese officers, guided by Grange detectives, are now in a position to ask people what they were doing in Praia da Luz during that evening and why did they call or text so and so?

Layers and layers of wrong leads and useless information have now been peeled away, allowing officers to concentrate on the core facts.

Their dedication and graft has been appreciated by the McCanns and the friends who joined them on that fateful holiday, the so-called Tapas Seven: David and Fiona Payne, Russell O’Brien and Jane Tanner, Matthew Oldfield, his wife Rachael and her mother Dianne Webster.

Now we know, thanks to Grange, that the man Jane saw carrying a child near Apartment 5a of the Ocean Club was, in fact, an innocent holidaymaker. That in itself was a huge breakthrough.

Thanks to Grange we know that Maddy was almost certainly in the arms of a man seen heading down towards the sea by the Smith family from Ireland.

Photofits of the potential suspect have been released. Officers have also established a pattern of attacks on children in the Algarve, something Portuguese police did not manage, which could yet lead to a host of other sordid crimes being solved.

Madeleine McCannPA
Maddie's whereabouts are unknown and nobody knows whether she is even alive

Hopefully, the skills used by the Yard experts will be taken on board by the Portuguese, leading to better crime detection in the future.

A week ago friends of the McCanns joined villagers in Rothley, Leicstershire, to mark the eighth anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance. Kate and Gerry could not be there as they were visiting her seriously ill father Brian in Liverpool. In her place, Fiona Payne read out a poem, The Tree Of Hope.

On a tree children attached touching messages. One wrote: “Dear God, please help all the missing children in the world and bring them back to their families.

"Make sure they are in safe hands and are going to be reunited with their families. Please bring Madeleine back to us. Amen.”

I would challenge any cold-hearted cynic to look that child in the eye and explain why the Grange operation should be shelved.

IN A POSTING on their Find Madeleine site Kate and Gerry wrote: “We are also buoyed and reassured by the unwavering commitment and continued progress being made in the investigation.

We are really grateful to the Metropolitan Police team for their conscientiousness, patience, consideration shown to us nd above all, their will to find Madeleine and determine what happened. “Co-operation with and from the Portuguese police has, and still is, vital to the success of the investigation.

We are very appreciative of the joint working relationship established between the two forces.” After years of very little co-operation that acknowledgement is a milestone.

Now with the rifts put aside, Grange lead detective Nicola Wall has a golden opportunity to justify the millions spent with a breakthrough.

Lessons learned from Grange must now be adopted by all forces to improve the chances of other innocents like Madeleine, who had no control over their fate.

In a civilised society, no price should ever be put on a child’s life.

Why, why, why do our press continually denigrate the Portuguese ?

Yes and no I suppose it depends on your take on it,the piece about the phone records is interesting,but there again they could be totally ignoring the tapas lot phone records.
They might find a burglar is who is no longer around wot dunnit! moved away,disappeared,drunk in a bar in Mogadishu, they are unlikely to be waiting around are they.

I hope SY don't mean this particular field of expertise.

I think that line above sums it up, everything gone through, no stone left unturned, and now they are left with, as it says 'core facts'

Where has James Murray got this story from? To me there is nothing new - it just seems like cobbled together bits of heresay from past rubbish dished out by the MSM.

He would not have received info from SY. James Murray said himself at Leveson that, since Millie Dowler, the press`s relationship with the police has cooled right off. If anything, this info has just come from Clarence Mitchell and/or the McCanns to chime with Maddie`s birthday. IMO, judging from the zenophobic comment, it has definitely come from CM and/or McCanns.

Every sentence is ambiguous - if you are the optimistic sort, you will see it as positive, but the doubtful sort will receive it as meaning nothing. And that`s me Rolling Eyes

I had great difficulty getting past the first nauseating sentences about the forthcoming remembrance of Madeleine!

Note that there was a photo of a child supposedly at the 8th anniversary service - oh ye of little faith who thought that it never happened.......

Not sure yet what I think about the article overall - whether it's just the usual sycophantic drivel or whether as they say the truth is out there somewhere.
