***


 
“I can’t imagine what they are experiencing, probably pain without measure. I want to assure them that the professionals are doing the best they can.”
- Chief Inspector Olegario Sousa speaks to reporters.

“They felt their children were safe. They were maybe lulled into a false sense of security.”

“There’s absolutely no way Kate and I are involved in this abduction.”
- A month after Madeleine went missing, Gerry McCann comments for the first time on speculation about their role.

- Sousa confirms that police think Madeleine may be dead.

***


 
“Despite there being so much we wish to say, we are unable to do so, except to say this: we have played no part in the disappearance of our lovely daughter Madeleine.”
- Gerry McCann speaks out after flying back to England.

***


 
“I’ve been a detective at the most senior level for 30 years and have never seen such a witch-hunt, or one based on such flimsy evidence.”
- Ex-London police chief Lord Stevens defends the McCanns.

***


 
“There was a certain hastiness.”
- The head of Portugal’s police Alipio Ribeiro says detectives were too quick to name the parents as suspects.

***


 
“While we were having breakfast, Maddie said ‘Mummy why didn’t you come when we were crying last night?'.”
- A police statement made by Kate McCann is leaked to a Spanish TV station.
