'WE NEED TO CATCH THEM' Madeleine McCann case must be solved to stop it happening again, ex Met detective tells Good Morning Britain

Hmm, on GMB this morning we heard this...….


'WE NEED TO CATCH THEM'
Madeleine McCann case must be solved to stop it happening again, ex Met detective tells Good Morning Britain




MADELEINE McCann's disappearance must be solved to stop it from happening again, a former Met detective has warned.

The little girl disappeared more than a decade ago, with almost £12million funnelled into the Scotland Yard investigation.


But former counter-terror detective David Videcette warned every lead into the little girl's disappearance needed to be investigated, whatever the cost.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, the seasoned cop warned: "If she had been abducted, then we need to catch whoever did that because it will happen again.



"However much money we spend on this case, we'll save on the next case if we catch that person and that's where we need to look at."

Mr Videcette added that the success of an investigation could not be based on the cost - adding: "Good investigations take time."

The debate comes after it was revealed Met Police had applied to the Home Office for another round of funding to continue their investigations into Maddie's disappearance.

Madeleine was three, nearly four, when she went missing from her family's holiday flat in Portugal on May 3, 2007.



Her parents, Gerry and Kate McCann, had left her sleeping with her siblings while they had dinner at the hotel's restaurant - only realising about 10pm that she was gone.

Since then, there have been reported sightings of the youngster, who would be aged 15 now, across the world.


Mr Videcette pointed out the investigation had not been handed an "open chequebook", saying police would always be justifying what the money would be spent on.

But founding member of Scotland Yard's undercover unit Peter Bleksley argued: "There has to be a point where they say 'you know what we have to put this file in the too difficult tray because quite frankly we are unable to solve it'.

"How much more money has to be ploughed into this, are there still live investigate threads that are going to potentially lead to some kind of resolution 11 years on."

He added: "At some stage, this has to stop."

The debate sparked a reaction online, with many agreeing with Mr Videcette's logic that the perpetrators needed to be caught.

One wrote: "Finally someone talking sense regarding the investigation costs for the Maddie McCann case... ‘the offender needs to be stopped, they will do it again’ thank you David I totally agreed with everything you said."

But another added: "They're still not one iota further forward than they were the day she disappeared. There is no justification for continuing with this investigation."

A Home Office spokesperson said: “We have received and are considering a request to extend funding for Operation Grange until the end of March 2019."


The spokesperson added: "Special Grant funding is usually available to police forces when they face significant or exceptional costs.

"The cost of Operation Grange – which, to date, is £11.6m – has been met through Special Grant funding.”

A new name (to me anyway) giving his wisdom (?) on the case.

Oh yes we need to catch those responsible but no it's very unlikely that the same people will do it again.

He makes it sound as if there is a serial abductor on the loose; if there was, would he /she / they really have made no further attempts in more than 11 years to take another child?

Absolute nonsense as far as I'm concerned.

"If she had" doubts there from the start of the article, for me, kinda make the rest of it pointless, Imo.



Speaking on Good Morning Britain, the seasoned cop warned: "If she had been abducted, then we need to catch whoever did that because it will happen again.
