    Differences in the times given by the McCanns and their friends are easily explained by a former FBI profiler :-

    http://www.truveo.com/Van-Zandt-hold.../id/3158676816#

    He says quite sensibly that the McCanns and their friends were in a relaxed situation - having dinner and a few bottles of wine with their friends. No-one was taking notes expecting to be interrogated about times later on.

    You have dinner with friends and during the course of the meal, some get up and go to the toilet and come back again - could you recount several days later the precise times of that? Or did you even notice?

    Surely it would be much more suspicious if the McCanns and their friends all came out with precisely the same timeline of events - right down to the minute?

    There has also been criticism of the variations in media reporting. One newspaper attributes an action to Gerry, another to kate. Given the sheer tsunami of reporting errors we've seen in this case, it really isn't a stretch to suppose that here is another questionable report about the case? yet there are people who persistantly attribute the discrepancies to the McCanns themselves - that they "cannot keep their stories straight". As if the McCanns were giving exclusive interviews to all the tabloids on a daily basis!

    And of course we have the problem of language. I speak several languages and I know how things get lost in translation. I have personal knowledge of a case where a woman told a German doctor that she was nervous about having surgery. This was translated into German but was later translated back into English. Except that instead of describing the woman as nervous, the doctor said she was "unstable" - quite a different meaning! Fortunately, in this case, all parties involved were able to discuss it and laugh about it and it was resolved, but imagine if this had been Kate McCann what a field day her attackers would have had?

    In the early days of this case, the tabloids were in competition to get new stories out fast and to H*ll with accuracy. Stuff got lost (or "found") in translation and the record was rarely set straight as the next batch of new falsehoods hit the news stands.

    Sadly, there are people who have neither the intelligence nor human decency to see how damaging the false stories have been and how essential it is to separate them from the facts of the case - which is that a little girl is missing and that she may still be alive.
    This is only my opinion

    Let the focus be on Madeleine




    Together we can make a difference

    An updated timeline published in May, 2011:

    BBC News, 13 May 2011

    British girl Madeleine McCann vanished aged three from a Portuguese holiday apartment in May 2007.
    A Portuguese police investigation which ran until July 2008, and a continuing high-profile international campaign run by her parents Kate and Gerry, have failed to locate her.
    At one stage, Mr and Mrs McCann, of Rothley, Leicestershire, and another British man - Robert Murat - were considered formal suspects in the case, but all three were later cleared.

    In the latest news, Portuguese police are conducting a review of the original investigation:

    17 March 2012
    A team of Portuguese detectives is re-examining the investigation into the disappearance of the three-year-old while in Praia Da Luz in May 2007.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...shire-17414919

    Scotland Yard began a review last May:

    9 September 2011
    British detectives reviewing the search for Madeleine McCann have held their first face-to-face meetings with Portuguese police chiefs.

    13 May 2011
    The Metropolitan Police are to "bring their expertise" to the search for Madeleine McCann, the Home Office says.

    Luisa Rodrigues said Portuguese police investigating Madeleine’s abduction questioned the convicted burglar about a spate of sex attacks at Algarve holiday villas in 2008, the year after the three-year-old vanished.

    She claimed DNA tests had put the recovering heroin addict, a former worker at the Ocean Club holiday complex in Praia da Luz that Madeleine vanished from seven years ago yesterday, in the clear.

    I think the other break ins and attacks should be added to the overall timeline. Latest information from the met gives nearly twenty attacks or attempted attacks of female children including at least one in pdl.
    The last known attack was in 2010 which rules out the convicted burglar as he had died by then, he was also of African origin whereas this man has been described as tanned so is white.

    you really should learn to read between the lines and more wider and discern sloppy and spun reporting.....there were no 20 attacks or attempted attacks in children...there were apparently reports of break ins/attempted robberies..(some of em quite STUPID sayng oh the man was headed for the COT!!!! )...a max of six over so many years and more as well were reported to include the intruder either sitting in a bed or reportedly attempting to molest the kids...far cry from some who say there is a mad rapist going around for ten years targetting british kids.....show me the evidence anyway....sheesh?..there is nothng to connect any of these rumours to the disappearance of MM...not a shred but I suppose any gipsy, paedo, drug user,drug dealer,smelly binman, hotel worker,etc etc will do....

    redwoods retiring soon, he better hurry up and solve the case hey?
