    It’s the rear window on these pics where I can see a girl standing, almost like that window has been photoshopped pre publication to hide her. I’m thinking I’m seeing things not there now though, but can someone humour me by taking a look please?!

    More likely to me that you’d put the toy out of the way to more easily pick up a sleeping child

    I think the port is alvor the reflection of the statue in the window of the van looks like the fisherman sculpture in reverse on the seafront from a distance

    From what I recall at the time, this was the working theory- that cuddle cat was shoved up on the ledge/shelf, simply to put it out of the way

    Triangulation allows a fairly accurate location of a phone. (Phones rarely use just one tower if there are others within range. Basically, they gather the signal from three towers and see where they meet in the middle. Other variables are factored in as well.)

    Also, strength of the phone's signal on the tower (mast) can give a fairly accurate distance of the phone from the tower.

    Same! Very frustrating, I was so sure it would be easy to get to.

    I wonder if anyone that’s handy with Google Earth can go back to 2007 and see how close they get?? The area may be more built up now than it was then - there were lots of structures and gated car parks around the port on the most recent Maps.

    In photo of VW campervan near ocean I marked a pattern of 4 bushes.
    In photo of Praia do Barranco I marked the same 4 bushes and also very roughly I added the front of the campervan.

    It could just be where the umbrella lives, I always used to have one in the boot of my car.

    It could be the resorts internet, too.
    If he ever used it then his phone would remember that.
    Maybe this is what happened. Maybe when they questioned him in 2013 he said he wasn't there but then they got the logs from OC and they got his phone logged there.
    This is just one of the possibilities.

    Yes, it is another possibility. Though I know that I read or heard on a MSM video that his phone was within 100 metres (or feet?) from the Ocean Club.
    If I can ever remember where I saw or heard that, I will post the link.
