:waitasec: Has everyone quit searching for Maddy? I don't recall there ever being a large organized search party conducted by any certain group of lookers, does anyone know of any? What has the parents themselves physically done, or their family to locate and look for Maddy? This has been puzzling me for two days now. Then I began to realize I haven't seen or heard of searches early on or later on. I know they looked in the first hours for her. Other than that, not anything significant. I could be wrong, I wasn't keeping up word for word, report by report. I know countries do things differently than other countries. But it's basic 101, your getting back to the basics of abc 1 2 3. Walk the terrain with grids, volunteers, tracker dogs, door to door, searching through buildings, homes, and I don't see it. Why does it seem this search is over with before it actually even began? The money in the fund has pretty much sat dormant, with the only activity concerning it is discussion about it's growth, who contributed, naming the overseers, and what's is to be done or not done with it. But actually not alot has been done with it either. Just seems like all talk, no action. Find madeliene campaign, but nothing done to find her. Just talking heads saying find her. I'm confused, if it was my daughter I still would be walking the terrain, until I felt it had been searched to the best of our abilities. I would have to have proof she was taken out the country, or definately dead, but then I still would want my girls dead body back. What can still be done in our opinions to help move this case forward, what can we do. Start a petition to give to portugal police demanding more public information so that we can help locate her or find some kind of resovve instead of just a legal criminal resolve convicting the guilty. We still have a non criminal side to this case, finding maddy. I would almost be willing to let the perps go in order to find her, give proper burial, a resolve to honor her.
