30 kids lost in Portugal since Maddie went missing

THIRTY children have gone missing in Portugal since Madeleine McCann disappeared five years ago, official figures reveal.

The grim toll contradicts Portuguese claims her case was unique and abduction was rare.

Madeleine, who would now be nearly nine, was snatched from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on May 3 2007. Since then, 30 youngsters under 18 have vanished. But it also emerged an abduction alert system introduced in 2009 for cops and other law enforcement has NEVER been activated. This week law chiefs in Portugal snubbed a plea by Scotland Yard to reopen Madeleine’s case after a review unearthed 195 new leads.

And yesterday the Portuguese Attorney General Pinto Monteiro said British and Portuguese police weren’t even speaking.

He insisted there had been no formal request for Madeleine’s case to be reopened. When asked if he was having any talks with Brit cops he replied: “No.”

It was also revealed yesterday that details of over 100 calls to Crimestoppers about Madeleine in the days after she vanished were never handed to police. They mostly came from psychics. But Leicestershire cops said they were “over-run” with information.

Details of the calls have finally been handed to Scotland Yard.

Kate, 44, said on yesterday’s fifth anniversary: “Abducted children have been found many years following their disappearance.”

Prayers were said for Madeleine at a Mass in Woolton, Merseyside, where Kate and Gerry married. The couple marked the occasion at home in Rothley, Leicestershire.

This journalist, not exactly known for her investigative skills, does not give any breakdown of the 30 under 18s who have gone missing since Madeleine.

Even assuming her figure of 30 is correct (what is her source for this?) they could be teenagers who've done a bunk after conflict at home or some could be family abduction after a relationship breakdown - neither of these situations would be comparable to an almost 4 year old who allegedly was taken from her bed by a stranger.

You get ONE. MBMcC

Repeat for Spain and you get 10 results.
In fact two are duplicates, so 9
Top two are dead, but they can't find the bodies, father already in prison
All the rest have been 'ABDUCTED" by parent., or in one case an aunt.

And this is over the last 10 years.

unquote.

I tried the link but it doesn't work very well for me. Still - the above was researched by a retired DI - so it's more than good enough for me.
