Help wanted re early Madeleine website content

Post  tigger on Sat 5 Jan - 7:46

I'm sure I've seen a request by the McCanns at an early date NOT to contact them, but to contact local police.

Can't remember if it was also in the blogs - I've gone through the early ones but can't see it.

Also looking for a photograph where the correspondence they got in PdL was sorted in cardboard boxes and one of them was labelled 'loopy' or something like that.
Struck me at the time that considering they'd already contacted psychics very early on, that labelling correspondence as loopy seemed curious. It would have to be very, very weird to compete with their own theories.

Far as I remember they always had some police number, somebody tried it, and it didn't work. and of course their own so called investigation number where nobody answered the phone, far as I remember.

And CEOP / JIm Gample asked people from holidaying in PDL to send their holiday photos to them or mccanns. What did they think police could find in those photos?

And in one point k8 was actively looking for one of the witnesses, who was same time in PDL. I wonder what she could tell.

Yes, she was chasing the witness, I saw a clip of the witness on youtube. She complained that she got sms's and a note pushed through her door and I believe Susan Hubbard also tried to get hold of her on behalf of Kate.

If anyone knows of this number which didn't work, I'd be very grateful.

I talk about an other witness "the nice mum be the pool". (they have harassed so many it's easy to lose count)

The family announced on 15 September 2007 that, beginning in a fortnight, they would be spending up to £80,000, from Madeleine's Fund, on a new publicity drive, involving newspaper, television and poster advertising in order to further publicise Madeleine's disappearance.[13] This will include posters in rural parts of Portugal and Spain and television advertisements, in Arabic, in Morocco.[14] In late October the McCanns set up a hotline + 34 902 300213, manned by private detectives, for people in the Iberian Peninsula and north Africa to phone with information.[15]

Hundreds of calls over Madeleine

The McCanns promoted an appeal hotline number
Almost 350 calls have been made after the parents of Madeleine McCann made a TV appeal for their missing daughter.
Kate and Gerry McCann filmed the plea at home in Rothley, Leicestershire, and showed footage of Madeleine opening presents in Christmas 2006.

The 347 new leads will be investigated by Spanish detective agency Metodo 3 with a "fine tooth comb".

Madeleine, four, vanished from the family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal on 3 May.

'Acted upon swiftly'

The couple remain official suspects, but have always denied any involvement in her disappearance.

Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns' family spokesman, said: "We are pleased with the calls and they are continuing to come in.

"Every single call is much appreciated and we are going through them with a fine-tooth comb. Any that need to be acted upon swiftly, are being acted upon swiftly."

He added: "We don't go into detail because if there is any significant information, we need to act on it before we talk about it."

The person who took Madeleine has it in their power to end our suffering

Gerry McCann

The McCanns sent a Christmas message to their daughter in the broadcast. They said their only Christmas wish was to have their daughter back.

In one of the clips Madeleine was shown opening a parcel containing a pink suitcase which she took on holiday in May.

The couple believe their daughter is still alive, and have employed private investigators in their search for her.

'Despair and anguish'

Writing in his internet diary, Mr McCann said Madeleine "should not be spending Christmas away from her loving family".

He wrote: "The person who took Madeleine has it in their power to end our suffering and will be able to appease their conscience that they have done the right thing- especially at this time of year."

He said the couple still had more than 100 Christmas cards to open.

In the first part of the video the couple talked about the possibility that someone knows what happened to their daughter.

They made a direct appeal to such a person to end their "despair and anguish".


The appeal included previously unseen pictures of Madeleine

Mr McCann said: "This special time of year is all about families coming together with love and peace.

"Clearly for us and the rest of our family it's going to be the hardest Christmas imaginable without Madeleine here."

Appealing for information, Kate McCann said: "You must understand that you hold the key to ending all this despair and anguish, for both us and Madeleine.

"At this time of year, when so many families are coming together we beg you to help us be reunited with Madeleine.

"Please do the right thing and come forward."

Speaking directly to Madeleine, Kate McCann said it "seems unlikely that you'll hear this but, just in case, it's Mummy and Daddy here...

"Just know how much we love you, Madeleine. We all miss you so much."

The couple appealed for anyone with information to call a confidential hotline run by a Spain-based private detective agency.

The official site
The official findmadeleine.com website was set up primarily as a vehicle to collect donations from the public. It must be said that the content of that site (site relaunched in Feb 2008), particularly in relation to Madeleine herself, was sparse and woefully weak. For example, in the 'About Madeleine' section, all it told us about Madeleine was that she was 'born 4 years ago'.

It appears clear that the original website, 'bringmadeleinehome.com', was set up, through the efforts of Philomena McCann, with genuine intentions of raising awareness of Madeleine's disappearance and helping to maintain her profile with the public. The aim being clearly stated in the website title: To bring Madeleine home.

When the website was relaunched a week later using a different domain name, 'findmadeleine.com', the motivation of the website had dramatically changed. It was still claimed to be about raising awareness but this was now subservient to the new driving goal of the site, which was to raise money through donations.

The website was relaunched (becoming the third version) on 01 February 2008, noticeably now without the running total of donations to Madeleine's Fund but with a vastly improved section on Madeleine herself.


Millions have contacted the Madeleine McCann appeal website. Who runs it? Three teenagers from Ullapool, 15/09/07
Millions have contacted the Madeleine McCann appeal website. Who runs it? Three teenagers from Ullapool Sunday Herald

By John Bynorth
15 September 2007

Inside the campaign HQ

TWO YOUNG people hurriedly stuff yellow Look For Madeleine wristbands into envelopes, surrounded by cardboard boxes containing thousands more earmarked for the campaign. Nearby, in the untidy garage store room, Madeleine badges and posters are awaiting delivery to supporters around the world who have donated £2 for the bands that symbolise the search for the missing four-year-old.

Policeman's son Calum MacRae, 18, is responsible for the campaign's website and distribution network for Madeleine's campaign from the unlikely location of the Loch Broom garage, on a windswept industrial estate on the outskirts of Ullapool, Wester Ross.

Despite Madeleine's parents, Kate and Gerry, both 39, now being treated by Portuguese police as suspects in her disappearance while on holiday in the Algarve, Calum claims there has been a recent surge in interest in the website and wristbands.

"There's no let-up," said Calum, whose Infohost firm hosts the family's official website, run using some of the £1 million in donations being sent to the privately run Madeleine's Fund: Leaving No Stone Unturned. "There's been a big increase in orders since they became suspects. Somebody came back 30 times, ordering 100 bands. Sometimes people just want one or two, so we throw a couple of extra bands in. It's difficult to get rid of some of the medium-sized bands as they don't fit many people. People would still want the Madeleine bands even if she was found. Her face is a mark. It's everywhere."

Calum, who has designed websites "since he was 10" is paid out of the global donations to the fund, which won't be contributing to the McCanns' legal costs.

He refused to be drawn on how much his team of six are paid, and the Sunday Herald's repeated calls to the fund's spokeswoman, Esther McVey, were not returned. He added: "I can't tell you that, it's not much honestly. We are just covering our costs. You would need to speak to the fund about that."

Calum is convinced of the couple's innocence and says he will continue to run the website even if they are charged and tried in Portugal. He said: "I know from speaking to Gerry on the phone that he is 100% innocent. They are definitely not guilty. Gerry is very determined to find his daughter. You can tell it in his voice when he talks on the phone. He wouldn't have done all this if they were guilty. If the fund is still going, we will continue the website even if they are charged and face trial. They wouldn't want us to back off ..."

He remains convinced "someone" in Portugal knows the truth about Madeleine's whereabouts, and the family yesterday launched an £80,000 TV, newspaper and billboard campaign, which will be translated into several languages primarly aimed at Spain, Portugal and other mainland European countries, beginning in two weeks.

Madeleine's uncle, John McCann, from Glasgow, said: "The main objective of the Madeleine fund is to leave no stone unturned in the search for Madeleine."

Calum became involved after Madeleine's aunt, Philomena McCann, his former schoolteacher in Ullapool, approached him four days after the girl disappeared on May 3.

He said his staff spent between "12 and 20" hours each week on the website and wristbands. Although he claimed to have lost money on an earlier stunt for Premier League footballers to wear Madeleine t-shirts, he is pressing ahead with the distribution of T-shirts to the public in return for £10 donations.

Calum said: "We stopped every other thing we were doing that day and put the Find Madeleine site straight on. It's pretty much full-time doing the website and bands. We just invoice the fund, but it's not expensive compared with what other companies would charge. We have to account for how many hours are worked. It's not for us to decide what we are paid, but the fund insist we are."

The website's English-based server crashed when 1.5 million users tried to watch a video of Madeleine shown at the Uefa and FA Cup finals.

Figures obtained by the Sunday Herald show the Find Madeleine website attracted as many people as Missing People, the established UK charity formally known as the National Missing Persons Helpline, on September 7, the day Kate and Gerry were named as suspects in the case.

They show that 400,000 people viewed the Madeleine site, compared to only 150,000 for www.missingpeople.org.uk which is responsible for issuing appeals for thousands of people who vanish across the UK and Europe. American interest accounted for 103,000 hits on the Madeleine site, with only 15,000 from Portugal, and around 20,000 each from European countries such as Spain and Germany, which the family are hoping to target with the poster campaign.

Calum also revealed how Kate checks Gerry's blog before it is emailed to the site. However, Gerry has only posted one message since his return to Britain last week. Calum added: "It has got crazy at times, we've even got people going on in places such as Kurdistan."

Another worker on the site, Rona Eddington, 18, the daughter of a senior police inspector in Ross-shire, said: "We've had people saying in emails we killed her and taken her away' and we hate you.' We don't know if they are genuine, but they are passed to the police, who chase them all up. We've had so many like that and have to filter them. The website is about supporting the family."

Rona's father, chief inspector Paul Eddington, said he had no problems with his daughter's involvement in the website following Leicestershire Police's decision to take Kate's diary and Gerry's laptop, which he used to write his blog, for their Portuguese counterparts to examine last week.

The Portuguese magistrate examining the case is expected to announce this week whether the couple will face further questioning.

"I view what my daughter is doing as a parent, rather than a police officer. In the unlikely event that the investigation did involve the website, I would take a pragmatic view and wouldn't seek to get involved," said Eddington.

Calum is already working on new ventures after spotting a market in missing-person websites. Last week he contacted the family of missing schoolgirl Rosemary Edwards, from Hampshire, after her father made an emotional TV appeal. He said: "I don't think we should be making money out of it, but I would love to do more stuff like this. We phoned up to see if they wanted a website for that missing girl, but they haven't called back."

Madeleine Web site gets 55 million hits, 18 May 2007
Madeleine Web site gets 55 million hits Reuters

By Peter Griffiths
Fri May 18, 2007 3:52pm BST

LONDON (Reuters) - A Web site set up to help find missing four-year-old Madeleine McCann has received more than 50 million hits, its operator said on Friday.

More than 7,500 people have left messages of support on the www.findmadeleine.com site and 55 million hits have been counted since its launch.

Thousands have downloaded appeal posters and forwarded an email chain letter started by Madeleine's family. The little girl disappeared from her bedroom at a hotel resort in Portugal on May 3 as her parents dined nearby.

"It is booming," said Calum MacRae, director of Infohost, the Scottish IT company behind the findmadeleine site. "We didn't expect this number of people.

"We had 10 million hits between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday -- our server just gave up, but we resolved that within five minutes."

The website www.bringmadeleinehome.com was launched on May 9 and it changed to www.findmadeleine.com on Wednesday.

Messages of support from across Europe, the United States and Australia have been posted on the site.

"You are in my thoughts every day," wrote Heidi from Finland. "I pray that she will be found soon safe and well."

Debbie Bates, from Australia, wrote: "As a mother of two, I cannot imagine for a moment what you are going through."

Parents Kate and Gerry McCann are taking "immense strength" from the messages, said family member Michael Wright.

"Their purpose is to turn hope into action," he said on Thursday. "We want everyone to have an image of Madeleine in whatever country in Europe they visit."

A video appeal will be shown on Saturday at the FA Cup final between Manchester United and Chelsea at Wembley Stadium.

Portuguese police say they have insufficient evidence to arrest anyone in the hunt for the girl.

One suspect has been identified by police -- a 33-year-old who lives in the area -- but his name has not been made public.

You've probably seen it on the telly ...bringmadeleinehome.com, or whatever it is, it pains me to advertise it but as needs must, I shall to prove a valid point.

How quickly was this website set up?!

The who is suggests the domain was registered on the 9th of May, however a website was set up sooner than this, possibly TWO DAYS after she went missing.

This was done on the orders or Gerry McCann, who asked a student friend of his to set it up.

Let's be realistic...if your child had gone 'missing', would you really be thinking about a bloody website?

Of course not, you'd be out knocking on every door, looking in every bush, DOING SOMETHING! Not setting up a website with an active paypal link for you to donate into GERRY MCCANNS PRIVATE COMPANY!

Remember, this isn't a trust fund.

This fund goes straight into a bank account owned by GERRY MCCANN, for him to do whatever he likes with.

A million quid, almost as cute as Madeleine herself.

So draw your own conclusions. I've laid down the evidence, you make your own mind up. But please, try to look past the completely biased media circus of the UK.

In my opinion, the McCanns are looking increasingly edgy in press conferences and interviews.

Gerry McCann is on the verge of breaking, next time he is on TV watch his body language, his refusal to look at the camera, his double blinking.

I just hope that the worlds biggest scam in decades will be blown apart soon.

Maybe, just maybe, I'll be saying 'I told you so'.

I would like to mention that setting up a website when a person goes missing isn't unusual. Particularly if the person is teenage or a young adult, it's a good way to spread the word of their disappearance.

Of course, setting up an online shop and a limited company is a whole different ball game.

Can't remember if it was also in the blogs - I've gone through the early ones but can't see it.

Also looking for a photograph where the correspondence they got in PdL was sorted in cardboard boxes and one of them was labelled 'loopy' or something like that.
Struck me at the time that considering they'd already contacted psychics very early on, that labelling correspondence as loopy seemed curious. It would have to be very, very weird to compete with their own theories.

Iv'e seen that photo tigger. It was taken at the McCanns Home oi the early days and Gerry has 3 big cardboard boxes in front of him and he is sorting the fan mail into each box. One is labelled "Maddies", a direct contradiction to Kate saying she was never called Maddie, only Madeleine. One of the boxes contained hate mail which is why Gerry called it loopy I presume. I think that photo was taken at their home not PDL., They returned home in September 2007.

That one for people in Iberian peninsula and N.Africa


Cherry wasn't they some talk off the McCanns phone line costs been very expensive to call (Imo they probably made money off the back of people trying to help by ringing up with info).

Aaaaah, I have forgotten all about that. They wanted to make money with phone calls, if people phone for leads.
