Madeleine McCann disappeared from the Praia da Luz resort, in Lagos, on 3rd May 2007. She has not been seen since

Since the BBC screened the Crimewatch programme showing a reconstruction of the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in May 2007 from Praia da Luz, in the Algarve, the English police have already received 250 calls and emails with several leads – some meriting more attention than others.

Now Scotland Yard is following the trail of two men – who, by their characteristics, would originate from Eastern Europe – who were seen to make false requests for donations for needy children and who were no longer seen immediately after the day of the three-year-old's disappearance.

The men were seen knocking on the apartment doors of the tourist resort. They held cards with the photo of a child in a wheelchair. They identified themselves with Portuguese names, but did not speak the language well. During the morning following the disappearance they were seen drinking coffee and shots. Since that moment, they disappeared. The police have already analysed the cards that the men presented to request money and observed that they are printed with Portuguese sentences on one side and English sentences on the other – in both languages various spelling mistakes occur.

These two men are part of an extensive list of suspects whom the English police are investigating in their attempt to establish who abducted the British girl.

Why should that be a surprise - the place was crawling with police - the last place dodgy charity collectors would want to be.

Morning jassi, is there no end to the 'suspects' pulled out of a Hat???  

I think if the Portugese Police have found anything of interest from the OPORTO team, they should publish it now, or close the case to stop all this nonsense. At the end of the day a pretty young child went missing , 7 years down the line she is still missing, presumed dead. These absurd 'suspects'
only prolong the case .

Blimey    Were they any decent people in the Praia da Luz resort, in Lagos, on 3rd May 2007. They all seem to be suspect.

The Portugese must be seething with anger when they read all this crap Krisy 22 , all designed of course to put the blame for Madeleine's demise on anyone except you-know-who. OPORTO have finished their report and handed it in so either the Portugese think there is enough new evidence to investigate (which I doubt) or close the case. That will stop SY feeding the Press rubbish and save money , try to repair the damage done to the reputation of PDL and the residents there can get back to normality.
