Madeleine McCann resort dig gets the go-ahead

THIS is the wasteland where police are expected to start a renewed search for clues about Madeleine McCann’s disappearance.

A judge has given the go-ahead for officers to scour the area with high-tech radar equipment.

It is just 100 yards from the apartment from which the then three-year-old vanished in May 2007 while her doctor parents Kate, 46, and Gerry, 45, were dining nearby.

The couple are today expected to light candles and say prayers at a small party to mark Madeleine’s 11th birthday.

Sources said the “field operation” will begin in the Portuguese holiday resort of Praia da Luz within days.

The first area to be examined is one the size of three football pitches across the road from the Ocean Club resort where the McCanns were staying when Madeleine disappeared.

Holiday flats funded by Irish investors were going to be built on the land until the economic crisis forced the project’s cancellation.

Land near the resort’s Our Lady of the Light Church – where the McCanns prayed for Madeleine’s safe return – is also expected to be examined.

“We love you and we’re waiting for you and we’re never going to give up”

Kate McCann

Yesterday Brit Nancy Thompson, who runs The Bull pub in Praia da Luz, said she fears the town will become a “circus”.

She said: “Why didn’t they do this at the time?

"Why are they going to do it when tourists are here?

“It will be like a circus town.

"I just can’t believe they are going to do that.”

Mayor Victor Mata said if locals had spotted anything suspicious since Madeleine vanished they would have reported it.

“We’re here every day,” he said.

“If we had the slightest doubt we would have told police.”

Some residents have complained at the effort being put into the search compared to that for local worker Ricardo Fernandes, who disappeared in April.

Madeleine’s parents continue to believe she will be found alive.

In a BBC interview Kate sent a message, pledging: “We love you and we’re waiting for you and we’re never going to give up.”

Yesterday Brit Nancy Thompson, who runs The Bull pub in Praia da Luz, said she fears the town will become a “circus”.

She said: “Why didn’t they do this at the time?
Maybe they have some hard evidence now which they didn't have 'at the time'.

"Why are they going to do it when tourists are here?
What are they supposed to do? Wait while the season is over? Sit on crucial evidence for months while the culprits cook up new alibis, cover-ups and more fake suspects?

“It will be like a circus town.
Who made it a circus town in the first place? Not the PJ. Not the Met.

"I just can’t believe they are going to do that.”
Well they are. Live with it. An exercise like this would have happened sooner or later anyway.
If there's even a small chance of success, strike while the iron is hot. This boil needs to be lanced or it will fester on forever.

Will this dig disappear along with the imminent arrests. Why don't they all just get on with it. Whether it be the arrests or digging or whatever. It seems like a game of chess is being played here. Or is it just my imagination.

Madeleine birthday brings more news As Kate and Gerry McCann woke up to the 11th birthday of their missing daughter Madeleine, news reports brought new twists in the high-profile seven-year investigation. The first is that Scotland Yard detectives have quizzed a 68-year-old convicted paedophile in his prison cell, reportedly about a cleaning business he ran in the Algarve at the time Madeleine went missing. Anthony Woodhouse is reported to have spent more than 10 years on the run in Portugal after raping a 14-year-old who subsequently became pregnant. After being grilled for over two hours by Met police, Woodhouse is understood to have been taunted by prison inmates chanting “Give her back”. As this latest twist in the long-running saga hit the British tabloids, Portugal’s equivalent, the Correio da Manhã, revealed that the PJ police have sanctioned the Met’s request for searches of various sites in Praia da Luz, but has not yet decided “whether the means to be used will be exclusively English”. Scotland Yard wants to use geo-radar and sniffer dogs, as well as British forensic teams, writes Sol website. But the decision is in the hands of the PJ, which also has radar, bought four years ago, able to capture images in the subsoil. The radar has already been used in a number of cases, including during searches for the bodies of the victims of ‘King Ghob’, adds Sol (Francisco Leitão, a.k.a. Rei Ghob is currently serving 25 years for the murders of four young Portuguese). “If the geo-radar detects something suspicious, digging will follow,” Sol affirms. “The objective is to find Madeleine’s body or other clues, like items of clothing or weapons.” Nonetheless, the news site contends that the PJ has already done a thorough search of all these sites and come up empty-handed. Meanwhile, TV commentator and critic Eduardo Cintra Torres has criticised the Madeleine razzmatazz that seems to have been stirred up by Scotland Yard in the past week. Talking on CMTV, Torres claims that Madeleine cop DCI Andy Redwood needs a psychological evaluation. “I look at him, and I just think ‘this man wants to appear on TV’,” Torres told CMTV news anchor João Ferreira. “With so many children disappearing in England, did he choose the Madeleine case because he would appear on television? “Why are the Portuguese police being subservient to this mockery?” He added. “We need to ask, what exactly is going on? This is all just ridiculous. Just a way of showing off.” Torres’ contentions have been echoed elsewhere with critics suggesting the British police are trying to justify the millions spent so far by Operation Grange in the search for Madeleine’s alleged abductor. Others have suggested it is an election ploy of the British government in the run-up to the European elections. Whatever the motivation, Torres claims it is “shameful for the Portuguese state to allow the mediatisation of an investigation that belongs to the Portuguese and not to the English. “If we tried to do the same in England, would they allow it?” He asked. “Of course not!” By NATASHA DONN news@algarveresident.com

ell all i can say is that i hope a pastys dna isnt found anywhere near pdl because imo for that to happen they really need to be able to tell the uk public how it was possible for him to be able to do it because there isnt any chance that anyone would go on the rob , take nothing kill a child and take her with him - her , joe public are NOT going to go for that

Morning Karen, I'm surprised the Algarve Resident is showing this article at such a critical time , when the residents of PDL are appealing for the Press to go away.
