Post  interested on Mon 26 Mar - 23:24

From the Daily Mail: "EXCLUSIVE: The hunt for Madeleine McCann CONTINUES as Home Office approves Met police's request for cash to pursue a 'final line of inquiry' 11 years after youngster vanished"

It appears an additional 150,000 pounds available for the "hunt" for which Kate and Gerry McCann are "incredibly grateful".

MADNESS!!!!!!

Disgusting, the world and his dog know that it's a waste of time and money to keep propping up this pair of charlatans' story. Charge them with reckless child endagerment/abandonment, throw them in jail and throw away the key.

Faced with the evidence the British dogs provided, I can't understand why anyone would think that Madeleine left that room alive. (Please don't anyone tell me that evidence would not be allowed in court; it's evidence enough for me. It certainly should have been enough evidence as well for the McCanns to be prostate with grief as it would any innocent parents.)

Thank you for the link "fred" - It appears the "new thesis" has fallen on deaf ears. Like so many others, I'm tired of hearing about that "final" line of enquiry and supposedly "final" funding.

Dad of missing Newcastle man writes to Government over 'unfair' Madeleine McCann search cash

Paul Whinham, whose son Michael has been missing since November 2015, is angry at the apparent unfairness of missing person funding


A Tyneside dad whose son has been missing for more than two years has hit out at news of more funding for the Madeleine McCann search.

Paul Whinham wrote to Theresa May to express his frustrations about the ‘unfairness’ that so much focus and funding was going to the Madeleine McCann search.


His son Michael went missing from his home in Oakfield Gardens, Benwell in November 2015 aged 31.

A week before his son’s 34th birthday, Paul, who lives in Wallsend, said: “I can’t knock the police but after a six-month investigation they said they would be stopping the search.

“However, the McCanns have had £11.5m and now they get another £100,000 plus to continue looking for her.”

Paul said he wrote to the Government a few months ago.

He said: “I wrote asking why all missing people weren’t being treated equally. There’s people like me all over the country being told there’s no more the police can do and yet this one case gets all the money and attention.

“The policing minister Nick Hurd wrote back to say that every enquiry gets the same treatment, but then goes on to say that when Theresa May was home secretary she set up a special unit to look for Madeleine McCann. If that’s not preferential treatment, I don’t know what is.”

Although police found no trace of Michael after his disappearance, his dad says he still holds out hope that he will turn up.

Paul still pays the rent on Michael’s Benwell house: “If he comes home, I don’t want him to be homeless,” the 67 year old explained.

Despite their extensive investigation failing to find his son, Paul praised Northumbria Police for the way they handled the search, saying “they did the best they could, I’ve no doubt about that.”

The latest figures showed that — in 2016, across the Northumbria Police jurisdiction — there were 1,397 missing children and 2,209 missing adults and a spokesman for the force said that Michael’s case is regularly reviewed.

The spokesperson said: “We can understand Mr Whinham’s frustration and know how distressing the disappearance of a loved can be. It has always been our hope to find Michael.

“Our enquiry to find him very much remains open and if we have any new lines of enquiry these will be fully investigated.

“A team of officers were dedicated to investigating Michael’s disappearance who carried out extensive lines of enquiry including viewing hours of CCTV, numerous appeals and speaking to people who knew him.

“Unfortunately, the investigation reached a point where all lines of enquiry were exhausted and at this point it was necessary for us disband the dedicated team.
“However, this does not mean we will not continue in our effort and like all missing person investigations, the case is continuously reviewed and if any new lines of enquiry do arise then we will investigate them fully and proportionately.

“We have not given up on finding Michael and if anyone has any evidence that could help us locate him then we would urge them to get in touch.”

More than £11 million has been spent so far on the probe to find missing Madeleine, who vanished from the family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal in May 2007, aged three.

Government funding for the investigation has been agreed every six months, with £154,000 being granted from October last year until the end of March.

It is believed that the latest round of funding will be as much as £150,000 and a Home Office spokesperson said: “The Government remains committed to the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann (Operation Grange).

“We have briefed the Metropolitan Police Service that its application for Special Grant funding for Operation Grange will be granted.”

Family spokesman Clarence Mitchell told the paper that Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry McCann were “incredibly grateful” to the Home Office for granting the money request.

He said: “They are very encouraged that the Met Police still believe there is work left to be done and they are incredibly grateful to the Home Office for providing an extra budget for the investigation.”

Public outrage as Madeleine McCann search given more taxpayers' money

MORE taxpayers’ cash is being put into the £12million police search for Madeleine McCann

The Home Office announcement led to fury on social media.

Officials yesterday refused to reveal the figure allocated but it is understood to be around £150,000.

Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry, inset, said they were “incredibly grateful”.

Their daughter disappeared from a holiday apartment in Portugal 11 years ago, aged three.

But the extra cash sparked a Twitter backlash.

Coronation Street actor Louis Emerick, 64, who plays Mike Thornberry in the soap, tweeted: “£11m+ spent so far, police granted more funds! Shudnt every missing child be granted the same?”

Celebrity Big Brother and Benefits Street star Dee Kelly said: “Seriously – what’s the difference between #MadelineMcCann and others like @findcorrie #CorrieMcKeague or the hundreds of thousands of others in the country/world #missing.”

Former X Factor champ Steve Brookstein wrote: “Madeleine McCann is never gonna be found. Total waste of public money.”

Another user said: “So they have magic money to further fund Madeleine McCann but they don’t have money for Grenfell victims? Disgusting.”

The further funding comes as the Met Police faces £400m in cutbacks over the next four years

'WE HAVEN'T HAD THAT HELP' Ben Needham’s mum questions why she hasn’t had more cash after Maddie McCann hunt funding boost


Speaking the Loose Women panel hearbroken Kerry Needham said she hadn't had a 'fraction' of the help

MUM of missing Ben Needham has hit out at the recent cash boost to extend the search for Madeleine McCann.

Venting her frustration on Loose Woman Kerry Needham said she had not received the same "magnitude" of support as Kate and Gerry McCann, who were promised extra funds earlier this week.

Speaking to the panel the 43-year-old said:"It hurts. It hurts us and it hurts me as Ben's mum.

"I'm not taking anything away from it at all she deserves to be found but so does Ben and we haven't had a fraction of that help I've had to fight alone as a single mum and tried to get the help that Ben deserves and that we deserve as a family.

"It did happen in the end but not to the magnitude that that case has had."

Ben disappeared during a family holiday to the Greek island of Kos in 1991.

Earlier this week the Home Office confirmed Scotland Yard would get the funds to chase a "vital line of inquiry".

Parents Kate and Gerry McCann said they were "incredibly grateful" for the cash boost, after their daughter vanished from a holiday apartment in Portugal in 2007.

The undisclosed sum will keep the seven-year inquiry going for the next six months until the end of September.

Despite disappearing 26 years ago cops are still no closer to knowing whether Ben is dead or alive.

In 2016 cops told mum Kerry to "prepare for the worst" as they investigated the theory the 21-month-old was crushed to death by a digger driven by Konstantinos Barkas as the tot played with his toy car.

Kerry made another heartbreaking plea for help last year as she reminded cops she would be spending her 27th Christmas without her son.
