Day 176 - 26/10/2007 Friday
It has been a busy few days for Kate and I. We did our first interview since being made arguidos, for Spanish TV. This was very difficult for us but had one important purpose. We announced that private investigators are looking for Madeleine and that there is a dedicated ANONYMOUS telephone line for anyone who has information, which may help us to find Madeleine. The number is +34.902.300.213. We urge anyone who may have information to please call this number.
The investigators are based in
because we believe Madeleine is most likely to be in the Iberian Peninsula or North Africa. They have also released a sketch of an
eyewitness who saw a man carrying a small child away from near the apartment on
the night Madeleine disappeared. We believe this child was Madeleine. The
Portuguese police have released the description of the man previously: he is
35-40 years old, approximately 5’8”-5’10” (1.72-1.78m), Caucasian with southern
European/Mediterranean appearance, slim build with dark hair. We hope that this
picture may jog someone’s memory who may have seen this man in the Praia da Luz
area on the night or days before Madeleine was abducted. Someone else may be
aware of a man matching this description who has behaved suspiciously at any
time since the beginning of May.
