Day 41 - 13/06/2007 Wednesday
Met with Portuguese and British police today to get an update on the investigation. We were reaasured that information continues to come in, and we continue to pray for a breakthrough.
We were extremely disappointed in the publication of the anonymous letter in The Telegraaf (
) claiming to know where
Madeleine is buried. Although all information will be taken seriously, we were
very upset that the credibility of this letter had not been examined and, more
importantly, published before the Portuguese police had an opportunity to
investigate the claim, and search the area if appropriate without massive media
attention. We feel strongly that this was an irresponsible piece of journalism
and even if it were true is insensitive and cruel. Netherlands
One can imagine how upsetting it is for Kate and I to hear of such claims
through the media and if every piece of information was published like this there would be nothing else in the newspapers.
