The fact that they left their 3 very young children alone in the apartment while they went out for food and drink is something the McCanns freely admit. That's one point of the story that there is no disagreement on

This new suspect was convicted of a vicious rape on an elderly woman in 2005 in the Algarve .. I dread to think how many innocent people have suffered at his hands over the years

Police have revealed that he was spotted in Praia da Luz on the night she vanished and has a series of child sex convictions ..


This all looks very grim


The police are apparently sharing lots of circumstantial evidence - far more than normal - with the hope sparking the public into maybe remembering or reporting something that may know .

About 50 metres in a direct line, but "out of sight" (a wall between them and the entrance is out and round a corner)

Any progress in finding out what happened to her at this point is a good thing, but I am a bit surprised that it's only now they have identified this person as being in the locality as he seems to have quite an extensive, relevant history

Not ideal then .. and something we certainly never did .

Do we know how they defended their decision to leave them all unattended?

Maddie has a habit of popping up when certain tabloids don't like the big news stories that day

They just repeatedly say that it's a normal thing to do on holiday, even though 99% of other parents are like "What???". They just say again that it's normal and anyone would do it.

We actually went to Portugal when my kids were 4 and 2... The furthest we went was lying out on the balcony of the villa at night looking at the stars when they were asleep in the next room. Granted, being in The Algarve with two small kids, we did have the Maddie cautionary tale on our minds, but I don't know any parent who would actually go out for dinner at any distance and leave their kids alone. As is frequently pointed out - so many things could happen. What if there was a fire? Etc.

Its no different to a parent in the UK leaving their kids at home and going to the pub at the end of the street. No one would try to justify that.

If they lived on a council estate on Liverpool, they’d have had the other two taken off them as well for wilful neglect now

I hope you're right although living in Maddies shadow these whole time cannot have been ideal.

The McCann's lawyer was talking on TV this morning about the appalling trolling the McCann's had suffered. Immediately I thought of this place and how people can seemingly say what they like.

I would LOVE to see the McCann's lawyers prosecuting the trolls. Could happen... fingers crossed.

There are far worse places than here that have gone after the McCanns for years. Some of the stuff Chuff posted from other groups was far worse than people stating they were negligent for leaving the kids alone and were they not as educated and able to afford the legal team they have, would probably have been investigated for some form of child abandonment.

The McCann's were well connected, which i think had more bearing on the case and the media than money
