Madelaine McCann Breakthrough
By Hope and Georgia
Kate and Gerry McCann were on the BBC show Crimewatch recently starting a new appeal try to find there missing daughter Madeline. Madeline went missing from a hotel in Portugal in 3rd May 2007. The McCanns asked for help from Prime Minister David Cameron when the Portuguese investigation was closed. A new investigation was open by the metropolitan police.
The Crimewatch appeal showed a new E-fit image of men the police want to talk to in connection to the Madeline McCann disappearance. The programme said they had received 500 tip-offs following the program’s airing.
The police in Portugal think they have identified the 40 year old former Ocean Club employee from traces on his mobile phone. They suspect he kidnaped Madeline after he got sacked by his boss. The individual has since died so police can’t question him. The man was living in a flat in Lagos about 15 minutes from the hotel Madeline was kidnaped from. Police are questioning his widow and searching his flat for evidence. This is the strongest lead they have at this point in time. The police have only just found this information because he wasn’t on the list of employees the hotel gave to the police (he was not working there anymore).

The four live shows will take place at the Hydro from 30 September to Friday 3 October next year .Tickets will go on sale on Friday. Forty four episodes of Still Game were broadcast over six series from 2002.
