Missing Maddie – Latest News July 7, 2008

Posted by cotojo on July 7, 2008

Today the parents of missing girl Madeleine McCann were due to take their fight to the High Court in London in a bid to get British police to release documents about the investigation into their daughters disappearance.

It was also thought that the hearing may have been adjourned after it emerged last week that the Portuguese police had handed their file to prosecutors with a recommendation that the case against the McCann’s be dropped due to lack of evidence.

However, the McCann’s have dropped the case after Leicestershire police agreed this morning to hand over the documents that they have. Leicestershire police force has been involved in the search for Madeleine since shortly after her disappearance on May 3rd, 2007 from the holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal.

Kate and Gerry McCann were not at the High Court and the judge, Mrs Justice Hogg said that she had not requested them to attend as they have already suffered enough and wished to ease their burden.

The judge also urged anyone with information about missing Maddie to come forward, saying that “there is one person who knows what has happened to her.”

The judge added: “I entreat that person, whoever they may be, to show mercy and compassion and come forward now and tell us where Madeleine is to be found. I hope she will be found soon, alive and well.”

    Gina – many of us feel the same way, if only there was something positive to work with. Hopefully something new will come to light in the not too distant future.
    Take care my friend and have a good day,
    Colin

    Rhonda – It’s a very sad case and one that has gained much attention, especially with false and misleading information leaked to the media which only served to hinder it.
    It takes a bit of sifting through to try and get only the known facts and not the supposition.
    Take care sweetie,
    Hugs
    Colin
