Madeleine McCann Found: Home By Christmas

Yes, Metodo3 boss Francisco Marco says they know where Madeleine is and she will be home by Christmas. The Daily Mirror, Daily Express, the free Metro and other UK publications have all quoted Metodo's boss.

In his boldest claim yet, the director general of Metodo 3 said: "We know who kidnapped her. We believe she is in an area not very far from the Iberian peninsula and north Africa. And we have a fairly certain idea of who she is with."

Something may be lost in translation there. An area not very far from the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa? What? The Canary Islands? I guess he could mean that.

There appear to be a few contradictions to Mr Marco's certainty:

"Mr Marco said: "I have always said publicly Madeleine is alive. I have to believe it 100 per cent because I know how to look for living people, not dead ones. But I have no proof Madeleine is alive.

So, he is sure they know where Madeleine is, who took her and that she will be home by Christmas, but he has no proof that she is alive?

"I talk of certainties because we know which group may have her or could have kidnapped her to then sell her on to others."

Certainties, but then he says they know which group might have her of could have kidnapped her? That doesn't sound very certain to me!

Mr Marco says he believes that Madeleine was taken by a paedophile ring. If that is true, then I have doubts about Madeleine's being home by Christmas, even if she were to be found alive tomorrow. Does he think that the paedos will have been taking good care of her? If she had been in the hands of a paedophile ring for seven months, that poor child would need some very serious emotional rehabilitation as well as physical treatment and care.

Mr Marco, there would be no happy reunion under the Christmas tree. Madeleine McCann snatched from a paedophile ring would be an emotionally and physically scarred child.

But, I am very sad to say that I don't think Madeleine will be returning alive to her lovely house by Christmas. I don't think she will be returning alive. When Gerry McCann said, "Find the body and prove we killed her," I began to feel that we would possibly never find out what happened to Madeleine McCann, but I continue to hope that she will be found and laid to rest, finally with her own stone marking the place where she is at peace.

If Metodo 3 do know where she is and who is hilding her they wouldn't be stupid enough to tell the world.

And as you say,if by some miracle she is found she won't be in any fit state to slip back into the family life as though nothing has happened.

There are far too many unanswered questions and there is far too much rubbish in the press,will anyone ever know the truth?

I think even the McCanns are getting worried about the antics of Metodo3. They are quoted as saying that M3 may have put Madeleine at risk by publicising what they are doing. I guess that statement from the McCanns helps them to reinforce their message that they believe Madeleine has been abducted!

I do feel more and more certain, the longer this trails on, that we will never know what has happened to Madeleine. So many people around the world are concerned for that little girl. A biblical reference keeps coming to mind, "Am I my brother's keeper?" Yes, I am, when my brother human being has lost a child, at the very least due to very negligent behaviour.

Hi Anna,

If Metodo3 would know where Maddy would be, surely they won't blurted it out in all newspapers???
That would be a bit silly!!

Get a bit worried about Metodo's

In today's Mail On Sunday, the McCanns are quoted as saying that the Metodo3 contract is under review and that the agency must, "put an end to wild claims."

If Madeleine had been abducted, those inept investigators would surely have put her life at risk with their claims of knowing where she was, and that they were closing in.
