Those sort of comments annoy me. The family, who can't be bothered to get take out and eat in the room and are the 1st stop in responsibility for the little tykes dissappearence seem fit to point to finger at the police.
In the previous Monday, 30 of April, a British looking couple was surprised photographing children in the Praça da Repblica, in Sagres. A Portuguese man on holiday in this village, father of a girl very similar to Madeleine, ran to the photographer to ask what he was doing but the man ran away: it entered in the car with a woman that was with him and pulled out. The father of the photographed girl failed to see the cars' licence plate, but he drew his camera equipped cell-phone and photographed the couple in escape.
When he knew of the abduction of Madeleine, at only some kilometres, he telephoned to the Judicial Police. He was heard with much attention in the PJ of Portimão and told them everything. The investigators have the photos of the couple caught by cell-phone camera. The images are very low quality.
This man, emigrant in Germany and on holiday in Sagres, came back to speak with the PJ. The investigators had looked for him to show him the photograph of the two men and a woman in a Lagos' petrol station. The man did not have any difficulty in identifying one of the men and woman as the couple that he surprised photographing the children in Sagres.
That we don't know.
