A Foreign Office spokesman said that he understood the girl's parents had gone to have dinner once their children were asleep last night, but returned to check on them only to find the girl had gone missing.
"They reported it straight away," he said, adding that consular assistance was being offered.
10:XX - 11:00PM: Information and a request for assistance in the matter of the disappearance of Madeleine McCann moved from Portugal to a ministerial level in the UK where discussions took place and a decision was made to issue an alert to the press, with Foreign Office attribution, for a child who had been reported missing less than an hour before.

If on an analysis of DNA, 15 markers out of 19 belong to a person "x", can we conclude that this is this person?
SA: If the profile is complete and quality, and that the markers are analyzed information then no doubt! The result is discriminatory. This result is very reliable. The order of error is 1 for 1 billion! It is almost impossible it otherwise. For a conclusive DNA profile, it takes a minimum of 7 markers. In case you are presenting, 15 markers on 19 leave no doubt. This result is quite reliable and usable in court. The error rate for a one billion is so unlikely that the result is recognized by judges without lawyers can not bring them into doubt

A 13-month baby drowned when he was left in the bathtub unattended by his mother who was too busy playing Facebook games. On Friday, April 15th, the mother, 34-year-old Shannon Johnson from Fort Lupton, Colorado, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for child neglect in the death of her son. The charges left open the possibility of a lighter sentence, including no prison time, but authorities said that they were not going to allow for a minimum sentence as they did not want to minimize the seriousness of the situation.
Brian Healy, the father of Kate McCann, admitted she “may have used Calpol” to help Madeleine to sleep, but said it was “just outrageous to think of anything else." Gerry and Kate strongly denied, on August 16, using any kind of drugs on their children to stop them waking up at night. Calpol is a common painkiller that is used, in UK, to to calm them down or help children to sleep. Twelve million bottles and packets of Calpol are sold every year, in UK.

.......In the days after Madeleine vanished on May 3, the McCanns, both 39 and devout Catholics, frequently sought refuge at the priest's church.
They became so close to Father Pacheco, he gave them the keys to the tiny building so they could go in to pray whenever they liked.
However, his friendship with the couple appeared to spectacularly backfire after police became convinced Kate had told him she had killed her daughter during confession.
But he has vowed to take whatever she had said to the grave, despite being quizzed by detectives.

Actually I feel nauseous that the McCann publicity machine is rolling out once again.Thry want a 'review' of the investigation. Oh wait - there's a book coming out!
Max Clifford was on TV talking as if nothing was done first time around. I must have imagined it all then. While some people like to criticise the Portuguese police, it seems to me they threw a load of resources at it that they probably couldn't afford. Not to forget the massive involvement of the UK government and police.
The worst thing is, imo, that they just seem to click their fingers and for some reason our government bends over and says pretty please. It's certainly not comparable to the resources given to other similar cases. What's going on?

my only worry is that the Mccann's have friends in high places that will protect them.
