You are correct The last map showed a road that was in front of the road on which stood the house. http://goo.gl/maps/6PkpC
I, however on the map on my last post, showed a road with railings which when they came to an end were much lower than the house on that street, so It is possible a child could walk down there to her house at the back.
The fastest route direct to her door being http://goo.gl/maps/nEDXA
Still a rather unsafe route for a child.
I believe the stairs were located near the Mercado ( single supermarket/greengrocers/ shop) The map is 6 years old and it is the only access to the road behind that is close to the Mercado.
I think the stairs may have gone up then down ,at a time when the side ground area was raised.
The area I suspect to have been stairs also has a warning sign on it, as it is being dismantled, to make way for a road.
From 2006 Appeal
The witness AA3 neighbour, reported that on 12 September, by 8h 30m / 8h 40m, was the window of his house, smoking, when he saw Joana, with a bag in hand, go up the stairs in the proximity of the market, towards her house. The witness said that in that place there was no movement, nor saw cars, nor heard any cry, although he stayed at the window for some time longer. He said, that there was the "Feast of Cockles", which occurred far from that location and for that reason there was nobody there.
The witness AA4 ? said he had seen the Joana on the night, but could not specify the hours.
A testemunha AA3, relatou que no dia 12 de Setembro, pelas 8h 30m / 8h 40m, estava a janela de sua casa, a fumar, quando viu a CC, com um saco na mão, a subir as escadas na proximidade do mercado, em direcção a casa. A testemunha disse que naquele local não havia movimento, não viu carros, nem ouviu qualquer grito, embora se tenha mantido à janela durante mais algum tempo. Referiu que decorria a "Festa do Berbigão", mas ocorria longe daquele local e por ali não havia ninguém.
A testemunha AA4 disse ter visto a CC nessa noite, mas não conseguiu precisar as horas.http://www.dgsi.pt/jstj.nsf/954f0ce6ad9dd8b980256b5f003fa814/bfaf1cea93ab75fb8025716200388d89?OpenDocument&Highlight=0,cipriano
I have read and downloaded all the CM news from the Joana case and don't know anything about a camper van, which I am sure you must have read somewhere else. I would love a link to this new (to me) information.
I hope you managed to get all your cards done, I was late, because I had to wait for my granddaughter to do them. Done now, so I can stop worrying
