Missing baby boy.
An 18 month old baby boy went missing in Estreito da Calheta Sunday afternoon.
The boy has blonde fair and green eyes and wearing blue trousers, orange grey jacket, black trainers and a red dummy.




Update

Unrest in Calheta as police stop search at 22.10 and will continue in the morning at 8am.

Update Monday

Its looking more likely the child has been taken, a neighbour heard a car outside at the time just before the child was reported missing

The card with his photograph says 'Merry Christmas'

There is no much about this case in the media but the uncle of the boy is Portuguese while I have seen some non Portuguese name quoted somewhere as possibly the mother

His name is Daniel Gonçalves

They stopped searching for the baby boy (totally Portuguese) this morning and are interviewing all the family (the disappearance happened at the godfather's).
It seems they've learnt the cost of respecting the despair of the parents.

That's what I thought that I had understood... that the ground search had already ended and the family was being taken in for questioning by the PJ and that no one seems to have a clue as to what happened to the child apart from someone noticing a car nearby.

How far did this search extend before giving up?

His mother's name seems to be Lídia Gonçalves.

It sound like a family had a weekend meal together and the toddler disappeared out of view for a short time. An accident nearby? Could someone have taken him?

Don't you know ? 
If you use "menino desaparecido Madeira", you'll find pictures and videos showing police searching.

Have I misunderstood or have the ground searches already ended?

O coordenador da PJ da Madeira, Eduardo Nunes, encarregue de investigar o desaparecimento de um menino de 18 meses, anunciou que as operações de busca «foram dadas por terminadas».

Ok. Has there been a move to actually enforce judicial secrecy? Or doesn't CdaM have a correspondent there?
