Maddie McCann: Abduction theories blasted as 'ridiculous' by US crime expert

Scotland Yard has wasted almost $20 million investigating "ridiculous" theories that Madeleine McCann was abducted, according to a US criminal profiler.

Pat Brown, a profiler of cold cases in America and a regular guest on major US TV networks, said she was baffled by British police who failed to carry out a "proper investigation".

Operation Grange was launched by London Metropolitan Police in 2011, after Madeleine McCann vanished without trace from her family's Portuguese holiday apartment in May 2007.

The case, which continues to fascinate the world, remains unsolved.

"What Scotland Yard was doing was not a proper investigation," Brown told Nine.com.au.

"Scotland Yard went in saying the McCanns are not suspects, and that [the disappearance of Maddie] is an abduction. There is absolutely no way you should have entered an investigation saying that."

Scotland Yard is one of the world's most respected crime fighting agencies, making its approach doubly confusing, Brown said.

"Their focus has always been there was an abduction and we're going after a kidnapper."

Everyone, including parents Gerry and Kate, should have been suspects when Operation Grange was opened following a 2011 request by now British Prime Minister Theresa May, Brown said.

"They spent a tremendous amount of time following the most ridiculous leads ever. It was like watching a massive charade.

"To this day it's made no sense. They've spent an incredible sum of money going absolutely nowhere, coming up with absolutely nothing – not even a piece of evidence to add to the evidence we already know about."

This week Operation Grange was granted another $137,200 to cover operational costs through to September 17, a period that will include the 10th anniversary of Maddie's disappearance on May 3, 2007.

An unnamed source inside Operation Grange, which to date has been funded to the tune of $17.9m by the British government, claimed it was "a last throw of the dice".

Brown told Nine.com.au she believed Scotland Yard was handed a political football, where the results of the investigation did not matter.

The American profiler has spent countless hours poring over the entirety of official case files that were released by Portugal's Policia Judiciaria. She has also visited the town of Praia Da Luz.

Policia Judiciaria investigated the disappearance of Maddie, who would now be aged 13, between 4 May 2007 and 21 July 2008.

In September 2007 Gerry and Kate were sensationally named as 'arguidos' (a person being questioned under caution) by Portuguese police.

Goncalo Amaral, the detective who headed up the original investigation, claimed Gerry and Kate McCann covered up their daughter’s death in his book and a documentary.

The McCanns, who have always staunchly declared their innocence, last month lost their court battle to silence the former detective.

Brown met with Amaral while she was in Praia Da Luz, exploring key locations and surrounding areas relating to the case.

"There is evidence to lead one to believe the top theory should be Madeleine is dead," declared Brown.

She said, having looked at all the evidence, there was "zero sign of abduction".

Operation Grange has investigated theories involving child sex traffickers and Maddie's abduction by burglars or pedophiles.

The child trafficking theory was initially raised by private investigators hired by the McCanns in 2007.

Thank you for that Carly. 8((()*/
The McCanns were solely responsible for their childcare arrangements and there is no one else to blame.

Pat thinks abduction theories are ridiculous but doesn't say why.  Meanwhile one of her theories involves Gerry smuggling Madeleine's body back to the UK in a holdall on one of his flights back to the UK which isn't remotely ridiculous of course.

Mmm.
I agree it is more about the relationship between two nations rather than a missing child, 99.9% certain to be dead at this stage. But clinging to that 0.1% (1 in 1 thousand) chance she may still be alive you guys have to look for her.

I have never thought there was an abduction from the room but an abduction from the grounds.  So I might even agree with Pat Brown (whom I have emailed my support for in the past).

‘The only Madeleine McCann theory that stacks up’
March 15, 20175:29pm

British girl Madeleine McCann was three years old when she went missing from a resort in Portugal in 2007.

A CRIME expert who has analysed the high profile case of missing child Madeleine McCann claims the three-year-old was not abducted.

Investigative Criminal Profiler and Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann author Pat Brown told news.com.au that Scotland Yard bungled the investigation and slammed the crime fighting agency for “wasting time and money” on Madeleine’s case.

“Madeleine is dead,” Ms Brown said.

“There’s no point spending all of this money as nothing they do is going to make that child alive.”

While profiling the case, Ms Brown developed a theory about what happened to Madeleine.

“When I do a crime scene analysis it is a theory based on evidence to then be given to police and used to look for more proof and evidence suitable for prosecution,” she said.

“When I analysed (Madeleine’s) case, it led me to believe evidence does not support an abduction.

“An abduction was extremely unlikely based on the amount of time, evidence at the scene, and every other shred of evidence there has ever been.”

Ms Brown said Madeleine most likely died an accidental death that was “covered up”.

“The evidence supports the theory of an accident occurring through neglect and possible medication,” she said.

“It’s my belief the body was moved to a desolate location and will never be found.”

Ms Brown’s comments come after British police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann nearly 10 years ago were last week granted STG85,000 ($A136,935) to extend the search for a further six months.

The British Home Office has granted officers the funds to continue the probe until September.

There is one person who was near the area where Madeleine went missing who police want to speak to, the Sunday Express reported.

To date a total of STG11.1 million ($A17.9 million) has been spent looking for Madeleine.

“There are other children missing in the UK who aren't getting this attention that the money should have been spent on,” Ms Brown said.

Madeleine disappeared from the family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal as her parents Kate and Gerry McCann dined with friends at a nearby restaurant in May 2007. If alive, Madeleine would now be 13 years old.

Ms Brown said Scotland Yard investigators made a mistake by ruling out suspects early on.

“You only eliminate someone as a suspect if they have an alibi and could absolutely not have committed the crime,” she said.

“It shouldn’t be based on theories.”

Ms Brown said the biggest mistake investigators made was examining and reviewing the case working to the theory that Madeleine had been abducted.

“They came in with a purpose and stated there was an abductor,” she said.

“Their focus was on finding a kidnapper.”

Ms Brown said there was “no evidence of an abduction” but that didn’t mean it hadn’t occurred.

“On the other hand it doesn’t mean it did,” she said.

“But because there’s no evidence of an abduction one has to look at other possibilities as well.”

Ms Brown said it was “extremely unlikely” anyone from a child sex ring would have abducted Madeleine. She said children could be illegally bought in some poor areas or “easily taken from drug addicts and prostitutes”.

“Even blonde ones,” she said.

‘They’re not going to steal a British tourist from a holiday resort because they know that will prompt a major investigation into them.”

Kate and Gerry McCann, have always denied any involvement in her death and vowed to “never give up” hope of finding their daughter.

“As a parent of an abducted child, I can tell you that it is the most painful and agonising experience you could ever imagine,” Ms McCann wrote on the couple’s ‘find Madeleine’ website.

“My thoughts of the fear, confusion and loss of love and security that my precious daughter has had to endure are unbearable — crippling.

“And yet I am not the victim, Madeleine is.

“No child should ever have to experience something so terrible.”

Last month, Kate and Gerry McCann lost their appeal in Portugal’s Supreme Court over a controversial book by former detective Goncalo Amaral called The Truth of the Lie.

In it, he claimed Maddie had “died” and her abduction was a “cover-up”.

Amaral led the initial investigation into Madeleine’s apparent abduction.

The McCanns have lodged a formal complaint against the ruling and are reportedly considering taking their case to the European Court of Human Rights.

The parents are bracing themselves for the heart wrenching 10th anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance in just a few weeks.
