It was articulated in reply to your question.

If you are looking for a missing child, you carry out missing child procedures.

If you are thinking of an abducted child, you carry out abduction procedures.

Very simple.
So if the child had disappeared in the middle of the night from a locked apartment in which the parents were present, then abduction would have been the only possible theory?  I'm not sure it is that simple.

No need for  jemmy if you can open a window or have a key.  I do know what a jemmy is btw, but thanks for asking.
Without proof, a key is a figment of people's fertile imaginations imo. And the open window (if it was unlocked) it's not what i call valuable evidence, would you? It's got even less strength than the dog alerts imo

Jon Clarke says he arrived just as the McCanns were leaving for Potimao. He says he went uo onto the balcony of 5A but didn't go in because 'obviously it would have been a crime scene'. Did he reread what he jad said previously? Obviously not.

 When I arrived at about 11.45am I was firstly able to walk into the apartment, where I introduced myself to the McCanns and told them I would do everything I could to help.

He also says that there was an announcement to the press that the McCanns were going to make their first appeal late on 4th. I wonder who announced that? Kate McCann gives the impression that it was a spur of the moment decision by Gerry.

For all you know that could have been reiterated but edited out ... he had no editorial say in what ended up on screen.

It didnít take much time or resources if you believe they didnít move the body.

What does that mean?  If I believe they didn't move what body?

I like a good debate as much as the next man but some members are truly not worth the bother.

I think everyone is worth the bother.  Even if I don't agree with them.

It was articulated in reply to your question, so please get up to speed.

Very simple.

There is no need for insulting asides..

He told a couple of whoppers in he Netflix documentary.  He just canít help it IMO.

Maybe not so much that he couldn't help it ... more that he wasn't used to being contradicted by other witness statements and it will be a surprise to him?

He is more used to holding the floor in broadcasts ... I think it would actually have suited him better to have played the 'dignity' card and ignored trying to ace Kate and Gerry.
He might have gone down well in the past as far as Portugal is concerned ... different matter in international terms such as Netflix which has to determine what is libel and what is not.  Wonder if Amaral will add Netflix to his conspiracy theories ... I think his before camera performance was transparently dire.

Without proof, a key is a figment of people's fertile imaginations imo. And the open window (if it was unlocked) comes from the mouth of a self confessed liar. It's not what i call valuable evidence, would you? It's got even less strength than the dog alerts imo unless you can tell me how you know for certain when a self confessed liar is telling the truth? If Peter Hyatt can't do it, why should I believe you can?

I require a Cite for Self Confessed Liar.  Otherwise I shall delete this and any other references to it.

It's out of Kate's book - it's the me and gerry had never lied about anything blah blah blah but we didn't seem to have a choice. Do I have to dig it out the direct quote?

I think you are handling this Forum with new rules quite well most of the time.

What Kate said was not a Lie.  A Fib at worst.  Sorry, but I am not having that it was.

You're boss but a lie is a lie and Gerry's blog had it's fair share also.
If people can't accept the truth, what's the point?

You do everything you can as a parent to ensure the safety of your child, nobody can protect their child 100% from all risks, obviously. You reduce those risks as much as you can.

I do think we would be having a much different conversation had Madeline been abducted from the locked apartment while the family slept and I am sure the initial investigation would have been carried out in a far different manner.
I doubt very much if the initial investigation would have been conducted any differently from Madeleine's and Joana's disappearances.
Netflix linked them.
Netflix  went to the trouble of replicating the reconstitution showing the alleged dismemberment of Joana and the impossibility of the eight year old's body fitting in the fridge.

Fridge ~ pigs ~ publicity ~ unfound children and mothers ... ring any bells?
