    Not that I'm aware of, but I'm not an avid follower of the story. Quick google didn't find me anything to support that though.

    Looks like it was bollocks.

    Well, well.

    That site I linked to has everything, it seems.

    Would you mind not looking for Maddie? It's totally disruptive.

    A woman from Essex, one of many British people with a holiday home here, says: "We're all fed up with this. It's a nuisance at this time of year.

    "All this attention had an effect before and now it will again. It's totally disruptive."
    "My sympathies are with the McCann family - I met them in 2007.

    "But I don't know what the police hope to achieve. It disturbs the village."
    (I'll take a guess that the Police hope to find Maddie.)

    One woman known as Nana, who has lived in the area for 15 years, feels so strongly that she walks up to the site on Rua 25 da Abril with a handmade placard bearing the words: "Dig up lies, not Luz".

    "I'm very angry, frustrated, furious," she says.

    "It has such a detrimental effect on Luz locally, for tourism.

    "People live off tourism. Luz is suffering and that's why I'm angry."
    No wonder they never found her first time around. No sooner had it happened then they wanted it all to go away, and still do.

    I dunno, but 7 years later...

    Yeah, I see that, but I also see how the disappearance didn't appear to be taken seriously by authorities there and it was only press hounding that kept things going. Subsequent reporting of police corruption suggested 'being seen to be doing something' was the main objective, and when that didn't work they went after the parents. I remember local people and press being delighted at that turn of events.

    My impression is of a shitty town of people with gimlet eyes for tourist euros. Unreasonable as it is, I pretty much think 'fuck them' - one of them shot the albatross and they can all live with it.

    I can see how a town can feel a bit invaded by the incredible press coverage for what ultimately is a tragic event, but one which has extraordinary press coverage and incompetent policing compared with other 'missing' children.

    Add to that the feeling that the McCanns are, at best, not telling the whole story (imo), you can see how they're a bit fed up with it all.

    They must be acting on some quite specific information. It is a lot resource to devote to search a relatively small area.

    I wish someone would abduct my neighbour's kids, but they've built in anti-theft by being immovably fat and irrepressibly unattractive.

    If it does turn out to the Germans we should blow up some of their dams again.

    Really let Jerry know we don't approve!

    Strange way to confess impregnating your neighbor... Twice... But OK.

    Has the area where you live got a facebook page/marketplace page? Put an ad on there asking for a pedo with low self esteem issues for a job asap.

    Have the parents heard that the years of taxpayers' money and police time have finally paid off, or are they out boozing?

    Apparently Cummings has been spotted learning the dark arts of necromancy in order to resurrect Diana for when we pass 100k deaths.

    I know what I'd do with a resurrected Diana.
