He said he doesn't believe the "ridiculous" conspiracy theories circulating about Madeleine's disappearance. He said: "One of the most ridiculous conspiracy theories I have heard was that Madeleine was born as the result of a government cloning project.

"People also assumed the worst. That [the McCanns] were getting drunk, that they were having fun and that they did not care about their children."

Instead, he offers a rare insight into the case, that isn't heard much in Madeleine's story. At the time, Portuguese laws said information regarding the investigation was to remain private. Because of this, the McCann perspective was never really heard. Clarence Mitchell may not work as much with the McCanns now, but he still has an idea about what might have happened to Maddie.

He told The Telegraph: "I asked the British authorities what they think happened and if there was any family involvement, and they assured me it was just a rare case of stranger abduction.

"It’s very rare, but it can happen."


He says a sexual motive is an "obvious" possibility, and Kate and Gerry remain hopeful, as there have been "other cases, where a missing child has been found alive after many years." Plus, "the complete absence of any evidence that Madeleine has been physically harmed" is the reason Madeleine could still be alive.

Clarence believes Maddie was chosen, and abducted. "A child was taken to order from that room."

Clarence Mitchell thinks the McCanns are completely innocent
Speaking to The Telegraph, McCann spokesman Clarence Mitchell explained his involvement with the case. He said: "Some of the coverage had been very negative, and so I thought this was a chance to help them [Kate and Gerry].

“We have a good working relationship. Friendly but professional. We do not socialise, it is not necessarily appropriate, but the media coverage is still pretty intrusive and they see me as a part of dealing with it."

The McCanns have received a lot of bad press since the disappearance of Madeleine, and a lot of the conspiracy theories out there discuss the possible involvement of Kate and Gerry. Mitchell said this speculation isn't true, "a lot of it is misinformed, misguided and based purely on assumptions or lack of knowledge." He thinks the negative press is mainly down to prejudice, and people deciding they don’t like the McCanns. A huge reason why the public began to dislike the McCanns was because of the huge reward fund that was raised to help find Maddie.

Clarence Mitchell also addressed criticism of Kate and Gerry, labelling them as neglectful. He said: "There is even those who say that the parents know what happened. They don’t. It is just not true. But try explaining that in the noise of social media and general coverage."

Why did Kate and Gerry McCann come across so cold and emotionless?
Then there is the real reason why Kate and Gerry behaved the way they did in the public eye. Kate and Gerry's lack of public emotion caused a lot of speculation, despite Kate saying she "cries for Madeleine every day".

According to Mitchell, the McCanns were told by police to be cold and emotionless, as this would stop anyone that had taken her from getting kicks out of seeing the upset they created. He said: "One of the reasons they were so controlled was because they were told very early on that often, in the case of paedophilic kidnaps, the perpetrators watch media coverage and enjoy seeing the distress that they have caused.

"So, the police told them not to cry. Not to show any over-emotion. Kate and Gerry, both doctors and both logical, were not going to let that bastard have that satisfaction and so were very rigid."

But Mitchell understands that to your average person, this behaviour might be odd. "For someone who does not know that, they might think it looks a bit suspicious. It is almost like the public were expecting the parents to react in a certain way."

I totally believe that too.

People ask why Madeleine when there were a fair few blonde 3 yrs old at the resort? Sadly for Madeleine that corner ground floor apartment, darkened door recess, tall overgrown bushes and on a badly lit quiet road.... was probably ideal. :s_cry

In and out of that faulty front door....along the road to a waiting car would not have taken more than a minute or two.

Handler Martin said the dogs' sensitive noses could have been picking up scents from long before the McCanns stayed at the apartment or used the car.

Kate and Gerry were cleared of any involvement in their daughter's disappearance


We'll that's going to go down well with the numpties :s_no :mrgreen:

Why indeed?

The other point is that even if it could be established, firmly and definitively, that Madeleine's DNA was in the mix, that would prove diddlesquat, because there are innocent explanations of how it could have got there.

Swindells said cadaver dogs can make mistakes when hunting for "the scent of death". In Maddie, Swindells said an alert that cadaver dog Eddie had made on Madeleine's favourite soft toy, Cuddle Cat, appeared unusual and was "bullshit".

I find that a tad rough on Eddie. He was out of his comfort zone and wanted his toy back. Not the dog's fault. The Handler's ...

RTP journalist Sandra Felgueiras, who made an interview with Madeleine's parents, reveals some details of the case. If she initially followed the line of Portuguese research - which pointed to Maddie's parents as the prime suspects in her daughter's disappearance - the journalist acknowledged over a number of episodes that she had come to "a turning point." In episode number five (the series is eight, one hour each), the journalist made harsh criticisms of the Judiciary Police. "I have a lot of sources inside the PJ and I talked to a lot of people there, they told me that they found strong evidence inside the car and in the McCanns' apartment," says Sandra Felgueiras, referring to the blood and traces of DNA that will have been found in the car and apartment of Kate and Gerry McCann. Preoccupied by the fact that, after all, the evidence is inconclusive, the journalist says she's been lied to. "My internal sources lied to me. I called Amaral (at the time the inspector in charge of the case) and I asked him, 'What is this?'" The DNA found inside the McCann's car and apartment could be anyone's! "

The journalist even accuses the Portuguese PJ of negligence. "From there I realized that the intention of the PJ was not honest," he adds. Asked about the journalist's allegations, Gonçalo Amaral - a former police inspector - refused to give her information: "I never informed Sandra Felgueiras about any details of the investigation." The Netflix documentary became available on March 15 and points out the various lines of research that have been followed by both the Portuguese and English police and private investigators. It explores, above all, the hypothesis that Maddie has been kidnapped by a network of traffickers and admits the possibility of her still alive.

It IS quite sickening that the paper has to reproduce pictures of actual examples.

The verbal description would be quite enough.

Hmmm. Not overly impressed. At least in this case.

I doubt NotTextusa would be either.
