The Madeleine McCann abduction mystery seems to be full of so many twists and turns that it would make an interesting case for Hercule Poirot, Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple and every other fictional and non-fictional detective. We now learn that that Metodo 3 who were employed by the McCanns to find Maddie had never found a missing child in their lives despite bragging to the contrary. It seems that their reputation is not as "squeeky clean" as it should be and that the company and individuals have tarnished reputations. Kevin Halligen who was also employed by the McCanns made wild promises to them but only came up with a Google Earth Image that was less than useless for the extotionate amount of money they paid . He is now being sought in connection with a £1m con and should never have been engaged in the search. For many months now the Maddie investigation has been carried out by two English detectives but yet again has not come up with any positive or useful evidence that we have seen. This all makes one wonder if the McCanns are using all the donations made by the public in a wise and efficient manner. Together with the vast publicity machine and propaganda, and employing questionable "experts" from soothsayers to investigators, the total spend must be well over 7 figures, and so far all to no avail. The McCanns themselves seem to be doing very little apart from paying out these vast sums to all and sundry. Maybe it is time for them to get up off their backsides, cease their "all expenses paid" trips all over the globe, and return to Portugal and start again from scratch. Possibly even meet with Detective Amaral - but no - that would too much to expect!
