Six years ago today, in Praia da Luz, in The Algarve of Portugal,  an exclamation by Kate McCann from the balcony of a rented holiday apartment, sparked off one of the biggest and most expensive man hunts ever.
Many of us have read, in detail, the various accounts and theories as to Madeleine McCann's disappearance and the alleged abduction by a person or persons, as yet unknown.  We have seen the attempts made by various agencies, the Portuguese Police, a Spanish Detective Agency, Ex UK Police Detectives, Leicestershire Police and now the resources of Scotland Yard, to find a solution to the mystery.  Achievement so far - NOTHING POSITIVE.
Due to interference by UK Government the Portuguese Detective who was making progress with the case was removed from his task.   Perhaps this was the biggest mistake that was made.   Many are convinced that had Detective Amaral remained on the case it would now just be part of history.

Many people also regard the Parents of Madeleine as being responsible for their child's disappearance by leaving them totally unattended and without supervision when they went off with their friends to eat, drink and be merry.  

Everyone feels sorry for Madeleine and, naturally, hope she will be found one day.  
Very little sympathy is felt for the McCann parents who many consider were, by their actions, a contributing factor to their own loss.
