Some weeks ago it was widely reported that the British Police on the case had 38 suspects that they wished to interview.  Since then time has passed, the publicity has been repeated and we now learn that Officers from the UK will soon be travelling to Portugal to continue the investigations.

In the meantime, we wonder what those 38 people have been doing, in the light of the fact that they may be taken into custody sometime in the future.   Presuming that of the 38, only one or two would be connected with the alleged Maddie abduction, those one or two would be making themselves pretty scarce.   Maybe they have been given too much warning and the chance of the Police finding them may well lead to a wild goose chase to the nether parts of the World.

We wonder what "evidence", if any, the Police hope to find, or will it just be some "opportunistic", "circumstantial", "you were there at the time" evidence that any decent defence lawyer will be able to drive a tank through?  The evidence was in and around the flat at the time of Maddies disappearance.    The Portuguese Police were presented with forensic evidence, witness statements, and enough circumstantial evidence and other facts to conclude everything there and then.   The main man, Detective Amaral was discharged from the case!     The full reason for his removal has never been explained, although pressure from "high places" has been mooted.   It makes one wonder, if the British Police get close to a solution, will they suffer the same ignominy?   Let's wait and see!

there are lots of children snatched in the uk and abroad (who came from the uk) why is this case anymore special?

It is a well known fact that offences against children, including abduction, are mostly carried out by a relative or someone close to the family. This tends to be the case in most civilised countries.
From the descriptions so far published, the culprit does not appear to be Portuguese or any coloured race.
