Quote of the Day - Looking back on the Madeleine Case

Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns' spokesman, admitted the hunt for Madeleine in Morocco was difficult. In the remote mountains, the main industry is growing marijuana, controlled by armed gangs. 'It's a needle in a haystack' he said.

To date, all reported sightings of Madeleine in Morocco investigated by Metodo 3 have drawn a blank.

The agency's boss, Francisco Marco, said in one interview that Morocco was 'the most likely place to find her [Madeleine]' and that she would be rescued within months. He has also claimed that a blonde girl in a Moroccan family was a 'symbol of social status'.

Metodo 3, whose contract expires in March, has 40 investigators working on the case, here and in Portugal and Spain. Each has a replica of Cuddle Cat, Madeleine's favourite toy, which they are encouraged to squeeze when they feel demotivated at the size of their task.

  2. O Clarence Mitchell pensa que acreditamos nesta hisória de Marrocos?
    Nós não somos idiotas!

    Does Clarence Mitchell expects us to believe the Morocco story?
    We are not stupid!
