Camionista viu mulher com criança em Silves

Quarta, 21 de Novembro de 2007

JOSÉ MANUEL OLIVEIRA /PAULA MARTINHEIRA

Menor estava enrolada numa manta e foi entregue a um homem
"Vi uma mulher a entregar uma criança a um homem numa estrada, na zona de Silves. O que mais me surpreendeu foi o facto de a criança estar enrolada numa manta, o que não é normal, numa tarde de Maio, com o calor que se fazia sentir no Algarve, na época".
Este testemunho foi transmitido há cerca de duas semanas à empresa de detectives privados espanhola Método 3, contratada pelo casal McCann para seguir o rasto de Madeleine, por um camionista português que garante ter visto a cena a 5 de Maio, entre as 16 e as 17 horas.
Segundo apurou o DN junto dos detectives, o homem, na altura, contou o que viu à Polícia Judiciária.

Confrontado com várias fotos pelos investigadores privados, entre as quais a de Michaela Walcuzh, a sócia de Robert Murat, o camionista apontou a alemã, de 34 anos, como sendo a que "lhe parecia ter estado na estrada de Silves a entregar a criança a um homem". "É uma pista que estamos a investigar com muita atenção, tal como muitas outras que nos chegam e não descuramos. Esta tem uma particularidade perfeitamente anormal, que é uma criança enrolada numa manta" com o calor que estava em Maio, frisou ao DN uma responsável da Método 3, que está no Algarve a investigar o caso.

Recorde-se que na altura do desaparecimento de Maddie, a PJ anunciou que, juntamente com a menina, também fora levada do quarto onde esta dormia, no The Ocean Club, na Praia da Luz, uma manta cor-de-rosa.

De acordo com as informações prestadas pelo camionista à Método 3, "a mulher entregou a criança ao homem que estava à sua espera junto a um carro preto estacionado numa zona de campo no concelho de Silves.
Dois dias depois do desaparecimento de Maddie e quando a imprensa destacava o caso e o rosto da menina britânica era já conhecido por toda a gente, o camionista deu logo a informação à PJ", contou a investigadora, acrescentando que o testemunho voltou a ser prestado à Método 3 quando a empresa abriu uma linha verde para quem tivesse informações a dar sobre o desaparecimento".
Este avistamento aconteceu na altura em que a PJ passou a pente fino as cassetes do sistema de videovigilância das áreas de serviço da Via do Infante na zona de Silves.

SIGHTING: Witness claims to have seen Madeleine being handed over

Wednesday November 21,2007
By Nick Fagge in Silves


A NEW witness saw Madeleine McCann being handed over to a professional gang who smuggled her out of Portugal to Morocco, police believe.
The witness called a detective agency to tell them he saw a woman “deliver” a little blonde girl who looked just like Madeleine.
The handover took place in the town of Silves 48 hours after Madeleine vanished. The woman gave the child to a man, who put her in his car.
A source at the detective agency said: “The witness later identified the woman as Michaela Walczuch after he was shown some pictures. He phoned us with his report about two to three weeks ago.” Walczuch is the lover of police suspect Robert Murat.
The detectives believe that the caller, a Portuguese lorry driver, was witnessing the handover of Madeleine to a Moroccan paedophile gang.
And they are working on the theory that the youngster was taken to the north African country either directly on a boat from Portugal or via Spain on the ferry to Tangier.
Silves is 25 miles from Praia da Luz, where Madeleine was snatched from the McCanns’ apartment.
But it is close to Portimao, where dozens of ocean-faring boats are moored. There is also a mountain road from there to Spain.
The source at the Metodo 3 private detective agency told the Daily Express: “We received a call from someone who said they had seen Madeleine two days after she went missing.
“The caller said they saw Madeleine in the inland town of Silves. We think it could have been the moment Madeleine was handed over by the original kidnappers.
“We are working on the theory that Madeleine was spotted as an easy target on the demands of a local gang and stolen to order.
“But because of all the publicity she became too hot to handle and she was either passed on or they sold her.”
The events in Silves took place down a small country road on the outskirts of the town on May 5. The trucker made contact with the detective agency to say he was struck by the fact that the child was wrapped in a blanket on such a hot day.
The witness said he saw a fair-haired and fair-skinned woman handing over the child in a blanket or a shawl.
He described the woman as northern European and driving an “extremely distinctive” car.
Detectives have described the vehicle, a hire car, as very unusual in Portugal in terms of its make, model and colour.
Last night a spokesman for the McCanns said the Find Madeleine Campaign was treating the new sighting seriously, but added that this was just one line of inquiry.
But a source close to the detective agency claims police are set to make arrests within weeks.
