Is Martin Brunt spinning Another Story? Missing Bag, DNA and Paedophiles


For those who are interested, The Madeleine McCann Mystery’ is being shown tonight (Christmas Eve) at 7.30pm (GMT) on Sky Digital Channel 501 and Freeview Channel 82.

The Press Association 24 december: Madeleine: Sex offender 'a suspect'

In the programme, The Madeleine McCann Mystery, Sky News Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt claims all 52 British sex offenders with links to the Portuguese holiday destination have been investigated and only one remains in the frame as the search for the missing four-year-old continues.

The programme features forensic expert Professor David Barclay, who says it is unusual for children of Madeleine's age to be abducted by paedophiles.

He said: "There are two options. She (Madeleine) came to harm at the hands of some member of the family or of friends, or that it was some paedophile who happened to be passing by. Both are really, really unlikely but we know she's gone.

There are only two options for Madeleine’s disappearance – forgetting about the claim of paedophiles for a moment – she either came to harm at the hands of family or friends, or she was abducted. Both options can’t be really, really unlikely. I agree that the abduction is unlikely, after all, (apart from Jane Tanner’s account which can be discounted on the grounds that she is a friend and has changed her description of the apparent abductor several times,) there has not been one single shred of evidence to point towards Madeleine being abducted. If Madeleine was not abducted then there is only one other option left to explain her disappearance.

"Abduction for sexual purposes of children is eight, nine, 10-year-olds. It is really, really unusual to want to take a child of three-and-a-half.

"It would be somebody overcome by the urge at that time. I mean, how often can you do that and get away with it?

"There are no people in Praia da Luz that have got that sort of history. I know people who have got that, they have been looked at but they (the Portuguese police) didn't check up on the other people staying in the apartments."

Mr Brunt also claims a blue tennis bag used by 39-year-old Gerry McCann hours before Madeleine disappeared has gone missing. The claim has been rubbished by the McCanns' family spokesman, Clarence Mitchell. He said: "As far as Kate and Gerry are concerned, there's no missing tennis bag. They came back from holiday with everything except of course, tragically, Madeleine."
