    Maddie McCann - is enough enough?

    I feel bad for all those involved when i open the paper to read that she is spotted in every corner of the world.

    I iwsh all this hear say would stay out of the papers so proper police invstigation can be held.

    What do you think, is enough enough?

    It will never go away till they find her body with no body found she could be still alive.

    in my heart i want her found - alive but well....

    my head says otherwise - her parents will never ever stop looking

    look at the moors murders - 40 odd years ago - family still searching

    you would have to be in that position -

    all we can hope is one of those spottings in the corner of the world finds her alive and well

    I am slightly *****d off about it.

    The police have given up the investigation.

    Just wish they would find her, must be terrible for her mum and dad, That picture on the front of the paper today it could have been anyone, Why do people put such stupid things in the paper!! Spend some real time doing something worthwhile to find her!1

    its just that if someone was hiding her and she was spotted and it was all over a paper, im sure she would disapear again. Its such a shame and feels weird how long it has been

    What's weird is how this has become THE child abduction story, there is the odd child disappearing every once in a while in the UK, but many don't attain the publicity or common knowledge that the Maddy McCann's case has garnered.

    Something just isn't right about this case. It would be great if she was found alive and well - but I just can't see it.

    I was reading about some guy in the paper who thought he spotted Maddie in the Caribean on May 11th and waited to report it until he returned to the Uk now. He said he was 85% sure it was her. Why the F did he wait so long?????

    Exactly......Ben Needham is still missing but never got this amount of publicity. I'm getting tired of watching the McCanns on my telly......

    I thought that, too.

    Friends and I were there a week before she disappeared. Whilst we were all out one night a local asked if we had left our children at the villa as that is what all the English parents do........says it all really.

    We did report this to the police after Madeline went missing but they said it was irrelevant....just a local man ranting.

    i just think how different the press coverage would have been if she was a single mother with 5 kids

    it has been done to death on here, with the drama queens, the stories that are so far fetched it makes you wonder how many hukd members where holidaying with them, always starts out about innocent maddie and turns into a free for all

    i dont think the parents hurt maddie
    they must feel riddled with guilt after leaving them kids alone after all they have paid the worst possible price for leaving them alone they have lost their little girl probably forever

    id like to think people on benfits couldnt afford to go to portugal for two weeks!! I mean if it happened in this country the parents would have been done for neglect

    A. So people on benefits shouldn't go on holiday???

    B. How many single mums with FIVE kids are there on benefits compared to single mums with FIVE kids that support them single handedly WITHOUT ANY form of gov't support???

    I've got no prob with single parents...I've got no prob with people on benefits, if that's what you have to do to get by, all I was pointing out was there was a pretty much even split between those that said the parents were involved/responsible/negligent & those that said how terrible it was & how much they felt for them....as others have pointed out, other kids have gone missing both before & since without the same coverage & in the main, if it had been a single mum from an inner city estate, holidaying with her family, she'da got lynched in the media......

    they should not that they need it cos they dont work also it suggests that they are getting to much

    benefits are there to help them

    The term 'benefits' can include ANYONE in reciept of Gov't 'assistance'.....this includes people claiming family tax credits which can include 2 parents in low paid occupations......

    No reason for anyone to lynch you for something that's badly worded....we all slam out a response that's badly worded sometimes & sometimes editing it makes it look like you changed your opinion or are trying to hide something (previously typed) which is why I rarely bother.....

    Bottom line, there are people that scam the system, those that have grown up with 'parents' who have spent their 'lives' signing on, there are people that use it to get 'em through a few tight weeks/months & those that through whatever reason will be supported by the taxpayer for the rest of their lives??!?

    All that matters is that people recognise there is & can be a difference............

    It does me, i admit, i'm not working at the moment but do not have kid's at the drop of a hat to pay for my existence.

    I probably won't be having a holiday this year, due to lack of money.

    Newly-released evidence reveals a man tried to abduct a child at McCanns' flat 8 months before Maddy was taken..

    A suspected abductor was spotted spying on Madeleine McCann's flat before she vanished - but Portuguese police ignored the tip-off, it emerged yesterday.

    British babysitter Margaret Hall was caring for a girl aged six in the same apartment when she saw the prowler lurking in the dark and peering inside.

    A statement and his description were passed to officers - who dismissed it as irrelevant, their files on the bungled probe reveal.

    Last night a friend of Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry branded the police reaction "astonishing".
