Pat, talking from Praia:
"“We have a situation here where there are two parents who have refused to
cooperate fully with a police investigation – who have refused to answer
questions, who have changed their stories and fled from jurisdiction – but who
have then taken their story - in the way they want us to believe it - to the
media, asking people to donate money to fund a search for a child who,
statistically-speaking, is almost certainly dead!”
“I can understand
bereaved parents doing some crazy things, but never have I seen parents like

and the second simplest answer is that she died in a tragic accident and her
body was disposed of”.
“To eliminate the second simplest answer, we have
to establish without doubt that there was an abduction – and that hasn’t

reconstruction of the night Madeleine went missing?
“Hell yes! And that’s
what they have consistently refused to go along with – all of them: the McCanns
and the rest of the Tapas group! The McCanns particularly have been their own
worst enemies. They could provide answers in a number of ways: by taking part in
a reconstruction, by submitting to polygraph testing. You see, they have to be
