Could This Really be a Picture of Madeleine McCann in Morocco, Why Are the Portuguese police not Interested?



Madeleine McCann_Morroco

A possible picture and lead may have surfaced in the case of missing Madeleine McCann. However, “Portuguese police were not interested in her report because they assumed that Madeleine was already dead”. So why are the police not interested in solving the case?

A snatched picture purporting to be of Madeleine McCann in north Morocco was published last night, generating new momentum in the search for her.

Gerry and Kate McCann called last night for the picture, taken on August 31 by a Spanish tourist and handed to the McCanns’ lawyers yesterday morning, to be fully investigated. (Fox News)

New photograph shows child like Madeleine McCann on African woman’s back

The picture shows a light-skinned, blonde-haired girl being carried in a sling on a Moroccan woman’s back near the town of Zinat. It is the fourth reported sighting of a girl fitting Madeleine’s description in Morocco since she disappeared on May 3 but the first published picture.

A Spanish newspaper reported yesterday that another tourist saw a girl resembling Madeleine as she drove through the town of Zaio in northern Morocco at the end of May.

Hopes that a blonde girl photographed in Morocco could be Madeleine McCann have been dashed after British journalists said they had tracked her down.

      wow, it does look like her.

      Police have said Madeleine’s parents did it so they won’t be looking for her anymore….we will probably never know who this little girl is.

      The picture really does resemble Madeleine, why would anyone want to doubt the fact that it could truly be her.

    4. Richard on September 26th, 2007 11:51 am

      From what I understand, the “evidence” against the parents, implicating them in Madeleine’s disappearance, has nearly collapsed. In effect, there is no case against them.

      Two independent sightings of Madeleine in Morocco … seems to be reason to think that it could indeed be her.

      But children don’t get kidnapped for evil purposes, any more than do Americans in the Caribbean.

      Let’s pray it is Madeleine. Hopefully, maybe Britan will look into this.

      I think you will find the journalist was Spanish

      The dead giveaway was that a 4 year old girl would not be carried on the back as shown in the photo. My granddaughter is 4 years old and there’s no way on earth anyone would carry her on their back like that. Madeleine is not a dwarf is she?

      Looks like a phony photograph to me…How much does she weigh? I would think the abductors would have at least had a hat on her…Plus, the shadows don’t align properly.

      If you look at the complete photo you can clearly see the light coming in from the top right hand side of the photo, the child’s right side (our left) should be in some shadow.

      Check out the lady next to her in black…the shadowing should be exactly the same, it isn’t…in fact, it’s opposite of what it should be. What should be the shadow side is actually brighter!;_ylt=AoLnXx0HUcWPkGQnIERYL68DW7oF

    9. Robots on September 26th, 2007 6:09 pm

      it is not her.

      in my opinion, anyway

    10. Maggie on September 26th, 2007 7:33 pm

      I agree it somewhat like her, sadly I don’t believe it is.

    11. brie on September 27th, 2007 3:11 am

      Well, the family took a risk and because of that there were consequences, I feel sorry for Madeleine. You just cannot leave your children alone and unattended. Anywhere!

    12. Ray on September 27th, 2007 3:26 am

      If it is not madeleine,can we be sure the child belongs to the women she is with, sure does not look like her biological child.

    13. brenda on September 27th, 2007 8:21 pm

      I am still of the opinion the Port. police are covering for one of their own. Maybe they are getting kickbacks from someone who is moving children through their jurisdiction. YOu know…like the sex-slave trade we know is alive in well in the southern hemisphere and beyond. Possibly children are coming in/out of their port and GOD FORBID that is discovered/disclosed!

      I say a similar situation to the corrupt police in Aruba.

    14. Auntiem on September 30th, 2007 12:11 pm

      I am in agreement with Ray in #12….Why in the world is a blonde child being carried by a Morrocan woman…certainly that child is not her child, she is totally out of place in that whole picture, which appears to be quite poor Morrocan farmers!!! And I don’t believe that the woman is her “Nanny”, as the whole group seems to be in an obscure, poor village.

      The picture is either “Photocropped” or the child is Madeline or another “kidnapped child.

      Did anybody investigate the photographer who provided this picture? He is either guilty of vile deceit or he watched and took a photo of Madeleine or another kidnap victim and did nothing!! Does anyone know who this creep is??

    15. andrea on February 29th, 2008 5:32 am

      nobody went out from this world without paying…
      and earlier or later truth appears…
      God blesses MAdeleine wherever she is.

    16. Jane on March 26th, 2008 2:05 pm

      there’s an interesting forum covering the madeleine mccann story at

    17. Jen on March 31st, 2008 5:11 pm

      Looks like the Portuguese police investigating the Madeleine McCann disappearance are in further talks with British police – link

    18. olivia on April 13th, 2008 6:19 pm

      Wow it looks like her hopefully it is and she gets back to her family soon

    19. apple, 11 yrs old! on August 11th, 2008 3:54 pm

      Well it looks a tiny bit like her but when she was younger. And hope some1 will find her soon she’s a brave little angel wherever she is!

    20. rupert on November 27th, 2008 4:29 pm

      I’d doubt that she will ever be found, face reality, she’s most probably dead, her body either burnt or sunk deep down in the sea or something. Even if she is alive, someone isnt just going to give her up, think how much she is worth (if she’s alive)

      i think that her mother killed her by accident, seeing as she had madalines blood on her and her toy, but was washed after she had gone missing? Very strange

    21. alice on July 12th, 2009 7:00 pm

      its not Madeline and there are Moroccans with fair skin and fair hair..they are the berbers.
      I am moroccan and my brother is blonde, i have brown hair.

    22. mo on November 4th, 2009 5:35 am


      dont waste your time explaining that there are blonds in morocco to a bunch of ignorants (Ray et al)

      it is insultng and utter stupid and people should think first before writing pure garbage

      excuse my tone but i am just fed up and tired of how ignorant people are about a country that happens to JUST 11 km away from europe

      ps: i hope they find maddie and all other kidnapped kids
      SM: Actually by informing people of new knowledge is how you make people understand, not you attitude of calling people stupid.

      I bet there is a whole lot you are ignorant about, just a guess.

    23. Chloe on May 23rd, 2010 8:50 am

      All I hope is that they find her. The people who ‘kidnapped’ her probebly sold her to child slaverly as she does have blonde eyes and blue eyes and the child slave industray usually have them kinda children- Ive been reasearching. I just hope shes alive and I hope they’ll find her!

    24. Kayzer on May 6th, 2011 6:05 pm

      I belive that the parents of her are murderes and tried to drug her but it went rong so they hid the body somewhere they wouldn’t find her

    25. eman on April 1st, 2014 11:11 am

      she looks a lot like madeline I hope she really is, it can also be happened that her kidnappers left her some where in the jungle or any place(they can do this because it is cleared that the kidnappers came or robbery and there talks woke madeline up from sleep so that’s why they took her because she sawthem robbering) they had nothing to do with a child so maybe they left her anywhere in morocco and this women discovered her and maybe taking her to her home for help or some facility. and madeline was 3 years old so she cant tell description like where she livedwhat happened what is her parents phone number? I hope she come back home soon.
