Common Sense & Family Matters

Madeleine Mccann Missing more than 2 years

May 3, 2007 Madeleine’s parents went out for dinner and left her alone, sleeping, a few days before her 4th birthday while they went out for dinner. That was the last time they have seen her since. There have been many people who have condemned them for leaving her unsupervised. In fact they were considered suspects in the beginning. Many people have expressed their disbelief in their innocence, that even leaving a child alone is unthinkable, and therefore a testament to their guilt.

Hogwash.

From what I can gather where they were eating was a mere 130 yards from the apartment where Mady lay sleeping, so it’s not like they went across town. As a parent I can understand the need for some alone time, and to grab it whenever the chance presents itself. I myself might have done the same thing in a similar scenario. After all, my child was in a locked apartment, in a safe cozy bed, in a building within my sight. Tell me NONE of you might not do the same.

There were some unconfirmed sightings in Portugal and even a witness that came forward describing a man carrying a small child in the area that Mady went missing. A composite drawing was made. Still, no sign, no word, and no Madeleine.

Many people suspected Victoria Stafford’s mom of being involved in her disappearance. Law enforcement will tell you the statistics point to a member of the family being involved are very high. Perhaps they rely on that too much.

Just another case where GPS would have found this little girl, and her parents would have her back safely, or have closure.

The problem isn’t going away, and we shouldn’t stop fighting.

  2. Sweet little Maddy! The picture of the little blonde girl on the back of a woman that surfaced many moons ago got my hopes up … I thought it was her. 😦

    WHERE IS SHE? Please bring maddy home!

    I agree…GPS…would of found maddy alive within an hour or two…it was not long before they found her missing.

    More scenarios then not have me believing there would be more children found alive then not using GPS.

  3. I totally agree GPS would have prevented this child from being missing so long! I think people are turned off by the “implanting” aspect of the device,maybe if there was a “GPS” bracelet or earrings,something to put on the child when they sleep or are left with a sitter ot alone >>>~JMO~

  5. There are GPS devices available right now that can be purchased in most Countries. The problem is that a bracelet, necklace, or other such device can be removed. It can even then be used to mislead or throw off law enforcement in direction. An implant is totally different.

    • I didn’t realize there are GPS devices in other countries,could you get a link for info on this?? I’d appreciate,when you have the time. I never thought of the “throwing off direction” thing. I understand it could be easily removed,but,some abductors are hurried and wouldn’t realize possibly,it’s better than nothing,our cars and pets have a GPS,why not our children? Maybe contacting Mrs.McCann would bring some attention,she seems to be looking for ideas to safeguard our children??~JMO~

    • Beast, might be good for an old person who “escapes” from the house. My poor old neighbor did that back home. Walked 1 1/2 blocks up to the school, where she walked her little dog daily, and forgot where she lived! Police helped her. Those GPS devices might be perfect for them.

      I know other friends who had to put new locks on the doors, and had to disable their CARS! Alzheimers. 😦

  6. I am with the utmost respect going to disagree with a part of this article.

    Not me! Not a chance Beast! I would never for one second leave children that age alone. Too many things could go wrong, including accidents. If I can afford a resort vacation, I can afford the babysitting service. I’ve seen various pictures of where the McCann’s sat and no one at that table could see any part of their hotel room, door or area. It is their fault their daughter is missing even if a stranger took her.

    I used to work with parents of missing children in Canada and have the utmost of respect for them all. My BUT in it is that we can do more.

    Was it okay for Michael Dunahee’s parents to put their 6 yr old in charge of a 4 year old while the parents go into the next field to play baseball with trees in between? No, not okay. Would their child be missing today? No he wouldn’t.

    Would Madeline be alive if her parents hired a nanny from the resort? Absolutely.

    Would Leslie Mahaffy be alive if her parents chose not to lock their grade 9 daughter out of the house for a late curfew? Yup

    Do these parents deserve the life time of pain and guilt and the endless ‘what ifs’..??? Goodness NO! I do feel they need to be advocates for a better solution! If one of them was behind your efforts, more would hear your message, imo.

    We can’t do everything, be everywhere and see everything, I agree!!! Your fight for GPS for children is a fantastic solution. Many children would be alive today if it was available without doubt!

    • I was under the impression that they could see the building from where they were. Sort of in my mind looking at the window where she was sleeping. We don’t ever leave our children alone, but I can “understand” the need to get away for a few minutes. That’s the point I was trying to get across. They are suffering enough for the mistake, I don’t think it does any good to continue attacking them for it.

  7. 😦 you cant be too careful with your kids, I think that going the extra mile to hire someone to watch your children is worth so much more than the consequences that can result from not.

    I hope they find her soon or find out what happened 😦 I can imagine the heart ache of everyday.

  8. We are all in different places. Some have many kids, some one. Some have big houses, some very small ones. We all have to get away but it is truly dangerous out there. We can NEVER let our guard down!!!

    I would bet pedophiles are well aware that families on vacation are more “lax” with everything, including their children, than at other times. THAT, as we see is dangerous. They are always out there … trolling, cruising … watching. They are DRIVEN it seems!

    It wouldn’t surprise me if they didn’t see beautiful Maddy during the day at the pool, and set their plan into motion. I understand the parents had this exact same plan every night, went out to dinner, left the 3 children alone in the “locked” room.

    Could be a maid be involved? Could it be a “couple” working together? Selling children – for whatever reason? Leave a window … unlocked? OMG.

    This most recent thing … that woman looking for “the child”. She is a middle man? Selling children to couples who want a child … or WORSE? Could be an inside job then. How could that person know it would be safe, ok – to come in a window. IF the window was unlocked, it would be much quicker!!!

  9. I believe something needs to be done about sexual preditors and the protection of our children, but I’m not sure it is fair to the children to have to implanted w/ a GPS device; would you want to be implanted w/ one? I believe “big brother” is already getting too powerful & such devices should be more of a punishment for rapists, sex offenders and others that violate the law.
    What is our future coming to? From here out are children going to have to be “branded” w/ some kind of device that makes keeping track of them easier while decreasing the responsiblities of the parents? It already seems there is a lack of parental guidance/control and I still believe implanted tracking & identification devices should be reserved for law offenders and our pets.

    • Unfair to the child, how? They can be removed when they get older. And I do not think it is the parents fault in most cases. Yes there are some parents that could be more careful when it comes to watching their kids. But just last week in Ottawa a child was almost abducted right in front of the parents at an OC Transpo station. Blaming the parents is not fair. That’s like saying the pedophiles are not responsible and need treatment, not punishment. Hogwash.
