Missing Girl Case Re-opened

Posted on November 20, 2013 by


In May of 2007, three-year-old Madeleine McCann went missing from Praia da Luz in the Algarve, Portugal. This case was just reopened recently by Portuguese police.

“It is horrible.  I’m glad they re-opened it,” assistant teacher Kyle Yasembousky said.

On Thursday, 3 May 2007, at 8:30pm, Kate and Gerry McCann, Madeleine’s parents, left their apartment to have dinner without their children. At 9:05 p.m., Gerry went back to the apartment to check on the children. An hour later, a man was spotted with a child in pajamas heading towards the ocean. This also happened to be the time Kate realized her child had gone missing.

Recently this week, officers found a man who they think could be the possible suspect. This man was supposedly seen around this time carrying a child. He fit the description of a 40-to-45-year-old man. The other suspect is said to be anywhere from 25-30 years old.

There are also speculations that the parents were involved with kidnapping.

Hopefully with the police reopening the case, the child will be found.

“They need to find justice for the little girl,” science teacher Erin Foweiller said.
