Following up information already filed with respect to "The
Ocean Club" and Mr Lance. P whose parents occupy apartment 7 of
Block 2 (Garden), who spoke of having seen an individual several
times in tha area and described his physical appearance.
He confirmed several times that the man was thin, brown skinned,
about 35 years old, about 1,70m tall, with dark short hair.
While not having seen the clothing clearly, the man was not a
"ragamuffin". He last saw the man about two weeks ago.
In Praia da Luz, the man was always seen near the pharmacy in
Rua Helena do Nascimento Baptista, but he saw him at least twice
and, from memory, between 11h00 and 12h00 on the main access
road into Praia da Luz which leads to Rua Direita.
The man was always seen to be alone, and the witness ddoes not
know if he was Portuguese or a foreigner. To him, the man's
behaviour was always strange although he could not be specific
as to why he felt that.
Trying to find the man officers walked the streets of the areas
described by the witness, without success.
Mr. Lance P. drove to the DIC Portimao where he made a formal
statement and helped create the "e-fit" no 19/2007, attached.
