Report related to sexual crimes - A***** G*****

Information provided during his holiday stay in Portugal in June 2007 - Madeleine McCann.

In the sequence of my report 20/06/ 2007 I send the following.

Mr G*** says that he could have seen the missing girl, Madeleine McCann in the shopping centre in Sete Bicas on 20-06-2007. When he was asked why he did not communicate this fact to the Portuguese police, he said that he had not thought about it much at the time.

On this date I spoke to Detective Connell about Mr G****. Detective Connell describes Mr G***** as a very strange individual who fully complies with the sex register requirements.

These elements are sent to the Portuguese police for their information.

Information about A***** G*****, resident in Cork - Madeleine McCann

With reference to the above A****** G****** stated that he himself had been registered by the 2001 sexual crimes law. On the afternoon of 29th June 2007, he went to the Barrack Street police station, the reason he went was the fact that on 21st June he returned from a trip to Portugal. He informed Officer O'Connell that during his trip he stayed at Rua da Firmeza in Porto. He also mentioned that on 20th June at 17.30 when he was travelling he saw a girl whom he thinks was Madeleine, he just has a vague idea and returned to the police station on 3rd July to provide more detailed information. When he was travelling on the metro, station Sete Bicas (see map), when he was at this stop he went to the shopping centre. When he was walking towards the shopping centre he saw a middle aged man walking with a girl aged 3 - 4, with a slim face and long blond hair. He says that he did not think it normal that the girl should be with an older man. He says that they were both sitting on a bench outside a clothes shop on the ground floor. When asked if he thought the girl was distressed, he stated that she was not, but she was looking straight ahead. A*** G**** was not able to elaborate on the clothing of the girl, other than she had pants on. His description of the male was 55-58 years old, either Spanish or Portuguese national, with balding hair, black hair to the sides, wearing grey pants and grey shirt with a white pin stripe. When asked why he didn't report it to the authorities in Portugal, he stated that he did not think very much of it at the time. A*** G*** has provided a map of the relevant metro system which is attached.

Forwarded for your information please.

Place: Lagos and Odiaxere

By : Inspectors Simao and Gomes

Description and Result of Inquiry

In response to an order from superiors and in response to a communication received by the PSP Lagos Squadron saying that in Odiaxere at about 17.00 a woman was seen pushing a car with a little girl who was apparently Madeleine McCann. By making various trips around the streets of the locality, the woman was found pushing the car in the main road with a small girl.

When asked to identify herself, she responded that she was M***** I***** C******, resident in Odiaxere and that the little girl was her niece, aged two, whom she was taking care of at that moment.

The undersigned approached the little girl, who told him that she was two years old in Portuguese and that her name was J***** and that her aunt was pushing the car.
The inquiry was terminated, stating that this was absolutely not Madeleine McCann.

Afterwards and taking into account document 93/05 JAPM relating to child abuse, Mr C***** C***** R***** an English man was investigated, who had fled from justice to an unknown destination and that his mother and stepfather own a bar called the Plow (sic) and Arrow on the main road of Luz, some 150 metres from the site of the events and it was thought important to establish whether this individual had been present in the region on the date of the events.

The Man's stepfather said that his wife was in England and that her son C***** R**** R**** since the facts that had led to him being included in the document had not returned to Portugal and stated that he was working in Iraq as a photographer.
