Madeleine McCann was just three years old when she was abducted from her family's hotel room in Portugal in 2007. A new investigation has uncovered some very bizarre leads that indicate the little girl may still be alive. Sadly, they indicate some involvement with an organized pedophile ring.
According to a report from OK Magazine, a private detective investigating the McCann abduction believes that Maddy is alive. Marcelino Italiano says he fears that two prominent business men from Portugal, with pedophile ties, may have strong involvement is the little girl's disappearance.
Madeleine McCann disappeared on May 3, 2007, from a resort in Praia dal Luz, Portugal. Her parents were dining at an outdoor restaurant a few doors away. They have been under constant scrutiny since her disappearance, and were initially thought to be involved. They are still considered negligent by many, for having left Maddy and her siblings asleep in their room while they left the apartment and dined with friends.
Kate and Gerry McCann, Maddy's parents, say they are grateful for this new information about their daughter. And while of course the implications aren't pretty, they do indicate that their daughter may still be alive.
Child protection expert Mark Williams-Thomas says it is now up to the police in Portugal to seek out the people identified in this latest claim.
Could it really be possible that little Madeleine McCann is alive after almost four years? What an incredible blessing that would be to her parents and family members. One can only hope and pray that there is some validity to these claims.
It will be interesting to follow this story and learn whether or not Madeleine McCann may have been kidnapped by people from an organized pedophile ring. While the ramifications of being controlled by such monsters would be unthinkable, finding their daughter alive would give the McCann family hope for a future with their family once again intact.
