Earlier this week Bulletin Online reported that a British couple had reported seeing missing British toddler Madeleine McCann twice in 2008 in Cala d'Or and that they had informed police who had launched an investigation. This morning the Bulletin received news of another possible sighting in the same area in 2008.
"We visited in 2008 with the family as I had my 50th birthday there. This was my mother’s last visit to Cala d'Or as she was nearly 80 years old. One of the things that stood out though was she told her us she had seen Madeleine on the Cala Gran beach, on two occasions during our stay, sitting in a pushchair with what appeared to be a wig on. At the time we dismissed her remark but now we do wonder," the British family said in an email received by the Bulletin this morning.
The initial sighting report said that Madeleine was in the company of two women. Police had launched a full search but were not able to find them.
"Sadly my mother passed away last year at the age of 94 years and she always maintained she had seen her in Cala d’Or and she followed the investigation into Madeleine as we live in Leicestershire close to the village where Madeleine was from. Before my mother’s passing I had to assist her with a medical check at one of the Leicester hospitals where Madeleine’s mother was a doctor. After the check my mother said to Mrs McCann that she knew she had lost somebody as she could see it in her face and and she remarked that she felt the same as I had lost a sister (my mother’s daughter). Mrs McCann thanked my mother for her compassion," the email said.

This appallingly poor article was posted on 25 Feb yet it remains very prominently placed when scrolling down through posts. It should be bottom of the pile or no longer viewable, as is the case with all the other stories that get posted. But not this one. Why?
Can you please remove this article and all references to MM? It is truly disgusting ‘journalism’ and had no place in this publication or any other. True gutter stuff.
Jason Moore clearly needs to read the comments that have been uploaded the last week as he's been pushing this pointless dribble. What a loser this man must be. Scraping the bottom of the barrel. I now come to MDB purely for comedy value. It's trash.
These ancient pieces of rubbish sightings from godknowswho, with no substance at all give no benefit to this sad ( but very old) story and only makes the MDB look like a complete bunch of amateurs. Or rather you, Mr Moore. WHY? For Gods sake, there’s so much more going on to report on. Or are you pandering to what you think Uk based readers will want? Either way this story thread is very poor.
Madeleine was REPORTED missing when she was nearly FOUR. SHE WOULD NEVER BE IN A PUSHCHAIR, and no self respecting 4 year old would wear a wig for longer then two minutes, and only then as a joke. Madeleine was not seen after Sunday 29th April 2007, when the Pool Photo was taken (the date was altered later). She was REPORTED missing one day before the groups were due to leave, putting the police under pressure go to get quick statements, but leaving them likely time to dig deep. But they knew from the start it did not ‘add up’. And that remains the position today. Madeleine died in the apartment. the BRITISH dogs told us that. And the mother held the body close in her grief, as we can all understand she would naturally do. The British dogs told us that too. There is no evidence she was alive after the Sunday lunch photo. No photos, no videos, and no statements say definitively they saw her . . . NOTHING.
