What we know:
A British couple on holiday in Cala d´Or said that they had seen a little girl resembling Madeleine on the beach on two occasions. The child was accompanied by two women, who had dark complexions unlike Madeleine. They told police at the time that they had seen the child and two women on two occasions. When the Bulletin published this report another British family contacted us stating: "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 Spanish police tried to trace the toddler and the two women after the first sighting report but their attempts proved unsuccessful. The child and two women had disappeared.
It is unclear whether the two possible sightings were during the same period or later on during the summer.
Granted that police received a large number of possible sightings of Madeleine McCann from across the globe but it is unusual that two came from a relatively small tourist resort in Mallorca at least during the same summer.

Slow news day?
It’s alarming to note that despite the overwhelming negativity directed to the recent number of similar pieces posted by Mr Moore in the MDB that he persists in spinning this unproven yarn even further when it clearly has no value to this sad story or to the now ( I assume) closed investigation. The big question for him to answer is WHY?
