Madeleine McCann: Twitter Explodes As She May Have Been Found

July 28, 2021 | Tim Ollason
 

When you think of the best things that have happened this year, you might think of the US release of the Samsung Galaxy S II, the rise of the tablet PC or maybe your favorite YouTube video, but if the latest big news story is true then they all fall into an insignificant bubble. Twitter has exploded because Madeleine McCann may have been found alive!

As things stand this is a rumor but she has been found in India and the child is pending a DNA test. You will find that usually the biggest stories start to trend on Twitter before they come on the news and that is the case with this one. We have scoured the news sites trying to find any information on this and as things stand its absolutely minimal.

One site that is recording the news is the DailyMail.co.uk, they say that the sighting was made in the northern city of Leh which is in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. This is the furthest north of India and apparently an American man tried to take the girl from the couple who claim she is their own. They are French woman and a Belgian man whose passports have been copied by the Leh police and now the McCann’s and the rest of the world await the results of a DNA test.

For anyone who for some reason doesn’t know, the story of Maddie McCann dates back to May 2007 where she went missing in Praia da Luz in Portugal on a family holiday, since then her parents have launched a worldwide search for their beloved daughter which has been unsuccessful so far. We are with the McCann’s and the rest of the world when we say that we hope this is her. Their endless, rigorous searching won’t have been in vain.

Over on the mirror.co.uk they have some computer images of what Madeleine may look like aged 6 but there’s no way of telling really other than DNA results. She could look completely different to the above images. We cannot iterate enough just how big this is not only for the McCann’s but for the world in general, if they have finally found their daughter after all this time then there perhaps won’t be a success story as big as this for a long time!

How hopeful are you that this really could be Maddy McCann? Do you have your fingers crossed for her family? Let us know your thoughts on this whole situation in the comments section below.

    I hope its her. I’ve been watching the news for hours now. No parents deserve the pain of loosing a child, and it must be so difficult not knowing if she’s alive or dead. Her parents deserve to have her home with them.

    Fair enough but they left three babies unsupervised as they went to eat dinner… I find that disgusting I doubt they’re fit to look after children tbh

    fingers crossed, but this may be just another sighting and im sure there have been millions of these over the past couple of years……. im really hoping and praying its her but. xxxx

    I know it’s part of how the case became known worldwide but I really got sick of the media bloodsucking this case to sell papers and felt so sorry for them having to go through all of this, because they continued long after it happened and honestly I thought she would never be found…

    But I really hope this is her and if it is her, I hope those responsible for taking her are jailed for life, and I mean life! I dont really agree with corporal punishment but I bet that those who do, will be calling for their heads (and if they’re arrested and kept in India, it probably will be their heads) because in fairness this is worse than murder, it’s like murdering of a child and then inflicting continuous torture on an entire family (and their extended family and friends)

    Anyway, I’m not religous but I will be saying an agnostic prayer and keeping anything crossable, crossed.

    the fact that they are taking DNA samples to me makes this the closest they have come yet… here’s hoping it really is her!

  • Tim Ollason

    Nice view damien, thanks for your contribution. If it turns out to be her then the people that are responsible for this really should be jailed forever… completely agree!

    They might not even find the people responsible…

    I completely understand where you are coming from on that as I personally a mother of 2 very small children would never do what they done, however this happens alot on holidays I am told and its pretty normal, each to their own. I dont understand why these people only took her when there were twin babies in the room too, suppose I’ll never know but my point is even if you wouldnt leave them on their own asleep doesnt mean its all their fault when its a normal thing to do on holiday! I hope that this little girl is her and that she is returned to her loving family that have never given up on her x

    I got shivers when I heard this story today. I would be absolutely elated if this turns out to be true. Please let it be true. However, if that is the case then Madeliene and her family will then have an even bigger journey to travel. The trials they have all been through cannot just disappear. But beyond anything, I truly truly hope that she has now been found and can be re-united with her loving family :)

    I was saying the same thing before to my gran its all very strange how the other two babies were left in their beds :S I guess we may never know… Don’t get me wrong I feel for the little girl and I do hope she is alive and well somewhere but I know when I was on holiday as a child we were never left on our own I don’t have any kids but I know if I did/ if this was in relation to my younger relatives I wouldn’t leave them alone and go off to dinner I’d either take them with me or eat in it’s no different than leaving small children in your home and popping to the mcdonalds up the road at night in England! If you want a holiday where you do things for yourself like go to dinner together without the kids etc you leave them at home with a relative! x

    No girl found in India but the Mccans saw her picture and their private detectives and their PR are connected with india police who never hear about this???
    SRINAGAR The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Thursday denied media reports that a British girl who had reportedly gone missing in Portugal four years ago was found in Leh.
    Abdul Gani Mir, deputy inspector-general of police (DIG), said: “We have not recovered any missing foreign girl from Leh. There is no question of carrying out a DNA test since we don’t have the girl. Our field staff in Leh have confirmed that no such girl has been recovered by them.

    I really hope they find her alive but I hope they dont give her back to the parents as in my eyes they were discusting for leaving them, I am a mother of 4 and I would never ever leave my children alone no matter how far away I was and especially not in a foriegn country I also wouldnt drug them to make them sleep, I really hope Madaline is safe and found but I think the pain the parents have been threw is there punishment for being rubish parents, I just hope it made them better parents to the twins, sorry if I have offended anyone its just my opinion

    totaly agree. What I dont understand is how they managed to keep the twins as if someone left there children and went out to dinner over here social services would take the children into care so how did theymanage to keep there kids. I also think they have made to much money off what happened to there little girl, I wouldnt want to write a book etc thats sick

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tracey-Luckham/1407123101 Tracey Luckham

    many others may leave there kids but how many actually sudate them so they stay asleep thats the worst part

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tracey-Luckham/1407123101 Tracey Luckham

    I agree no parent deserves loosing a child but after leaving them alone and sedating them they really arent very good paoents in the first place, if she wasnt left alone she wouldnt have been taken and if she wasnt sedated she could have screamed for help

    I agree I see what they did as unfit parenting! They did say all the proceeds from the book are put into continuing the search for maddie though…
