    This is becoming in a very mediatic case. Portuguese and English Press are always talking about this case. PJ is known as one of the best police investigators in the World, but the situation is getting really complicated for them to solve, and we don't know exactly where is Gerald and Kate's children.

    What are your opinions with this case??

    Some people thought they saw her in morocco pleading with a man, and asking when she could 'see her mummy' .
    If this is true, I think they may have a chance at finding her, and bringing her back safely. If it isn't, I don't think they'll find her alive.

    I dont agree with portueguese police being good.

    The english news has been saying that the portugeuse are being quite bad about this.

    I.E, when doing the road checks, they stopped and talked for a few hours not checking vehicles and a big transit van goes past. . .

    When taking finger prints they dressed casual not all in white protective overalls. .

    At least they are trying to help:)

    If anyone knows anyone about madeline i would beg them to contact the police.

    Any aid received from the police is good in-order to find her. When I heard the news that she may be in Morocco, I was actually happy that she is still alive. Lets hope the police manage to find her as soon as possible.

    If she is never found, God forbid. I hope that she was abducted because someone badly wanted a daughter, although they should have never went to those lengths.

    Anyway, people can't blame other country's policing skills because they don't know their attitudes to certain cases. If anything, they're still trying to help, don't know about anyone else, but, that's a good thing.

    If she was seen in Morocco, how did she get there? How was she able to get out of Portugal that quickly without police all over the place?

    My opinion is that people are making a big fuss over it simply because the victim happens to be English. Why is it that the press are so obsessed with things which happen to English nationals and don't care at all about the same things when they happen all over the world every freaking day?

    She's probably just a statistic by now and, tbh, I couldn't care less. Welcome to the real world kids.

    A kid got kidknapped, that's definately a bad thing, but the fact is everyone is hyping up as if it is something which is uncommon. It's not uncommon, it's not special and - frankly - the only reason anyone cares is because this girl speaks English and not some other language.

    So, yeah, you call me sick all you want, I'm not the one ignoring the reality of the situation. I'd rather be a sick realist than an idealist who really needs to take off the rose-tinted glasses.

    No, its not because she's english, it's because she is a little girl that got kidnapped out of the hotel room in a foreign country.

    Whys the point in telling every one to tone it down?

    If all your family got killed you'd want police help and for people to help you and make a big thing.

    Lay off maddie.

    Well if they were dead then the police investigation would be over :)

    WIN!

    The fact that she could be alive is why it's still in the papers. And to be quite frank with you all this internet petition bullshit won't help the police

    UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund, says millions of children each year are bought, sold or kidnapped into slavery. Another international aid group, Save the Children, says more than 120,000 girls and young women, some as young as eight years old, have been forced to take an active role in armed conflicts, many of them in Africa.

    Shockingly, none of this is in the paper at all. Ever. Yet the case of one English girl has dominated the news for the last week. It's a tragic thing to have happened, sure, but I just find it sick that the media only cares about English speaking tragedies.

    I'm not asking people to tone down; I simply think people should reaslise that the problem is much bigger than this one single case and perhaps focus their efforts on doing something more meaningful.

    This is a kidknapping case so congratulations on your out of context remark. You are right, though, I would want the Police to help because that's their job - I wouldn't want the press to hype it for weeks of news coverage, though, because unlike most people I have a much wider view of the world. This kidknap should have been reported - but not for hour upon hour of news coverage about things which have barely changed. When something important happens then they should report it but, otherwise, get on with other news.

    I wasn't laying into Maddie; I just think people should appreciate the wider picture and focus more on the problem instead of the symptoms.

    Like I said - it is tragic when people are kidknapped but this stuff happens all over the world and it's that which people should get into a big huff about. Not single cases. Single cases are for the Police to solve.
