'No law enforcement agency is looking for Madeleine'...
Over four years ago, the arguidos in the missing Madeleine case allowed the Portuguese police to controversially shelf and put on hold the investigation due to insufficient evidence. The fact that certain suspects and witnesses failed to co-operate didn't help. The PJ and the British Police continue to work in the background but will only reopen the case if any new credible information arises.
Now, criminal profiler Pat Brown has created her own independent Maddie Search Fund. The fund, which promises to be transparent, has been created thanks to sales of the ebook, Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
The book is available to buy online from Barnes & Noble and Smashwords at a snippet of $2.99 - 50% of sales will go direct to her own Maddie search fund. Please click to buy, your book will be electronically delivered within minutes.
Pat has confirmed that there is no conflicting ongoing search for Madeleine in Portugal and has purchased her ticket for travel to Lisbon on 6th February 2012. The search will begin shortly after, concentrating in and around Praia de Luz for starters.
Please follow Pat on Twitter, or visit the Official Criminal Profiler Pat Brown's Maddie Search Fund page on Facebook for updates on the fund and search. I would urge you to support and like this page, as she has bizarrely (but not surprisingly), taken a horrendous amount of abuse from supporters of the McCanns for her well intended actions.
Whichever side of the fence you sit on, this can only be beneficial for the most important person - Madeleline. Pat Brown is doing something that the majority of us would dearly love to do... travel to Praia de Luz to search. Credit where it's due, I wish her the very best of luck and success and hope she has rewarding findings which will either lead to Madeleine being found or help with the investigation. I would urge Pat to take the utmost care if she stumbles across any lawless villages on her travels.
And here's hoping that she has more success than the McCanns' own hapless private investigators. This has gone on years too long, we need a shining light. Most importantly, Madeleine needs it.
Help find Madeleine.
