When Maddy Went Missing

The story of Madeleine McCann's abduction has been big news in America as well as Europe. Among the recent stories, this chilling anecdote that appeared in the London Telegraph last Friday, May 18. The story recounted an inconsistancy with the stories of a suspect's friend. Then, on another tack, there was this....

Meanwhile, a Norwegian woman said today she saw a young blonde girl who she was “very sure” was Madeleine in Morocco last week.

Marie Olli, who lives in Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol and once lived in Leicestershire, contacted police after returning home to Spain and hearing about the young girl’s disappearance.

She was on holiday with her husband in Marrakech on May 9 when she saw the blonde girl, who initially appeared to be standing on her own in a petrol station.

Then a man came over and the girl asked him: “Can I see mummy soon?”

Mrs Olli said: “I am very sure it was Madeleine."

The girl was wearing pale blue pyjamas with a small pattern on the top.

The man was in his late 30s and “anonymous looking”, wearing baggy clothes and carried an empty-looking rucksack with a camouflage pattern.

Mrs Olli said: “She looked sad. When the man saw me looking at them he turned away, so I couldn’t see his face.

“It’s very strange to see a small girl in a petrol station in Marrakech.

“If it was me with a child there I would hold their hand, but this man was a metre away from her.”
