McCanns: SIMULATING Abduction?

The COT and what I believe is PROOF of the staged abduction. Ocean Club employee, Maria Julia de Silva , her witness statement caught my eye because of what she noticed Wednesday morning, May 2nd. Maria cleaned the apartment the day before Madeleine disappeared. 

She remembers that when she entered Apartment 5A on the Wednesday, the parents were inside. After being duly authorized, she entered and carried out her work, because they were already on their way out.

While she was in the apartment, there were no children there, and she supposed that they were in the creche. While performing her work, she remembers having noticed that the couple were sleeping in the room located opposite the entrance, where she confirmed the presence of a child's bed (crib) or cot. 

The room gives onto an outdoor garden by means of a terrace, as it is on the ground floor,. In the room next to the entrance to the apartment there was a bed placed next to the wall (where she supposed the missing child slept), and also the second child's bed (crib). 

All these beds were untidy at the time, meaning that they had been used. She also declares that in the room next to the entrance was another bed that had not been used.


Maria Julia de Silva noticed something of great importance. The COTS or CRIBS.....One being in the parents room and the other in the room Maria presumed Madeleine had slept. 

AND YET the following evening both cots were together in the same room...Madeleines room.... The alleged ‘ABDUCTION’ was the following night and with the arrangement the way it appeared of children sleeping in two seperate rooms are we to believe the ‘abductor’walked around the apartment looking for children to steal?


SILVIA MARIA BATISTA Silvia is responsible for maintenance in ‘The Ocean Club’ Silvia said she was alerted about the disappearance of Madeleine between 22.30 and 23:00. 

She was at home and was informed of the event via a telephone call. She drove immediately to the Ocean Club where she arrived a few minutes before elements of the GNR (Local Police) popped in. 

After she arrived she went immediately to the apartment 5A where she found several people inside the apartment and outside of it. She entered the flat but soon left without having spoken with anyone, because she was informed that elements of the GNR (Local Police )were in the principal reception. 

She went there to meet them. When she came close to the elements of the GNR (Local Police) she found that behind her was Gerry, Madeleine's father, accompanied by another man whose identity she doesn't remember. 

Then Gerry kneeled down, hit the floor with both hands, positioning himself as if he were a praying Arab, and screamed twice of anger, what he said being impossible to understand. Then Gerry stood up and accompanied her (the witness) and the other man in the car of the GNR to apartment 5A. . 

Silvia entered the apartment and asked for the passports of all elements of the family, and also photographs of the missing girl. She went with Gerry to the GNR car to hand over the requested documents. She mentions she did this, as well as other tasks, at the request of the GNR Commandant, because she could translate their questions and the missing girl's family's answers. 

She remembers Gerry gave the Commandant several photographs of the missing girl. They were postcard-like pictures, taking into account their size and shape and seemed all the same to her. (ODD they were so quick to have Madeleines photographs ready to give to the police when thoughts were still the child could have wandered off, it would appear abduction had been decided before the police had even arrived)

Silvia understood also, that since the very beginning either Gerry or the others insisted on stating that Madeleine had been snatched, all using the word "ABDUCTED” instead of MISSING, and all showing much interest in informing the press of the situation. 

She also recalls entering the room where Madeleine should be sleeping and remembers now that the door was closed. The room was dark. The blinds were down, some light entering through their holes. The windows were closed and the curtains slightly open. 

Gerry, who followed her and the elements of the GNR, said he did close the window because of the babies sleeping in the room, a fact she confirms. (...and we must remember the ONLY fingerprints found on the window belonged to Gerrys wife, KATE HEALY.) 

Gerry said that when he discovered the disappearance of Madeleine he noticed that the window and the blinds were open and the curtains fluttering. Why did Gerald McCann interfere with the shutters and window immediately he entered the room after Madeleine had been supposedly discovered missing? Surely he knew this was evidence....BUT he has already explained, he closed them for fear the twins would catch cold. (So, in actual fact there is NO ONE who saw this window open , we once again ONLY have the word of the parents...when Silvia entered the shutters were down she noticed the room was in darkness.) 

Silvia recalls that the beds which were in the middle of the room and used by the babies were aligned and therefore found it strange that someone had taken Madeleine from the bed where she would be sleeping and had gone to the window because there was no space to pass. (AGAIN I draw to your attention the two cots ...which are now BOTH in the same room ...Madeleines room ....and Silvia noticing the cots created a barricade where it was impossible for someone, anyone to pass) 

Silvia opened the wardrobes of that room in order to confirm that Madeleine wasn't eventually hiding there. Then everyone left the room and someone shut the door. She remained for some time in the living room, near the GNR elements, Gerry and other elements of the group who went in and out and spoke on their cellular phones. 

She observed that none of the elements of the group including the father and mother of the child was concerned with looking for her. The mother was sitting on the bed of her room, the father was with her (the witness) and the elements of the GNR, and other elements of the group went in and out and spoke on the phone, anxious, in her opinion, to tell the press what had happened.


The parents were also very anxious to tell family and friends back in England that Apartment 5A had been broken into...The shutters were smashed and Jemmied... 

This of course was a blatant lie there was no break in nor any sign of any smashed or jemmied shutters. Silvia Batista was in the room with Gerry and GNR and at no time does Silvia mention she noticed a broken shutter or Gerry mentioning this to GNR. 

The Mccanns had been very clever, by telephoning their friends the night of May 3rd, the following morning all English TV channels, thanks to the Mccanns,.... family and friends were telling the story as though they themselves had witnessed the event. 

The press were reporting a BREAK-IN and the abduction of three year old Madeleine Mccann. On being made an ARGUIDO Gerry was questioned about the cots, this is what he had to say. 

When questioned, he said that on the day they arrived, April 28, they removed two cribs that were in their room, and placed them in Madeleine's room. He is unable to confirm, but it could be possible, that there were 3 cribs, and they asked them to remove one. It is not true that on a certain day they placed one crib in their room, leaving the other in Madeleine's room.


This is from Kate Healys Police statement May 4th, 2007....the day after Madeleine disappeared. At this point KATE had not thought ahead about the CLEANER and her observation there were TWO COTS, but in seperate rooms.. 

KATE SAID. The apartment has two beds in one bedroom, and two in another where there are also two cots on loan from the Ocean Club. The interviewee and her husband sleep in one bedroom and the three children in the other. The twins sleep in cots, Madeleine in a normal bed, the other bed staying empty.


NOTICE: Kate does not mention a third cot.... Maria Julia de Silva has already confirmed Saturday 28th April, ONLY TWO COTS arrived at apartment 5A. Maria also confirms the TWO COTS May 2nd ,were in separate rooms. 

Maria had by May 2007 worked for ‘The Ocean Club’ for thirteen years. A trusted employee who had no reason to lie, had she Dr. McCann?


  1. Good post Ironside and well thought out as usual.

    Those photographs of Madeleine ready to hand to the PJ have always bothered me. Who would have postcard sized photos immediately available, they wouldn't, unless Madeleine died days earlier and the abduction plan was subsequently hatched.

  2. About the postcard sized photos:

    The PJ established those could not have been made that night and inside the Ocean Club's facilities. They established there was no equipment there that could have produced such quality of photos, in thick glossy photo paper.

  3. And so it builds - this is good Textusa and thank you to Ironside for putting up your posts.

    I am amazed that this information by a credible witness, Maria Julia de Silva and by Tavares De Almedeida cannot bring about the downfall of the McCanns - even if it is only to bring them to Portugal and to Court to explain for all to hear - What happened to Madeleine ?

    How can they, the McCanns, ever show their faces anywhere - I have seen on a site the pictures of the two cots, it may have been yours Textusa, I have been to so many today. The cots were squashed into the one room barring access - I have seen it.

    I still think that even though you have shown through your posts that the McCanns are lying and covering up - we have no factual, existing evidence - it's almost as though they have a protective shield - each time you and others come up with irrefutable facts they seem to shatter into a thousand pieces just by GM saying " there is no evidence" - they must be being protected from being hounded out of England by someone soooo powerful that not even the people of both Portugal and England can shake their defence.

    I think I know who it is but I shall refrain from mentioning it - and I think you probably know too!

    But don't say those words please, Textusa and Ironside, I have a feeling that your site would suddenly disappear if those words were uttered and I couldn't bear that. Not now I have found your site.

    This is awesome Textusa - thank you again and thank you Ironside - you make a very good babysitter!

    Oh, sweet Justice can't come soon enough for Madeleine.


  4. She remembers Gerry gave the Commandant several photographs of the missing girl.

    They were postcard-like pictures, taking into account their size and shape and seemed all the same to her.

    (ODD they were so quick to have Madeleines photographs ready to give to the police when thoughts were still the child could have wandered off, it would appear abduction had been decided before the police had even arrived)

    ODD? This is the Gerrymeister we are talking about here. Everything worked out beforehand...
