The disappearance of Madeleine McCann remains internationally relevant even though it's been the better part of a decade since she vanished. Over the course of the past few years it seems like every single person that can be accused of kidnapping her, has been accused of kidnapping her -- even though Portuguese officials made it clear in the very beginning where evidence pointed to in this case. As of March 21, 2013 there are new accusations rising against a cleaning crew who were around The Algarve vacation resort when Maddie vanished. Will these accusations lead to finality in this epic case or will this "lead" dry out like every single other one so far?
The British cleaning crew reportedly had use of a white van around the time of the child's disappearance, and is believed to had been cleaning apartments at the time. Detectives want to find these cleaners and question them in order to find out whether or not they saw or heard anything -- or if they themselves kidnapped little Maddie. This comes in the middle of bizarre allegations that a child kidnapping ring has operated in Portugal and other parts of Europe with "abducted to order" children for pedophiles or whoever else wants to illegally obtain a child.
Even after six years and no proof of an actual kidnapping, the parents of Madeleine McCann have never faced charges for the blatant child neglect that took place the night she vanished. Kate and Gerry McCann left the toddler alone with her two younger siblings -- to sleep unattended in a rental apartment -- while they drank with friends at a bar area over 130 yards away. Had they not made this mistake it's likely that little Maddie would still be here today instead of missing -- presumed dead if you read the evidence here. It's a shame to see such poor parenting go unpunished, even in the face of a missing or murdered child. At the very least it seems that the justice system in either Portugal or the UK would make an example of the McCanns to educate other parents in similar events. While Maddie remains missing and multiple people accused of being responsible, it appears that some very important elements of the case are being ignored.
Is it likely that the cleaning crew kidnapped Madeleine McCann? Sure it is, but if they did why not abducted her two younger siblings as well? Why abducted a single toddler and leave behind two similarly aged children? This doesn't fit with the behavior of kidnappers who have the perfect opportunity and environment to pull off such an abduction. Is it likely that Maddie wandered out of the apartment while her parents frivolously drank the night away, only to wander into the arms of a predator? Yes, that is absolutely likely, but where do we go from there? And even if that were likely, the McCann Files (shared above) clearly shares the evidence that there is no sign of Maddie leaving the apartment, nor were there ever any signs of forced entry. So this case may just forever remain a mystery.
