Day 148 – 28/09/2007 – Friday

It has been another busy week for Kate and I. Sean and Amelie have settled back into nursery, almost as if they have never been away.

It is just over 2 weeks since we returned home from Portugal. The major news in that time is that we have not been charged with any offences regarding Madeleine’s disappearance.

Everyone will know that Kate attended for interview as a witness with the Portuguese police today. This is only the second time Kate has been interviewed and although it was a long day, going on past midnight, this was shorter than my second interview which lasted 13 hours!

Day 125 – 05/09/2007

We were surprised to find increased media presence in Praia da Luz again today. We were followed down to church, then to the shops and back to our accommodation which is very unusual, apart from the build up to the 100 days.

The French have recently adopted a child alert system with some early success stories. With increasing travel […]
