What WAS or maybe still is the 'Wider Agenda' ? Listening to Clarence Mitchells slip-up today I am sure Madeleines 'recovery' is still very much on the AGENDA. The McCanns need to now more than ever turn public opinion, the book will be a flop which is why Mitchell has used the death of Jo Yeates as leverage to gain a little publicity for the deceitful duo.. A funeral and as Mitchell stumbled on today her 'recovery' has yet to happen. Hewlett was to be the fall guy and although the NEW British Goverment do not support the McCanns they must remain silent to protect Her Majesty's Empire. Had Brown remained in power Madeleine would now be at rest of that I have no doubt. Something was going on and I believe the USA through Ed Smart /John Walsh were heavily involved ...WIKILEAKS have shown there was a connection through their cables that the McCanns were quick to jump all over, why else would Madeleine's 'abduction be discussed with America ? a few articles from the past when ALL seemed to be going to plan. I apologise ahead if some links no longer function. Gerry McCann I believe was to be Europes John Walsh / Ed Smart either way there was an 'AGENDA' and it circled around paedophiles.'.The McCanns obssession'.However, if you notice the McCanns are no longer interested in Amber Alert and missing children, their only interest is saving their backsides and getting their hands on those 'secret' PJ files.

EU marking Missing Children's Day

John McCann said the family would not stop until Madeleine was found .

Parents of children who have disappeared, including those of Madeleine McCann, 4, are marking the EU's Missing Children's Day.

John McCann, Madeleine's uncle, on a visit to UK charity Missing People, urged families in a similar position to remain hopeful.

The key was to realise that there was a channel of support, said Mr McCann.

The charity said that since Madeleine's abduction on 3 May there had been 1,200 reports of missing young people.

Yellow ribbons

The aim of the day, instigated by the European Union, is to support parents like the McCanns.

In the UK, Missing People, previously known as the National Missing Persons Helpline, chose the day to relaunch under its new name and logo.

It also announced what it said was the first UK direct mailing appeal to help find missing children.

And the charity launched an official yellow Missing People ribbon to symbolise support for all missing people.

People have been urged to wear yellow ribbons to mark their support for the McCanns since Madeleine was snatched from their holiday apartment in Praia Da Luz.

Madeleine's picture was projected on to Marble Arch in central London

John McCann visited the charity's offices in London to highlight its work and to offer support to other families whose children had disappeared.

He said: "I'm sure that you all can relate to the horrible feeling in the pit of your stomach and the complete turmoil that hits us.

"The initial waves of sickness and mental upset was completely overwhelming. None of us was able to think clearly." He added: "For all families that are coping with a disappearance, your pain will be like ours and some of them will have carried it for longer than we have.

"What I want to do is show that you can remain hopeful. The key part is realising that there is a channel of support and that is where the charity Missing People comes in."

Mr McCann said the family was in it for the long haul and would not stop until Madeleine was found.
Missing People is appealing for help finding Carmel Fenech, 16

Forget-Me-Not flowers

He joined Paul Tuohy, chief executive of Missing People, as he re-launched the charity.

"We are re-launching at a peculiarly ironic time - when the level of interest in missing people has perhaps never been higher, when 'missing' as a social issue is on the lips of politicians, radio and TV presenters, newspaper editors, and men, women and young people the length and breadth of the country."

Mr Tuohy also announced a direct mailing appeal for a missing child, which will be delivered to half a million homes on Friday.

It carries an appeal for a girl named Carmel Fenech who was 16 when she disappeared from Crawley, West Sussex, on May 23, 1998.

According to Home Office estimates, 210,000 people are reported missing each year in the UK, around two-thirds of whom are under the age of 18.

The EU Justice Commissioner marked the day with a plea not to forget the McCanns' plight.

Franco Frattini said: "The public support shown throughout Europe to the parents of Madeleine McCann has illustrated European citizens' solidarity with the families of missing children and the importance they attach to ensuring a safe and secure environment for our children."

All EU staff in Brussels were urged to wear forget-me-not (myosotis) flowers in support of the European Federation for Missing and Sexually Exploited Children, the organisers of the event.


This coincidence enabled Freemasons to wear the forget-me-not badge as a secret sign of membership.

It is late Sunday night, and in the kitchen of a large house in the Jordanhill area of Glasgow John McCann, uncle of the abducted four-year-old Madeleine McCann, is brainstorming with Andrew and Jill Renwick and Paul Macintyre, medical friends of Madeleines parents, Gerry and Kate.

They talk of getting bookmarks with Madeleines picture inserted into every copy of the final Harry Potter book this summer. They are enlisting the help of the actors Ewan McGregor and Daniel Craig and the director Stephen Frears at the Cannes Film Festival. They want to highlight Madeleines plight at the Tour de France, at the summers international golf tournaments, and at next weekends grand prix in Monaco where the Spyker team has agreed to put posters on its cars.

They want appeals for information screened in cinemas across Europe, and Mrs Renwick suggests asking the cartoon channel Nickelodeon to broadcast Madeleines pictureIt all sounds hugely ambitious, but in the 18 days since Madeleines abduction the McCann family and their friends have shown that little is beyond them

Resourceful, tireless and determined, they have mounted a DIY campaign to find Madeleine unprecedented in its scale and scope. They have made MadeleineÃs face ubiquitous. They have turned her into one of the few people known internationally by a single name.

The website went live last Tuesday. A chain e-mail begun by Philomena McCann, an Ullapool teacher who is Madeleines aunt, has carried her picture into tens of millions of homes worldwide. The campaign has attracted offers of more than £2.5 million in rewards from the likes of J. K. Rowling, Sir Richard Branson, Sir Philip Green and the Scottish tycoon Stephen Winyard. More than 50,000 people have sent messages of support, and John McCann expects the campaign to have raised more than £1 million by the weeks end. The campaign had an appeal broadcast on Wembleys giant screens at last Saturdays FA Cup final reaching a potential audience of 500 million in 160 countries, and at the Uefa Cup final in Glasgow between the Spanish teams Espanyol and Sevilla. It has enlisted the help of Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham and John Terry, and of Liverpoo players before tomorrow European Champions League final.

England cricketers wore yellow ribbons at Lords. The racing drivers Jenson Button and David Coulthard have put Madeleines pictures on their websites. BP, Exxon, McDonalds and other retail chains such as Carrefour have agreed to display posters at thousands of outlets across Europe.

Gordon Brown has pledged his support. Last Friday John McCann was dining with friends when Downing Street called to say that the Chancellor was on the line. Minutes later Mr McCanns mobile on which he takes hundreds of calls daily ran out of power, cutting off Britains next Prime Minister in mid-sentence. Yesterday morning, as Mr McCann was talking to The Times, his mobile rang again. It was Revenue & Customs, calling at Mr Brown request to discuss how the fund could gain charitable status.
As John McCann points out, it is not bad for a“bunch of amateurs''. The campaign has now employed professional media and legal advisers, and will shortly take on a manager and financial administrator, but it has for the most part been inspired and run by Madeleine’s parents and a small circle of relatives and friends several of them medical colleagues of the McCanns – using every contact they can muster.

Their link to the football world was Stuart Hillis, a Glasgow cardiologist who worked with Scotland's football team and knew Sir Alex Ferguson. A Leicester cardiologist and rugby fan roped in Martin Johnson. A former pupil of Philomena McCann set up the website. An Aberdeen GP enlisted the oil companies through executives he knows.

When Gerry McCann promised to leave “no stone unturned'' in his hunt for his daughter, he meant it. His doctor friends have mobilised medical associations throughout Europe, and are doing the same with other professional organisations representing lawyers, dentists, accountants, ophthalmologists and the like. Appeals for Madeleine are now available on the internet in 16 languages. The campaign is about to distribute 1.2 million leaflets at London three main airports.

Everyone wants to help. Lorry drivers supplying Glasgow fruit market are dropping off posters at all the cafes and petrol stations on their routes across Europe. Travel agents send out pictures with customers tickets.

The campaign has two nerve centres. One is in Praia da Luz. The other is the Glasgow sitting room of John McCann, 48, who is on indefinite leave from his job as a medical rep for the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca. There he fields endless e-mails and telephone calls. Arguably the campaign has been almost too successful. The Portuguese police may be so overwhelmed with tips that the critical one will be overlooked. I a bit scared that something will get swamped, John McCann says.

We would run to the ends of the earth to the ends of the earth if that would bring back Maddie to our pal Gerry


IT was 81 days, an ocean and continent away from the place where his daughter was abducted but Gerry McCann found a strange reassurance here yesterday.

The consultant cardiologist began a three-day trip to America by visiting a state-of-the-art support centre, set up to help parents find their missing children.

The International Centre For Missing And Exploited Children lies in the dormitory town of Alexandria, a 20-minute drive from downtown Washington. It is a quiet place of shuttered homes and historic landmarks.

But behind the facade of the centre's 1920s building, lie pitiful, shocking stories of mass paedophilia, of children disappeared. And yet, there are also stories of patient optimism, built on so much success at recovering missing kids.

And it was the latter which seemed to give Gerry McCann refreshed hope.

He heard of girls taken as toddlers and traced after 20 years; of boys who vanished at two and discovered at 18 years old as a result of the centre's computer image-ageing techniques.
 And he heard that the vast majority are not taken to be killed.

"Myself and my wife Kate have been in contact with the centre almost since the day Madeleine was abducted," said Gerry."It's important that I came on this trip to understand better the work being carried out across the world to reduce child abductions. Of course, it helps maintain the profile of my daughter's disappearance but I hope it also draws greater public attention to what is often something which captures people's attention for only a few days."

The centre was established in 1984, following the murder of youngster Adam Walsh, who was abducted from a Florida shopping mall. After the killing, Adam's father John Walsh - who presents the TV show America's Most Wanted - vowed to do all he could to prevent another parent suffering as he had. And most recently, the Adam Walsh Child Protection And Safety Act was signed by President Bush.

It created a national database of convicted child molesters and increased penalties for sexual offences against children. But perhaps most importantly it demanded that police file reports on missing children within two hours of their disappearance.

"Before then the presumption was always that the kid had run away and the parents were told to come back in 72 hours," the centre's chief executive Ernie Allen told Gerry.

"You could immediately enter information about stolen cars but not about stolen children - and the key moments in any abduction are the early ones."

THEN he paused. "I don't mean we haven't had success finding children months or even years later. But the message must be that police don't waste those first, precious hours.

"After all, the attempt to find a missing child is only as strong as the officer who turns up."

Gerry nodded, saying nothing. Then Mr Allen added: "But most people take kids not to kill. Of those who do, 74 per cent are murdered within three hours." Gerry looked to the floor, hands folded as if in silent prayer for his daughter, who was abducted in Portugal in May.

Later, he saw the pictures of youngsters who had been recovered. Many had been taken by an estranged parent or relative. But there were scores of kids marked "abducted by a non-family member".

Children such as Sara EghbalBrin, who disappeared in France aged three, to be discovered five years later in Canada, because of image-ageing photos and a sharp-eyed traffic cop. The centre here receives 300 calls each day - from worried parents and people with information. The centre also posts pictures of lost kids to 85million homes a week.

"As you know, Gerry," Mr Allen said, "somebody knows. Somebody can tell us what happened to your daughter. There's a somebody for every one of those missing youngsters."

He talked of a child stolen in California and found in Puerto Rico seven years later. Gerry told him: "Believe me, we've had calls from all over the world. One even came from Guatemala. And you have to take them all seriously." Mr Allen reassured him: "There's hope, real hope. Children aren't taken for murder in the vast number of cases. Children just go. They are obedient. They do what they're told."

But the global web of paedophilia highlights the risk our most vulnerable face. The centre recently exposed an internet network involving 77 countries. In the UK alone there are more than 100,000 child porn sites. As a business it is, as Gerry said: "Easy, cheap, very profitable and with little risk."
"It's the sheer scale of the problem," he added. "These are the things to take back with me to the police and child welfare agencies involved in Madeleine's case.
"This visit strengthens me and my resolve. With dedicated people like this here - people who have found 115,000 children since 1985 - there's always hope. And I'll be taking it back to Portugal."

After his visit to the centre, Gerry spent time with Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who has been at the forefront of US child protection reform.

"What I've seen on this brief visit is that they are light years ahead of Europe in uniting the strands governing how we protect kids," said Gerry."And we can certainly learn from it."
So it will soon be back to Portugal for Gerry - and more waiting and hoping.

"It has been a long time now and we just have to take each day as it comes. But Madeleine knows we love her very much and that we won't stop searching."

The early hours are crucial.. but we've also found kids after many years

In February of 2004, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) in the person of Peter Banks, Director of Outreach and Training, first appeared before the Conference of Grand Masters gathered in Washington D.C., giving a heart-felt presentation that asked all in attendance to consider start-up of a child identification program in their jurisdiction. This presentation led to the formation of our standing committee .... Masonic Child Identification Support Committee. Over the past three years we have laid the ground work for collaboration between our two organiztions. The NCMEC is a multi-facided non-profit organization that utilizes "Technology" as the backbone and foundation of its activities to help protect our most vunerable members of society ... CHILDREN ... and aid law enforcement in their efforts to find and prosecute those who exploit them.
