May 4th and we can see how the REAL Kate Healy works, as we now know the search was called off around 4 am, but Kate tries to imply that no one searched when she and Gerry decided to take a stroll at daybreak ! Kate began to bad mouth the police and make them look inept at a very early stage in the game. No food or drinks were offered nor introductions made, where did she think she was , at a dinner party? Either way an abducted child or as I believe a dead one, this is bizarre behaviour for any mother BUT maybe normal for Kate McCann .
No sleep, Gerry and I started looking through the streets around 06.00 as it was starting to get light. Nobody around. Why not' Desperate.
Minutes seem like hours. Outside of the apartments masses of people asking questions about that night and for descriptions of Madeleine. Long day.
(Then Kate, Gerry and their seven friends were taken to the Policia Judiciaria, or PJ, headquarters in nearby Portimao to give statements.)
Nobody from the police introduced themselves. Nobody offered us a drink or food. All the police dressed informally and smoking. No sympathy was shown and far from inspiring.
I believe my statement would have been around 15.00 and such. They allowed G (Gerry) to come in with me but seated behind me. Translator present.
The police officer who took us by car to the station was the one asking the questions and afterwards typed the answers on a typewriter. Morose.
