#McCann : Kate Healy Harassment Of Paul Anthony Gordon Failed - Enter Gail Cooper And Creepy Man - ORPHANAGE Was The 'Key' To Try And Link Mr. Gordon

The mother of Madeleine McCann made a desperate plea to a holidaymaker to give evidence about a man seen acting suspiciously before Madeleine appeared, it has emerged.

Details of the tearful phone call were revealed as Kate and Gerry McCann were taking their battle to force British police to release information on the three-year-old's disappearance to the High Court.

Kate McCann is said to have rung Paul Gordon in tears two weeks ago to beg him to give a statement to the private investigators she and husband Gerry hired to hunt for their daughter.

Mr Gordon, 34, who rented the same apartment in Praia da Luz as the McCanns a week earlier, confronted a stranger outside the flat who claimed to be a charity collector.

He gave a statement to police at the time and a photofit image compiled from his description of the man was created, but the picture was never released.

Mrs McCann allegedly wanted him to supply a fresh statement and photofit to private investigators searching for Madeleine but her request was apparently turned down.

A police source said Mr Gordon, from Fareham, Hampshire, had turned down the plea because he had already given a statement about the prowler to Leicestershire Police.

The source said Mrs McCann was 'apparently in tears during the whole conversation'.

His evidence is part of the details the McCanns hope Leicestershire Police will be forced to release by the High Court.

Carefree: Madeleine riding her bike last spring. Her parents want British police to release documents about the investigation into her disappearance

The couple, who are both 40, are not expected to attend today's hearing in London before Mrs Justice Hogg.

It is thought they and their twins, Sean and Amelie, have gone on holiday for the first time since Madeleine disappeared.

The hearing is scheduled to take place in the High Court's family division, although it will be held in open court.

Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns' spokesman, said: 'Kate and Gerry have made an application for the disclosure of certain documents relating to the case.

'It's clearly a matter for Mrs Justice Hogg to assess and decide, but we hope a decision will become clear during the hearing.'

Madeleine, then just three, vanished from the family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on May 3 last year.

Can you Imagine that phone call ? :pale:

Kate must feel like she is banging her head against a brick wall :(

Why couldn't Mr Gordon give the team of investigators this Important Information again ?

We Wish You all the Best today Kate & Gerry ~ Who is Really Pulling the Stings here ?

NOTE: We all know how this little stunt ended, the McCanns were given some crumbs but the report read..While either one or both MAY be innocent, there is NOTHING to prove the McCanns are NOT involved in the disappearance of their daughter...SOURCE 'madeleine'
