Have you seen these people? Do you know who they might be?

These two pictures show a man carrying a child away from the family's apartment. This sighting was seen by a witness at 21:15 on the evening of Thursday, May 3rd, 2007.

Based or more recent information, the Metropolitan Police now believe this man may represent a guest at the Ocean Club who was carrying his daughter back to their apartment. However as it is not possible to be certain that these two men are actually the same person, if you have seen this man in the pictures or suspect who it may be, please contact the Metropolitan Police's OPERATION GRANGE on 0207 321 9251 (0044 207 321 9251 from outside the UK) or

Statement 2 - Paragraph 2

Based on more recent information, the Metropolitan Police now believe this man may represent a guest at the Ocean Club who was carrying his daughter back to their apartment.  However as it is not possible to be certain that these two men are actually the same person, if you have seen this man in the pictures or suspect who it may be, please contact....'

Let us deal firstly with the
'MAY' part of this statement.  I did address this in blogs, back in 2013, most others blogging about this case did likewise.

REDWOOD - Now he did say, as I pointed out in a blog back then, that he was ONLY ALMOST certain that this guy who Tanner claimed to have seen was this British dad carrying his own child back to his own apartment (it was pointed out too, by many, that this guy was wandering way off track if he was on his way back to his own apartment, amongst other things)

Redwood was very careful NOT to say with any certainty, absolutely that this British dad was the person who Jane Tanner claimed to have seen.

IN FACT, Redwood stated that it was the
British dad/family, who said to Redwood/Metropolitan Police, that they thought the dad might be the person who Jane Tanner claimed to have seen.

So what EXACTLY did Redwood say about this British man/Jane Tanner sighting?

Crimewatch 2013

"One particular family gave us information which was really interesting, and exciting, in fact I would say it was a revelation moment, when having discussed with them what they were doing on the night, they themselves believed, they could be the Tanner sighting..."

Crimewatch Interviewer:

So what you are saying is that the timeline that everyone was working on, for years in this case, was wrong?


We're almost certain now that this sighting is not the abductor, but very importantly, what it says is that from 9.15 we are able to allow the clock to continue to move forward and in doing so, things that have not been quite as significant or received quite the same degree of attention are now the centre of our focus.


So what became the centre of Redwood's focus (Smith sighting) did NOT become the centre of the McCann focus, that is very clear from the statement on the McCann website!

But what is also very clear is that Redwood was
not accepting responsibility, not taking ownership, as to why, based only on an ALMOST or a MAY, that he changed an entire timeline of events of the evening Madeleine was reported as missing!

Surely, before any police authority act in this way,
changing the direction, focus, of not only an investigation, but the timeline of events, the movements of the main players, the main witnesses, those responsible for the missing child - in this case the McCanns and their buddies - that that police authority must be ABSOLUTELY SURE, BEYOND ANY DOUBT, THAT THE PERSON THEY ARE CLAIMING (IN THIS INSTANCE, THE BRITISH DAD) WAS AND IS THE PERSON SEEN BY JANE TANNER?

Nothing less in the case of the mysterious disappearance/death of a little three year old child is acceptable!

But the Metropolitan Police, Andy Redwood, based on an
ALMOST CERTAIN, let the clock move forward, he said, allowing the focus of his attention to drift off elsewhere - Smith Sighting!

It also allowed for Redwood the Metropolitan police to IGNORE ABSOLUTELY the events, and movements of the main players, on that night, particularly their movements and their accounts of events, as per their police witness statements in reference to the time between  9.15 PM AND 10.00 PM to be IGNORED COMPLETELY by the Metropolitan Police.

And during that period of time we had, Gerry McCann, Oldfield, Tanner, and O'Brien, not to mention Jez Wilkins all wandering around the streets, oh and Kate McCann, and of course the British dad...maybe!

Redwoods 'ALMOST'

Allowed for Gerry McCanns 'open bedroom door story' to be IGNORED.
Allowed for Oldfield's 'open bedroom door story' to be IGNORED.
Allowed for Jane Tanner to be let off the hook - IGNORED

But most of all, it allowed for the McCanns to CONTINUE on their website displaying the Tanner Sighting - it allowed BUSINESS AS USUAL!

Well, Redwood, DID NOT WITH ANY CERTAINTY, say that the British dad, now known as crechedad, WAS ABSOLUTELY, who Tanner claimed to have seen.

Now, IF for a moment we were to believe that Redwood, and the Metropolitan Police, truly believed that Smithman, the now centre of their focus was in fact the perpetrator of crimes against Madeleine, WHY NO UPDATES ON THIS?

TWO YEARS, and FOUR MONTHS, since Redwood's the unveiling of Redwood's revelation moment, and NOT a thing about this Smith sighting. The McCanns unleashed to continue with the same crap of the last almost nine years!    

The 9th anniversary of this little girls death/disappearance, what media coverage, and can clinking, already being planned by Clarence is an absolutely certainty. 

Many thought that Redwood played a blinder in debunking Tannerman (Tanner's sighting) and re-inventing him as Crechedad, that it was all part of a huge great plan- to catch a McCann!

Well it failed massively, if the Metropolitan Police are now winding things up.

I think Redwood played a blinder, but in Team McCanns favour!

McCanns must have been over the moon with the outcome of Crimewatch 2013.   They don't give a flying fig about Smithman sighting.   It wasn't Gerry McCann, so end of as far as they are concerned, and they are still free to plaster on their website - Tannerman!   Still plugging away the sighting by Jane Tanner as the abductor.

As for the Kate and Gerry McCann on Crimewatch, sitting, the E.Fits behind them, I really don't think they look at all phased by it, not frightened at all (most frightening thing about it was that yeah Kate had a super bad hair day, and that 'up do' certainly took focus from the E.Fits, left half the worlds hairdressers picking their jaws off the floor that she even entertained the idea of stepping out in that state ) but we forget, the programme took many months to put together, it is a collaboration between Team McCann and the Metropolitan Police etc.   They knew exactly what they were doing, what was to be asked of them.  If they didn't want to go along with it, they wouldn't have.  I really don't think Met pulled the wool over their eyes, though someone should have pulled a woolly hat or something over Kate's do.  And the interview with Kirsty Young, none of that was to catch the McCanns out in any way.  

This new £750K private investigation that Clarence Mitchell has declared is in pipeline (if Gerry is able to part with the cash) - Well whoever the new private detectives are they are surely gonna have to decide whose side they are on:

OR her parents and their buddies?
Daddy Gerry McCann 
OR Smithman's
Tannerman OR Crechedad's

And we will know for sure if it ever happens which side that is, as if Crechedad wins out - NO NEED for those images above to remain on the Find Madeleine Website!
