Meanwhile, Leicestershire Police continue to encourage members of the public to donate to the McCanns Fraudulent Fund, even after they were declared official suspects when evidence suggested that Madeleine had not been abducted but had died in their holiday apartment and her body was concealed.

The McCann Million Dollar Challenge
contact the police

The Leicestershire police force in England should be made aware of the statement by the McCanns. Time is of the essence as all the time spent looking for a man with no connection to the case falsely labeled as the "probable" abductor, more time is wasted that could be used to find the very people who were involved in what really happened to Madeleine.

We must exert increasing pressure to correct any false statements that could divert from finding out what really happened. The Leicestershire Police Force endorse the McCann website by linking it to their website. They need to be held to account and questions need to be asked of them.

1/ Do the Leicestershire police agree with the McCann website that a man seen by a Mrs. G. Cooper probably abducted Madeleine?

2/ Is there any information that any particular man was "Madeleine's probable abductor?"

3/ If so, why has this information never been released to the public?

4/ If not, how can they be helping the search for Madeleine by referring the public to a dishonest website that makes that claim?

5/ Are the Leicestershire police going to continue to aid a deception or are they either going to remove the website link or insist the McCanns remove the false statement?

Please help get the answers we need by contacting the Leicestershire police:
