Secretary of the Madeleine Foundation, Tony Bennett, has written a 64-page booklet on the Madeleine McCann case called "What Really Happened to Madeleine McCann? - 60 Reasons Which Suggest she was not Abducted". It has sold 2,000 copies since being released in December - and has been transalted into Spanish, Dutch, German and French. Students attending the Mitchell event will be offered copies of the booklet.

Members of the Madeleine Foundation share the view of the original senior investigating officer in the case, Goncalo Amaral, that Madeleine McCann died in the McCanns' apartment in Praia da Luz and the parents, possibly helped by others, hid her body to avoid an inquest.
