Public Security Police
Sao Joao da Madeira Squad
Subject: Girl Resembling Madeleine McCann
Location of Occurrence: Public road, Sao Joao da Madeira
Name: Olga Lopes
Residence: Sao Joao da Madeira
When I was at work in the squad Olga Lopes addressed me and said that at about 13.00 at the place mentioned previously, near to her home, next to the Padaria Central, at the fountain that is there, she saw a girl who drew her attention and who was very similar and with characteristics resembling those of the missing girl from the Algarve, known as Madeleine Beth McCann.
The similarities were the following: she appeared to be 4 years old, female, she had various wound type marks on her arms and legs, her hair was blond and came down to the middle of her arms, she was wearing a red dress and white sandals.
She also had a defect in her eye like Beth.
The girl was alone and with her arms around her face, hiding from someone and when she saw the man who was looking for her she ran to the centre of the square and then to Rua do Visconde de Sao Joao da Madeira, disappearing from sight. This are is undergoing construction work and pedestrian traffic has been affected.
Upon the act of fleeing the girl’s eyes and face were very red and great fear was noted in her as she fled from the man who was chasing her.
The man was about 20-30, bald, very tall and muscular, with brown eyes and wearing a dark blue shirt.
Everything indicated that the girl was scared of the man who was running after her, without saying a word or calling her by her name, a fact which left the witness stupefied and alarmed, she couldn’t stop thinking about that act, that moment, which is why she brought it to our attention.
At the moment there are no reports of a missing girl in this city and in this squad which is why I bring this to your attention.
