Re: Various Activities Regarding the Investigation NUIPC 201/07.0GALGS
Regarding the content of the attached email from British Authorities, with particular focus regarding the deposition by Michael Terrence Wright, in the international letter of request which is being fulfilled by the Leicestershire Police, on the 6th of May, 2007, in Praia da Luz, a pizza kitchen worker, of British nationality and originally from Liverpool, commented to that witness that her father, GEORGE, had seen a man carrying a child, in the early hours of May 4th of 2007. He does not know if GEORGE contacted the authorities about this. This testimony was realised by Inspector Joao Carlos and myself as follows:
--Yesterday, after heading toward Praia da Luz late, we located the pizzeria shop (PIZZA REAL) cited by that witness. It is situated in kiosk on Rua da Praia. Even though it was closed at the time, we obtained the telephone number ********* of said pizzeria which is open from 18H00. This same night, we contacted the manager, CAROLINE, using that telephone number and she immediately identified the employee as AMY. She told us that AMY was no longer in Portugal and that she had returned to the U.K. She was asked to contact AMY and ask her to contact this police.
--Today, at 11J37, the signatory received a telephone call from *******, from a woman who identified herself as JULIE, mother of AMY, and who told me that as soon as possible, GEORGE, her husband, and May’s father, would contact us. Around 17H16, we were contacted by GEORGE, Amy’s father, from telephone no. *********. Regarding the facts in question, he states that he had already contacted the PJ in May of 2007 and at this time relayed to the police that at around 06H00 in the morning on the 4th May, 2007, he saw a couple passing the Marina de Lagos. The man was carrying the child. It was ascertained at that time that the aforementioned situation would not be of interest to the investigation.
