Apenso V, Vol I
To: The Coordinator of the Criminal Investigation
From: Inspector Daniel Tavares
Subject: Information about disappearance
In inform you that today at about 10.00, Mr Izri Rabah, an Algerian citizen with residence permit nº **, a journalist, resident in Lisbon, having provided the number *+ for future contact, came to this police station to tell of a situation possibly linked to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
On 05 May 2007, between 11.15 and 12.30 when he was walking down the road near to Luis de Camoes school, Praca José Fontana in Lisbon, he passed a woman who was carrying a girl “piggy-back” style and whose features seemed similar to those of Madeleine.
He describes the girl as slim, with a very light complexion, fair shoulder-length hair (emphasising that her hair was very messy) and brown eyes. The girl was wearing a red, sleeveless, front buttoning dress. He see any rings or bracelets on the girl.
As regards the woman, she was aged 36/42, presumably from northern Europe, fair shoulder-length hair, 1.70 m, a strong physical build as if she practised sport. She was wearing jeans and a multi-colour patterned shirt, mainly red in colour.
The witness thought the girl looked sad and found it strange that she was not in a buggy. He was surprised that the woman looked away, letting her hair fall over her face when he looked at her.
He has only come to the police station now as he only found out in detail yesterday about what happened to Madeleine.
I bring this to your attention.
