It was said that the couple spoke English and were staying at the Cabreira camping site, Entre Rios, Vieira do Minho and were not accompanied by any child.
It was decided, upon superior order by the undersigned officer, to go the camping site in question, with the aim of obtaining elements to confirm whether the couple was accompanied by any child with the characteristics of the missing girl, Madeleine McCann.
