Drogheda family hit out over Madeleine case clue coverage

HOMEPAGE NEWS REPORTS INDEX 100 DAYS MISSING NEWS AUGUST 2007

A DROGHEDA family who may hold vital clues as to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have hit out at media distortion of evidence that they have given to Portuguese police.

Maple Drive man Martin Smith, his wife and his children had just left the Kelly bar, which is located approximately 400 metres from the McCanns? apartment at the Ocean Club between 9.50-10pm on the night Madeleine disappeared.

They returned to Ireland the next day, and because the reported abduction times didnt originally match, they never had cause to examine their journey that night.

As it emerged that Madeleine was abducted around the same time, one of the family members had a flashback of the moment some time later and encouraged the others to jog their memory.

They remembered passing a man walking towards the beach with a child in his arms.

Other than his approximate height and the fact that he was wearing beige clothes they cannot be more specific than that. We are annoyed at how vague our description is,? said the family member.

The family contacted the Portuguese police and flew back over to give evidence.

However, contrary to media reports, Mr Smith had not seen chief suspect Robert Murat in a bar the evening that Madeleine was abducted. He definitely didn't see him on the night in question,? said a family member.

The family are also mystified at reports that he knows Mr Murat. They met once in a bar about two years ago. My dad would only know Mr Murat by sight,? said the family member. However, from what he knows, he can say that the man who was carrying the child was not Robert Murat.?
