Gerry McCann's changing routes on night Maddie vanished: does it matter?

Madeleine McCann's father, Gerry, made several small changes in two important statements he gave to police in the days after his daughter disappeared.


In episode two of Maddie, a former US Marshal who trains law enforcement officers to detect deception during interviews said the differences in Gerry McCann's two statements could be considered by police to be a potential "red flag".


The video in this article illustrates how Gerry’s accounts changed when describing the routes he said he walked to apartment 5A on May 3, the night Maddie vanished.

Mr McCann's journey to the front door is roughly twice as long as the 60 seconds it takes to walk from the Tapas bar to the sliding door at the back of apartment 5A.


During a police interview on May 4, the day after Madeleine was reported missing, Mr McCann told police he left the Tapas bar and walked to the front door of 5A.


The front door was locked, Mr McCann said, so he used his key to enter. Inside, he found Madeleine and her younger brother and sister, Sean and Amelie, asleep in their bedroom, Mr McCann told police.


Six days later, back in Portimao police station on May 10, during a longer, more intensive questioning session, Mr McCann gave a different account.


Mr McCann now told detectives he entered 5A through the sliding door at the back of the apartment, which he said was unlocked.


In this second interview, he now also told police that the front door was likely unlocked, not locked as he had first stated during questioning on May 4.


Mr McCann and his wife, Kate, have always strenuously denied any involvement in the disappearance of Madeleine. They have never been charged by police.

Jane Tanner, who was a member of the Tapas 7, told police she saw a man carrying a child away from the direction of the McCann's apartment.


If Ms Tanner had spotted an abductor, given the location of her sighting, the man would have almost certainly had to take Maddie out an unlocked front door.


Listen to episode two of Maddie to understand why Portuguese detectives harboured suspicions it was possible that someone might have faked Madeleine McCann's abduction.
