Top Maddie cop: 'I've seen nothing to make me think Gerry and Kate McCann had something to do with daughter's disappearance'

A former senior UK cop who sent criminal profilers to investigate Madeleine McCann’s disappearance and whose final report helped trigger the UK investigation into the crime has told that despite some early questions he is now convinced Kate and Gerry are innocent of any wrong doing.


Jim Gamble, the former head of Child Exploitation and Online Protection centre (CEOP), has worked closely with Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry, ever since the couple’s three-year-old daughter suddenly went missing in Portugal in May 2007.


The arrival of specialist profilers to the coastal town of Praia da Luz on the Algarve gave British police “early exposure to the McCanns” and details of the case, Gamble told


In episode two of Maddie,’s new podcast investigating Madeleine’s disappearance, Gamble outlined the profilers’ mission, and potential crime scene scenarios his team explored.


"When the case first began to unravel … I began to simply watch the news feed and then get direct feedback from our team on the ground," Gamble said. 

"Being a police officer, I am a cynic," he said. 

"I believe that any good investigator clears the ground beneath their feet.


"So of course the first people you suspect are the parents, because they are there, they are in proximity, it is their child.


"Did I believe at the beginning that the parents could possibly have done it? Yes. As time went on, did I see evidence that supported that hypothesis? No, I did not."

Gamble said as more evidence and information from Portugal came to light his team were convinced the McCanns were not involved.


"Now that's not to say that something couldn't turn up in the future where I think: 'Oh flip, you know I was right in the beginning and I'm wrong now'. But I've seen nothing, been briefed on nothing and heard nothing that would make me think that Gerry and Kate McCann [had] something to do with their daughter's disappearance."


In episode two of Maddie, two other former law enforcement officers highlight what they claim could be possible "red flags" relating to crime scene evidence and witness accounts on the night Madeleine went missing.


In 2009, Gamble wrote an extensive report that analysed the Portuguese police search for Madeleine. His report, commissioned by former Home Secretary Alan Johnson, led to London’s Metropolitan Police launching its own investigation, Operation Grange, into the McCann's holiday to Portugal.

Gamble stepped down as head of CEOP, an agency once linked to the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency, in 2010.

Kate and Gerry McCann have steadfastly denied they were involved in the disappearance of their daughter. does not suggest they had any involvement.
