For The First Time, Nanny Speaks Out In Madeleine McCann Case

In 2007, three-year-old Madeleine McCann went missing when she was on vacation with her family in Praia da Luz, Portugal. Her parents were having dinner at a nearby restaurant while she was asleep at the hotel with her two-year-old twin siblings. Her parents were checking on the children constantly until around 9 pm, when they noticed their three-year-old was not in her bed.

Her parent, Gerry and Kate have been looking for their daughter for a decade. The whole world has been watching the family and praying with them. Her mother, Kate, still believes her daughter is alive. However, for the first time, an employee of the hotel in Portugal has come forward.

She said she was Madeline's nanny. She spoke to the Mirror to try to dispel any speculation that her parents had something to do with their daughter's disappearance. However, she added the area the hotel in was incredibly unsafe and even all nannies carried rape whistles.

She said the little girl would stay in her heart forever. "[Kate] was pacing up and down. The worst possible thing had just happened to her. [...] She was crying, but almost in a catatonic state, and Gerry was very distressed. That's the one thing I really remember from him, looking under the cars. I can't forget that."

She added the police did not seriously handle the case, “I think a lot of things should've happened differently. ­Unfortunately the effects were catastrophic. I hope she is still alive. It's probably very naive, but the best case scenario of a very horrible situation, is that she was procured and taken for a rich person who didn't have children." However, she also believes the only person that really knows what happened is the young girl herself.

Over the last 5 years, 16 million dollars have been spent to find her. The case only has four officers assigned to it instead of the initial 30. The case only has enough money to continue through September 2017.
