    Firstly Im delighted to see this little girl has been found safe and well, but there is something that just doesnt add up.
    I watched a CH4 programme this evening and was shocked at the amout of times some friends/family members mentioned how much money the Mc Canns had been given.
    I cant help think it was all a money scam, it was the her step fathers uncle who had her in his flat.
    Would someone make this sort of thing up to make money? There were stories from Shannons Granny, grandad and uncle how the step dad has beaten and punched the kids and it had been know he hit Shannon and her mother!
    The mind boggles

    They didnt get any money from Ch4, but I found all the comments about how well off the McCanns are and how well they look etc all a bit disturbing.
    Im sure it will be on again on 4 more

    The whole thing was strange. It’s impossible to guess how someone would react if their child was missing but there was a certain amount of playing with the media which just didn’t sit right.

    Why does no one know the details of the day she went missing either? All very bizarre! I just hope we have a few more happy endings to missing children cases.

    I really think it was done for the money, Im sure its hard for families who dont have much to look at the McCanns and think they are "doing well" out of the hunt for maddie. They hear all the 100’s and thousands or pounds given to the fund, but its not given to hte McCanns on a personal level.
    Neighbours heard the child laughing in the flat, so please God she was well looked after…. what I find strange is that the child is either still in care or the return was very low proflle
    Strange indeed

    mmmm strange one alright….have that programme recorded, saw one there a few weeks ago about 2 girls in the uk who were snatched and missing for days and days by this weirdo, the girls were devestated with what had happened to them even 10 years on, they talked about what happened and how easily it happend what was going on in their little heads at the time and how they as best friends got torn apart but reunited then a few years later after dealing with it, but such a horrible thing to happen and to think it may be money orintated it disgusting to think, how many families are genuinely missing family members and distraught and would like nothing more than the safe return of their child etc…..will watch it and see but annoyed to think there may be sickos out there….

    What shocked me about the programme was the fact that 1,500 sex offenders were living withinn a 20 mile radius of Shannons house…… but that was a young chav lad who said that, so dont know how true his statement was.

    I am in no way stickin up for anyone on sex offenders list,but i know of some1 in uk who is on it for a reason that is not wat every1 else thinks (ie a teenage girl made up story about this person & story was believed,even though girl has said it was not true 2 close friends etc)…and the numbers on the sex offenders lists in uk can be frightenin but not all r dangerous preditary sex offenders

    then again my friend in uk, her mother met a new boyfriend & he was on list for abusin young girls but noone knew!! it wasnt until her 3 yr old started sayin things that her mums boyfriend had done that they went to police & found out he had previous convictions 😯 I met him & must admit i wasnt keen on him but never knew why until this came out! wat makes me angry on this,whats the point of bein on list if close people around them dont know……just to frighten us with the numbers!!

    Did you hear the lastest about this case?
    Shannons step dad has been arrested and is in police custody for having child porn on his pc!!!!!!
    God you can never tell how your bringing into your house, Im sure her mother had no idea about this.

    The plot thickens, makes you wonder why his uncle had the child hidden in his flat…. God sick feckers

    I saw that. It sends shivers down my spine! This whole thing stinks and Iworry for those kids. I just hope they are not being used as pawns in some deranged game.

    If the mother wasn’t in on the kidnapping and didn’t know about the pictures then my heart really goes out to her. What a lot to deal with. But who knows…

    my thought was that maybe Shannon was hiding out with the Uncle due to be afraid 2 go home?but that was just a thought,i didnt feel comfortable with that step dad the way he kept stroking the mums shoulder made me shudder & that was when she was missing…i dont read papers or watch news so i am not so up on it but did see sky news yday quick…

    Have you seen that the mother has now been arrested for ‘perverting the course of justice’. It makes me just want to give those poor kids a big hug. 🙁

    Its shocking, please God it was just a money racket and nothing more synister (sp). I heard there was 130 images of child porn on his computer but none were of the step kids, thank God.
    God to think maybe thats why he hook up with the mother as she had loads of young kids 😯
