Attack to a young girl in Algarve investigated

The British press relates the case with Maddie's disappearance

A man attempted to kidnap a girl in the area of Senhora da Rocha, Algarve.
The GNR (National Republican Guard) is investigating but refuses any connection to the disappearance of the British girl

Text Carlos Tomás

A girl of 15 years old was victim of an attempt of seizure in the area of the village of Senhora da Rocha, Algarve. The girl says that in 11th of March was approached by a man that tried to put her in a jeep but she managed to escape. Her father presented a complaint in the GNR of Lagoa and the girl described the suspect as having 35 to 45 years old, around 1,80 meters high, thinning beard and long hair.
Skynews reported yesterday this case, denounced by the father's girl connecting it with the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Source of the PJ and the GNR deny any connection and talk about "diverting maneuvers of people without scruples". "The attempt of seizure of the Dutch girl if it existed has not according to the investigations made by the GNR any connection with Maddie's case. Someone is trying to throw dust to the eyes of the public opinion" said to 24 Horas a source of the Public prosecutor.
Maddie's parents don't want to connect the cases also. "The McCanns took knowledge of that case through Sky. The M├®todo 3 detectives are going to investigate to see if there is any connection but for the time being we don't see any. The circumstances are different" said to 24 Horas the spokesman of the family. According to Clarence Mitchell for now the McCanns don't want "to speak with the father of that girl".

Secrecy of justice

A GNR responsible confirmed to 24 Horas that exists a complaint concerning the supposed attempt of seizure of the Dutch girl: "The complaint was made in 11 of March by the father of the girl and the case is still in a phase of enquiry. To relate this occurrence with the disappearance of the McCanns's daughter is pure speculation". This source confirmed that the GNR was appointed by the Public Prosecutor to investigate the case and could not say any more because "everything is in secrecy of justice".
