The search was called off early afternoon, with no sign of the child, the family were being questioned , and there has been no more news on this case since this afternoon.
The police believe the parents of baby Daniel are the prime suspects now. There were 8 people at the house when Daniel was reported missing, including the mothers aunt, neighbours and cousins, and all have been questioned by the police. Click Here
I find it hard that this baby has been missing for over 48 hours now, and there seems to be not much news and not much happening, no clues to his whereabouts or anything.
I know these cases often end with a family connection, but I find that a bit hard to believe in Madeira, and I guess with this not happening before, and very low crime on the island, the police really don’t know how to handle the situation, but I think the ports and airport should have been put on lock down straight away.
Lets hope and pray there is still a chance for this to have a happy out come, but with the hours passing its not looking good.
It is plane to see there is no way this 18 month old child could not have traveled 2 miles away from where he went missing, and survived almost 3 days in the cold and wet, and not have any scratches or bruises from falling over, lets hope they find the person/s who took him, my guess is it’s going to be family related.
