Metodo 3 or Murder Ltd ?

The Spanish detectives agency hired by the McCann told newspapers they received three calls with specific details about sightings of Madeleine in Morocco. Francisco Marco, Metodo 3's director-general, gave more specific details, including the alleged location of Madeleine, in Morocco, where she was spotted with a 60 years-old-woman: "My own feeling is that this woman is some sort of carer who is working on behalf of other people. We can't be certain it's Madeleine but several unconnected people have told our informers of the same girl with the same woman. The only difference is that she has slightly shorter hair than Madeleine had when she disappeared. Everything else matches. They've been seen over a wide area but always within the confines of the Rif mountains."

If it's truth, it raises a few interesting questions about how Metodo 3 works:

1 – This kind of information is supposed to be confidential, in order to not alert the kidnappers. Why did Metodo 3 gave that information to newspapers?
2 – Was the police in Morocco informed, through the Spanish police, as the Law in Spain requests, whenever a private detective has information related to a crime?
3 – Is Metodo 3 aware that making public this information endangers the life of a kidnapped child?
