Clarence Mitchell: "That is exactly the sort of call we want”…

The same man pictured in the new sketch released by the McCann family “had been seen in Faro several years ago”, according to witnesses that called the hotline managed by Metodo 3, the Spanish detective company hired by the couple. The spokesman for the McCann told ThisIsLondon "that is exactly the sort of call we want. We think the image is of such a quality that anyone who knows him will be able to identify him," he said. "Kate and Gerry are quite buoyant at the moment - every time we do something like this and move things forward it gives them strength."

The McCann, according to a friend quoted by ThiIsLondon, believe that “a group of two or three paedophiles may have fishing around the apartments, casing it with a view to taking children." This belief is based in another witness, Paul Gordon, who also contacted Metodo 3, but gave a description of a different man hanging round the McCann’s apartment.
