Gerry McCann sent 14 written messages on the night of May 3

The father of Madeleine McCann sent 14 written messages from a mobile phone, just before the alarm (*) about the disappearance of the child was raised, on the night of May 3, according to a special report from RTP, a Portuguese TV channel. The report also mentioned that the McCann didn't went through the check in, at Faro Airport, when they left Portugal back to England, following a formal request of the British ambassador.

The blood found in the apartment A5 was discovered after the dogs from South Yorkshire police were brought in and it was necessary that forensic experts took out part of the wodden floor to extract the samples. Other blood samples collected at the Renault Scenic had 15 detectable positive matches with Madeleine's DNA, in a total of 19 DNA-markers, referred the same report.

(*) The messages were sent during the diner, before Kate went to check the children, at 10.00pm and raised the alarm when she realised Madeleine had disappeared. Police was called almost one hour later.

Exacto. Antes do alarme ser dado, na noite em que Madeleine desapareceu, enquanto estavam a jantar...

ok... nao é por mal, mas no forum mirror, o pessoal anda com a mesma confusao que eu... o termo "alarme" faz o pessoal pensar no momento de alertar a policia...

Tem razão... Só agora reparei que isso se pode prestar a alguma confusão... Vou pormenorizar melhor...

I'm really interested in the Portuguese comments as I think they have loads of information. Unfortunately, most of us Brits only know Obrigado and Obrigada. Languages aren't taught properly in the British education system. Please translate Portuguese comments for us please. Sorry. just so we can really follow the story. Obrigado!! (:

voltei agora a ver a reportagem da RTP e a Sandra Felgueiras diz: "Neste curto periodo de tempo, Gerry terá trocado 14 mensagens escritas".

Cheating during the pub quiz?
It was Quiz Night at the Tapas Bar.
Lots of people cheat by sending text messages to theirs friends to get the answers from googling on the Internet.
Do you know what the text messages said?

The telephone company will have a record of what the text messages said. It will be the Portuguese telephone company that has these, so there is no question of waiting for the British to hand them over.

The mobile phones involved were all from UK... Does UK mobile phone companies have names, adresses and identifications from mobile numbers in Portugal?
