British tourist tried to snatch a blonde Croatian boy they thought was Madeleine McCann

The young son of a player from Dinamo Zagreb (from Croatia) was almost snatched from her mother by a group of British tourists, who thought he was Madeleine McCann, according to the sports Spanish newspaper Marca. The blonde boy, Leone Drpic, son of Dinamo Zagreb football player Dino Drpic, two and a half years old, was with his mother in the island of Krk, when a British woman started to chat with the child.

Nives Drpic, the footballer's wife, didn't pay much attention because she is a well known fashion model and is used to having people talking and taking pictures of her and her son, anywhere they go. But then, the British woman grabbed the boy by his arm and tried to take him with her. She ran and stopped the British tourist who, after that, realised it was a mistake, and admitted the two and half years old boy was not Madeleine McCann, who was four years old when she disappeared, on May 2007.

Is the mom sure that is why the woman was REALLY trying to take him? A boy, and on top of it, 2 years old? I think that crazed woman should be investigated.

Thanks for posting this pjreis.
This news highlights the fact that Madeleine McCann has become an icon of our times-how else to explain that a two and a half year old toddler be confused with a girl who would have been five last May?

One of these days something all these histeria is going to go very wrong... some people in some places tend to carry like guns... and some of them might sue too...

Yes,the histeria is now working.

One day I asked why the "eyers/lokers" do not have remembered yet all the children.

Even boys,because we saw pictures draw with Maddie with short hair,blond and brown.

Now we have the hunting.A bad hunting;dangerous.

Even a precipitation( and finished well)from the british tourist at least someone have an action,an active action.
Not like the "others": they "saw" but they do not nothing and take a long time to say to the police; or
even no action at all.

So,is now an instability behaviour .

BUT we know who beggin this;who provoke the histeria.

Oh boy, that demented woman was very lucky to have bumped into such an understanding father. If it had happened to me, that hysterical idiot would have a harder time.

I've said this before, I have two little girls, one Madeleine's age, one shares her name, and we've had all sorts of people staring as soon as her name is mentioned. One approached her to stare in her eyes. Very scary. If someone grabbed her I'd make sure it was made known publically.

This British tourist should be arrested & questioned on suspicion of attempting to abduct the child or harassment at the very least. I hope the British police have been made fully aware of this shocking incident.

This was something that was always going to happen. It's a direct result of the constant 'Madeleine is alive and we want everybody looking for her' attitude of the parents, backed by the crazy British newspapers. They share the blame for this sort of thing, this over-attention to every little blonde child in Europe and further afield.

This nonsense about so-called sightings and the publicity given to them must stop immediately, before there is a real tragedy and someone gets hurt. No one should ever encourage other people to be constantly eying up every child they see; this is blatant encouragement to those who would snatch a child, either because they think it's Madeleine or for a much darker reason.
