The son of a suspect has spoken out.

There been a development in the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann after the son of one of the main suspects spoke out yesterday.

Wayne Hewlett says he suspects the police have been watching him and his family after naming his father as a key suspect in the case.

Wayne’s father Raymond was a convicted peadophile who was living just one hour from where the McCanns were staying when Madeleine went missing.

“My partner and I thought someone might be watching the house. We would notice a car with somebody in it parked so they could see in,” he told The Sun.

“If it’s connected to Madeleine it’s the biggest waste of money I’ve heard of. What did they hope to find? I told detectives all I knew years ago.”

Raymond has since died of cancer, but on his death bed he told his son he believed Madeleine had been “stolen to order” by a gang based in Belgium.

Wayne says he told police about the confession from his father, which is one of the reasons they are holding out hope she could still be alive.

While Wayne himself is not a suspect, police have reportedly been watching him to see if child traffickers are in contact with him and his family.

“Hewlett had claimed traffickers took Maddie and the surveillance operation was to see if any of the ring were in contact with members of his family. If she was taken then there is always the possibility she could still be alive,” a source told The Sun.

It’s the theory that Madeleine was taken by traffickers that has police and Maddie’s parents hoping she is still alive.

Police say they have new leads with child trafficking groups in Europe and just last week received $160,000 to boost the investigation.

The story of Madeleine’s disappearance has captivated the world with millions of parents sympathising with the McCanns.

It’s difficult to imagine how anyone could handle something like this happening to their child or grandchild. The McCanns say the overwhelming public support has helped them get through the ordeal.

Have you been following the McCann’s story since the beginning? Has it made you more wary about the safety of your grandkids?

    Any family left not knowing with no closure would suffer so much. Just closure one way or the other would be so much better feel for them.

    Interesting story but I found the typing mistakes distracting. I think you guys should actually read these stories with your own eyes…..always seem to be typing mistakes that the spell checkers don’t pick up. Like ‘he police’ instead of ‘the police’ and ‘is child’ instead of ‘if child’. I wouldn’t bother to bring it to your attention but this happens quite often with the ‘Starts at 60’ articles.

      I agree – quite sloppy editing. The first sentence also has a very obvious error.

    • Joy Anne Bourke  

      Jean, how many spelling mistakes do you think there is, I am an excellent reader and there is only one error that I can find and that did not bother me one little bit. Stop whinging, they are very minor and easy to read around them..
      Don’t bother reading at all if you can’t stand the little mistakes here and there.

          Ha Ha, don’t you mean THUMBS? If that was deliberate you have a very quirky & subtle sense of humor!

      They also wrote “there been” under the photo of Maddie. I have often noted and commented on the poor proof reading on this site.

      get over it…spelling is nothing these days…more to worry about than spelling….

      Omg I can’t believe that that is, the most important information you got out if this article. There are many who would be blessed if that was the worst thing I their day. Hope my spelling is ok If not bad ” B ” luck.

    My heart goes out to this couple on the loss of their beautiful daughter. God give them comfort.

    I think it is absurd for the police to spend so much money on one case. How can they justify it when there are hundreds of family’s out there who are not receiving the same treatment. Is that fare. The investigation needs to be closed, it has been years.

    • Rozanne Roux  

      The mccanns hid maddies body. They should instead look for her body near the resort, instead of searching the whole world.

    The that the McCain’s have told as well as the stories that their friends that were also vacationing there also conflict. There are transcripts available online of the various interviews. It’s all very suspicious.

    Why is the connection to the Podesta Bros. and Clement Freud’s villa in Portugal.

    Why is the connection to the Podesta Bros and Clement Freud’s villa in Portugal not being investigated?

    It would be a whole lot better for the promotion of getting older, if the people writing and responding to articles checked their own spelling and typos etc… As for the McCanns, they have nothing to do with the disappearance of their daughter, and only infantile people with nothing better to do with their lives could believe all the ludicrous conspiracy theories that state the McCanns were involved. That people on a site promoted for those aged 60 plus believe such nonsense is a sad indication of the level of ignorance that fake news promotes.
