Notes
Madeleine disappeared from a ground-floor hotel room at a holiday resort in Portugal. The family (Kate and Gerry McCann) was originally from the UK (Rothley, Leicestershire) and included both of her parents and twin 2-year-old siblings. The group arrived at the resort on April 28, 2007, planning to remain for a week. The rooms they selected were sub-let by another British citizen and the area had a strong expat population (especially from the UK). At 8:30pm (20:30), the McCann’s left their three children (Madeleine and the twins) asleep in their hotel room while they ate at a nearby (approximately 180ft / 55m) tapas restaurant with the other adults in the group. According to the McCann’s, they had returned to the room to look in on the children several times, but found Madeleine gone at 10:00pm (22:00). It is not clear when they had last checked on them.
