Portuguese police called two hours after Madeleine disappeared

McCann family, with the help of friends and staff members searched the surrounding area, first, and only at 23:50 pm called the police. Today's edition of Diário de Notícias quotes several unidentified staff members of the resort where McCann family has been, saying that Madeleine parents "never left the table to check their kids, while they were dinning". McCann couple told reporters they have been checking the children every 15/30 minutes, while having dinner. The newspaper also emphasises that PJ is now “concentrating in questioning actual and former employees of the resort and the possibility that some of them may be connected to the disappearance of the child is becoming more plausible.”
