Heartbreak for McCanns as girl in photo is revealed as farmer's daughter
Yesterday another British holidaymaker came forward saying she had seen her in the Cafe des Epices in Marrakesh on May 11. Jeannie Thompson saw a little blonde girl looking "dishevelled" with a man who was taking photographs of her. Mrs Thompson, 56, a mother of one from Devon, thought immediately that something was wrong, but only reported it two weeks later when she was back in Britain.
"I was with a friend," she said. "The girl looked stunned, really shell-shocked. "We didn't know then about the Madeleine case, but we were both really struck by how this girl looked." The pair contacted Leicestershire Police when they heard about another possible sighting in Marrakesh and police took statements from Mrs Thompson in July but she has heard nothing since
