Madeleine – 74,000 calls/texts – Gerry McCann

Page 18

Gerald McCann has in common with Kate two numbers: 447950xxxx10 and 44777xxxx29. These numbers do not turn on any antenna in the zone of Praia da Luz.

Of the group, Gerald only keeps contacts with his wife, Kate.

Before the disappearance of his daughter, he receives 14 messages from the number 447818xxxx47, on day 2. The first was received by 08:07:12 hours, and the last by 19:49:34 hours. In between he still connects to 91121 (message centre). The last contact, before occurs the alert of the disappearance of Maddie, was received by 12:24:40 hours that day, lasting 12 seconds, originating in the number 447980xxxx46. This number does not trigger any studied antenna, or return to arise in a new contact record.

After being given the alert, Gerald McCann has traffic increased quite markedly, contacting and being contacted by national and foreign numbers. Some of these national numbers activate studied antennas, so we assume that it is related numbers (mobile) of people who would walk to assist in the searches.

The first contacts recorded soon after the event, are exchanged with Kate, at 23:14:49 and 23:17:04 hours.

After these contacts, he makes a voice call to the number 9101389xxxx74, at 23:40:00 hours, lasting 11 minutes and 13 seconds, immediately afterwards to the number 9101162xxxx61, at 23:52:18, with a duration of 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

Between 01:43:55 hours and 04:14:44 hours, either he is not in the zone of the antennas, or he fails to receive contacts, that return between 04:20:34 hours and 07:06:06 hours.

Early in the morning of day 4, at 09:14:28 hours, he was in touch the British Consulate in Portimão, having been achieved by the number 9107749000000.

All the “foreign” numbers with whom Gerald exchanged messages or dialogues, none activated antennas that serve Praia da Luz. There exists however the number 447785xxx05, that must deal as a message centre, due to the type of accesses, for not to activate any antenna, as already we refer, receiving several other contacts (SMS type) of foreign numbers. None of these numbers has relations with Gerald McCann.

One of the contacts of Madeleine’s father is the number 441162xxxx61, a voice call made by Gerald, at 00:45:15 hours, day 4, with a duration of 1 minute and 18 seconds. This number does not enable any antenna, however this number receives two contacts from number 447967xxxx78, which activates Optimus antennas for the first time at 19:43:42 hours, day 4.

He receives three calls from an unidentified number, at 09:05:38, 09:41: 52 and 10:11:21 hours.

In Table 9 are the records of the communications of Gerald McCann.

These phone calls/texts have probably been analysed to death. I want to leave an analysis until I have translated all the relevant parts of the document. For the moment, I cannot find 9107749000000. The entry at 09:14:28 on 4 May is a shown as a call from 282xxxx55. Area code 282 is Portimão, so it is possibly associated with the British Consulate in Portimão, though it is not on their list of contact numbers, and it does not appear to show up in current White or Yellow pages.

Equally, I am at a loss as to why a 12 second call in to Gerald is described as not triggering any of the Luz antennas. Perhaps it was meant as this was the only contact with that number in the period studied.}
