special supplement 
ith madeleine McCann stillmissing a year ater disappear-ing rom her holiday apartment,more and more books are to be publisheddetailing diferent versions o the events thathave marked the past 12 months.Several are already in the shops, writ-ten by Portuguese journalists and aormer PJ investigator.Now another ormer investigator is add-ing his name to the list o published authors- Gonçalo Amaral, who was the rst chie-in-spector to lead the Madeleine investigation. According to Gerry and Kate McCann’sspokesman Clarence Mitchell, this new book represents an attempt “to cash in onMadeleine’s dramatic story”.However, Paulo Santos, who is Gonçalo Amaral’s lawyer, said the book symbolisesthe recently retired PJ chie-inspector’s “rightto reedom o expression”.In an interview in the Portuguese daily newspaper
Correio da Manhã
, on Monday,the lawyer said this was his way “o deend-ing himsel rom the campaigns he has beentargeted with”, which is “something he couldnot do beore”.Meanwhile, newspapers in the UK havereported that Gerry and Kate McCann arepreparing their own version o the eventsthat marked the night o May 3 2007, in Praiada Luz.Te inormation orms part o a docu-mentary which was due to be shown on
 on Wednesday (April 30) to highlight theevents o the last year in the McCanns’ am-ily lie.Te programme, prepared exclusively orthe rst anniversary, ocuses on the imple-mentation o an EU version o the American Amber Alert System or missing children.Clarence Mitchell said the book “will bethe amily’s story, the only o cial book. It will be a detailed account o their experi-ence, rom the pain o the night Madeleine was kidnapped, to being named as o cialsuspects in the investigation”.He added that the amily had receivednumerous ofers rom authors and publishersbut they were still in negotiations to nalisethe deal.“It is a legitimate way o raising money orthe Find Madeleine und but would also givethem a chance to put across their side o thestory, and to talk about some o the wider is-sues,” he said.omorrow (Saturday) at the PortimãoPublic Library, ormer PJ oicer PauloPereira Cristóvão and Portuguese jour-nalist Frederico Duarte Carvalho willlead a debate about the last year o theMadeleine investigation.Te debate is based on the book 
O Enigmada Praia da Luz 
, the Praia da Luz enigma, written by Carvalho and published in March.o date, this was the last book to be printedin Portugal about the Madeleine case. While many say the media coverage o the Madeleine investigation has been treat-ed as iction, there are now ears in Por-tugal that the case may be dropped by theoicial investigators.In the meantime, and one year on,there is still no news o the whereabouts o Madeleine McCann.

s the world marks the rst an-niversary o the disappear-ance o Madeleine McCann,a couple in Germany will be remem-bering their six-year old son who wentmissing in the Algarve 12 years ago.Renè Hasèe, who was six, disap-peared rom the Amoreira beach near Aljezur on June 19, 1996.His mother, Anita, a 37-year oldpostal worker who was on holiday withher partner Peter and René, told a Ger-man newspaper at the time: “We had just eaten something and gone downto the beach.” It was around 6pm andshe said René was around 30 metresin ront o her when
suddenly our sondisappeared as i he had been swal-lowed by the earth.
She immediately notiied the localpolice, who, she claimed at the time, were not very interested and did notbother to search or René, telling her hehad probably drowned.However, this recollection o eventsis not shared by a GNR agent
who is still working at the Aljezur GNR branch. Hetold
he Resident 
that he remembers o-icers spending “day ater day searchingthe beach or the child”. As with any other missing childrencases, the le on Renè was sent to thePolícia Judiciária, said a GNR spokes-man. But the Lisbon headquarters o the criminal police have no record o Renè Hasèe.“he missing people’s database indigital ormat goes back to 1996,”, said thespokesman. “he name is not registeredon the computer database and we havenot ound it in the paper entries.”However, the spokesman saidthis does not mean the case is closed.“Sometimes, a case has to wait years un-til new inormation is ound in connec-tion to it and it is possible this is one o those cases,” said the spokesman.Te disappearance received nopublicity in the Algarve and only limited media coverage at homein Germany.But, as the world ocuses onMadeleine McCann, we should alsospare a thought or one German cou-ple who even now, 12 years on, havenot given up hope o nding their son.
