The McCann family have hired a private detective firm to help them track down their missing daughter.

Control Risks Group is the company being brought in to help with the search, an agency which is known for its former SAS and military personnel.

The firm are specialists on kidnapping, and hostage situations.
Private Detective Firm eh? Riiight. Its the Thompson Twins as ever was. Lets hope she's not in Sierra Leone or Equatorial Guinea. Could lead to misunderstanding.

Since "The firm are specialists on kidnapping" do you suppose they could have a pop at my Mother in Law if I do the legwork.

Ah - so THAT'S where they spent Sir Richard of Branson's wedge?!

Given the number of ARRSErs with MIL problems, I reckon an easier and much much cheaper option is to set up a hidden forum to organise a multiple "Strangers On A Train" arrangement... :muhaha:

Nah, they'll be cheap as chips. A half bottle of Bourbon, a walk-up office above a dry cleaners, a gorgeous, pouting secretary, a snub nose... and you're in business.

Control Risks are up there at the top end of the market, with people like Kroll.

They aren't your divorce specialists or proving a member of your small business is fiddling your sick system.

Said to packed full of ex-sf and sis and the likes

Since when do you need the A-team to find maddie?Surely all that is required is a sniffer dog and a spade.

Current sightings in Morocco, so the chaps permatan will get topped up.

Bit of a hammer to crack a walnut however?

The CR website always makes me chuckle. CorpSpeak at its best...

Pity they werent on board from the off...

From what I've seen and read, the use of ANY kind of Detectives seems to be illegal in Portugal.

Certainly, the Portugese police don't seem to employ any... :roll:

An easy law to get around; just wait until the entire Portugese law enforcement system takes it's four hour siesta, and do any investigation then. Alternatively, wait until it's raining and all the coppers are hiding in their vans...

I'd get Blackwater to do it. It will cost loads and they ight not find her but there will be a lot less Morocans left when they are done.

Does anyone think that the next sighting of her may be on the Ski Slopes in the Alps, then a sighting on the French Riviera, and then afterwards a "concrete lead" in Florida?

Strange how none of these sightings are in shite places, this is just their way of squaring away a round the world trip.

What is the probability of the kid being found?

I do feel for her family but I also think the press have twisted things to sell papers - as usual.

No, Hoffa's dog had the concrete lead, he was given the concrete overcoat.

Speaking of coats, here's mine...

They are masters of disguise, able to blend in anywhere...
