The man psychics say killed
Now investigators working for Kate
and Gerry McCann say they want to see the so-called evidence
revealed in the programme, which was screened last week in the US
A DRAWING of a man two FBI
psychics say snatched Madeleine McCann has been produced by an
American TV programme.
The drawing is of a man aged
between 36 and 42 with thick dark brown or black hair and stubble.
It has now been handed over to police in Portugal.
It was produced by two psychic
criminal profilers who work closely with the FBI in America.
A spokesman for the McCanns said
that although they were deeply sceptical of information from
psychics, they want their private investigators to examine the
information which was broadcast.
?If they have given their files to
the police in Portugal they should also pass them on to our
investigators,? said Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns spokesman, who

Baron from TV's Haunting Evidence
The programme says the man has a pronounced accent and looks and
sounds Middle Eastern, possibly Egyptian, and drives a mid-sized
dark silver car with a parking permit or some other identifying
sticker inside the windscreen on the

a transient labourer close to the apartment in Praia da Luz on
the Algarve where Madeleine
was staying with her family before vanishing on May 3.
The report given to Portuguese police says the man is known as
Steve or Stav
and took the child to a summer rental apartment in the nearby
village of Lagos.
The team, clairvoyant Carla Baron, psychic John J Oliver and
paranormal investigator Patrick Burns spent a week in Portugal,
starting their inquiries at the Ocean club resort where the
McCann's had been staying.
Ms Baron said she immediately picked up on the vision of 'Steve'
or 'Stav' stalking the family and photographing Madeleine at the
beach before snatching her several days later.
Ms Baron said: ?He snapped off a cell phone photo while looking
like he was making a call.
?I also see him taking notes on a small notepad as he watched
the comings and goings of the McCann family to see what their
When he finally
pounced at night, while Madeleine's parents were in a nearby
restaurant, Ms Baron and Mr Oliver said the little girl did not
even wake up as he crept into the children's bedroom and picked
Mr Oliver: ?He took her to his car. There were people walking
who saw him but he just looked as if he was a father carrying a
sleeping child and they didn't take any notice.?
They say the abductor placed Madeleine in the front passenger
seat of his dark silver car, which may have had even darker or
Mr Oliver said he believes that the abductor may have stopped
briefly at a deserted farmhouse east of the town before driving
to his eventual destination ? a ?furnished room rented out
during the summer in nearby Lagos.
Executives at Tru TV, part of media tycoon Ted Turner's CNN
network, which makes the Haunting Evidence programme, passed the
apartment address to police but withheld it from transmission.
The psychics say she was murdered there by being smothered by a
pillow several days after her abduction because the man feared
he would be caught.
Ms Baron believes the man then bundled her into the boot of his
car and drove to a remote area, close to a landfill and man-made
dam, where he buried her. This location has also been passed to
