Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton has offered a grim warning to the parents of missing four-year-old Madeleine McCann, saying the police and public are likely to invent a conviction if answers to the case are not found soon.

In an exclusive interview with A Current Affair tonight, Ms Chamberlain-Creighton said she was glad not to be in the same shoes as Kate and Gerry McCann.

She also appealed to the public "not to run ahead" and judge the couple.

"The public want answers, and if they haven't got them they are going to invent them. And the police are under pressure and have been trained to find answers," Ms Chamberlain tellsACA.


"I certainly wouldn't want to go through it again and be in their shoes. There's nothing you can do, but I think as the public, we want to be careful not to run ahead."

Portugese police reportedly believe Kate McCann killed her daughter accidentally and later disposed of the body with her husband's help.

The McCanns have strenuously denied any involvement in their daughter's disappearance.

Ms Chamberlain-Creighton said the McCann case reminded her of her ordeal in the media and courts during the 1980s, after her daughter Azaria was taken by a dingo.

Azaria's body was never found. Ms Chamberlain-Creighton was convicted of her murder in 1982, but was exonerated six years later.

"It's certainly looking like its having far more echoes of mine than I would wish on anybody," she said.

"Answers are going to come from somewhere or another whether it is the right answer is a very worrying problem."

"We've had a number of months now where we have had no answers. It's time we did because we want to solve this episode and you can be guaranteed that there is nobody who wants those answers more than [Madeleine's] parents do."

Ms Chamberlain-Creighton's own conviction was overturned after new evidence showed "blood" found in the family's car after Azaria disappeared, could actually have been motor oil.

But she has warned Madeleine's parents that there is no easy way to handle the pressure of being under public and police scrutiny.

"There is no textbook to say, 'this is how you handle it, this is what happens next, this is the way you can go through it'. It doesn't happen."

"All you you can hope for is that you learn to swim, and you don't get too many deadly gulps of water while you are doing it."

Ms Chamberlain-Creighton said the media could turn out to be the McCann's only ally.

"If (Madeline) is not dead already, then their only friend is the media keeping up the pressure on whoever has got her, so that they're too afraid to do anything and hopefully, she will be found," she said.
