Actual Comment: In 2020 the case is still open. I didn't work much on the Wiki since end of 2016. Today a lot of links are broken due to the fact that a lot of Websites I refer to have given up working from frustation or pressure. I'll try to fix at least some.

What this Wiki is intended for

This Wiki is intended to be a Meta-Resource to the so called “Maddie Case”.

Besides some additional informations here you will mainly find structured links to resources into the Maddie-Case available in the World-Wide-Web.

The internet today holds tens of thousands of pages related to this “Criminal Case of the Century”. The →official PJ-Files were given to the public in 2008 and hold about 11223 pages of statements, photos and physical hard facts. Besides this serious source there are a lot of forensically worth non-official information through newspapers and media around the world. The largest serious collection are the →McCannFiles which will add up at least another 10000 pages of highly interesting information. Also there exist a large number of Blogs and Forums of discussion of the Case which also hold a lot of very unstructured information.

The structured Entry into the matter shall allow the Public, Journalists and Investigators to get informations in a convenient and serious way.

Hopefully this Resource will help somebody to finally solve and close the miracolous Case of Madeleine Beth McCann.
