“Date: 2007/05/04 Location: Praia da Luz - Lagos, Description and result of diligence:
Following various informal conversations related to the area of research, we were contacted by a British citizen named JEREMY MICHAEL WILKINS, holder of passport no. …., owner of mobile phone no. +447…., living at X…… He spends his holidays at, “WATERSIDE GARDENS,” block G4 APT 0 (about 50 metres from the apartment where the small child was). Stated: 1. that yesterday, between 20h30 and 21 hours, while he was in “THE TAPAS” bar, he noticed a person of around 1.70, with long blond hair, apparently of the “rasta style”, and dressed in green military-style clothes; 2. that this person did not stay very long and their behaviour was somewhat strange, since they seemed to be a little nervous; 3. he was alone, he did not speak to anyone and left soon afterwards; 4. the informant maintains that he has never seen this person in the village.”
