The Tanner Sighting (ca. 21.15)

The so called Tanner Sighting came first into the case with the Tapas-9 timeline. Jane Tanner testified she had seen a suspect carrying a child away as she passed Gerry McCann and Jez Wilkins who were in a small talk at the time around 21:15.

It was since then another miracle in the Case. Neither Gerry McCann nor Jez Wilkins, who where both close to the alleged sighting, could confirm this seeing. Jez Wilkins testified that he must have seen the suspected person if there were one. But he didn't. Also it is a marvel that the child's father Gerry should not have mentioned his daughter being abducted just some meters away in his proximate viewing angle. Also the men couldn't even confirm seeing Jane Tanner passing them.

Besides the Smith's Sighting the Tanner Sighting, if indeed being real, was the only of several alleged sightings of suspects, which where spatiotemporal close enough for an immediate suspect. Meanwhile but Scotland Yard could identify the possible sighting as an innocent british holidaymaker, who indeed carried his child at this time and place back to his apartment in the eastern parts of the Ocean Club resort.

Despite the clearing done by Scotland Yard, there are but still some miracles left about the Tanner Sighting. See e.g. →McCannFiles.
