FBI Offers $20,000 Reward But Issues No Press Release
The Madeline McCann Connection: What the Definitive Answer?
Weâ€™ve been following the story of Baby Grace, the little girl whose body was found on a small inlet on Galveston Bay. A fisherman discovered her October 29th encased in a blue plastic tote that came to rest on a sand bar.
The FBI has a reward of $20,000 for information leading to the identity of Baby Grace. It was tacked onto a poster released by the FBI. It is unknown what date the FBI put out this flier. Although the reward is on the flier, no press release was issued concerning the reward.
The Galveston County Sheriffâ€™s Department has not released any further info on the Baby Grace case. The last known press release was November 12th when CBS News put out its story, â€œPolice Flooded With Baby Grace Tips.â€
Why isn’t the local press pursuing this? Where’s the Houston Chronicle?
The police are sifting through clues and tips; have they ruled any of the little girls they are considering out? There have been no new statements; this does not mean that the parents of the missing girls across the country have lost interest in developments in this case.
Last Press Story Released on Baby Grace
Investigators on Monday said at least two dozen girls reported missing from across the country match the physical description of the child investigators have named “Baby Grace.”
Investigators were pursuing 170 active leads and on Monday were conducting follow-up interviews with people who had given promising clues, Galveston County Sheriffâ€™s Office spokesman Maj. Ray Tuttoilmondo said, according to the Galveston County Daily News.
The Baby Grace – Madeleine McCann Connection
â€œWe do not believe she is from our area, because no one local has reported a missing child matching this description,” Cindy said. “She could be from anywhere in the world. There are ships that pass through here, so she could be from anywhere.”
Early in the Baby Grace Case it was reported the possibility that Baby Grace could be Madeleine McCann, the little girl allegedly abducted May 3rd, 2007, in Portugal.
Tuttoilmondo added that several callers said they believe the child’s body, which was discovered by a fisherman late Monday, may be that of Madeleine McCann, a 4-year-old British girl whose disappearance from a resort hotel in Portugal in May has made international headlines. In September, Portuguese police formally identified Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann as suspects in the case.
“Based on the totality of the circumstances, we do not believe it’s her (Madeleine),” Tuttoilmondo said adding that the Sheriff’s Office is also working with FBI authorities to completely rule out the possibility.
The FBI offered a $20,000 reward and no mention of it is in the papers.
Meanwhile, many people in England want to know about the Madeline McCann/Baby Grace connection: Is Madeline McCann in or out as a possible match?
