First we had Amanda Hart & Ben Murphy jumping on the Madeleine McCann case purely for self gain and publicity, and now we have Diane Lazarus.
In a story on Sun Online it is said that she is travelling to Portugal today to join the hunt for Madeleine McCann.
She has made various claims about Madeleine, including the following:
Maddie was targeted after being secretly watched by her abductors, including one woman
Firstly as a psychic why didn't YOU Diane see this before it happened, and try and stop it?
She is in Spain after travelling by car on main roads from Portugal and is being well looked after
So why are you travelling to Portugal for?
You are only interested in getting publicity for your poor excuse of a career.
First you get interviewed in The Sun, maybe you are hoping to get on TV too.
One of the culprits has olive skin, dark hair and a drawn, skinny face
Wow you have just covered pretty much the majority of the people in Portugal.
I hope going to Praia da Luz will give me the leads to where exactly she went from there. I feel she could be in Spain.
In other words you are gonna stick you nose in their business, try and see what others are saying and that pretend that you "saw" that before.
I have also picked up that they cut Maddie’s hair and made her look like a boy.
Strange that at least a couple of members of our forum said the same thing. It is the typical thing a kidnapper would do.
Quite honestly I don’t think Madeleine has come to any harm. She will be returned to her mummy and daddy.
I pray to god you are right, because if you are wrong, I will come down on you like a ton of bricks, remember Sylvia Brown and the Shawn Hornbeck case, that will be nothing.
(As of August 16th 2017, 10 years later, Madeleine has NOT been returned to her parents or been found alive or dead)
I feel there are a few people, including a woman, involved in the disappearance.
Wy dont you give us names, locations, ANYTHING, instead of this bullshit.
I don’t think the culprits are British. I thought the prime suspect Robert Murat was innocent from day one.
We will hold you to this Diane, don't you worry.
Diane will spend four days on the Algarve after being invited by a close friend of Gerry and Kate McCann, both 38.
As devout Catholics I am assuming that the PARENTS of Madeleine know NOTHING of this, and in fact would be disgusted that you would try to raise your profile of the kidnap of their poor child.
I would never go to Portugal without the consent of the family.
Really? Yet you would happily go to the newspapers and advertise the fact.
Hundreds of people have contacted me to see if I could help.
Even Bonnie Tyler, who is one of my best clients, has been in touch.
Then Bonnie Tyler is a fool
I will have to be careful not to ruffle feathers with the Portugese police because I don’t know how they feel about psychics.
I hope they lock you up and throw away the key for wasting police time.
