Missing Maddie & Another Crackpot Clairvoyant

Crackpot clairvoyant Michael Schneider claims he’s found the location of Madeleine McCann’s body; he remarkably did so with Google Maps, his fingers and the help of God (according to the ‘Mirror’)

When the British government is in a mess – the current case being whether the 21st June ‘unlockdown’ will actually occur due to the ever-increasing prevalence of the Indian variant of coronavirus – they encourage the reeling out of another senseless story about ‘disappeared’ Madeleine McCann.


After sharing a “nothing new” story in late May and an irrelevant “we won’t be getting a verdict until the end of the year” in the legal battle between the child’s parents and Goncalo Amaral last week, today the Mirror returned to the fray with an utterly preposterous “exclusive.”


Sharing suggestions from a clairvoyant – yes, you read it correct, a crackpot clairvoyant – named Michael Schneider, the paper reported that the BKA, “Germany’s equivalent of the FBI,” are “appropriately incorporating” his belief that ‘Missing Maddie’ is “buried in a forest just six miles where she vanished… into their work.”


Schneider argues he “does not give out such information lightly,” yet then laughably explained: “I look at a photo of the missing person and ask myself upwards towards God whether this living being is alive or dead.”


Continuing, this clearly off-his-merry-rocker 50-year-old fruitcake then added:


“After that I take an atlas or a road map and look at large areas superficially. Afterwards at Google Maps and Earth. Then I let my fingers and my eyes circle over these maps until they stop on a spot and mark it.”


Elsewhere, the MailOnline shared their thoughts on the development and declared:


“He isn’t the first clairvoyant to claim supernatural powers have helped him pinpoint Madeleine’s location. Nine years ago, detectives studied 100 logs from psychics that were previously ignored and termed ‘a waste of resources.’”


“And in 2017, the family were hit by a cruel hoax after Susan Kelly demanded payment from the family as she claimed to know ‘the truth’ about Madeleine’s whereabouts.”


Responding to Schneider’s plainly nothing but a publicity prank prattling, the frankly utterly useless German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters witlessly warbled:


“Several psychics have responded to our call for help in the past year and offered assistance. In some cases, we also received ­concrete tips. We do not ignore them, but we are cautious.”


On Twitter, members of the public called out this claptrap for what it truly is. One user named Eli remarked: “There’s a sucker born every minute” whilst another concluded: “If you wish to know where Madeleine McCann is… ask Kate and Gerry.”


Going further and echoing our previous sentiments about the total misallocation of £13.5 million to a case that plainly isn’t going to get solved whilst neglecting to support the families of other missing people, one David Osland shared an image of another child who went missing and quite rightly asked: “Any reason this poor boy didn’t get the same priority as Madeleine McCann?”

The ‘MailOnline’ shared that the location former TV reporter turned clairvoyant Michael Schneider believes where Madeleine McCann’s body is buried is just six miles from where she ‘vanished’ in Praia da Luz, Portugal in May 2007. They added: “[He] has told police officers the ‘exact co-ordinates’ of the spot he believes the youngster’s body can be found in a fresh blow to the McCann family… His clairvoyance technique includes looking at photographs of a missing person and asking God ‘whether this living being is alive or dead,’ before turning to atlases and Google Maps until they ‘stop on a spot.’”

    • She was brilliant 😃. In 1996 she predicted “a man that used a red pen will be lucky toooo !” That man was me. I had 4 numbers on 1 ticket and 5 plus bonus ball on another.

      C’mon you gotta hand it to her, she was 100% correct.

      1. Man ✔
      2. Red pen ✔
      3. Lucky toooo ✔

      What’s the chances of another male winner using a red pen 🤔

  1. This is article is shameful and wrong and you should be doing what you can to help dear and Gerry and Kate find their beloved daughter Madeleine McCann. Michael Schneider is also wrong and repeating his money making effort is wrong. This time people must realise that he is not helping dear Gerry and Kate but helping himself however and we must all work to help them find their living beloved daughter Madeleine. It is time to FIND MADELEINE, FIND HER NOW and this time the Steeple Times must put right all it has done wrong and aid Gerry and Kate in their efforts to FIND MADELEINE, FIND HER NOW.

  2. Another Mad-DIE scam. The kid is dead but it is not where this crank is saying – unless he put her there which he plainly didn’t. He should shut his trap but he won’t because he’s scamming.

  3. This man is clearly mentally ill and the Mirror should be censured for exploiting his vulnerable state. Michael Schneider should be sectioned urgently.

  4. Mr. Steeples, like John Wedger, is the voice of truth. People don’t like the truth if it makes them look guilty. All those who appose Mr. Steeples’ efforts are the ones who need to be sectioned urgently.

  5. You’re all wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maddie is probably living it up with an Arab prince she was sold to!!!!!!!!!! Probably glad to be rid of those ugly parents and living in luxury in some Saud palace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stop wasting money searching for her!!!!!!!!!!! She doesn’t want to be found!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. The latest rehashed story line contains an image that looks like a modified Tom Cruise. As for the CB nonsense, that is another full on fake, if you don’t believe me, go way above Wandering Wolter’s head and find out for yourselves. Madeleine unfortunately died, but not in Portugal.

    Brunt, Harrison + SO, Gamble and co. know everything, EVERYTHING, Gamble even knows how many types of concrete there are, or thereabouts, go figure…

  7. Every year approximately 180,000 people go missing in the UK alone.
    I would like somebody to explain to me why we don’t see the publicity and money given to those cases like we have with the McCann’s, is there something we’re all missing here?
    I would also like to know why Gillian Trott is so obsessed with this case, and other ridiculous causes, like Rolf Harris and Jimmy Saville are Innocent, she obviously has a very uneventful life talking to the vegetables at the bottom of the garden.
    If this loony tune, MS claims he knows where the body is, Fine, get him to take the authorities to where she is, then obviously, when she’s not there, bang his sorry ass up for wasting police time.

    • With all due respect, Dodge. You’re falling into the trap of believing it’s true. It’s not, it’s utter contrivance, just like the C.B. invention. The closest they are ever going to get to that risible wish list is the famous German musician of the selfsame name, and obviously, that is never going to happen. Caveat emptor and have a grand day; it’s fake news until proven otherwise. Let them try to be the SAS, can’t wait for it, that’ll be good for a well-needed and somewhat healing.. good old belly laugh.

      “Everybody lies.” Said a Portuguese pro, he was right about that but jumped the gun when he claimed Madeleine died in that cold spartan stage set of an apartment.

      Kate and Gerry McCann were juiced to the last drop. Nevertheless, lessons have not been learned, even when it comes to them. For anyone old enough to remember, a little too Hyacinth Bucket and not quite enough Hilda Ogden in my ever such humble opinion.

      “Never apologise.” Oh do grow up!

  8. Madeleine McCann’s parents are doing what any parent would do and they are quite within their rights to carry on searching for their kidnapped child. I believe Maddie is still alive and is probably under sedation to behave as her captors want her. They have probably raped and abused her repeatedly and maybe she has Stockholm Syndrome. I am sick to the back teeth of this website attacking Gerry and Kate and it is time this poisonous tome was closed down permanently. Matthew Steeples has upset too many times Gerry and Kate and also I see Tamara Ecclestone as well and Catherine Meyer and even a plainly talented PR woman named Ivy Holt. Shut down and shut up.

    • You are correct her parents are quite within their rights to carry on searching for their daughter. However their not within their rights to expect the tax payer to keep paying for it. Millions of pounds have been thrown at this case, and is still on going. Other missing persons don’t see anywhere near this publicity or money allocated to their cases, it’s a bloody scandal. Also, as I’ve mentioned previously, the McCanns should be held to account for leaving unattended children in a foreign hotel, while they wined and dined with friends, disgraceful.

  9. I’m confused, I’ve never heard of this guy til now, but from what I read, the police said that he’s actually solved the cases of 3 other people before and he’s also said that he never takes money? Did the police pay him? Cos if they had, wouldn’t they agree with the public and say that he’s just a scam? I don’t understand how he is if they’ve said he’s done it before and some other ones have given concrete evidence. Therefore surely they aren’t all fake? How did he do it otherwise. I’m also confused because if these people do have some sort of ‘gift’, how come they don’t solve more cases 🤣
