Yacht owner pledges support to help find Madeleine

A millionaire widow has vowed to help the hunt for Madeleine McCann after her luxurious yacht was linked, and then dismissed, to the latest developments in the disappearance.

Rhonda Wyllie’s 105ft yacht was the only Australian-registered boat in Barcelona’s Port Olympic Marina on May 6, 2007, three days after Madeleine went missing.

It has not been suggested that Mrs. Wyllie is connected to the disappearance of Madeleine but the investigators wish to speak to the crew who were aboard that night.

Rhonda Wyllie said she was devastated that her yacht has been linked to the disappearance of Madeleine and that she will do anything she can to assist the private investigators in their search.

The investigators, working for Gerry and Kate McCann, revealed late last week that a witness had come forward with information about an Australian woman he spoke to in Barcelona near the Port Olympic Marina three days after Madeleine’s disappearance.

Since an artist’s impression was released, they have received around 600 calls about the woman.

Judith Aron from Victoria state in Australia was named by some as a match for the image but she said she has not left Australia for years as she has been looking after her sick father since 2000.
