What happened to Maddie

Listening to your great show I think I have made a connection that was not suggested:

This is my take of what could have happened:

Maddie woke up and went looking for her parents as she did previously, but on this occasion she got lost on the way or was taken by an opportunist - who was possibly seen by the Smiths.

The opportunist - a local - must have known Christian B and called him on his mobile and they spoke for 30 mins. Maddie was then handed over to Christian B.

My theory discounts anyone entering the McCanns apartment. It doesn’t require predetermination and relies on chance which is more likely. It doesn’t need the German Prosecution cell location evidence and accounts for the 30 min phone call Christian B is known to have had.

My theory just requires an additional unknown person who ran into Maddie.
