Five years and still no sign – but the hunt goes on for Madeleine McCann

Five years ago today a little girl, nine days shy of her fourth birthday, disappeared from this ground-floor holiday flat in the Algarve. Madeleine McCann was, according to her parents, spirited away in the night by a kidnapper so bold that he, or she, was prepared to enter the property via a window as they dined with friends in a neighbouring restaurant.

Kate McCann, Madeleine’s mother, describes the moment of discovery in her book, Madeleine. Explaining how, during the meal, she, her husband Gerry and a friend took it in turns to check on Madeleine and her twin brother and sister, sleeping together in one of two bedrooms, she writes: “When I realised Madeleine wasn’t actually there, I went through to our bedroom to see if she’d got into our bed. That would explain the open (bedroom) door. On the discovery of another empty bed, the first wave of panic hit me. As I ran back into the children’s room the closed curtains flew up in a gust of wind. My heart lurched as I saw now that, behind them, the window was wide open and the shutters on the outside raised all the way up. Nausea, terror, disbelief, fear. Icy fear. Dear God, no! Please, no!”

  1. Thanks so much for supporting our campaign. I have been away on holiday and just come back to read your post. Thanks for the support. Lets hope this year is the year Maddie comes home x

  2. Thanks so much for reblogging my original post. It’s so important to spread the message that Madeleine is still missing. I absolutely beleive that she’s alive and that someone out there knows a little more than they claim to.
    Lets hope she comes home to her family soon.
    Thanks again!
