Today in a break from my usual posts I am supporting the campaign #Blogging4Madeleine it was started by Amummyview and Tea and Biscotti to raise awareness of Madeline McCann a young British girl abducted while on holiday. For those of you outside of the UK who may not be aware of Madeline McCann here is a brief summary.
On 3rd May 2007 Madeline McCann, a then 3 three years old little girl, was on holiday with her parents and two younger siblings in the Praia da Luz region of Portugal. One evening somebody broke into the family’s apartment and stole Madeline from her bed. Her parents have been searching for her ever since. Saturday was Madeline’s 9th birthday. She has been missing for 5 long years.
This is such a sad story. So many lives destroyed by this single horrific act. So much pain and suffering inflicted on one family. The McCann’s have never stopped looking for their daughter; they have kept up a constant media interest in the case in the hope that someone may remember something no matter how small that could prove a breakthrough in the search for Madeline.
Police have released a new image as a guide to how they think Madeline may look now aged 9.
If you see a young girl who looks like this, PLEASE CONTACT:
Your local police force immediately, AND
0207 321 9251 (in the UK)
+44 207 321 9251 (non-UK)
OR Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org
Somebody out there knows what happened to Madeline someone has a vital clue that could lead to finding her. The more people who are aware of the case the more chance there is that someone with that information will come forward. Please share this post with as many people as you can. In the hope that it may end up in front someone who knows what happened.
