As Maddie McCann’s parents face their ninth Christmas without their beautiful girl, they have published a list of twenty-two things they miss most about her.
Gerry and Kate McCann are throwing their support behind the Missing People’s Christmas campaign, which also features another eleven families who also have a missing a parent, sibling, son or daughter.
All the families involved in the campaign have had their photos taken by photographer James O Jenkins outside of their homes – waiting for their loved ones to appear. The photos will appear as part of a strong London based exhibition, titled: ‘Missing People’s Home For Christmas’.
