Kate and Gerry McCann, who are marking nine years since their daughter Madeleine vanished while on holiday in Portugal, issue a statement on the anniversary of her disappearance.

Mr and Mrs McCann have issued a statement on their website saying that their “hope and resolve continue”, as they thanked supporters for their “continued help and commitment”. They have said “information is still forthcoming” in the inquiry.

Madeleine vanished from an apartment at the age of three while on holiday with her parents in the Algarve on May 3 2007.


Despite a hugely high-profile international hunt, there has never been any trace of her.

“As yet another anniversary comes around, we’d like to thank all our supporters for your continued help and commitment in the search for Madeleine, and the hope for her safe return.

It has been a very long time but the investigation continues, information is still forthcoming and our hope and resolve continue. Until we have answers, until there is news (real news!), there will always be hope and we will continue to do everything we can to help find Madeleine.

The charity ‘Missing People’ is releasing the single, ‘I hope’ on the 20th of May ahead of International Missing Children’s Day. Please support the charity to help all missing children and their families by downloading the song. You can pre-order in the iTunes store at: http://radi.al/IHope.

Thank you for supporting Missing People and for keeping Madeleine in your heart.

Kate and Gerry”

Detective Chief Superintendent Mick Duthie, the head of Scotland Yard’s homicide squad recently told the Evening Standard: “There is ongoing work. There is always a possibility that we will find Madeleine and we hope that we will find her alive.”

Our thoughts are with the McCann family as another year passes by.

  • This is why we need big brother watching.


  • This is devastating. I can’t believe how hard it must be for them


  • Miracles do happen but I hope they can find closure.


  • As sad and hard as it may be, I think Mr and Mrs McCann need to fade the fact their little girl is mostly likely no longer with us. This is such a high profile, world wide case, yet nothing has come up in 9 years.


  • I hope they get their answer either way. 9 years is a long time to wonder.


  • I don’t know how her parents and other relatives cope each day not know where or how Madeleine is. Her appearance may have changed more than is being predicted which would make it even harder to identify her.


  • Little girl! Her story is so heartbreaking. I hope that one day she will be reunited to her family. What a mystery!


  • Thoughts are always with this family. I hope that they get a happy ending and Madeleine is returned safe and well.


  • I would imagine that they must swing between believing that one day she will return home and thinking that they must deal with the fact she will never return home. It must be awful not having that closure.


  • I hope that Madelaine, if alive, is treated well. However, I do feel she will never be found alive. Very sad case. I hope the case is resolved soon and they find the truth by FINDING her, dead or alive – so that the family can find peace!!


  • I always thought they know more then what they are saying. But who knows? I just hope she’s found one day soon


  • Someone out there must know something as to the whereabouts of Maddie. Surely after nine years they can give this family some answers.
