The family of
missing Madeleine McCann has said there has been an overwhelming response to
their campaign to find the four-year-old.
Michael Wright, a close relative of Madeleine's parents Gerry and Kate, said a
campaign website has had more than five million visitors.
Madeleine went missing exactly two weeks ago while on holiday in Portugal.
Russian Sergey Malinka, who has been questioned over her disappearance, has
denied any involvement.
Speaking in Praia da Luz, Mr Wright said: "Gerry and Kate are taking immense
strength from the support and good wishes that they are receiving from all over
"They have been totally overwhelmed by offers from individuals, small companies,
and large multi-national corporations.
"Both of them are firmly fixed on the campaign which is designed to raise
Madeleine's profile right across Europe and
ensure we bring her home."
He said a fund launched with the website on Wednesday would pay for the campaign
and to hire experts in publicity and detection.
There has been speculation the family may hire private investigators to look for
Madeleine, who vanished from her bed when her parents were at a nearby
restaurant on 3 May.
Mr Wright said companies had agreed to include Madeleine's image on outgoing
emails while others have promised text message campaigns, poster distribution
and financial support.
Meanwhile, IT expert Mr Malinka, 22, was taken to a police station in Portimao
and computer equipment was removed from his flat in Praia da Luz.
He says he is "completely" innocent and that his life had "fallen apart".
Police have not officially confirmed the man they have questioned is Mr Malinka.
But they said the man had been questioned as a witness.
Briton Robert Murat, 33, is the only formal suspect in the case.
Mr Malinka is believed to have designed a website for Mr Murat's property
Following his release, Mr Malinka said he did not have a criminal record in any
He said: "I've invested seven years of my life in this country trying to
succeed, and suddenly in one hour it's all fallen apart."
Speaking later he refused to comment on reports that there were several mobile
phone calls between himself and Mr Murat on the night Madeleine disappeared.
'Honest and normal'
He did confirm that his name was in Mr Murat's phone, adding: "They have been
questioning everybody in his phone book."
After spending two hours at his apartment, plain clothes officers carried out
two hard drives, a laptop and a black bin bag.
Joao Marques, a local businessman who uses Mr Malinka's IT services, described
him as an "honest, normal young man".
Mr Murat, who had helped police with translation work, was questioned by
detectives for 12 hours and his mother's villa was searched.
He was later given "arguido" status by police, which means he is officially a
suspect - although he can request this status himself.
Officers later released Mr Murat, saying they did not have the evidence to
formally arrest or charge anybody.
Mr Murat, who previously was based with his ex-wife in Hockering, Norfolk, has recently been
living with his mother Jenny, 71, at her villa, Casa Liliana, in Praia da Luz.
On Thursday posters protesting his innocence were put up around Hockering.
Rewards of ?2.5m have been offered to anyone with information leading to the
four-year-old's safe return.
