'CONCERN' OVER MADELEINE
Express 27 May 2007 [Now removed from internet]
Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall
said they had been following the case of
missing Madeleine McCann "closely and
with deep concern" and "fervently hoped"
she would be reunited with her family.
The couple's remarks were made in a
statement from Clarence House and were
the latest in a series of high profile
messages of support for the family.
It was revealed earlier that Prime
Minister-in-waiting Gordon Brown had
spoken personally to the father of
missing Madeleine to pledge support from
the top of the Government for the
family's efforts to find her.
Entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson,
footballer Wayne Rooney and Harry Potter
creator JK Rowling, have all offered
financial rewards a multi-million pound
reward for her safe return.
Portuguese police were forced to make an
embarrassing U-turn after Madeleine's
parents were desperate to release
details about a man seen carrying what
was thought to be a child on the night
Madeleine went missing and had
threatened legal action.
But after a meeting between the couple
and senior Portuguese officials, the
police relented and a physical
description was issued.
Gerry McCann said the talks were
amicable and constructive and insisted
the sighting could prove "significant
and relevant" in finding the
four-year-old. It is 23 days since
Madeleine was snatched from her bed in
the Algarve town of Praia da Luz.
Mr McCann said he and wife Kate wanted
"more than anything" to get their
daughter back. Appealing for help, he
said: "Any information, no matter how
unimportant you think it could be might
be vital in helping the Portuguese and
British police find our daughter."
The McCanns are convinced that a white
man aged around 35 to 40 spotted by a
friend of the couple near their
apartment at 9.30 pm was holding
Madeleine. He was medium build, 5ft 10in
tall, wearing a dark jacket and beige
Portuguese police have known about the
sighting for three weeks but because of
laws which forbid the release of details
of an investigation the sighting could
not be publicly released
