PRAIA DA LUZ, Portugal (Reuters) - The parents of four-year-old
Madeleine McCann, who vanished more than two weeks ago from a Portuguese
resort, remain positive she will be found, the priest who married the couple
said on Friday.
"They remain very, very positive and will do all that they can to find
Madeleine," Father Seddon told journalists at the Praia da Luz resort
where Madeleine was abducted 15 days ago.
He said her father, Gerry, had told him he could see light at the end of the
tunnel and that everything was still possible.
"Gerry spoke of a tidal wave of destruction that Madeleine's disappearance
had caused him but then he said he was met by a tidal wave of empathy and love
which has been turned into action and hope," he said.
Chief inspector Olegario Sousa said late on Thursday police continued to follow
their strongest lead in the investigation, which has centred on foreigners in
the small resort.
So far one suspect has been identified by police -- a 33-year-old who lives in
the area -- but his name has not been made public.
The search for Madeleine has received widespread media attention all over the
Soccer stars including David Beckham and Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo have
made appeals for Madeleine while wealthy individuals, including author JK
Rowling, have offered large rewards for information leading to her return.
