THE Pope will today meet Kate and Gerry McCann, the parents of missing four-year-old Madeleine.

The couple flew from the Algarve to Rome last night in Sir Phillip Green's 12-seater private jet. It was the first time the couple have left Portugal together since their daughter was abducted at Praia da Luz on 3 May.

They decided to leave their two-year-old twins Sean and Amelie in Portugal because they were too young to make the journey and would be unsettled by being in a strange place.

They are being looked after by Gerry's sister Trish Cameron and her husband Sandy.

Mr McCann said they were feeling nervous about meeting the Pontiff because it was such a huge opportunity to raise the profile of their daughter's case.

"Meeting the Pope is so potentially hugely important to what we are trying to achieve as a family.

"We never for one moment thought we would get such publicity, but it means we can get our message across."

The couple said they hoped to spend a few moments speaking to Pope Benedict XVI when they meet him at the General Audience in the morning.

"This is a huge privilege and absolutely brilliant that we are having the opportunity even to be in the audience.

"If he did speak to us, then we would be delighted," he said.

Mrs McCann, added: "I think it will really help us."

As they stepped off the plane they were greeted by the British Ambassador to the Holy See, Francis Campbell, and the Italian media.

Meanwhile Michael Hamilton, the father of missing Scottish schoolgirl Vicky Hamilton who vanished in 1991, is to contact the McCann's to offer his support.

The 56-year-old, says he feels empathy with the family and will urge them to continue living in hope.
