Kate McCann: I slept with the children on night before Madeleine vanished after having row with Gerry

By Daily Mail Reporter

Last updated at 5:01 PM on 8th May 2011



She reveals how she slept in a separate room after she felt hurt and upset by what husband Gerry said

The hours leading up to moment Madeleine was discovered missing are revealed

Why the McCanns left their three children alone in the holiday apartment

The mother of missing Madeleine McCann has revealed how she angrily slept in another bedroom the night before her daughter went missing.
Kate McCann said her husband Gerry 'abruptly' left her socialising with friends while the family was on holiday in Praia De Luiz, Portugal in 2007.
She was so upset by the move that she decided to sleep with her children.

In an extract from her upcoming book, she reveals how Mr McCann said he was tired and excused himself from a dinner party at about 11.50pm before returning to the apartment where Madeleine was snatched from her bed a night later.
Embarrassed and upset that she had been left alone, Mrs McCann followed her husband a few minutes later and said she found him fast asleep in the bedroom, snoring.
Hurt by his 'lack of social graces' she chose to sleep in a spare bed in the same room as her three children, leaving her husband alone.

The revelations came as Mrs McCann attended a church service with her youngest daughter Amelie, just days before the book is released on May 12 - Madeleine's eighth birthday.

She attended the hour-long service while Mr McCann and their son Sean stayed at home.

The McCanns, of Rothley, Leicestershire, are hoping the sale of the book will raise £1m so they can continue to look for their missing daughter.
Mrs McCann's book will be on sale on May 12 - her missing daughter Madeleine's eighth birthday. She is pictured here with her youngest daughter Amelie going to the Church of the Sacred Heart in their hometown


In the book, Mrs McCann details the moments before Madeleine went missing and includes how she and Mr McCann had spent the night before the four-year-old went missing.
She said that day, May 2, was the last happy day the entire family spent together.
In an extract the former GP explains how she and her husband prepared dinner for the children and got them ready for bed before they headed out for tapas at 8.30pm with friends at the hotel restaurant.
Missing: Madeleine has still not been found four years after she disappeared in the Algarve
She described the incident between her and Mr McCann as 'isolated' and not reflective of their relationship as a couple.
However, she explains how every detail leading up to the disappearance of her daughter is crucial.

The next day she recalled how Madeleine asked her why she didn't come into the bedroom when she and her little brother Sean cried.
Puzzled by the statement, but not aware of its significance, the family continued as normal.

'Within hours, however, this would seem hugely important; and so haunted have I been ever since by Madeleine's words that I've continued to blame myself for not sitting down and making completely certain there was no more information I could draw out of her.'
Mrs McCann said she has images of her daughter etched in her mind and will specifically remembered how beautiful Madeleine looked in an outfit she was wearing that day at lunch.
Dressed in a peach-coloured smock top from Gap and some white broderie-anglaise shorts, from Monsoon, she larked about and chatted with her younger siblings.
Mrs McCann said she was striding ahead, swinging her arms backwards and forwards. Soon afterwards at the toddler pool she took the last photograph of her daughter.
The extract, published in the Sunday Times, also explains why the couple chose to leave their children in the apartment rather than leave them at a designated crèche where children could be looked after from about 7.30pm till 11pm.
The McCann's were diligent about ensuring all three of their children were in bed by the time it opened and decided to leave them in the holiday apartment and check on them every half hour.
Taking it in turns, they would make the short journey from the restaurant to where the children were sleeping and check on them.
It was Mrs McCann who first realised that Madeleine was missing.
At 10pm on the night her daughter went missing, Mrs McCann noticed that the children's bedroom door was open.
After realising something was not right she check to see if all three of the children were in bed.

Unable to make her daughter Madeleine out she went through to see if the youngster had gone through to her parent's room.
Filled with terror, disbelief and fear she soon realised that Madeleine was gone. The pink cuddle-cat toy and princess blanket still in the same place they were when Mrs McCann kissed her children goodnight.

The book, which is 384-pages long, was written by Mrs McCann without the help of a ghost-writer and is tipped to become a best-seller.
Madeleine was nearly four when she went missing while her family was on holiday in the Algarve as her parents dined with friends nearby.
Despite a massive police investigation and world-wide publicity she has not been found.
The Portuguese inquiry into her disappearance has not been active since July 2008 but detectives working for the McCann's have continued their search for the little girl.

Same article updated, but I hadn't heard this before

[quote]

In one extract, Mrs McCann describes her horror at discovering a predatory paedophile could easily have been tipped off that Madeleine was vulnerable, by a staff note on display at reception which revealed the McCanns 'were leaving our young children alone...and checking on them intermittently'. The note was written by a receptionist to staff explaining why they wanted to reserve tables every night close to their apartment.

Good grief, surely no woman whose priority was "social graces" would ever consider marrying Gerald McCann. I know some women think they can change things about their partners, but turning him into a gentleman would be a superhuman achievement.

This at the bottom of todays (8th) Mail.................

MASS PRAYER

With the bumbling Portuguese police getting nowhere, terror-struck Kate McCann turned to all she had left: divine intervention.
Five hours after Madeleine went missing, she tried to mobilise a mass prayer at 3am.
First she telephoned her friend Father Paul Seddon, the priest who had married her and Gerry in 1998, and then her best friend Michelle back in the UK.
'I needed her to get her large Catholic family praying too,' said Mrs McCann, who had already been on her knees in her bedroom, 'begging God and Our Lady to protect Madeleine and help us find her'.
Unsurprisingly, her friend Michelle was asleep and her partner Jon, who answered the phone, was at first reluctant to wake her.
Mrs McCann said: 'Poor Jon - I don't think he could quite get his brain in gear for a moment or two. "No one's listening" I wept. "Nothing's happening".' After arranging the mass prayer, Mrs McCann could not sleep, but her husband told her: 'Kate, we need to rest.

Kate McCann said they didn't search because it was too dark so what else were they to do but rest?

Have we heard about this 'mass prayer' before ? I have no recollection of anyone having spoken about it.
Family members and close friends were talking freely to the press the next day about having been called late at night to be told about 'Jemmied shutters', and so on, but does anyone have a recollection, or even better a link, about a 'mass prayer' having being organised that night ?

Quite apart from the utter futility of asking God to help, when He has clearly organised the whole thing anyway, (assuming He is omnipotent, and omnipresent of course, and is not just having a night off )
There was once a phrase "God helps those who help themselves." Rather like "Praise God - and pass the ammunition"

Hi PeterMac,

Don't ever recall anything about a mass prayer, but I seem to remember KM's mum saying something about her wanting the number of their priest.

Haven't heard this one before.

This is very fishy. Who left the note at Reception? The Staff or the Mcs?
