Taken from with thanks to MM........





As we approach the end of another year, we’d like to thank everyone again for their amazing support. It is both heart-warming and reassuring to know that after all this time Madeleine still remains in so many people’s hearts and minds. This solidarity and commitment gives us great hope. Thank you.

The Metropolitan Police Review of all the material in the inquiry has been underway for over eighteen months. We have been really impressed and greatly encouraged by the work which has been done and its findings to date which are revealing there are definitely many stones yet to turn. We continue to wait and hope that the Portuguese authorities will agree to reopen the case so that the many lines of enquiry can be investigated. As Madeleine’s parents, we won’t be able to rest until we know that all that can be feasibly done to find her, and the person who took her, has been done.

In the meantime, we will continue to do all that we can to aid the search for our daughter and assist the Review process.

This year, Madeleine’s Fund has paid for:

1. A 24 hour, 7 day a week telephone line to receive and capture information from around the world which may assist the investigation

2. A small investigation team, including a Portuguese speaker to help with the above and with campaign activities.

Since March 2012 independent ‘physical’ investigation of lines of enquiry by our team has been put on hold whilst the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) Review progresses. This has been to avoid duplication (and thereby unnecessary expenditure) and to prevent the risk of compromising any work, albeit unintentionally, carried out by the MPS. The private investigation team employed by the Fund continue to cooperate and work with the Metropolitan Police as and when necessary.

3. Part-time administrative support to aid the investigation and campaign to find Madeleine (campaign coordinator and media liaison)

4. The awareness-raising campaign to ensure that Madeleine is not forgotten and to encourage the general public to remain vigilant. This has included the running of the Find Madeleine website.

5. Assistance from a specialist Portuguese communications agency to ensure that our message is communicated as widely and accurately as possible in Portugal, where support and help to find Madeleine is especially needed.

We are very aware that without public help it will be virtually impossible to find Madeleine. It would have been incredibly difficult for us to have maintained a search for her this long without such support, including donations to the Fund. Due to the sales of my book, ‘Madeleine’, the financial position of the Fund has significantly improved from a year and a half ago so we would like to reiterate our gratitude to everybody who bought the book. This has helped the search in more ways than one. Whilst fund expenditure has decreased over the past six months (due to a reduction in investigation spending as outlined in point 2) the Directors feel it is important that the fund maintains reasonable reserves so that the search for Madeleine can be resumed quickly should the MPS review not lead to a reopening of the case in Portugal. We desperately hope of course that the official investigation to find Madeleine will be reopened – and soon – as we still believe this is probably our best chance of finding our little girl.

Despite becoming stronger in ourselves and being able to create as special a Christmas as possible for our children, this time of year will never be as it should without Madeleine. Whilst Gerry and I think it constantly, Sean and Amelie now vocalise it, especially when doing something really nice like putting up the decorations….”If only Madeleine was here too…”

If you know what has happened to Madeleine, or where she might be now, please, please do the right thing: Find the compassion and courage and let us know. Thank you.

This past weekend we sat and opened the many, many Christmas cards which have been sent to us, at what is now our sixth Christmas without Madeleine. The majority were from people we have never met. It was once again a very humbling yet totally uplifting experience. We are deeply touched by the thoughtfulness and compassion which we continue to experience and for the love and hope which shine through for Madeleine. Thank you so much. It means such a lot - and helps us immensely.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of our supporters. We wish you a festive period full of laughter,
warmth and friendship – and hope for a special 2013.



Kate

There are a few pointers that Gerry is no longer with Kate, with all her single public appearances and then this Christmas message also without Gerry. At first his not being there made me think he was maybe very very busy at work and couldn't get time off, but his name not being on the Christmas missive has nothing to do with being busy.

Maybe rather: please find the compassion and courage and let the POLICE know ...

But it is IMO a rhetorical question.

No, NO, NO!!!
They have to be told first, so that Clarrie can get the spin right, or it can be quietly forgotten about.

Yes, what I find difficult to believe is "the twins miss Madeleine". For goodness sake, they weren't even TWO YEARS of age. I don't think they even remember her now

But
Seems to me that Clarrie is getting quite a lot "right" now, looking at the countless identical news items :-(

If it's true, it's criminal Sally, it really is.
They should give the twins a live of their own.
But IMO the fragrant pair [not so much a pair anymore since quite some time, I guess] will soon be caught up by their own shadows.

It could be seen as child abuse
wft

I remember reading inThe Sun that they were sent Xmas presents from Madeleine, you know, Madeleine who was taken by a bad man

These parents have always used their younger kids as emotional blackmail

Perhaps this reflects a new royal status? The piece started off rather like the Queen's speech and as far as I know Prince Phillip isn't a joint signatory of that either - although the Queen does usually refer to "My husband and I" .... but I guess we'll just have to be patient and wait until the pair appear at the same event. If Gerry has to walk a few paces behind Kate, then we'll know for certain.

Just what I was thinking T4Two. I suppose in a few years they`ll be doing an Xmas Day broadcast to the nation. Christmas Message ... my ****.

"We continue to wait and hope that the Portuguese authorities will agree to reopen the case so that the many lines of inquiry can be investigated," she said."

From what I understand...If they agreed to a reconstruction that would be sufficient 'new evidence' to 'reopen' the case (even though it is only shelved and not closed)

Could someone confirm this for me, as I feel a McMinute coming on.....

The Christmas message according to Kate....thanks for the money support Merry Christmas to all those who support us (not everyone else) and....send us some more money.

apologies, I meant to reply without adding to T4two's post.

This " We have been really impressed and greatly encouraged by the work which has been done and its findings to date which are revealing there are definitely many stones yet to turn." is just conjecture. Don't believe for one moment Scotland Yard are sharing their "findings" as they go. no
