Kate McCann says every day brings fresh hope that her missing daughter Madeleine will be found.
 
Ms McCann, whose daughter has been missing since 2007, said she still believes that every new day will be the one to end her torment.
The former GP revealed her continued heartache during an impassioned speech as she joined forces with the mother of murdered Alice Gross to launch a new charity.
 
The appeal, Find Every Child, aims to raise money so the charity Missing People can reach out to the thousands of youngsters who disappear each year.
 
Speaking at the launch event in London, Ms McCann said: 'We go to bed every night with the agonising feeling that just maybe tomorrow we will find something to lead us back to Madeleine. To let us know what happened. To give us hope.'
 
Ms McCann shared the stage at the Corinthia Hotel with Ros Hodgkiss, whose 14-year-old daughter Alice was found dead in September 2014 after she went missing for five weeks.
 
Together, the mothers - united it grief over the loss of their daughters - highlighted the plight of 140,000 youngsters who go missing in Britain each year.
Ms McCann, an ambassador for Missing People, then made an impromptu speech in which she urged the public to give their support. 
'When my little girl first disappeared, on that horrendous night that changed our lives forever, I could never have imagined that nearly 10 years later we would still be in the same position. 
 
'That I would be stood here in front of you tonight talking about the issue and how important it is that we look for each and every missing child.
'Giving hope is what Missing People do day in and day out. Please help this wonderful charity in their ambitious goal to Find Every Child.'
 
Ms Hodgkiss also relived the nightmare of her daughter's disappearance and murder, adding that the family are indebted to the charity for its help.
She said: 'We had access to their 24 hour helpline to help us deal with the ongoing crisis of her disappearance.
 
'Missing People also provided specialized trauma counselling to us, which helped us manage the immediate aftermath of Alice's disappearance prior to the news of her death.'
 
She said it was still hard to express the 'enormity' of their loss.
She added: 'The one thing we can be certain of is that our lives can never be the same again.
'But Missing People helped me, and I know that they will help other parents faced with the disorienting mayhem of a child going missing. Find every child is one way of doing that.' 
 
Madeleine, three, vanished from a holiday apartment in Portugal's Praia da Luz nearly 10 years ago in May 2007.
 
Ms McCann and her heart doctor husband Gerry, both 48, from Rothley, Leicestershire, believe their daughter – who would now be aged 13 – could still be alive.
 
Her family have been buoyed up by Scotland Yard's pledge to continue searching for Madeleine for at least another five months.
 
Schoolgirl Alice never returned to her home in Hanwell, West London, after going for a walk in August 2014.
 
Her Latvian killer Arnis Zalkalns , who hung himself, had been able to live freely in Britain despite a conviction for murdering his wife in Latvia.
Continuing her plea, Alice's mother described the time of Alice's disappearnace as 'an unbearable period of shock and suspended grief.'
 
In a reference to Ms McCann, she added: 'But there are families and friends who have had people missing for months, years, decades.'
She paid tribute to her daughter as 'a vibrant girl, full of life and energy, quirky and funny, smart and pretty.' She is helping to repair her life by singing in the Missing People choir – music was her daughter's passion. 
 
Jo Youle, charity CEO, said: 'If every vulnerable child who went missing last year in the UK were together they would fill Wembley Stadium – twice.
 
The number of children we are desperately searching for increased by 60 per cent this year. We have the means to help far more children.
However our team is absolutely stretched to capacity. If we don't urgently raise more funds, this year alone hundreds of vulnerable children will not be found.'
 
She said the fundraising event was made possible thanks to the support of players of the People's Postcode Lottery, Clear Channel and Royal Mail. 
 
The event took place at the Corinthia Hotel in central London in front of guests including Sir Trevor McDonald, Fiona Phillips and actress Monica Dolan.

…………………………………………………………
 
Usual suspects at the event I see.
 
What’s with the ‘Ms McCann’ bit?
 
Good to see they are still ‘buoyed’. Isn’t it about time they came up with a different phrase?
 
I also posted up some interesting ‘missing people’ statistics from the Met under the:
 
https://jillhavern.forumotion.net/t12572p50-missing-people-spot-the-missing-person#351845
 
thread earlier, which might make a few holes in Jo Youles filling ‘Wembley Stadium twice over’. One individual can’t fill 88 seats at the same time and this is repeated over and over again.
 
It also raises the question of whether they should even be classed as ‘missing’ at all.
 
Personally, I think the ‘amber alert’ type system shows a better representation of the scale of the problem. From memory, in the first twelve months it was used once I believe, somewhere in the Midlands and even then the ‘missing girl’ took herself home within hours.

Missing People have published another 'Impact Report' quoting various facts and figures along with a photo of Kate McCann on her bicycle ride.

I know the McCanns like to be buoyed-up at every given opportunity but how does the murder of a child give Ms McCann fresh hope?

Perhaps Tracey Kandohla could elaborate when she's had time to further evaluate the story

To find a missing child isn't it first necessary to search for the missing child?  By her own admission Ms McCann didn't do that - nor did her husband, how then can she be an ambassador for missing people?

The gospel according to Saint Katherine.

Where's the Prime Minister, Theresa May and/or the Home Secretary Amber Rudd?  What an excelent photoshoot opportunity missed..



Kate McCann (right) met with Theresa May in her role as Home Secretary at the launch of a new Child Rescue Alert system

No of course, she's too busy replying to a very important lengthy missive concerning the disappearance of a particular little three year old girl by the name of Madeleine McCann - isn't they?

Ms/Mrs/Dr McCann takes time out from the relentless search for her daughter to selflessly attend a publicity event in London. Oh, I just remembered, she and her husband didn't search for Madeleine, by her own admission. The way she attaches herself to grieving genuine victims of crime is positively parasitical.
