But it, the fight fund, will not be used for legal expenses..

Madeleine McCann’s parents may use £750k in private search


   Scotland Yard’s search has just seven weeks of guaranteed funding remaining
   Kate and Gerry McCann have set aside cash raised by book on disappearance
   Madeleine vanished aged three in 2007 from apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal

The parents of Madeleine McCann have set aside almost £750,000 to fund a private search if police stop looking for their missing daughter.

The Find Madeleine Fund consists chiefly of donations and profits from mother Kate’s book on the child’s disappearance in Portugal.

The 49-year-old has made £793,516 from the bestselling Madeleine: Our daughter’s disappearance and the continuing search for her.

Kate and Gerry McCann have set aside almost £750,000 they may use to fund a private search for Madeleine

Madeleine McCann went missing from an apartment in Portugal when she was three years old in 2007

But nearly £65,000 was set aside for expenses and an unsuccessful libel battle against the Portuguese ex-detective who accused her and father Gerry, also 49, of accidentally killing their child and hiding her body, Mirror Online reports.

The couple have seven weeks of guaranteed funding left for Scotland Yard’s Operation Grange, which is set to end after an £11.3million hunt.

Family spokesman Clarence Mitchell said the Find Madeleine Fund gives the McCanns the chance to ‘pick up their own inquiries again, if they choose, with private investigators’.

Three-year-old Madeleine vanished from a Praia da Luz apartment in May 2007 as her parent ate tapas at a nearby restaurant. She would now be nearing 15 years of age.

I wish to god they'd stop using the word 'hunt'. It sounds like a ravenous bloodthirsty predator.

Second thoughts ....

Madeleine McCann's parents to mark sad milestone ahead of daughter's 18th birthday

EXCLUSIVE: Maddie McCann went missing a few days before her fourth birthday and her 18th is on May 12 - making this year's anniversary of her disappearance particularly poignant for Kate and Gerry McCann

ByMartin Fricker

15:55, 30 APR 2021UPDATED16:35, 30 APR 2021

Madeleine McCann’s parents will mark the 14th anniversary of their daughter’s disappearance with a “low-key” Bank Holiday ceremony.

Kate and Gerry McCann will attend a local church this weekend to pray for Madeleine, who disappeared in Portugal on May 3, 2007.

This year’s anniversary is particularly poignant because it comes just a week before Madeleine’s 18th birthday.

Prosecutors want to quiz Christian Brueckner over her disappearance and claim to have evidence she is dead.

But Kate and Gerry, 53, of Rothley, Leics, refuse to give up hope that Madeleine is still alive and will one day be found.

A family friend said: “Every anniversary is tough because it brings back all the memories of the night she was taken.

“But this year is different because Madeleine would be reaching adulthood.

“It’s a big milestone in every child’s life. For Kate and Gerry to not to be with her on such a momentous occasion is heartbreaking.”

The couple will spend Bank Holiday Monday - the day of the anniversary - with their teenage twins Sean and Amelie.

Scotland Yard’s hunt for Madeleine’s abductor continues, with four detectives still working on Operation Grange.

A top-level summit between German, British and Portuguese detectives is due to take place in Lisbon this summer.

The Mirror revealed in January that cops are launching a push to find what they have referred to as the “missing piece of the jigsaw” that they say could snare Brueckner.

German and Portuguese investigators are to carry out new interviews of key witnesses in the Algarve who knew him.

Brueckner, 44, was named as the prime suspect for Madeleine’s disappearance by German prosecutors last June.

He is currently serving a seven-year term in a prison in Hanover for raping a pensioner in Praia da Luz in 2005.

His lawyer Friedrich Fulscher insists the German has nothing to do with the youngster’s disappearance.

Kate and Gerry McCann will mark 14 years since their daughter disappeared this Bank Holiday weekend with a "low-key" ceremony.

Madeleine McCann disappeared in Portugal on May 3, 2007 and her parents will pray for her this weekend at a local church - a poignant moment just one week before her 18th birthday.

The heartbroken parents refuse to give up hope of finding their daughter alive despite prosecutors claiming to have evidence she is dead, reports the mirror.

Detectives also want to quiz convicted rapist Christian Brueckner over her disappearance.

They'll attend " a local church " , which one will it be ? 
Despite apparently being " devout Catholics " they seem to use any available church that'll have them ! 

That " missing piece of the jigsaw " - just a suggestion - Peter Barlow ( Coronation Street) has been devoting his time to jigsaws lately , ask him he might be able to help it's about as useful as the rest of the rubbish MSM and the " friend " are coming up with . 

Just when are detectives going to " quiz " Breukner , when they've spoken to ( and paid ) a few more of his alleged " friends " to spill a few more beans ? 

Aha , got it , it's a " bean jigsaw " !

Down the Kingdom Hall for good old bout of happy clappy.

Errant Martin the Fricker has vent his spleen over the past 24 hours.  I await with trepidation for the next, this weekend, heart wrenching write-up (your alley) from the effervescent Olive Oyl of 'The Daily Tablet'.

My money's on tomorrow!

Why didn't they have the Top Level Summit this weekend?  
They could have pulled in the FI Grand Prix in Portimão at the same time.

But perhaps the weather is not yet so good on the Atlantic coast
Cloudy and not too warm.
EXACTLY like the weather in 2007, in fact.

....................

They've been using the same mantra since the dawn of Operation Grange, every time the fictitious investigation time span nears and end, out comes the £750,000 round figure to the rescue.

Technically, it's not their money.  It's public money, the McCanns are self appointed custodians in the guise of a Limited Company.

Will this one day be investigated in it's own right?  I doubt it ....  

14 years ago they couldn't pay their own mortgage, now they have more £750,000. What have they been doing to accumulate such a large sum in such a short time?

It was indeed overcast and a bit blustery earlier today.

I am told the government decreed that traffic around Portimão was not permitted.  God knows how they hoped to achieve that.

Madeleine McCann's parents will 'never stop hoping' of finding their daughter as they face 14th anniversary of her disappearance alone as Covid cancels outdoor prayer gathering

The remembrance for Madeleine McCann has been cancelled for a second time
It would have been held at Rothley churches on her milestone 18th birthday
The then three-year-old Madeleine went missing in May 2007 in Portugal

By Tracey Kandohla and Gemma Parry For Mailonline

Published: 10:59, 2 May 2021 | Updated: 10:59, 2 May 2021

Madeleine McCann's parents say they will 'never stop hoping' to find their daughter as they face spending the 14th anniversary of her disappearance alone, according to a close relative.

Kate and Gerry McCann will remember their daughter privately after an outdoor prayer gathering was cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic.

But the couple are asking well wishers to come together remotely to remember and pray for Madeleine, just days before her milestone 18th birthday on May 12th.

Three-year-old Madeleine, known as Maddie, vanished from a holiday apartment in Portugal's Praia da Luz on May 3, 2007. She had been left sleeping alone with her younger twin siblings while her parents were dining in a nearby tapas restaurant with friends.

Maddie's great uncle Brian Kennedy has said the family have never stopped hoping.

The family usually hold gatherings to mark Maddie's birthday but, for the second time, they have had to cancel due to coronavirus.

'We have decided with the Rothley churches that once again we will not hold a general gathering at the Green, though we had been hoping to do so,' Mr Kennedy, 81, said.

'We all consider that distancing would still be a problem if the usual numbers were to attend and we wouldn't feel entirely happy about that. So each of the churches will do their own service over Sunday and Monday and make them available as widely as possible by streaming.

'It's not perfect but the important thing is to remember the day as widely as possible.'

Former GP Kate, 53 and heart doctor Gerry, 52 would normally attend the Sacred Heart Catholic church near their home with twins Sean and Amelie, now aged 16.

In the evening the family would walk a mile to the war memorial where many supporters congregate for the annual informal prayers.

A candle still burns around the clock at Cross Green as a beacon of hope for the world's most famous missing child.

The family cling onto hope that Maddie could still be alive until they can be 'shown incontrovertible evidence which proves that she is dead,' ex family spokesperson Clarence Mitchell previously said.

British cops have requested new funding to carry on the £12.5m global search for her which is set to be approved by the Home Office.

Convicted paedophile and rapist Christian B (Brueckner), 44, remains under investigation as the prime suspect in Maddie's abduction.

Madeleine McCann's parents 'hang on to hope' of seeing her again in poignant message ahead of 18th birthday

Kate and Gerry McCann said "we need to know what has happened to our lovely daughter" as they prepare to mark her birthday.

By David Mercer, news reporter

The parents of Madeleine McCann have said they "hang on to the hope" of seeing their daughter again in a poignant message ahead of her 18th birthday.

Kate and Gerry McCann said the COVID pandemic had made this year "even more difficult for many reasons" and the investigation to find Madeleine and her abductor is ongoing.

Madeleine was nearly four when she went missing from her family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, on Portugal's Algarve, on 3 May 2007.

In a statement posted on the Find Madeleine website, the McCanns said "we need to know what has happened to our lovely daughter" as they prepare to mark her 18th birthday on 12 May.

"Every May is tough - a reminder of years passed, of years together lost, or stolen," the couple from Rothley, Leicestershire, said.

"This year it is particularly poignant as we should be celebrating Madeleine's 18th birthday. Enough said.

"The COVID pandemic has made this year even more difficult for many reasons but thankfully the investigation to find Madeleine and her abductor has continued.

"We hang on to the hope, however small, that we will see Madeleine again.

"As we have said repeatedly, we need to know what has happened to our lovely daughter, no matter what. We are very grateful to the police for their continued efforts.

"We still receive so many positive words and good wishes despite the years that have gone by. It all helps and for that we are truly grateful - thank you."

A German man known as Christian B, due to the country's strict privacy laws, was identified last year as a suspect in Madeleine's disappearance.

He was convicted in 2019 of the rape of a 72-year-old woman in Portugal in 2005 at the same seaside town where Madeleine went missing.

His appeal against the rape conviction was thrown out of court in November.

Even though Christian B is a suspect in the McCann case, prosecutors have said they do not have enough evidence to hold him on that case alone.

Scotland Yard confirmed in December it has no plans to end its missing person investigation into Madeleine's disappearance, despite the belief of German prosecutors that she was murdered.

The McCanns issued a statement in June strongly denying reports they have received a letter from German authorities stating that Madeleine is dead.

The couple said the "unsubstantiated stories" had "caused unnecessary anxiety to friends and family and once again disrupted our lives".

That is VERY different from "We do not have the last vital missing piece of evidence to Charge him".


Evidence to hold is significantly lower in quantity or quality from that required to Charge.

Madeleine McCann: Parents 'hang on to hope' ahead of 18th birthday

Published 1 hour ago

Madeleine McCann's parents say they are hanging on to the hope of seeing her again as they prepare to mark her 18th birthday.

In a statement, Kate and Gerry McCann said they still need to know what happened to her, "no matter what".

Madeleine disappeared on 3 May 2007, shortly before her fourth birthday on 12 May.

People usually gather in her home village of Rothley in Leicestershire to mark the anniversary.

However, the pandemic meant this could not happen so online prayers were said instead.

Latest news and stories from the East Midlands

In their statement, Mr and Mrs McCann said: "Every May is tough - a reminder of years passed, of years together lost, or stolen.

"This year it is particularly poignant as we should be celebrating Madeleine's 18th birthday. Enough said."

They said the Covid-19 pandemic had made the year "even more difficult for many reasons", but were thankful the investigation to find Madeleine had continued.

"As we have said repeatedly, we need to know what has happened to our lovely daughter, no matter what. We are very grateful to the police for their continued efforts."
'Never give up'

The Reverend Rob Gladstone, vicar of Rothley Parish Church, asked people to continue to pray for Madeleine's family and the families of other missing children.

"In just a week's time, Madeleine will be 18, a very significant event in the life of every family, and so we want to pray especially for Gerry and Kate in the days ahead," he said.

"The family wish us to never, never, never give up, to leave no stone unturned, not to forget about Madeleine and to recognise that although still missing, she is still missed."

During the online service on Monday, he also read a poem called The Beacon, which was written by Poet Laureate Simon Armitage especially for the family.

It comes days before Madeleine's 18th birthday

This Morning viewers watched on as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield interviewed an expert on the Madeleine McCann case today (May 4).

On Tuesday’s instalment of the ITV show, the hosts sat down with former Chief Superintendent Sue Hill to discuss her disappearance.

Madeleine went missing on the evening of May 3, 2007, when she was just three-years-old.

Ahead of her 18th birthday, Holly and Phillip were given an update on the case.

Phil started: “So this investigation is known as Operation Grange. It is still an active missing persons investigation. It is not a murder investigation.

“And so, and I said there, it would have been Madeleine’s 18th birthday coming up… let’s hope, it will be. Because that is what her parents believe.”

There is no evidence Madeleine McCann is not alive

Meanwhile, Sue explained: “Well of course, I think that is what we are all hoping.

“I mean, we would love an outcome where we find Madeleine. But I think the reality is 14 years on, and it is every parent’s worst nightmare, they do not know and nobody knows where Maddie is.”

Furthermore, she shared: “Police working on the investigation, police on Operation Grange, they still refer to it as a missing persons investigation. There is no evidence Madeleine McCann is not alive.

“And you follow the evidence, you follow the intelligence.”

Later on, Sue added that she “hopes” Madeline is alive.

She continued: “We all hope don’t we that Maddie will be found alive. She is at the heart of this investigation, a little girl that’s gone but there’s no evidence.”

How did viewers react?
Meanwhile, viewers were stunned that Madeleine has been missing for so long.

One said: “14 years since Madeleine McCann went missing!”

In addition, a second wrote: “Wow! 14 years!?!”

Another added: “It’s heartbreaking that Madeleine McCann is still missing. But what about the thousands of other children who are missing, who don’t even get 1% of the funding or publicity.”

A fourth shared: “Still so shocked at how Madeleine McCann disappearing is such a mystery in this day and age.”

A fifth said: “Madeleine McCann would’ve been 18 next week. If that doesn’t make you feel old nothing will!”

Furthermore, a user tweeted: “If Madeleine McCann had been from a council estate would the investigation STILL be open with for detectives actively working the case!?

“It is a horrible thing that has happened but same has happened to other families and investigation closed.”

Madeleine went missing on the evening of May 3, 2007, in Praia da Luz, Portugal.

She was just three-years-old and has never been found.

She disappeared from her bed that evening, while her brother and sister slept.

Her parents, doctors Kate and Gerry, were at a local restaurant with their friends at the time of the disappearance.

The pair used private investigators to try and find their missing daughter.

In 2011, Scotland Yard opened their own inquiry – Operation Grange.

How can it be said that former Chief Superintendent Sue Hill is an expert on the Madeleine McCann case when she clearly ignores the documented evidence and intelligence?

How can she give an update on the case when she's not even involved?

Who's next to come forward .... join the queue! There's always a space on the Morning Show sofa.

Most definitely not funny - stupid little girl!

This girl on TikTok thinks she could be Madeleine


This girl on TikTok thinks she could be Madeleine McCann and people are *mad* at her

‘On which planet is this considered funny?’

3 hours ago Hayley Soen

Someone on TikTok has gone viral sharing a theory that she could be missing girl Madeleine McCann, and people have not found her “joke” very funny at all.

The video, which has over four million views, begins with captions which read: “My mates joke about me being Madeleine McCann.” It then goes on to claim that the girl in the video was staying in the Praia da Luz area, where three-year-old Madeleine disappeared from, at the same time as the disappearance.

The clip concludes with a picture of Madeleine, compared to a picture of her as a child – where they do like strikingly similar. Madeleine McCann has an eye condition known as a Coloboma, which is extremely rare and means she has a freckle under her pupil – it appears the girl in the TikTok video may have something similar too.

Despite the video showing a few similarities between the two girls, and beginning with it being a “joke”, people in the comments haven’t taken to it very well. Whilst some encourage the unnamed TikTok user to “get a DNA test now” and “contact Maddie’s family”, others have said it’s “sick” and asked “why would someone joke about this?”. Another comment added: “On which planet is this considered funny?”

Next week would mark Madeleine McCann’s 18th birthday, and parents Kate and Gerry have released a new statement saying they still “hang onto hope” that they will find her.

In a statement posted on the Find Madeleine website, the McCanns said: “We need to know what has happened to our lovely daughter. Every May is tough – a reminder of years passed, of years together lost, or stolen. This year it is particularly poignant as we should be celebrating Madeleine’s 18th birthday.”

The statement continued: “The COVID pandemic has made this year even more difficult for many reasons but thankfully the investigation to find Madeleine and her abductor has continued. We hang on to the hope, however small, that we will see Madeleine again.

“As we have said repeatedly, we need to know what has happened to our lovely daughter, no matter what. We are very grateful to the police for their continued efforts.We still receive so many positive words and good wishes despite the years that have gone by. It all helps and for that we are truly grateful – thank you.”

Madeleine went missing from the family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, in the Algarve, Portugal, on May 3rd 2o07.
