Madeleine McCann's anguished parents prayed for their missing daughter yesterday as they prepared to mark the third anniversary of her disappearance.

Kate and Gerry McCann attended a Mass at their local church with their five-year-old twins Sean and Amelie, ahead of today's sad anniversary.

The couple released new family photographs of Madeleine at the weekend, showing the three-year-old playing at dressing up in blue eyeshadow and a pink hairband.

Mrs McCann, 42, clasped hands with her twins as they walked to church in their home town of Rothley, Leicestershire.

The family wore yellow and green 'Find Madeleine' wristbands and released a short film on their website, showing their ongoing search for the missing schoolgirl.

Mr McCann, 41, and his wife looked drained as they prepared to face today's anniversary, which they have said they will mark in private.

Madeleine vanished during a family holiday in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz, on May 3, 2007.

Her parents believe she was abducted from their rented holiday apartment while they ate dinner with friends at a nearby restaurant.

They told last week how they had explained Madeleine's disappearance to her brother and sister, telling the youngsters that a 'naughty man' stole the schoolgirl.

Police forces around the world have followed up thousands of leads and possible sightings of the little girl, but there have been no confirmed sightings since her disappearance.

The McCanns travelled back to Portugal last week to ask police to reopen their investigation, which was shelved in July 2008, when the couple were formally cleared as suspects.

The couple have spearheaded a high-profile search to find their daughter, but have told of their frustration that no police force is actively looking for Madeleine.

In a poignant message to her daughter, Mrs McCann said: 'We love you very much, Madeleine, and we're not going to stop what we're doing.'

Really! Really the McCann's should stop blaming the Portuguese and UK police for not finding their daughter.
They should remember it was entirely their actions that allowed their daughter to be abducted.
They should stop hassling the police and give attention and time to their other children.

maybe they should have stayed with their children, that's what a lot of normal people do.

The McCann's must let go with this obsession for their missing daughter.

They should concentrate every energy on their twins or they could quite easily start to suffer mentally as they grow older.

Had the McCann's not put pleasure above the safety of their children they would still be a full family. They are fortunate that they still have the twins as they could easily have disappeared at the same time.

As sad as it is the McCann's cannot expect police forces to drop everything and concentrate on this one case. One gets the distinct impression that this is what they expect.

Their daughter is one of 100's missing and they should be very appreciative of just what amount of time the police have spent on the case compared possibly to others.

Not agaIn!

Remind me, who left three small children alone in the dark in an insecure foreign apartment for hours at a time night after night till in the end one disappeared?

When are we going to hear the last of the McCanns? Other children disappear without interantional campaigns being started and millions raised for and spent on unsuccessful searches; what makes this one child so different?

We would not be at this point if the two Doctors McCann had not persistently, night after night, left their three little toddlers alone in an unlocked apartment while they went off eating & drinking with friends over 100 metres away.

I believe that the McCanns are still in denial over this, and are suffering from guilt. They seem to have blamed and be blaming everyone but themselves.

It is a deeply tragic case. My thoughts and prayers are with Madeleine, wherever she may be.
