In May of 2007, Madeleine McCann went missing from her hotel bedroom in Portugal while her 2-year-old twin siblings slept nearby. She was believed to have been abducted while her parents dined at a nearby restaurant.
A forensic artist has produced, based apparently on photos of her parents at a similar age, a new image of what Madeleine McCann would look like on the second anniversary of her disappearance. After spending millions of dollars for search efforts and numerous sightings, she remains missing.
On Monday, May 4, Oprah will talk to Kate and Gerry McCann in their first interview in America since the disappearance of their daughter Madeleine.
Since May 3, 2007, when then-4-year-old Madeleine disappeared from the family’s vacation apartment in Portugal, there have been alleged sightings of the missing child, but none have been confirmed. For the first time, Oprah Show viewers will see a remarkable age progression that reveals what Madeleine might look like today.
