After launching an international campaign, raising millions of dollars and worldwide attention to find their missing daughter Madeleine, Gerry and Kate McCann are turning their focus back to Portugal.
An investigation by Portuguese police failed to find Madeleine McCann
Madeleine McCann’s parents are to launch a high-intensity new appeal for information tightly focused on the area where she went missing.
Over the next two weeks 10,000 leaflets in Portuguese will be handed out and posted in letterboxes in Praia da Luz, Lagos and Burgau in southern Portugal.
The campaign will also advertise on billboards, three buses and a van.
Madeleine, of Rothley, Leicestershire, vanished from a holiday flat in Praia da Luz, in the Algarve, on 3 May 2007.
A similar action took place in the case of Missing Jaliek Rainwalker but it wasn’t by disgruntled citizens.
Update 03-30-09: In nearby Spain, Mayor won’t help search for missing teen Amy
Dubliner Audrey (40) walked out of a meeting with the official in tears after he told her the credit crunch meant he could not get involved in putting up posters of Amy.
Venting her anger yesterday she said: “I felt furious when I walked out of the meeting and I still feel angry. We’ve lived in Spain for five years, we’ve bought a home here, Amy grew up here and this is where she disappeared from.
“I wasn’t asking for the world, just a few posters to put at bus stops and maybe the local bus station so people would see Amy’s face.”
