6 years ago the horrible news emerged on television about a 3 year of girl, Madeleine McCann, who had gone missing from her bed in Praia Da Luz, Portugal on Thursday May 3rd 2007
Kate and Gerry McCann, her parents, were out in the complex restaurant having a bite to eat and were regularly popping back to check on their children. During one of these trips back that they discovered Madeleine was gone. No where to be found.
This was one of the most high profile cases of recent times and even though international appeals and hundreds, maybe even thousands of sightings have been logged, Madeleine is still missing.
Despite extensive searches and high profile international appeals Madeleine has never been found and no one knows what happened to Madeleine on that fateful Thursday evening on 3rd May 6 years ago.
Today is the 10th birthday of Madeleine McCann and so to help raise awareness and to let people know that the search will never be over until Madeleine is found, Britmums and a range of bloggers are coming together to write about her and to tell people that she is still missing using the tag #blogging4madeleine. 6 years she has been gone from her family, 6 years!
I really couldn't begin to imagine the pain that Kate and Gerry are going through.
Only we, the public, can help keep the search going. Have you seen Madeleine?
This photo is what is thought Madeleine will look like now.
