The parents of Madeleine McCann have said the search for their daughter continues with “unwavering commitment”, in a Christmas message to their supporters.
Kate and Gerry McCann posted the message on social media as they face their 13th Christmas without their daughter, who vanished aged three while the family were on holiday in Portugal in May 2007.
The message, on the official Find Madeleine Facebook page, said “nothing has changed”.
It added: “We love her, we miss her, we hope as always.The search for Madeleine goes on with unwavering commitment”
“Thank you to all our supporters for your steadfastness and compassion this year again and your warm Christmas wishes.”
Scotland Yard launched an investigation, Operation Grange, into her disappearance in 2013 after a Portuguese inquiry failed to bring any light on the missing little girl.
Up to this point the investigation has cost £11.75 million with the Home Office having granted to fund the hunt for Madeleine until at least March next year when they will make another review.
