Missing Maddie – Parents Prepare to Return to UK
Posted by cotojo on September 3, 2007
The parents of missing Madeleine McCann have said that they will sue a Portugese newspaper for publishing a claim that she died after they accidentally gave her too many sedatives.
Chief Inspector Olegario Sousa has also confirmed that Kate and Gerry McCann are not suspects and has no idea where the press got its information.
Maddie’s father has also made a plea to the abductor to return their daughter saying that it wasn’t too late to do the right thing. The plea was made as the family started to make preparations to return home to the UK without their daughter. They feel that they must now make life as normal as possible for their 2 year old twins, Sean and Amelie.
The school that Maddie should have started classes at last week has kept a desk ready in the hope that she will be there one day to attend. They have also kept a coat peg and locker to one side for her. Pupils at the school said a prayer for her safe return and a candle is kept burning there for her.
French police have been searching a campsite in the Loire Valley after reports of a girl matching Maddie’s description was spotted near Tours.
Police were called after a man arrived at the site with three children after booking for only two. It is believed that the man drove away after the alarm was raised.
