12th Anniversary of Madeleine’s Abduction (3rd May 2019)

It’s that time of year again. As much as we’d like to fast forward the first couple of weeks of May, there’s no getting around it.

The months and years roll by too quickly; Madeleine will be sixteen this month. It’s impossible to put into words just how that makes us feel. There is comfort and reassurance though in knowing that the investigation continues and many people around the world remain vigilant.

Thank you to everyone who continues to support us and for your ongoing hope and belief.

For as long as it takes…………………

Statement by Kate and Gerry McCann regarding Netflix programme “The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann”


‘We are aware that Netflix are planning to screen a documentary in March 2019 about Madeleine’s disappearance. The production company told us that they were making the documentary and asked us to participate. We did not see and still do not see how this programme will help the search for Madeleine and, particularly given there is an active police investigation, could potentially hinder it.

Consequently, our views and preferences are not reflected in the programme.

We will not be making any further statements or giving interviews regarding this programme.’

Gerry and Kate McCann

End of Statement

Christmas 2018

We couldn’t let a Christmas go by without passing on a warm ‘thank you’ to all our supporters for the kind and continuing good wishes, especially at this very busy time of year.

We miss Madeleine dearly. Christmas will never be the same without her, but we will continue to make the best of what we have. 

The investigation is ongoing and our hope remains. 

May 2019 be a peaceful and positive one for us all.

Thank you.

Kate & Gerry

May 2018 – 11th Anniversary of Madeleine’s Abduction

It gets harder to know what to say or write as each anniversary of Madeleine’s abduction approaches then passes. Life is full and busy which helps but Madeleine is still missing and she is still dearly missed. Information continues to come in (incredible as it may seem after so long, although we are grateful for that) and work goes on. Perseverance and hope remain.

Thank you to everyone who continues to support us and wish us, especially Madeleine, well. After eleven years such warmth and persisting solidarity is truly remarkable, and at the same time a real tonic and boost to our spirit. We couldn’t bear for Madeleine to be forgotten or to become just a ‘story’. She is a real person and still our ‘little girl’ and as we always have, we will endeavour to do whatever it takes to find her. Thank you so much for staying with us on this mission.

Kate and Gerry
