Sunday 12 May 2013


Since becoming a parent I find news of missing children more heart-breaking than ever.  Personally when I hear news of a missing child my only concern is the missing child.  I offer my support by spreading the news.

I have decided to take part in the #blogging4madeleine campaign this year to not only write about missing Madeleine McCann but to also highlight the fact that there are thousands of children missing in the UK with at least hundreds of thousands of children missing across the whole World.

Madeleine was 3 years old when she went missing from Praia da Luz, Portugal on Thursday 3rd May 2007.

6 years on Madeleine is still missing.

Today the 12th May 2013 is Madeleine’s 10th birthday.

Shockingly in the UK a child is reported missing every 3 minutes!

It is not just Madeleine who is missing. 

Another high profile case is the missing case of Ben Needham, a 21 month old British toddler who went missing on the Greek island of Kos in July 1991.

There are many (too many) other high profile missing children cases and thousands of missing children who are not in the spotlight but who are also missing.  We need to remember about and hope for the hundreds of thousands of children who appear to have vanished.  We need to keep missing children in the spotlight, continue to search and hold on to hope.

To report any sighting or information about Madeleine McCann  please –

*  Contact your local police force AND +44 845 838 4699 or
*  Or contact Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111 or
