Day 151 - 01/10/2007 Monday
Yesterday marked 150 days since Madeleine was taken. For our family it was just another painful day without our beautiful daughter. The questions we ask are pretty much the same as those we asked in the first few days. Who took her, why did they take her and where is she? Without wanting to be boringly repetitive we believe that someone out there knows something that could answer these questions.
I am still amazed at the irresponsible reporting going on in the press with unsubstantiated reports from unreliable sources being repeated in the
and Portuguese press unquestioningly. It is simply untrue that the twins think
that Madeleine has gone on a ‘little trip’. They clearly miss their big sister
and have asked on numerous occasions where is Madeleine?’. Kate I and have told
them that we don’t know where she is but lots of people are looking for her and
we hope that we will find her. They are not traumatised by her continued
absence, simply being too young to comprehend the situation but we are well
aware that their insight will change as they continue to develop rapidly. UK
At the weekend we again had lots of visitors with kids, which was great for Sean and Amelie. After attending mass yesterday morning we had a family lunch and then spent a couple of hours in the garden playing. There are still a few photographers hanging around at the end of our street taking daily pictures of Kate and I. We are managing to get out and about in the village and we have lots of support from the local community. On Saturday we decided to go for a run but drove nearby and parked the car but we were ‘snapped’ at the end, when I was certainly looking wearier than Kate!
