Day 92 - 03/08/2007 Friday
It is exactly 3 months since Madeleine was abducted. Kate and I had an early start as we drove to
over the border from Portugal
in Southern Spain. We were meant to go
yesterday but had to cancel because I was ill.
Unfortunately it was a public holiday in
and the large shopping centre we
planned to visit was closed. We did distribute posters in several garages, taxi
ranks and the bus and train stations and gave out some Madeleine wristbands.
This was definitely a worthwhile exercise, as many people did not seemingly
recognise Madeleine but we did get a very warm response from the Spanish people
we met. We would encourage everyone to continue taking posters on holiday but
please ask permission before putting them up in public places. Huelva
When we arrived back in Praia da Luz we did a couple of media interviews to building up to August 11th, which will mark 100 days if Madeleine is still missing.
There will be a lot of media activity next week reviewing Madeleine's abduction, the investigation and of course the campaign to help find her.
It is an opportunity to highlight that we have not given up hope and are still optimistic of being reunited with Madeleine.
Tonight we prayed for Madeleine at a vigil in the church. This has happened every Friday since Madeleines abduction and was very well attended tonight, probably due to the greater number of tourists in the resort
