MERRY CHRISTMAS to all our supporters. Your compassion and help has once again
spurred us on through another year and never fails to astound us.
We really appreciate
how lucky we are to have such amazing support behind us. Thank you.
It is our 9th
Christmas without Madeleine. As always, she is very much on our mind and in our
hearts and Christmas preparations. We have not lost hope that we may get to
celebrate another Christmas with her. If anything can drive us on, that most
This year has blown
over so quickly. Life is very busy, which is probably a good thing, but it does
mean the months don’t seem to last long! Thankfully, the police investigation
has made progress over the year. Whilst it is never as much or as speedy as we,
or the police would like, we are moving in the right direction and that’s the
positive. Patience and perseverance are virtues which we’ve acquired in
abundance over recent years - another positive!
2015 has also been a
full and successful year for the charity ‘Missing People’ which is great news
for many of those missing and their families too. I loved taking part in the
charity’s ‘500 mile Cycle Challenge’ in June and would encourage anyone who is
interested to give it a go next year. It is such a fulfilling and worthwhile
experience on many levels and it really makes a difference for missing loved
ones and their families. Thank you for all the support given to the charity
Thank you also for
all the lovely Christmas cards we’ve received. It gives us a lot of pleasure
and comfort to sit down together and share your kind messages, with the
reassurance that Madeleine has not been forgotten.
And so a new year
approaches….new energy, new opportunities, new hope.
Wishing you all a
very happy, healthy and peaceful 2016.
We would like to thank all the staff from Operation Grange for the
meticulous and painstaking work that they have carried out over the last four
and a half years.
The scale and difficulty of their task has never been in doubt. We
are reassured that the investigation to find Madeleine has been significantly
progressed and the MPS has a much clearer picture of the events in PDL leading
up to Madeleine’s abduction in 2007.
Given that the review phase of the investigation is essentially
completed, we fully understand the reasons why the team is being reduced. We
would also like to thank the Home Office for continuing to support the
Whilst we do not know what happened to Madeleine, we remain hopeful
that she may still be found given the ongoing lines of enquiry.
