Our friends brought back my wallet […]

Day 56 – 28/06/2007 – Thursday

Busy day- some very good phone calls with important child welfare organsations who we will be working closely with in the future. I have no doubt we will be able to sustain a high profile for Madeleines disappearance in the long term. There has been a lot of media publicity over arrests in Spain tonight […]

Kate and I would like to emphasise that if anyone who thinks they have information relevant to Madeleine‚Äôs abduction, then please pass this on to your local police.

Met with the Portuguese and British police for an update on the investigation. We raised the question of what someone should do if they think they see Madeleine.
