Things have really died down for the McCann’s recently. Appeal posters are being torn down in Portugal, the world wide news coverage has died down, and the hope that remained with many people has vanished just like she did over 8 months ago.
The few news reports that are still appearing talk about a new appeal for 2008, and new leads etc – But lets face it. We’re talking about a little girl thats been missing 8 whole months. Im sure that by now everyone in the world knows she’s missing, and if anyone was going to of seen her, then it would of happend by now.
I realise that some cases do emerge where kids that go missing turn up years later – but that was then, and this is now. With the modern technology that is available, every news update on everything that is going off at the minute is beamed to everyone round the world at the same time. News travels faster than ANYTHING in the entire world. And if someone spots a missing person, that information gets to the people that need to know about it in seconds.
As i have said with all my blogs, its a real shame – and the parents and family can never give up the search, which is totally understandable. But, it appears that slowly the rest of the world is giving up hope of ever seeing Madeleine McCann alive again.
Back to you in the newsroom..
