Is this proof Madeleine McCann will soon be found?
After fourteen years, Madeleine McCann’s parents remain hopeful that their daughter will soon be found. In 2007, Madeleine was only three-years-old when she was kidnapped from her bed at a Portugal resort. After all these years, could Madeleine possibly still be found alive?
Well, after a recent Australian case was solved after a missing girl was found, Madeleine’s parents received newfound optimism. Meanwhile, German police discover new leads in the investigation of their main suspect, Christian B.
Australian girl found alive after eighteen days
A source close to the McCann family shared that the McCann’s were following the missing case of Cleo Smith and dearly hoping that she would be found alive & well.
The source detailed, “Kate and Gerry knew about the case which has had a lot of publicity here and like many people were willing the child to be found safe and well. It’s the news every parent of a missing child hopes and prays for no matter how long it has been.”
They added, “They are thankful that she had been found, and share her parents’ joy and relief at the outcome.”
Cleo, who was allegedly kidnapped by a stranger, was rescued by police in a 1 a.m. search following a sudden tip. Cops in Australia have arrested a 36-year-old man in connection with her disappearance, who has no connection with her family.
The young girl was found in a stranger’s house in Carnarvon in Western Australia – forty-seven miles from Blowhills Campsite where she had disappeared on October 16th. The rescued child’s mother, Ellie Smith, said that her “family is whole again.”
Missing boy in China found after twenty-four years
The peaceful closure of Cleo’s case comes after the McCann family was given renewed faith for their lost daughter after a boy kidnapped in China was reunited with his family. The child had been missing for nearly twenty-four years.
Madeleine McCann’s parents swore to “never give up” on finding Maddie after Guo Xinzhen, who was abducted at age two by human traffickers near his home in Shandong province in 1997, was found.
Madeleine would be eighteen years old now. When she was kidnapped, the three-year-old was only nine days away from her fourth birthday. The family source added, “Kidnapped children can be found, this case is proof and gives Kate and Gerry and all those other families of missing people hope. They never stop hoping for that happy and positive news.”
The couple from Rothley, Leicestershire, wrote in May that they “hang onto hope however small” that they will one day be reunited with their daughter. The parents were also remembering the fourteenth anniversary of her disappearance.
They posted, “Every May is tough – a reminder of years passed, of years together lost, or stolen. This year it is particularly poignant as we should be celebrating Madeleine’s 18th birthday.”
Main suspect, Christian B.
Convicted pedophile & rapist Christian B., 44, remains under investigation as the prime suspect in Madeleine’s abduction.
British authorities have requested new funding to continue the £12.5 million global search for her which is set to be approved by the Home Office.
Meanwhile, German investigators report that they have been given new leads into the suspect’s background which could benefit the case. New hope has been found for solving the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
A source close to the case said, “Police in Germany have obtained new details which relate to the period in the late 1990s and early 2000’s when Christian B. lived in Germany and the Algarve.”
“The police believe this new information could prove significant in shaping the future direction of the probe and will be looking to liaise with colleagues in the Algarve over it. The police remain convinced someone, somewhere knows more about this man and his links to Maddie. They implore them to come forward.”
