Lighting up the sky with lanterns at Formby FC for Madeleine McCann - 1000 days after she went missing.

Madeleine McCann remembered at Formby FC.

Tomorrow will be another landmark day in the search for Madeleine McCann - another chance of raise awareness and keep the missing girl in people´s thoughs.

Madeleine will now be six.

1000 lanterns will be released at locations across the UK by friends and supporters of the McCanns tomorrow at 7.30pm.

Among the locations will be Rothley, at Merseyside, Formby FC on Altcar Road, Formby, where 250 lanterns will light up the Merseyside sky.

A club official says the gates will be open at 7pm and parking will be available at and around the ground.

"The message is for people not to give up on Madeleine", says Mrs. McCann´s mum.

Madeleine´s name continues to be mentioned each and every week during the "children´s service" which takes place at 10 am on Sunday at Our Lady of the Annunciation, Bishop Eton, in Woolton Road, Childwall.

Meanwhile, on her website www.findmadeleine.com under the heading "Why we continue", Kate and Gerry stress:

"There is absolutely nothing to suggest that Madeleine has been harmed".

Lighting up the sky with lanterns at Formby Football Club for Madeleine McCann - 1,000 days after she went missing
Jan 26 2010 by Paddy Shennan, Liverpool Echo

TOMORROW will be another landmark day in the search for Madeleine McCann – another chance to raise awareness and keep the missing girl in people’s thoughts.
It will be 1,000 days since the then three-year-old – she will now be six – disappeared while on holiday in Portugal with her parents, Kate and Gerry, and her brother and sister, twins S*** and A*****.
Millions of words have been written and so much seems to have happened since May 3, 2007 – but, in essence, nothing has happened and nothing has changed.
Madeleine McCann went missing on that date – and she’s still missing.
To mark that cold, cruel fact, 1,000 lanterns will be released at locations across the UK by friends, family and supporters of the McCanns at 7.30pm tomorrow.
Among the locations will be Rothley in Leicestershire, where Kate and Gerry live, and, here in Merseyside, Formby Football Club on Altcar Road, Formby, where 250 lanterns will light up the Merseyside sky.
A club official says the gates will be open by 7pm and parking will be available at and around the ground.
Kate’s mum and dad, Susan and Brian Healy, live in Allerton, and Susan reveals: “We were going to use Mossley Hill Athletics Club, but are not able to because lanterns can be a problem if they are released close to the airport.
“The nearest alternatives were Formby and St Helens and Kate has also got friends in Formby so we decided to do it there.”
While Kate and Gerry will be hosting a dinner in London tomorrow evening to raise funds for the ongoing search for their daughter, Susan and Brian will be in Formby – although those Merseysiders unable to get there are being invited to show their support and solidarity in their own homes.
“The message is for people not to give up on Madeleine,” says Susan.
“It’s sad that it’s a school day and that many children from this area won’t be able to get to Formby, but people can mark the 1,000 days in other ways.
“They don’t need lanterns – they can simply think about Madeleine and have a quiet time of reflection in their own homes.
“Kate will be at her fundraising night in London – God love her, she’s worked so hard on that – but there will also be a lantern release in Rothley.”
While many people around the world will still have a fixed image of Madeleine in their minds – taken before she went missing – we are reminded of the onward march of time by the fact that Kate and Gerry’s twins, S*** and A*****, will be five on February 1, while Madeleine herself will be seven on May 12.
As we have said before in the ECHO, the future tense is important because, despite the time that has passed, there is no proof the past tense is needed.
Madeleine’s name continues to be mentioned each and every week during the “children’s service” which takes place at 10am on Sundays at Our Lady of the Annunciation, Bishop Eton, in Woolton Road, Childwall.
Meanwhile, on their website, findmadeleine.com, under the heading “Why do we continue?”, Kate and Gerry stress:
“There is absolutely nothing to suggest that Madeleine has been harmed.
“Madeleine is still missing and someone needs to be looking for her.
“She is very young and vulnerable and needs our help.
“We love her dearly and miss her beyond words.”
