Why Madeleine's parents do not lose hope

There are a number of cases of missing children and adolescents and found alive years later

Four years after the disappearance of little Madeleine McCann, Scotland Yard said there is a possibility of the girl alive. The British asked the Portuguese police to reopen investigations into the story. A breath of hope for Gerry and Kate McCann, parents of the girl? Maybe. There are cases of missing children and adolescents and found alive years later - although many of them have gone through tragic moments (see table below).

Madeleine was 5 years old when he disappeared during a trip to Portugal with his parents - today, she was 9 years old. Even the Scotland Yard inspector, Andy Redwood, gave hope to the family last week. "There are rare cases of young men abducted and found some time later," he said. "And we can not rule out that Madeleine was abducted by a stranger."

Regardless of the relief of the family, the possible return of Maddie can also represent the resumption of a painful cycle of anxiety for the McCanns. "The real possibility of reunion can act as a new stress factor," says psychologist Denise Diniz, coordinator of the Center for Quality of Life and Stress Control UNIFESP. "Even more because the situation Jé messed with the identity of the nuclear family."

For Denise, the "mourning without a body," or the disappearance of a loved one for an indefinite period may be even more painful than death of the person. "It's sad, but fundamental to bury our dead. When the family goes through the stress of losing a relative to the unknown, shall live in a constant vigil, a hope that can generate much anxiety and an exaggerated expectation," he says.

Remembering of children who disappeared and reappeared years later:
