Thanks Pedro,

What fantastic news, and what a great ambassador, Kate will make.
Shame a few nasties don't do something worthwhile, with their lives, isn't it?


If Sean and Amelie see a sticker of Madeleine they’ll say, ‘Mummy.. they are looking for Madeleine’. It gives me strength

Mum Kate McCann becomes
ambassador for missing people




Exclusive By ANTONELLA LAZZERI
Published: 50 minutes ago
KATE McCANN will never give up on finding daughter Madeleine – and from today she is putting the same willpower into helping trace other missing children too.

She is beginning a new role as official ambassador for the UK charity Missing People and launching a massive new billboard campaign searching for the nation’s lost loved ones.

It is the first public role Kate, 44, has undertaken since Madeleine vanished days before her fourth birthday in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on May 3, 2007.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Kate said: “As the search for Madeleine goes on, I want to look at the wider picture and see what I can to do to help.

“Before Madeleine went missing I was horrifyingly ignorant about it myself. It really is much bigger than people realise.”

Kate also opened up about how much the huge public reaction to the abduction meant to her, husband Gerry and Madeleine’s brother and sister Sean and Amelie, both now seven.

She said: “I know that we have been ‘lucky’ in one way because we received such huge publicity when Madeleine went missing.



Madeleine ... who vanished in 2007

“We continue to and that really helps our search for her. But many families haven’t had that. They haven’t had their missing loved one’s face put out there.

“They haven’t had the appeals, the publicity, all the things that can lead to a child being found.

“Just having that level of public awareness can be so vital.”

However, Kate revealed that despite the international publicity about the case, even her family sometimes felt forgotten — so she can imagine other families’ pain.

The former GP, who gave up her practice after Madeleine was taken, explained: “When your child, or someone you know, goes missing, you want the whole world to stop and start looking for them.

“You feel completely helpless. There’s an initial flurry of activity then it dies down. You feel like the world has gone away and forgotten about your missing child. That’s when you really feel lost.

“As time goes on you feel as if people have started to give up on them. It’s very hard to keep the momentum going.

“But for the families, having these billboards up gives them real hope.

“They feel that people do care, that people will see their loved one and be thinking about them and looking out for them. They CAN be found.”

Kate added: “Sometimes, when I am having a low day, someone will ask me for a poster of Madeleine to display and it will give me a boost.

“If Sean and Amelie see a sticker of Madeleine on a car window they will say, ‘Oh, look Mummy — they are looking for Madeleine’.

“That gives you huge support and strength. You feel you aren’t on your own any more. To know people care is a huge help.”

For 12 weeks digital advertising space all over the UK will carry photos and information about missing people — mostly children.



Pain ... Kate with husband Gerry

Advertising space worth approximately £1million has been donated by outdoor media owners including Clear Channel, JCDecaux, Primesight and CBS Outdoor.

More than ten million people are expected to see the posters in what is the biggest co-ordinated missing persons appeal ever launched in the UK.

Kate said yesterday: “The billboard campaign will have a massive impact. It is something that has been needed for a long time.

“Initially it will be for 12 weeks but we are hoping that it will become permanent.

“Sadly, because of our experience we have learned a lot about what can help in the search for a missing person.

“There is a lot of evidence that getting a picture out there quickly is crucial.

“It is estimated that one in seven missing children are found because a vigilant member of the public has recognised their face from a poster or similar.

“In America they had the famous milk carton campaign, where pictures of missing children are carried on the side of them, which was hugely successful.”

And even years on, in cases like her own, Kate believes continual publicity can produce answers,

She said: “Having these billboards on show could prick the conscience of people who know where that person is or what has happened.

“I’ve been told by experts that you need to keep ‘pricking’ the conscience of that someone who knows.

“Keep prodding until finally that person thinks, ‘I’ve had enough’ and comes forward with information about where the missing person is.”

In her new role, Kate, from Rothley, Leics, will be speaking at events, lobbying Parliament for better funding of the charity and supporting families whose loved ones have disappeared.

She also hopes the campaign will raise public awareness of the whole issue of missing people.

She said: “It was recently revealed that in the UK a child goes missing every three minutes. That is frankly terrifying.”

Kate also wanted to help the charity to thank them for the help they have given her and her family in the five years since they last saw Madeleine on their family holiday.

Speaking about the fifth anniversary she said: “It’s been very tough, but you just have to get through it. Birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas — they don’t get any easier.

“We are really pleased with the way the Scotland Yard review is progressing, It’s in good hands.

“But what we need is for the Portuguese police to reopen the case. That is crucial.” Cops in Portugal closed the inquiry back in 2008.

Kate visited one of the new billboards, bearing the smiling face of 14-year-old Nicola Grobler, at the main entrance of the Bull Ring shopping centre in Birmingham.

Nicola went missing from her home in the city on June 7 this year.

Yesterday her mum Chantelle, 36, a legal PA, said: “Nicola went missing while I was at work. I left her at home and she seemed fine. But when I came home she had disappeared.

“The fear and helplessness is overwhelming. Every night and weekend I have been out searching for her. I spend my nights crying and praying for her. It’s been absolute hell.

“To know that now millions of people will be able to see her photo and someone might spot her is fantastic.

“It has given me such hope. I just hope it will help bring her home.”

Kate, of course, knows just how Chantelle feels.

She said: “I want people to look at this picture of Nicola and really take it in.

“Nicola and all these children could be anywhere, even hundreds of miles away from where they first went missing, and you could be the person to spot them.

“If you do, please ring the number on the bottom of the posters and billboards — 116 000 — even if you don’t want to leave your name.

“Just that one call could end a family’s misery and reunite them with their child.”

Appeals so vital

THE outdoor advertising industry feels strongly that we can make a difference for the hundreds of thousands of people whose family member is missing.

That’s why we’re donating more than £1million of digital billboard space – to help the authorities find some of the missing people whose stories are so important but too often slip under the radar.

This summer is going to be one of the busiest in British history – which means these ads will be seen by more than ten million people, in shopping centres, at train stations and on High Streets across the country.

If you recognise a missing person from one of the ads, make sure you call 116 000.



If you spot a missing person ring 116 000



YOU can also help Kate McCann’s campaign by donating to the charity Missing People.

A donation of £3 pays for a poster appeal for a missing child. And a gift of £10 pays for a volunteer to follow up a sighting.

Give £3 by texting SEARCH to 70990. Or give £10 by calling freephone 0800 MISSING (647 7464).

If you have information about Madeleine McCann ring the Find Madeleine team on 0845 838 4699, or contact the Met’s Operation Grange on 0207 321 9251.

Kate McCann launches missing people campaign

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

A_Bewick

Kate McCann is launching a nationwide campaign to find missing people.

The mother of missing Madeleine McCann is backing the campaing which will see billboards around the country publicising the cases of individuals whose whereabouts are no longer known.



Kate McCann, whose daughter Madeleine went missing in Portugal

Appeals will be launched in major cities including London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow running across rail and underground networks, on high streets and in shopping centres.

The advertisements will include details of individual missing people, creating awareness of the new number to call for sightings - 116 000 - and harnessing the public's help to join the search.

Kate McCann, a new ambassador for the charity Missing People, said: "When your child goes missing you want the whole world to stop and join the search.

"More than 250,000 people are reported missing each year in the UK - worryingly they could fill the Olympic Stadium three times over.

"Thankfully, campaigns like this can play a vital part in the search. In May, two youngsters featured in the charity's 'Big Tweet for Missing Children' were found safely.

"The search for Madeleine continues and I am delighted to lend my support as an ambassador to this practical solution that gives hope to families like mine.''

McCanns works for Missing People



TM blogger

Published: Tue, 10 Jul, 2012

Over five years ago, the McCann family had the media spotlight pointed on them for the saddest of reasons: in May 2007, the eldest child of Kate and Gerry McCann went missing at their holiday apartment in Portugal.

Madeleine was three at the time and since, her parents have painstakingly looked for answers, but now Madeleine's mother Kate is helping support the search for all missing children in the UK. As an ambassador for Missing People, Kate is here to talk about the new campaign she hopes will stop families going through the same heartache she's had to deal with.

A great achievement for all who got this campaign off the ground. Kate now has a role for life whatever the outcome of the Maddie investigation and she will be a superb ambassador. If this was her first solo interview for it she did brilliantly. I know she suffers a lot from innate shyness and always has Gerry by her side so another big step forward for her.
I did have a gut reation when the Stephen Birch discovery was raised. I saw how she flinched at the question. Her reply was interesting. I believe she has been very well briefed to make light of it. "Who is this person? There is no credibility to it". To me it seemed more like a practiced well rehearsed reply. How can anyone say with absolute certainty that there is "no credibility" to it until that site has been properly investigated. Unless of course they know where else Maddie is? But I guess we are never allowed to know what's really happening behind the scenes.

Well Rosemary,

Just the mention of him being involved with Bennetts lot, was enough for me.
He's just another wannabe, who nicked an anti's hard work Laffin Laffin

They are shrieking about it, cos it was supposedly Rip Van Winkles work (wrong name but it might as well be).

Levy, seems to have had a hand in it too, that creep can't lie straight in bed! hitthefan

Pedro with all due respect I am beginning to find your cultural and linguistical misunderstandings rather trying.

You may not realise it but every interviwer that intervews somebody on a TV programme will run through a series of questions beforehand. It is a common and necessary common rule. Also Kate and Gerry are always "briefed" before the interview by lawyers and advisers both friends and PRelations. They knew this question about Birch would come up and they decided not to forbid it, which is their right legally to be able to do. Hence my reference to being "rehearsed". It is normal procedure and was not meant by me to imply any sinister behaviour on the part of Kate. Who do you think I am Pedro? Some anti Maccann troll? Cool it Pedro.

Christobel where did you see these links with Bennett? I have no knowledge of these statements. If this is fact it is worrying.

Christabel, as Rosemary says, how did you know about a link between Birch and Bennett?

Rosemary, on the answer about Birch,I agree that Kate would have been briefed prior to the interview, as it is an obvious question that was always going to be asked. And her answer is most likely from the police, after all, even if Birch's findings were legit, they wouldnt want to broadcast it, so that type of answer is the only one that can be given.
