She disappeared in Portugal two weeks later.The father of missing girl Madeleine McCann has said he and his wife are pleased with the progress being made in Scotland Yard’s review of the search for her.Gerry McCann told Sky News today thathe and his wife Kate were “very pleased with the work of the Metropolitan Police both during the review process and now that they have moved into an investigatory phrase.”Gerry – whose family are from Donegal and who still visits here regularly – went on: “I think that is all that any parent would want when their child is missing. “They’ve uncovered new evidence and we hope that the appeals that go out next week will lead to further new evidence that helps fill in pieces of the jigsaw and moves at least a step closer to finding Madeleine and those responsible.”The disappearance of Madeleine will be the subject of a Crimewatch appeal on BBC1 next Monday.Scotland Yard assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said it is hoped it will produce new witnesses, but a conclusion to the case “is not imminent”.Mr McCann said he and his wife were disturbed by some press reports in recent days on his daughter’s case which were published without any regard for Madeleine’s safety. The McCanns visited Donegal just weeks before Madeleine disappeared in Portugal in May 2007. MADELEINE INVESTIGATION MAKING PROGRESS, SAYS DAD GERRY was last modified: October 7th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
