The parents of Madeleine McCann say hopes of finding her have been reinforced by the recent discovery of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight in Ohio, a decade after they went missing in separate incidents.
When the women were found, the McCanns said the rescue of the women "reaffirmed" their hope of finding their daughter, which had never diminished.
Their recovery is also further evidence that children are sometimes abducted and kept for long periods.
So we ask the public to remain vigilant in the ongoing search for Madeleine.
