Claudia Lawrence's mum Joan: Why we should keep searching for Maddie
CLAUDIA LAWRENCE’S MUM JOAN ON WHY WE SHOULD KEEP FUNDING THE SEARCH FOR MADDIE
I don't think you can put a price on a child's life
– Joan Lawrence
For ten years the case of missing Madeleine McCann has shocked, puzzled and divided the public like no other. Her disappearance sparked one of the most high-profile, and costly, police investigations of recent times with more than eleven million pounds spent so far. The fund was due to run out this weekend, but after a request from the McCanns for more money, Scotland Yard have given an additional £154,000 to keep the search going.
Claudia Lawrence's mum Joan thinks the search should continue to be funded, but as police will give no details of the lead - nor why it is proving so difficult to resolve, we ask is it time to move on and close the case once and for all?
