THE parents of Madeleine McCann are planning to give a rare television interview to make a fresh appeal for information which they hope could lead to her being found.
Kate and Gerry McCann are also considering flying out to Portugal in the coming weeks to boost their renewed efforts there for a breakthrough in the run-up to the second anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance on May 3.
A source close to the couple said: “Discussions are taking place now to work out what to do for the anniversary. One idea is for a television appeal from one or both of them.”
As part of the new drive, 10,000 leaflets will be handed out to people who live on the Algarve in the coming weeks and large posters have also been put up.
Kate and Gerry have also updated their website with a new heartfelt message. They said: “Can you imagine a little girl or boy out there, hoping and waiting to be found but for people then to write them off, forget about them, just because there’s been no ‘news’?
“We urge you to remember Madeleine as a real, living and
Their missing daughter was very much in their thoughts when the couple celebrated Mother’s Day with their other children, twins Amelie and Sean, both three, at a church service last weekend near their home in Rothley, Leicestershire. Amelie, who bares a striking resemblance to Madeleine, clapsed her sister’s favourite Cuddle Cat toy tightly in her hand throughout the service.
For Kate, who looked happy and relaxed, it was her second Mother’s Day without Madeleine, now five. Web-users around the world still pay tribute to Madeleine who vanished from a holiday flat in Praia da Luz while her parents dined nearby.
They continue to post their own messages on YouTube with pictures of Madeleine. The couple’s spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: “What goes on the internet has not been sanctioned by Kate and Gerry. We just hope that anything about Madeleine is supportive and genuine.”

Have your say IS available from the 3 Arguidos because Clarence Mitchell doesn't control it yet:
"All of this, of course, presupposes that Madeleine won't be found prior to the anniversary of her disappearance.
Why publicize these actions more than a month ahead of the event?
BECAUSE THEY KNOW SHE WILL NOT BE FOUND.
They land themselves in it every time."
"Perhaps this whole poster debacle is a cover for a trip they must make? You know after Gerry's visit. Instead of them both trying to sneak in and out without being spotted."
"well we won't hold our breathe on the visit..which leads to the question ..Then why not do a reconstruction???"
This is shocking if true. They are now using Amelie 'clutching cuddlecat' with that stinky death smell. Ewww!
