Maidstone mum, Debbie Butler, in justice campaign for Madeleine McCann

by Helen Fairley

A Maidstone woman is leafleting homes across the UK to try and get the investigation into Madeleine McCann’s disappearance re-opened.

Mum of two Debbie Butler, 45, is the chairman of the Madeleine Foundation, a group set up in July 2008 to call for justice for the missing youngster.

Madeleine McCann went missing from her family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal on May 3, 2007 while her parents and friends dined near by.

The foundation has caused controversy by distributing a leaflet, which gives “10 key reasons which suggest she (Madeleine) was not abducted” in the Leicestershire street where Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry McCann live.

Ms Butler denied targeting the McCann’s and said the information in the leaflet had come from the police reports into the disappearance.

She said: “I just want the information to be in the public domain.

“I am compelled to continue until I get justice for this little girl.”
