Law officials said they were astonished that Jaycee turned up safe and well. Local chief assistant district attorney Bill Clark said: "It's a pretty spectacular story to find someone like that - someone we assumed was dead."
Clarence Mitchell, spokesman for Kate and Gerry McCann, said it gave hope that one day daughter Madeleine, snatched in Portugal in 2007, could be found safe and well.
He said: "They are extremely pleased. It strengthens their determination never to stop looking for Madeleine."
(Notice that Clarence jumps on this passing bandwagon to spin the McCanns fairytale again and not a word about Jaycee or the 'situation she found herself in'. Plus, Barrister Michael Shrimpton reckons the McCanns know that Madeleine was killed by lethal injection in December 2008 so there's not much chance of finding her alive and well then is there? No need for any more fundraising by Team McCann, either, if Michael Shrimpton, a national security lawyer, is correct. What a load of baloney on all fronts if you don't mind me saying so.)

Fritzl and McCann - worth reading again.
Kate and Gerry had taken hope from the case of Elisabeth Fritzl, the Austrian woman whose father locked her in a cellar beneath his house for 24 years, and fathered seven children with her, said Gerry McCann.
Gerry McCann said their ordeal since May 3 had been "almost unbearable", but that they had been helped through by their young twins, Sean and Amelie.
