Kate McCann keeps on running


Kate McCann, the mother who'll never start searching for her missing daughter Madeleine, took time out yesterday from being a depressed, traumatised wreck because of Amaral's book to pull off another cunning PR stunt in response to Sofia Leal's interview. more mugshots here.

It has been a long hard road for Kate McCann over the last two years.

But the 41-year-old mother of three showed a different kind of endurance yesterday to complete a two-mile fun run.

Last week she returned to Portugal for the first time since her daughter Madeleine's disappearance in 2007.

After a visit in which she and husband Gerry searched for the secret lair in a lawless village in Praia da Luz met with lawyers and the local media, she was back in Leicestershire to join 800 competitors for the Great Kibworth charity run.

She ran in a vest emblazoned with a picture of Madeleine, who would now be six.


During her Portugal visit Mrs McCann told reporters she cried every day for her daughter and remains determined to 'find her and bring her home'.
Later, speaking about the visit, she said: 'I think it was a positive move and it actually felt good to be there.
'I actually felt there was a bit of support for us there now so that helps. Fingers crossed this is the turning point.
'We’ve had a lot of information come in even this far down the line, which means we don't really need to sue Amaral although we will cos we want his money more than we want to find Margaret there are various reasons why they don’t come forward in the early days.
'We just need to keep going, just need to get more information and hope we get the bit we need really.'
Mrs McCann has continued her passion for jogging despite the strain of coping with the Madeleine investigation and she was one of around 800 competitors in the Great Kibworth run.
