"Imagine being Madeleine in a pitch black room, in a foreign country crying out for your parents who are out on the piss every night."

THE parents of missing Madeleine McCann have posted a poignant internet appeal for information - urging readers: "Imagine if she was your child."

(Yes, imagine if she was your child, would you refuse to answer the 48 questions put to you by the police? Would you refuse to take part in the official police reconstruction or allow the investigation to be shelved when you had the opportunity to request it stayed open?)

Determined Kate and Gerry, both 41, placed the message alongside others on the findmadeleine.com website.

Appearing beside two pictures of the vanished girl, the wording reads: "Imagine if she was your child, imagine the pain and grief, imagine if someone like you never came forward."

Another appeal says: "A little girl stolen, a family torn apart, but saying nothing is the worst crime of all."

Yet another says: "If you stay quiet you are as guilty as those who took her."


The messages are part of an initiative by Kate and Gerry, from Rothley, Leics, to reinvigorate the search (more can be seen here).

A different message appears every time you click on the site.

A statement from Kate and Gerry says: "There is absolutely nothing to suggest that Madeleine has been harmed."

Absolutely nothing to suggest Madeleine has been harmed...

...if you discount the blood, bodily fluids and death scent.
