We hope and pray that they come home safely. We are very glad to be supporting the charity Missing People once more, and helping them to continue to be a lifeline when someone disappears.

Madeleine McCann's parents have completed a 10 kilometre run in aid of a missing people's charity.

The were joined by hundreds of families and friends of other missing people.

Kate McCann, whose daughter vanished while on a family holiday in Portugal almost four years ago, said: "We are running this year to remember our Madeleine and all children who are missing."

She added: "We hope and pray that they come home safely.

"We are very glad to be supporting the charity Missing People once more and helping them continue to be a lifeline when someone disappears."

The pair were joined by others in London's Regent's Park including Peter Lawrence, father of missing York chef Claudia Lawrence and Rachel Elias, sister of rock star Richey Edwards, rhythm guitarist and co-lyricist of the Manic Street Preachers.

Mrs McCann applauded the charity for the help and key advice it provides when the state cannot.

She said burglary victims might get help from the state, but added: "If your child goes missing or a family member goes missing sometimes you might not get anything."

Her husband Gerry said families of the missing provided a support network for one another and played a part in helping each other recover.

He said: "Although you don't think you could ever carry on, actually, eventually you start to get some normality."

Transcript

By Nigel Moore

Laura Harding [voice over]: [Horn sounds for start of race] The parents of missing Madeleine McCann set off on a charity run.

Kate and Gerry were joined by hundreds of families and friends of other missing people.

Kate McCann: Missing people, as a whole, errm... can be forgotten quite easily. I think because they're not here to be seen, they're not here to be heard, errm... you know, it's important to... to remind everybody really, errm... that they are still missing and they need... do need to be found and the families also need support.

Gerry McCann: I think one of the most important things is speaking to other families and knowing that all the emotions and feelings that you're going through are exactly the same as another family and that, I think, errr... in those who first have a problem knowing that there is a recovery phase and although you don't think you could ever carry on with your life that actually, eventually, you know, you start to get some sort of normality, errm... you... you don't...

Kate McCann: And there's a mutual understanding really, isn't there?

Gerry McCann: Yeah.

Kate McCann: And... and support comes with that; knowing that somebody else feels what you feel and you can take take advice from each other, so...

Laura Harding [voice over]: The couple have tirelessly searched for their young daughter who disappeared from an apartment in Portugal four years ago.

Kate McCann: I mean, if I'm honest, I mean, we live with the pain and anxiety of not having Madeleine in our lives everyday really and that I don't know if tomorrow will be particularly any worse. Errm... I mean I've got three children; I'll always have three children and I'll always been Madeleine's mummy. I guess maybe the difference tomorrow is... I mean Gerry's mum's here today, and my mum's staying with us looking after the kids, and I think it is a time maybe where you do stop and tend to have a meal and bit of time together and it's often when you stop and start to think really that it... it hits home, so... she'll certainly be missed... as she is every day.

Laura Harding [voice over]: The father of missing chef Claudia Lawrence also joined the McCanns for the event in Regent's Park.

Peter Lawrence: I always say that, errr... it's my work that keeps me sane and if I didn't have it, errr... I... I would find it more difficult, errr... it obviously is extremely difficult and it doesn't get any better, errr... after two years, errr... you still think everyday 'why isn't Claudia here', you know, we love her so much and she just disappeared. We had her for thirty five years and the last two years has just been a nightmare.

Laura Harding [voice over]:
Last years inaugral Miles for Missing People run raised more than £50,000 for the charity.
