Kate and Gerry McCann

More than 36,000 people have signed an online petition calling for a review into the search for missing Madeline McCann.

The petition, supported by her parents Kate and Gerry McCann aims to persuade UK and Portuguese authorities to take a fresh look at the investigation into the disappearance of the girl, who vanished during a family holiday in Portugal on May 3, 2007.

Mr and Mrs McCann believe authorities at home and abroad have given up on the investigation and may have overlooked some clues.

Family spokesperson Clarence Mitchell said: "Kate and Gerry are very pleased with the way that it has taken off and are grateful to everyone who has signed it.

 

"The figures on the petition speak for themselves. The rise has been very satisfying and it really does show the level of public support out there.

"All you hear about is all the critics so its very satisfying to see all the people out there showing support."

In the first 24 hours of the online petition being launched, more than 22,000 people had signed.

Mr Mitchell said the petition would continue to run until signatures stop coming in.

He said: "It's very much an on-going thing and will remain until people stop signing it, when it will be presented as a petition to the UK and Portuguese governments.

"Kate and Gerry want the government and in turn the police to look at all the evidence collected because they feel important aspects and clues could be being missed.

"I'm not sure of the figure that Kate and Gerry have in mind, but when it reaches that level is when we will make a formal representation.

"The amount of signatures is still rising and that's the main thing."

The case into Madeleine's disappearance was closed in July 2008, and since then private investigators, hired by Kate and Gerry, have continued the hunt.

The fund to pay for this, made up of mainly of libel payments and public donations, is set to run out early next year.

A book telling Kate and Gerry's story, due to be released in the first half of next year, is set to raise money to continue the search.

Mr Mitchell said the new book was mainly being written by Kate.

Mr Mitchell said: "Money is still being spent on the investigation and without any more money coming it may run out by spring.

"The book will be coming out around the fourth anniversary of Madeleine's disappearance God forbid we get that far."
