The mother of Madeleine McCann has joined mothers of other missing
children to highlight the lack of emotional support given to families.
Speaking outside the House of Commons Mrs McCann pointed out that: "If
your house is burgled, you are automatically offered victim support with
emotional, practical and legal assistance. If your child goes missing,
you may get nothing."
Madeleine McCann went missing from her
family's holiday flat in the Algarve shortly before her fourth birthday.
Kate McCann called for the Government to show its support saying there
is no legislation to protect missing people and their families left
Mrs McCann was joined by Sarah Godwin whose son Quentin went missing in
New Zealand in 1992 and Nicki Durbin whose son Luke went missing four
They are giving evidence to MPs at the first ever Parliamentary inquiry
into the rights of families of missing people.
