Maddie went missing from a hotel room in the
Algarve, Portugal while on a family holiday in 2007. Despite raising
significant public support and hiring private detectives, her parents
have never found her.
Asking the government to provide more support for
families dealing with a missing child, Kate said: 'To be left in the
dark when your child is missing and at risk is unbearable ... Many
people have been worn down by this process because it's absolutely
relentless and exhausting.'
However, she said she feels more positive about the
possibility of Maddie being tracked after Scotland Yard was put on the
case, saying she felt 'the chances of her being found are improving'.
Telegraph previously reported a team of 30 detectives could be put on
the case, costing millions of pounds.
She was joined
in her calls for help by the mother of Luke Durbin, who disappeared five
years ago after a night out in Ipswich, and Sarah Godwin, whose son went
missing on the way to work in New Zealand in 1992.
