About Madeleine McCann
Madeleine McCann was born 4 years ago. She has one brother Sean and a sister Amelie. She lives with her family in Rothley,
Her father comes from Glasgow and has 3 sisters, Patricia, Jacqueline and Phil, and a brother John. Madeleine's Grandmother,
Eileen lives in Glasgow. Her other grandparents, Sue and Brian live in Liverpool.
Both sides of the family are very close and all are working in different ways to try and help in the search for Madeleine.
Phil, who resides in Ullapool and is a teacher, has asked that the heartfelt thanks of the whole family be passed to
everyone who has helped in the search so far. She said: "There have been so many messages of support and prayers from people
all over the world. We (the family) are overwhelmed with your assistance. The media people have been wonderful and so helpful
in making everyone aware of our plight. Madeleine's family are so grateful to you all. Please keep Madeleine in your thoughts
and prayers. We pray that she will be returned to us safe and well."
What the new FindMadeleine site tells us about Madeleine McCann, 01/02/08
Madeleine was born in May 2003 – a long-awaited and very much longed for little girl. She lives in the village
of Rothley in Leicester, with her mummy and daddy and little brother and sister, Sean and Amelie.
Madeleine is a very happy little girl with an outgoing personality. She has always been a very popular little person,
appealing to both children and adults alike with her funny and engaging chatter. She has many friends who obviously miss her
dearly. Despite her young age, it often felt like Madeleine had been on this earth before!
Like most girls her age, she likes dolls and dresses (and anything pink and sparkly) but with a definite taste for action-adventure
too! She has an incredible amount of energy and even as a little baby, didn’t seem to need much rest. She enjoys running
and swimming and is an Everton fan like her mum and granddad.
Madeleine has always been a wonderfully loving and caring big sister to Sean and Amelie. It was certainly not the quietest
house on the planet with lots of giggling, singing and the inevitable odd bit of mischief! For Sean and Amelie, there is without
doubt, a very important person missing in their life.
Madeleine is a warm, life-enriching little person and will never fail we’re sure, to bring joy into the life of
anyone she may encounter.

it was during the early part of 2007, somewhere in the UK.
