A tired and emotional Gerry and Kate McCann gave a press conference at 10:30 today (Friday May 11.)
Kate, still clutching the soft toy she has had with her for the past week, looked understandably strained and drawn as husband Jerry read the statement.
“We have now seen at first hand how hard the police are working in the search for Madeleine and their strong desire to find her.
“We have also seen the resources being put into the investigation. We are doing absolutely everything to assist the police with their investigation and will leave no stone unturned in the search for our daughter.
“We are grateful for all the efforts and offers of support that we have had from home and from around the world. We have been moved by the enormous willingness of people to do all they can to help find Madeleine.
“As we have said before, we remain positive and focused on the investigation.”
