The parents of Madeleine McCann have marked the 11th anniversary of her disappearance by thanking supporters for staying with them on the mission to find their daughter.

Kate and Gerry McCann said perseverance and hope will remain during their search for Madeleine, who vanished aged three while the family were on holiday in Portugal.

The message, on the Find Madeleine Campaign Facebook page, thanked supporters for their persisting solidarity as it “gets harder to know what to say or write” after her disappearance.

More than Cdn $19M million has been spent on a police investigation after Madeleine disappeared from an apartment in the Praia da Luz resort, in a suspected abduction.
