After five years Madeleine Mccann’s story is still being updated on the news. After watching the ITV news, Kate and Gerry McCann stated that they feel confident and more positive that they will find their daughter. She was four when she went missing from the family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, in the Algarve, whilst Kate and Gerry dined with friends nearby.
Whenever I hear about this story, I just want to know why her story is more important than other missing children in the world. In addition to this, there are mixed views on the truth of their story. In the past her parents have even been accused of killing her themselves.
Martin Stevens stated that, “Why were the other children left behind and Madeleine taken from the hotel room? Plus, they were allegedly slightly drugged so that they would be sleepy and go to bed so the parents could go out. The story just seems a bit fishy.”
The Madeleine McCann story, in my opinion, seems as if it hasn’t been investigated into properly, and in addition to this, it appears as if the story is just to make money, as Newspapers know that a story about this child will sell. Especially as it has been five years since she went missing, as if they are seeing it as an ‘anniversary’ which needs to be exploited.
