DAILY EXPRESS: “I feel your pain – Kate’s note to kidnap parents”

Kate McCann has delivered a “heartfelt message of support” to the parents of missing girl Mari Luz Cortes

Writes Kate, a “GP”: “I feel your pain, as parents we know what you’re going through…I am praying that Mari Luz is found quickly, safe and well”

Not that it’s all about the McCanns, a Maddy 2. Although: Says Juan Jose Cortes, Mari’s father: “Only now I understand what Madeleine McCann’s parents are suffering”

Neither Mr Cortes nor his wife are named suspects in their child’s disappearance

The McCanns have offered to equip posters of Madeleine with a shot of Mari – 12,000 of them are to be put up in Spain, the Balearic and Canary Islands

Mr Cortes says thank you but “We don’t feels strong enough to make a decision”

Says Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns’ spokesman: “The posters could lead to vital clues in both cases. Mari Luz’s face would sit along Madeleine’s… We just want to help”

Help who?


“Madeleine McCann’s mum has told the parents of a child feared snatched by the same abductor: ‘I feel your pain.’ GP Kate, 39, sent her words of comfort to the parents of five-year-old Mari Luz Cortes when the McCanns’ private detectives met them to investigate links between the two cases”

How did the papers come to know of this message, and how can knowing help either child?

“POLICE reject claims of link” – Portuguese police do not “believe” there is a link between Mari and Madeleine

Kate McCann is a “GP”

DAILY MAIL: “McCanns comfort lost girl’s parents”

Kate McCann has sent an “emotional message” to the parents of Mari Luz Cortes

THE McCanns will have to wait until September this year to discover why they were made suspects


“I FEEL YOUR PAIN – Kate’s message to parents of missing Spanish girl Mari”

Reports are that police are seeking a “local sex pest” in Huelva

“70,000..the number of kids under 16 that go missing in the UK every year. Only 10 per cent vanish for more than five days”

Any more room on those posters? How are they remembered?

DAILY TELEGRAPH: “McCanns tell lost girl’s parents: We feel for you”

Says a friend of Mari’s parents, Irene akate-mccann.jpgnd Juan Jose Cortes: “They have been touched by the fact someone who is going through her own turmoil can find the strength to think of their moment of need”
