Missing Madeleine McCann On BBC Daytime TV Show

MADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann , Kate McCann and Gerry McCann

Daily Record : “Quirke Start To A Mid-Life Crisis”

THE BBC’s new entertainment show Missing is on daytime telly. Quirk plays “DS Mary Jane Croft, a charismatic detective who runs an under-resourced department. The drama, set in a busy Missing Persons Unit, sees staff race against time to save people who are at risk.”

“But I’m pleased I’ve filmed the series. It’s entertainment – I wouldn’t claim it to be anything else – but you never know, do you? Somebody who has had a fall-out with their family and has gone missing may see the show, feel a pang of conscience and get in touch with relatives who are worried sick about what has happened to them.”

Pauline is relieved to report nobody has ever gone missing from her own family – husband Steve Sheen and children Emily, 24, and Charlie, 14.


She says: “I can, truly, think of nothing worse than missing a child and for that uncertainty to continue – as it has for the parents of Madeleine McCann – must be unbearable.

Fact and fiction can you spot the difference?

The Herald : “Body discovered in loch believed to be missing Uist cadet”

The mysterious disappearance had haunted the island community since Christmas, but it now looks as if the long search for a 21-year-old merchant navy cadet who went missing almost three months ago is at an end.

The people of South Uist have been looking for Simon MacMillan since he vanished in the early hours of Boxing Day in the township of Linique in the Iochdar area of the island…

A group of locals discovered a body at around 10.30am yesterday in Loch Bee, just south of the road between Linique and Mr MacMillan’s home in Ardmore.

And context?

Northern Constabulary brought in Mark Harrison, the national search adviser to the National Policing Improvement Agency, who was also involved in the search for Madeleine McCann.
