But the papers have largely moved on. The Star leads with Liverpool and a reality TV singer in a bikini; the Mail and Mirror leads with Ibrahim Adam, Cerie Bullivant and Lamine Adam, three terror suspects on the run.

But above the picture of grief-wracked Liverpool football captain Steven Gerrard, the Sun remembers Madeleine. What news of the girl from the paper that cared enough to rename the missing girl “MADDIE”?

There is no news. But there is a picture of Madeleine’s mother. She’s in Fatima, the “world-famous holy shrine of miracles”.

“MUM IN PAINFUL VIGIL AT HOLY SITE,” says the Sun. “One kiss…1,000 payers.” And we are back to watching the parents. They share a “tender moment”. Mum carries a “yellow rose for Maddie”. “Silent pray,” says a caption beneath a picture of the parents at payer, “…they ask for daughter’s return.”

This is “tearful Kate McCann”. Her pain is evident. “Madeleine’s mum prays for a miracle,” says the Express, the only other paper to feature Madeleine McCann on its front page.

And it has news. Michaela Walczuch, the “German girlfriend” to prime suspect Robert Murat is being questioned by police. Her husband, one other point in what the Express calls a “bizarre love triangle” is also in interview.

They are questioned about their whereabouts on the night of Madeleine’s disappearance. Police want to know of their dealings with Murat. And then they are free to go and told they are no longer suspects.

Back in the Church. And the Express senses a development: “After Mass a streak of light shone through a stained glass window as the McCanns spent half and hour in private prayer at the chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows.”

And finally the police have a lead…
