A man helping in the search for missing schoolgirl Shannon Matthews is believed to have been crucified outside his house just yards from the nine-year-old’s family home.

Police are investigating the alleged assault of a 43-year-old man who neighbours claim was nailed to a wooden cross through his hands on Sunday night, and some locals claim the attack is related to the hunt for the missing girl.

And the McCanns? 

Meanwhile, the McCanns, whose daughter Madeleine disappeared from their holiday apartment in the Algarve last May, have pledged their support to Shannon’s parents.

Writing in his personal online blog, Gerry McCann, said he and his wife Kate were praying for her safe return.

“No matter what has happened to Shannon, there is no doubt she is extremely vulnerable,” he added. “We hope she is found safe and well soon and returned to her family.”

Will the McCanns be called upon to comment on every missing child?

YORKSHIRE POST: “Agencies face abuse inquiry in wake of body find”

Police are searching a former children’s home Haut de la Garenne where they discovered a child’s skull. Police are  now searching six more sites at the building now used as a youth hostel.

Police are using Eddie, who works with South Yorkshire Police as an “enhanced victim recovery dog”.

Eddie is said to have picked up traces of missing Madeleine McCann in the back of a car which her parents hired five weeks after she disappeared.
