MADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann: Police find the body of what looks to be Aisling Symes, the New Zealand child prayed for by the McCanns and watched by the world’s media.

HORRIBLE news from New Zealand where police looking for Aisling Symes have found the body of a child in a storm water drain.

Aisling Symes was last seen near her grandparent’s home in Henderson, Auckland, a week ago.

“The immediate scene has been condoned off and treated as a crime scene,” says Insp Gary Davey.

Says Sky News: “There was speculation she had been abducted.”

This speculation is what made the missing child a global story.

A few words from Madeleine McCanns’ parents, seized upon by a voracious media, and it became a yet more desperate hunt for a stolen child. It became the media’s “every parent’s worst nightmare”.

A child goes missing – and the international media uses it as a chance to add another chapter to its obsession.
