Missing Madeleine McCann's Parents Mark Her 8th Birthday With A New Book On Their Story

The McCanns promise to never give up the search for their daughter as they release their new book, ‘Madeleine,’ today, Maddy’s birthday.

Maddy McCann, who went missing from her British family’s rental apartment in Praia de Luz, Portugal at 10 p.m. on May 3, 2007, turns 8 years old today. And her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, are renewing their hope that they will find their daughter and bring her home.

In her book, simply titled Madeleine, Kate recalls the moment she realized her then four-year-old daughter was gone. Seeing the windows open and Maddy’s bed empty, Kate writes that she felt “nausea, terror, disbelief, fear. Icy fear,” and said to herself, “Dear God, no! Please, no!”

Maddy’s disappearance, which has captivated people around the world, is told through the eyes of her mother, who has been working on the book for the past year.

“We hope and pray that it will bring us the result we long for and that not only the book but this whole ordeal and heartache will be behind us before too much longer,” Kate writes on the Find Madeleine website.

All proceeds from the book will benefit Madeleine’s Fund, which Kate and Gerry use to finance their ongoing investigation into the mystery.

??? the picture on the left says “Maddie aged 3 in 1997″ and then the picture on the right is supposed to be her today? Okay, that’d make her 13-14 years old…much older than 8 years old. Also, she was young when she was kidnapped in 2007!! So, I’m thinking the date is WAY OFF.
