Default UK police explore new line of investigation over missing McCann

I don't begrudge people trying to find their child but why does this family get more attention for all these years while thousands of kids have disappeared since?

because they are rich. But I do hope they find her alive and maybe break up a ring and in so doing help other kids in the same boat.

Question Re: UK police explore new line of investigation over missing McCann

UK police granted extra funds in search for missing Madeleine McCann...

Madeleine McCann: UK police granted extra funds in search for missing child
Sun March 12, 2017 - Kate McCann husband Gerry continue to search for their daughter after she disappeared in May 2007.
Quote:
British police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have been given additional funds to continue their search for the girl who vanished a decade ago. The UK Home Office gave police $103,000 ( 85,000) to extend the search for six more months between April and September. Madeleine was a few weeks shy of her fourth birthday when she went missing from her family's holiday apartment on May 3, 2007, in the Portuguese town of Praia da Luz.

'Never give up'

Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, have always promised to "never give up" their search for their missing daughter. So far, about $13.5 million has been spent on the search, which is nicknamed Operation Grange. "Following an application from the Metropolitan Police for Special Grant funding, the Home Office has confirmed 85,000 in operational costs for Operation Grange for the period 1 April until September 2017," the Home Office said. "As with all applications, the resources required are reviewed regularly and careful consideration is given before any new funding is allocated."

Missing for a decade

The search for Madeleine has gone on for years, and has included investigators from the UK and Portugal. Her parents had left Madeleine and her younger twin siblings asleep while they went for dinner with friends at a nearby tapas restaurant. Her mother raised the alarm when she checked on the children about 10 p.m. and discovered her daughter missing. A series of suspects have been questioned, but there have been no solid clues.

After 10 years since her disappearance there is someone they need to question so they have been granted 85k for another six months investigations. Tens of thousands of under 18s go missing every year and the 10 million pounds spent on this disappearance is just too much. The couple, had they been disadvantaged, poor and black, would have been held to account for the crime of leaving their children 200 yards away while they ate and drank. Their other children would have been taken into care.

On the continent it is common for kids to dine with their parents and they can just be put in their buggies when tired. I would never have let my kids out of my sight at the McCann's kids' ages. Both white, both doctors, and that is supposed to let them off the hook. Bloody disgusting the way so much effort is diverted to a missing child and nothing remotely close to other missing kids.
