More sight­ings of Madeleine 50 days on

Daily Mail - - News -

SEV­ERAL leads emerged in the search for Madeleine McCann yes­ter­day as her par­ents marked the 50th day since her dis­ap­pear­ance.

Work­ers at Geneva Air­port re­ported two sep­a­rate sight­ings of a child re­sem­bling four-year-old Madeleine with a blonde wo­man in her 50s.

Fifty po­lice of­fi­cers searched the ter­mi­nal, and pi­lots were or­dered to check all chil­dren on flights but the wo­man and child could not be found.

In Malta po­lice in­ten­si­fied their search for Madeleine last night af­ter four sep­a­rate, ap­par­ently cred­i­ble sight­ings of her on the is­land – some by Bri­tish tourists.

Mal­tese po­lice spokesman Mario Spi­teri said: ‘We are tak­ing th­ese re­ports very se­ri­ously and are do­ing ev­ery­thing in our power to fol­low them up.

‘This case has top pri­or­ity and all the is­land’s po­lice are on high alert.’

Yes­ter­day Madeleine’s par­ents Kate and Gerry McCann were back in the Por­tuguese re­sort of Praia da Luz, from where their daugh­ter was snatched on May 3.

They re­leased 50 bal­loons with Madeleine’s pic­ture on them – one for each day she has been miss­ing. ‘The bal­loons are to re­mind ev­ery­one that, 50 days on, Madeleine is still miss­ing and in three months, if she is still miss­ing, we’ll still be look­ing for her,’ her fa­ther said.

‘We know that peo­ple are look­ing for Madeleine, that’s all that we are ask­ing.’
