The disappearance of Madeleine McCann occurred on 3 May 2007 when the three-year-old girl vanished while staying in a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in the Algarve region of Portugal. Police believe she has been kidnapped.
Ok, we all know that in essence, it was the parents *fault* but now is not the time to blame anyone, the most important thing is to get this kid back.
I am posting it here, because it has been two weeks now, and nobody is none the wiser, and she could be anywhere in the world.
Madeleine's parents had put her and her siblings, two-year-old twins, to bed and were dining 100 yards away with friends at a restaurant near the Mark Warner Ocean Summer Club, in Praia da Luz, when she disappeared from the apartment where they were staying. Kate and Gerry McCann were taking turns checking on their children. At approximately 21:30 WEST (Western European Summer Time), Gerry checked on the children and they were all fine. At around 21:45 WEST the McCanns returned from the restaurant to find an empty bed and the apartment door and window wide open. Staff and guests at the complex searched until 04:30 WEST whilst police on the Spanish border and all airports in Portugal and Spain were notified.

I am posting this because I realise it is very unlikely, but she really could be anywhere in the world.
A poster I saw today, read something along the lines of : "Look into my eyes".
According to logic, the kidnapper could have changed her appearance, but if you look into her eyes, you can see on her right eye (left to us) her iris creeps into her pupil, a very distinct thing, and one the kidnapper couldn't exactly remove.
Click Here for the News of the world poster (the poster was printed this morning, thus the sum is "only" £1.5 million, but i assure you it is now £2.5 million (according to the BBC anyway)
Here is a news article about it: http://news.bbc.co.u.../uk/6650711.stm
I know it is very unlikely, but it goes without saying, if anyone sees this little girl, contact:
News of the world
Or simply call your local police station / sheriff office or even your local emergency number (999/112/911 etc)
I have no doubt the reward will grow in stature throughout the next few days.
