It’s an obvious statement, I know, but someone, somewhere image knows what happened to Madeleine McCann. And maybe others too. I wonder how they can sleep at night knowing the torment her family is suffering.

One year on from Madeleine’s abduction, I’m afraid I believe the worst. My thoughts are with Gerry and Kate McCann image who are now doing their utmost to help other families who may one day find themselves in this terrible situation by urging an Amber Alert warning system to be set up throughout Europe similar to the American version. It is a system desperately needed.

And my thoughts today are also with Steve Cook’s loving family (pic left) after he vanished in Crete in September 2005. I met them during the march for missing people in London in March. Steve’s disappearance featured on BBC’s Missing Live programme this morning.

In memory of those who are still missing.
