Maddie McCann went missing 11 years ago from her hotel room while the family were on holiday in Portugal. The mysterious circumstances surrounding the disappearance attracted international attention and meant Maddie McCann’s case quickly became one of the most infamous missing persons cases worldwide.
The website sold a series of T-shirts, posters and car stickers with the aim to raise funds for the search of the missing girl, who disappeared when she was just three years old.
Although initial financial support flooded in following Maddie’s disappearance in 2007, donations needed to aid the search for the missing British girl (who would now be a teenager) have largely dwindled, with the fund seeing little to no financial support from the public in recent years.
“Donations dried up a long time ago. At times the story comes into the news a few kind people send in a quid or two but there is nothing of any real value".
To make matters worse, the funding from the London Metropolitan Police is expected to run out entirely by the end of the month.
It’s a devastating blow to the family who haven’t yet given up hope in their search for Madeleine.
