Kate tells of their desperation, the fears they both had, especially the fear that Madeleine had been taken by a paedophile and killed. It was the only thoughts that were in their heads. They couldn’t banish them from their minds. Alan Pike, however told Kate and Gerry McCann that they had to be ready.
He said to them:
Madeleine might walk through that door at any minute, you need to be ready for that.
Kate and Gerry McCann for over 4 years have clung onto those words and Kate speaks them at the end of a video. I have snipped the relevant part:
Those words are very poignant and no mother, no father, no grandparent, no aunt, no uncle, no decent human being would ever give up on finding a missing child.
The only day they would give up looking and hoping, would be either the day their child was found, or the day they received official confirmation that their child’s body has been found or the day which they take their final breath.

If this was your child missing would you give up? I wouldn’t.
