Letingen etter Madeleine McCann avtar ikke. Tvertom vokser responsen. Det nye nettstedet brøt sammen av trafikken. Det settes opp plakater på busser i 27 land, og idretten engasjerer seg for alvor.

Det er offentligheten som selv sier at dette finner vi oss ikke i. Denne jenta skal finnes.
Internett og TV skaper en slik nærhet til begivenheten at folk vil gjøre noe. Der portugisisk politi ikke greier bryte med gamle metoder, tar folk skjeen i egne hender.

The publicity surrounding the disappearance of Madeleine McCann reached unprecedented levels today with posters being put up across Europe and news emerging that a film of her will be played at the FA Cup Final tomorrow.

As visits to Findmadeleine.com overwhelmed the newly-created website, National Express said that it will put up posters of the abducted four-year-old in bus and coach stations in 27 countries served by the Eurolines coach service network, from Ireland to the Baltic states, and from Sweden down to Morocco.

The sporting world continued to throw its weight behind efforts to track Madeleine. The Football Association said that a video would be shown to fans on the big screens at Wembley Stadium during the match between Manchester United and Chelsea, probably before kick-off and again at half-time.

The film – which has the soundtrack of the Simple Minds hit Don’t You Forget About Me – was earlier screened at the Uefa Cup final between Sevilla and Espanyol in Glasgow on Wednesday.

At the first Test match against the West Indies at Lord’s, Andrew Strauss, the England cricket captain, and his team were wearing yellow ribbons in support of the efforts to find her.

Appeal to be spread across Europe
