Friday May 4

• Sniffer dogs are brought in, the Spanish and border police and airports are notified and volunteer teams continue to comb the village, resort and beach for clues.
• Fears grow that Madeleine has been taken against her will and her parents accuse the Portuguese police of not doing enough to find her.
• The Policia Judiciaria – the Portuguese CID – refuses to comment on the investigation into the girl’s disappearance.
• Relatives including Madeleine’s grandparents start flying out to Portugal to offer support to her parents as they continue to wait for news.
• The British Ambassador to Portugal, John Stephen Buck, and director of Mark Warner UK Operations Craig Mayhew also travel to the Algarve.
• The McCanns later make an emotional plea, directly addressing their daughter’s abductors, and speak of their “anguish and despair”.
With his wife at his side clutching Madeleine’s favourite teddy, Mr McCann asks: “Please, if you have Madeleine, let her come home to her Mummy, Daddy, brother and sister.”
