LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – It was intended to be Madeleine McCann’s first day at school. But after 119 days with no news of her whereabouts and growing fears that she is dead, life is starting to carry on without her.
Head teacher Gail Neill will say a prayer later today during a special assembly at the school, the Telegraph reports.
We are deeply saddened that we cannot yet welcome Madeleine,” she said. “A place has been prepared for her, in exactly the same way as it has been for the other children.
“It will remain ready and waiting as we continue to pray, along with her parents, in the hope of her safe return to her family.”
The painful milestone came as Madeleine’s father made a direct appeal to her kidnapper to come forward and tell them where she is.
