Travel Guide

Praia da Luz

A small sleepy town in the Algarve popular with tourists.

Madeleine  McCann

Madeleine  McCann , aged 3 at the time, disappeared on the evening of 3 May 2007 from her bed in a holiday apartment. She has still not been found.

She had been left with her siblings – two year old twins – asleep in their ground-floor apartment whilst the parents joined their friends, also parents with kids in the neighbouring apartments. They told police later that they checked on their children every 30 minutes. When Kate went at 10pm, she noticed Madeline had gone.

The restaurant was on the holiday complex some 55 metres away but it was not an enclosed site and members of the public could access the apartments easily. The police were called and the investigation began. The parents and the investigation have both been criticized.

No trace of Madeline was ever found.
