The parents of Madeleine
McCann have released an image of how their little girl may look today.
The then three-year-old,
who vanished from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal two years ago on Sunday, would now be almost six years old.
Gerry and Kate McCann
employed a forensic imaging artist from the US National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children to create a photographic
impression of how Madeleine may look at that age.
The "age progression
image" was unveiled on Oprah Winfrey's US TV chat show on Friday afternoon.
Without evidence to
the contrary, the McCanns, from Rothley in Leicestershire, still believe there is "a very real likelihood" Madeleine is alive
The age progression
image will be used on posters for a fresh drive to find their daughter.
In the one-hour interview
on the US chat show, Oprah asked them: "Do you let yourself go to the worst?"
Mrs McCann replied:
"I think it's natural. I know people mean well when they say don't let yourself go there, but as a mum, inevitably there are
times when I do. And they're the times that I kind of dip down."
When asked about their
marriage, Mr McCann said: "Child abduction, I think, could destroy any family. There's no doubt about it.
"It's one of the most
devastating things. But we've been supported tremendously well and I think that's helped us stay strong and stay together.
"Obviously, we're really
united in our goal and our love of Madeleine and Sean and Amelie."
Mrs McCann said she
keeps Madeleine's room ready for her return and said she goes in there about twice a day.
"Do you talk to her?"
Mrs McCann replied:
"Just [to] say hello, really. Just [to] tell her we're still going to do everything we can to find her."
Last year, on the first
anniversary, they launched an appeal urging anyone who spoke to police about the missing child to contact their own hotline.
The couple were buoyed
by news earlier this week that EU funding had been set aside for the Europe-wide alert system for missing children, which
they had campaigned for.
