Glasgow vigil for missing Madeleine

Hundreds of people attended a prayer service for Madeleine McCann in Glasgow as the search for the missing girl continued in the Algarve.

People queued round the block and many were unable to get inside St Andrew’s Roman Catholic Cathedral for the service on Friday evening.

The three-year-old’s father, Gerry McCann, is from Glasgow.

His colleagues in the medical profession organised the vigil, which took place at the cathedral in Clyde Street.

Madeleine, from Rothley, Leicestershire, disappeared from her family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz eight days ago.

Gerry and Kate McCann said on Friday they would leave “no stone unturned” in the search for their daughter and stressed that they were remaining “positive and focused”.

Madeleine’s uncle, John McCann, told the prayer service that Mr and Mrs McCann had sent an email message to those attending the vigil.

They said: “Thanks to everyone for their messages and actions of support.

“This is exactly what we need in this trying time. Please continue to drive support around Europe. Get people to access information.

“We remain confident that Madeleine will be found soon and your prayers and efforts will bring this about.”
