The duo wrote on their Find Madeleine website May 3, “It’s hard to even say that number without shaking our heads in disbelief, Whilst we are fortunate in many ways and able to live a relatively normal and enjoyable life now, the ‘living in limbo’ is still very unsettling. And the absence still aches.”

The statement also noted, “Your support continues to encourage us and bolsters our strength to keep going, We know the love and hope for Madeleine and the will to find her, even after so many years, remains, and we are truly thankful for that.”

Though Madeleine was not the only daughter of the couple Gerry and Kate McCann. The duo are also parents to 18-year-old twins Sean and Amelie.

According to BBC, German authorities identified Christian Brückner, now 47, as a suspect. Christian has been already serving a seven year prison sentence for rape in Praia da Luz. However, denied any involvement in the Madeleine’s disappearance case and therefore has never been charged as well.
