True, since they are in a place that is strange to them, usually, don't know anyone, etc. it makes it so much harder. I was just thinking this morning. In so many of these cases you are dealing with a lost child, someone who has lost a child. That's horrible enough in a home setting, but this is just too much to bear. How in the world do the McCanns go on now? How do they go home to England now and resume their lives, their medical careers, without their child, without knowing what has happened to Madeleine? Without HER? It seems too much to ask of a mere mortal, yet I know people who lose children manage to do it all the time. But this was a BABY!! Most of the time when a child this young is snatched, it is usually by a non-custodial parent and 9 times out of 10, the child is found safe. But this was a stranger abduction in a foreign country with very few clues, if any, of a baby, a tiny little girl barely out of her nappies. To me, this is the worst possible scenario of someone abducting your child, the worst possible nightmare of strangeness and vulnerablity and not knowing and of loss. God, please, please let them find this baby somewhere safe!!!!
