Kate McCann has revealed she still buys Christmas presents for her missing daughter Madeleine – more than a decade after the youngster vanished in Portugal.
Writing in the Daily Telegraph, McCann recalled the last Christmas she spent with her daughter, when Madeleine was just three years old.
Her present that year was a toy kitchen, the Press Association reported, which had been wrapped with a bow and left downstairs for her to find on Christmas morning.
“I remember seeing her face when she walked in”, said McCann, describing it as a “lovely moment”.
“I have bought a Christmas present for Madeleine every year since then but that toy cooker was the last one I ever saw her open,” she added.
Madeleine disappeared from an apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007, while the family were on holiday.
