Madeleine fund runs dry

THE fund to help find Madeleine McCann is likely to run dry by the end of the year, her father has said.

Money for the international search operation is dwindling, Gerry McCann said.

“There’s still money in it. I can’t give you the exact figure, but we have spent — and continue to spend — a lot of money with the aim of trying to enhance the chance of finding her,” he told The Portugal News.

The fund is believed to have received about £2.5 million (€2.78m) since Madeleine disappeared from Praia da Luz on May 3, 2007.
