Search For Missing Madeleine McCann 'Switches To Russia And Ukraine'
LONDON, England -- A charity searching for lost children in Moscow and Kiev said it had been asked by a source close to the McCanns to investigate. The hunt for Madeleine McCann is switching to Russia and Ukraine at the request of her family, it was claimed yesterday. A charity searching for lost children in Moscow and Kiev said it had been asked by a source close to the McCanns to investigate. Posters have been produced in Russian and yesterday the country’s largest news website, Life News, ran a story on her disappearance. A charity worker said: “A close friend of Madeleine McCann’s family contacted us and asked us to look for her in Russia and Ukraine.” A source in Moscow added: "As I understand it, the family has more hopes for Ukraine but I don't know any details." "We are ready to post information on our websites and social network groups plus we are ready to distribute the posters in the Russian language." "Missing children is our job." Madeleine was nearly four when she vanished during a holiday in Portugal in 2007. It is not known if the hunt in the ex-USSR is based on any specific information.
