How many of you know of little maddy?? I know of her, she has become a celeb before her 4th birthday... but for all the wrong reasons... she was abducted in portugal on may 3rd. She should have celebrated her 4th birthday last week but is still missing. Can you believe some of the sicko's out there? Taking a 3 yr old from her hotel room? I think it is dreadful. The reward for her return has now gone up to 2.6million pounds. Richard Branson has offered 1mill on his own!! This type of thing scares me. I dont have children but I have little neices and nephews around 3 and 4 years old. It makes me keep a much closer eye on them. What about you?? Has this news make you watch children close to you EVEN more than usual?? I was always wary but now I wont let her out of reach. I hope maddy is brought home soon. Don't you??

I had never heard of the story of Maddy, but it sounds similar to other children abductions that seem to be happening with more frequency. It is rather scary to hear, especially when I have 3 little ones of my own to be looking out for all the time! We recently were alerted to a 'weird' person that was lurking around the small park in my little town that I live next too. I guess I never really expected this type of behavior in a less than 1000 person town population. But now I am even more wary of letting my kids out of sight, and have since banned them from going anywhere with their friends without an adult. They are not happy about it, but I would rather they be mad at me than to get abducted by a stranger and who knows what could happen! I think it is great that you are such a caring aunt and that you stay read up on these occurances so that you know what to look for when out with them. I could wish that some more in my family would feel the same way.

I thought it might have been a worldwide thing but maybe it is just all over british news??? I have cared for all the children in my life. Being at the age of about 10 when the first one was born, I was just off dolls, they were like the real thing, it taught me a lot of responsibility, and im glad. If you wanna read about maddy search uk yahoo news... i know it is pages and pages of her and whats going on like a round the clock thing.

i just came to know it from u. they are really sick people. for their own mon ey earned from wrong means they can be so cruel that they adduct such a child and demand a huge money. in my city also there are so many instances of these. But don't they think they can't never be hapy like this?

thank you for your response! An update on the missing angel, the portugese police have named a suspect and he is a british man who owns a villa down the road from where little maddy was taken, the police have also been seen draining his pool. i hope she is brought home soon
