      Oh wow, compared to what she looked like when she went missing until now that is a huge change, saying that though it has been 5 years.

      So you quite happy that a 5yr old was abducted ?
      You can't get much sicker than that.

      was she the only child abducted in last 5 years?
      if the answer is yes then I think it's worth the news.

      I'm kind of with magic on this one, sad and heart breaking thing but seems to be a normal thing these days sadly.

      I most likely would have a different outlook if she was my daughter. But as a kidless person it doesn't exactly hit home anywhere.

      well, I will say it again.
      if she was the only kid abducted in last 5 years then I really feel sorry for the parents.
      why is her case different than other (many times worse) cases including abducting, killing, raping and exploiting the kids?

      Nobody is saying it's any different as far as i can see,obviously it doesn't affect you in your country just the same as we don't hear about the follow ups for cases in other countries.
      Having said that if I was a member of a forum in other countries I certainly wouldn't be so insensitive as to just reply "Who Cares"

      are you trying to say she is the only child we should be hearing from "your" country?
      don't make me find for you worse cases in "your" country that didn't make the news.

      Perhaps we should leave all papers and news empty then just to satisfy you

      avoiding debate and turning childish again, putting words in my mouth.
      MY POINT IS THAT SHE (and similar cases) DO NOT DESERVE SO MUCH ATTENTION.
      (but I understand that it sell good because most people is like you: "oh my god, poor little girl."
      AND WHAT ABOUT the girl next door?
      better focus on real life, not what the media feeds you.

      Nobody is saying that other stories are not as important, this one in particular with Madeleine McCann hasn't been mentioned in a long while until now and that is because her parents where trying to get the case opened again in Portugal which led to a new image being posted.

      There are many people including children who go missing every day we know that but coming into a post and replying with "Who cares" regardless of who is missing or if others are missing is pretty disrespectful and rude to be honest and doesn't look good on a forum.

      I am all for people and their opinions but when it is something as harsh as that regardless of your reason for it, it's not right.

      Going to close this post for now before it gets anymore out of hand.
