Gerald MC : She was incredibly beautiful baby actually.Kate MC : We sound like the most biased parents on the planet now but she was just really compact and was just really the really nice, round, perfect head...and......you know...and then she, she opened her mouth ...the whole world knew she was with us...
GMC : It’s a small resort out of season, end of April beginning of May and it was incredibly quiet er, we felt very relaxed there, very relaxed.
KMC interrupts: 49 point 4 on Google if you want to be really specific
GMC : But the proximity was very close.
GMC : We thought that was the best thing erm, and it seemed to work absolutely fine and we didn’t have any problems right until the Thursday morning when Madeleine said “why didn’t you come when we cried last night?” We thought that’s odd.
Interviewer : You now think somebody had either tried to get into the room or was in the room and woke them up the night before.
KMC : Er it seems too much of a coincidence that she made that comment and then that happened that night.
Interviewer : Looking back now, you think that could have been your one chance...to save her.
KMC : Well as soon as ermm I’d discovered that Madeleine had been taken it..it just hit me straight away what she said that morning and I just thought, my God, someone tried the night before.
Voice over : On Thursday night, Kate put her daughter to bed for the last time.KMC : My memory of that evening, it’s really vivid, I mean she was really tired but she was just cuddled up on my knee and we read a story and we also had some treats, some crisps and biscuits erm and then after they’d done the usual kind of, toilet, teeth erm we went through to the bedroom and read another story: If your happy and your know it...ermm...[looks at the interviewer then away and back again] ...yep.
Voice over : At 9pm Gerry checked on Madeleine and the twins.
GMC : I’d actually stuck my head around the door and I, I just lingered for a few seconds and thought how beautiful she was erm and that’s the last time I saw her.
Interviewer: Last time you saw herGMC closes eyes and swallows: MmmmInterviewer: You thought how lucky you were
GMC : Exactly. Your world’s shattered within an hour.
voice over: At 10pm it was Kate’s turn to look in on the kids,
KMC : The bedroom door where the three children were sleeping was open much further than we’d left it. I went to close it to about here, and then as I got to about here it suddenly ...slammed. And then as I opened it, it was then that I just thought, I’ll just look at the children. And literally as I went back in the curtains of the bedroom which were drawn, were closed ...whoooosh...it was like a gust of wind kind of blew them open.
KMC : And the curtains which had been closed just swung open into the room and reveal that the shutter was all the way up and the window had been pushed right across and then I just knew...I just knew she’d been taken.
GMC : I know exactly where the table was. It was kinda this bit, so it would be about around here. And er, I was kinda sitting in this bit.Kate was clearly distraught and I jumped up but, kind of disbelief. She can’t be gone. She can’t...she can’t possibly be...how can she be gone? And I was saying that to Kate as we were both running.
KMC : The night seemed so long, every second was excruciating and it was dark and er, you just want there to be light and everybody searching and Madeleine found.
Interviewer : Did you kill your daughter?
GMC : (on apprendra en 2017 que le début de la réponse a été coupé). No. That’s an emphatic no. I mean the ludicrous thing is erm what, I suppose what’s been purported from Portugal is that Madeleine died in the apartment by an accident and we hid her body. Well when did she have the accident and died, because, the only time she was left unattended was when we were at dinner so ...if she died then, how could we of disposed – hidden her body. You know, when there’s an immediate [inaudible but sounds like he was about to say ‘search’] it’s just nonsense. And if she died when we were in the apartment or fell and di...why would we ...why would we cover that up?
KMC : It gets even more ludicrous that we’ve obviously hidden her somewhere incredibly well where nobody’s found her ..
KMC : and we’d hidden her so well that we’d decided we’d move her in the car which we hired weeks later and you know, it’s just ridiculous.
Interviewer : When you come back to Portugal do you feel closer to Madeleine?KMC : Although I don’t know where Madeleine is that is the last place that, you know, I saw her, held her, and I guess there’s a part of me that still feels connected to her there so.
KMC : I think kids can be written off, you know, missing kids can be written off too easily. You cannot do that, you cannot give up on a child.
GMC : Kids are survivors.
KMC : You know, Madeleine means tower of strength. Wherever she was, whoever she’s been with, whatever’s happened, we will get her through it.
Interviewer : You will not rest until you find your daughter, until you wrap your arms around her.
KMC : I don’t believe any parent could, you know, and I don’t believe we could ever reach the point where we just think oh well, we’ve done everything now, you know. Whilst the situation remains as it is, you know, Madeleine’s out there and she needs us to find her.
GMC : MmmmInterviewer: You’ll keep looking foreverKMC : We will.
