Alongside this was the message: “It’s been a while since I’ve posted.
“Our resolve is still the same and we have not lost hope of finding Madeleine or finding out what happened to her.
“Thank you for continuing to be by our side and keeping hope alive.”
In 2007, Madeline disappeared at the age of three while on holiday in Portugal with her parents and siblings.
Kate and Gerry McCann left their three children asleep in their holiday apartment in Praia da Luz while they had dinner with friends at a nearby tapas restaurant.
Mr McCann checked on the youngsters at 9pm and found nothing amiss.
But when his wife Kate returned an hour later at around 10pm, she discovered three-year-old Madeleine was missing.
The frantic parents carried out a rapid search and immediately raised the alarm.
Since Madeleine’s disappearance 13 years ago, Mr and Mrs McCann have vowed to never give up hope of finding their daughter.
They have launched several public appeals and won high-profile backers, with millions of pounds spent on investigations.
