Madeleine McCann’s mum Kate has returned to work on the frontline of the NHS to help battle the Covid-19 pandemic.

Kate was working as a GP when her daughter disappeared on a family holiday in Portugal in 2007.

Madeleine was three years old when she went missing on May 3 2007 while on holiday in Portugal.

Her disappearance sparked one of the most high-profile missing persons searches in history.

Kate McCann returns to work with the NHS

Kate quit her job in 2007 following the global search for her daughter with her return ending a 14-year absence from working in medicine.

A source told The Sun: “Kate’s back working as a doctor. She’s helping out at her local hospitals now and not doing any surgery work.

“She has thrown herself back into a full-time job to assist others in need.

“There’s such a demand for qualified medics during these unprecedented times.

“Kate's enjoying doing her little bit to help but we hardly ever see her and Gerry now. They are both so busy.”

Madeleine McCann’s parents will never give up on search

Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann have vowed to never give up looking for their daughter.

May this year would have marked Madeleine’s 18th birthday and earlier this year Kate and Gerry said every May that passes is a “reminder of years passed, of years together lost, or stolen”.

A campaign group keeping the memory of Madeleine McCann vowed it is “never going to give up” its search as it marked her 18th birthday.

The well-known image of Madeleine in a pink sun hat was posted on the Official Find Madeleine Campaign Facebook group with the words “Happy 18th Birthday Madeleine!”

It was captioned: “We love you and we’re waiting for you and we’re never going to give up.”
