The neighbour of Madeleine McCann, who vanished from Praia da Luz, Portugal on 3 May, has appealed to the civil engineering community to keep images of the missing girl in circulation, to help efforts to locate her.
Arthur Menzies, a sewage treatment efficiency manger at Severn Trent Water, lives next door to the McCanns in a small cul-de-sac in Rothley, Leicestershire. He wants engineering firms to keep pictures of Madeleine on their intranet sites, so that employees will be reminded of what she looks like.'I have persuaded Severn Trent to get a picture of Madeleine onto the intranet system, and I want to try to ensure images are included on the systems of other consultants and contractors, and other large companies,' he says. 'It is important to keep her image in circulation, and companies can help by posting her picture,' he said.Menzies moved to Rothley in November 2006, and has a two-year-old, the same age as Madeleine's twin sisters. 'I felt an obligation to do something,' he says. He has already persuaded a Spanish bank to print 200,000 leaflets featuring Madeleine's picture.Madeleine has one very distinctive feature - she has 'coloboma' or cat-eye syndrome in her right eye, where a strip of her iris is missing at the 7 o'clock position.Contact crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or +44 1883 731 336 if you think you have seen Madeleine.
