His pain at coming home

Gerry McCann yesterday told of his heartbreak at having to return home.

Missing Madeleine's father, 39, is to go back to work as a hospital heart specialist in Leicester.

He says he and wife Kate, 38, have to balance their desperate wish to find Madeleine, four, with the needs of their two-year-old twins Sean and Amelie. He added: "The difficulty we have is emotionally leaving Portugal as a family of four when we came as a family of five."

Madeleine was snatched from her bed in the resort of Praia da Luz on the Algarve 115 days ago. Speaking at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, Gerry stressed he still believes she is alive, but said the campaign to find his daughter would now be scaled down.

Meanwhile, the McCanns faced more wild accusations in Portuguese papers - with one claiming sniffer dogs had detected the scent of a corpse in their hire car. But a family pal raged: "It's rubbish."
