The parents of missing four-year-old Madeleine McCann have said they are still confident their daughter will be found in their first interview to journalists since their daughter's abduction.
Gerry and Kate McCann told the BBC in an emotional interview that "no-one will feel as guilty as we do" about their daughter's abduction on May 3rd but underlined their continued determination to go on searching for her.
"If anything really bad had happened we would have found her by now. It's not hard to continue believing that," Mr McCann said. "The alternative would be giving up and we will not give up ourselves."
Ms McCann added: "We need to believe that she's coming back to us."
He defended the decision he and his wife had taken in leaving their children alone in the apartment, saying a "line of sight" existed.
"It was not dissimilar to having dinner in your garden. If you thought for a minute that someone could abduct your child of course you could never have left them," he said.
The couple explained that the worst feeling they experienced in the immediate aftermath of her abduction from her hotel bed in the holiday town of Praia da Luz in the Algarve, Portugal, was one of "helplessness".
"As we started taking control of some issues, particularly influencing the publicity side of it, you start to feel there are certain things under your control," Mr McCann explained.
As press attention on the case begins to flag the parents now plan on embarking across Europe to maintain the media's focus on their search.
Her parents have remained in Portugal as police continue their investigations but are now expected to travel outside of the country.
A statement from the McCanns on the website findmadeleine.com reports that they are "finalising plans for interviews in areas of Europe where the coverage of Madeleineâ€™s disappearance has been limited". It is hoped that further press coverage will trigger memories of possible sightings among the public.
"We will travel wherever is necessary to ensure people across Europe recognise Madeleine's picture and we will encourage them to come forward with any information that may lead to her safe return," Mr McCann said on behalf of him and his wife on Tuesday.
"Kate and I are nowhere near ready to leave Portugal and head home. We don't know that [Madeleine's] in Portugal and therefore we have to consider the possibility that she has crossed borders."
The website, which hopes to raise awareness of missing Madeleine, has had over 125 million hits since it was set up.
Today's interview comes just days after the couple travelled to the shrine of Fatima, Portugal's holiest site, to pray for the safe return of their child
