It’s impossible to imagine what life must be like for the parents of Rahma El-Dennaoui and Madeleine McCann. Losing a child is a torment. Losing them without a trace, with no explanation, would be doubly so.
It’s more than six years since little Rahma was put to bed with her sisters in their Sydney home, not to be seen since. Despite years of hard effort by the NSW police, the only solid sign of what might have happened is a cut or tear in the fly screen above her bed.
