Months after Madeleine went missing, another child, Mari Luz Cortés, went missing, though in very different circumstances [in a different Country as matter of fact]. Sadly she has since been found dead. The McCanns printed posters of Madeleine together with Mari Luz - without gaining the parents’ prior permission. Her parents were very upset, and complained.
Clarence Mitchell’s outrage with the Cortés family:
“It is shameful that Mari Luz’s father has brought himself to complain,” was the reaction of Clarence Mitchell, the spokesman for the McCann couple, in response to the request from Juan Jose Cortés that the posters with the photo of his daughter beside Madeleine should not be distributed.
