SLIDESHOW: Where Is Madeleine McCann?

Kate and Gerry McCann also posted new pictures of the little girl showing her smiling and feeding a chocolate lollipop to her younger sister Amelie.

The couple said: "Christmas is a time for children. Please help us bring ours back."

In a series of messages greeting visitors to their Find Madeleine Web site, the McCanns added: "There will be a spare place at the Christmas table again this year."

"If you know anything - do the right thing and help us fill it."

"There's only one thing Madeleine wants this Christmas - and that's to be back home."

"If you know where she might be, please help."

Madeleine was three years old when she disappeared from her family's holiday apartment in Portugal, while her parents dined close by with friends.
