Where are Madeleine McCann’s twin siblings now and how old were they when she disappeared? – The Sun
MADDIE McCann vanished from her family’s holiday apartment in Portugal in 2007 where she was sleeping alongside her twin siblings Sean and Amelie.
Now aged 15, the twins have grown up without knowing their older sister who is still missing.
Where are the twins now?
Sean and Amelie live with parents Kate and Gerry at their home in the town of Loughborough in Leicestershire.
They attend a Catholic secondary school the area which retains a place for their sister Madeleine, who would be aged 17 now, if she is ever found.
The twins are both aspiring athletes and have competed in triathlons and country crossing racing.
Were the twins awake when Maddie vanished?
In the Netflix documentary The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, it is claimed Sean and Amelie were asleep during Maddie’s suspected abduction.
In the film, Portuguese police discuss how the twins were also said to have slept through the commotion which followed mum Kate discovering their sister was missing.
This led to speculation that the twin babies had been sedated by whoever was responsible for Maddie’s disappearance – although this claim has never been proven.
How old were the twins in 2007?
Sean and Amelie were aged only two at the time of their sister’s disappearance on May 3, 2007.
Former GP Kate, now a medical worker, said her twins have “grown up essentially without Madeleine but knowing their sister is missing and they want her back.”
The anguished mum, speaking in the past to promote her charity Missing People of which she is an ambassador, added: “They have their own friends and they keep busy and they’re really sporty but their only wish is for their big sister to come home.
“We miss our complete family of five.
“As a family 98 per cent of the time we’re busy. I don’t know if that’s a conscious thing but it helps.
"The urge to look for Madeleine absolutely hasn’t changed at all.”
