Madeleine McCann’s ex-GP mum Kate returns to work on NHS front line to help fight the Covid pandemic

MADELEINE McCann’s ex GP mum has returned to work and joined the NHS front line to help fight the coronavirus pandemic.

Kate McCann is happy “doing my little bit to help” as a doctor at hospitals in Leicester – one of the country’s worst-hit Covid cities.

As she battles her own torment still not knowing the fate of daughter Maddie more than 14 years after she vanished, she has “thrown herself back into a full time job to assist others in need,” a family pal said today yesterday.

Kate, who quit her job in 2007 to focus on the global hunt for missing Maddie, is “delighted” to be back on board during the continuing crisis.

At times Kate is working at the same hospital as husband Gerry, a renowned cardiologist.

A family source said: “Kate’s back working as a doctor. She’s helping out at her local hospitals now and not doing any surgery work.

“She has thrown herself back into a full time job to assist others in need. 

“There’s such a demand for qualified medics during these unprecedented times.

“Kate's enjoying doing her little bit to help but we hardly ever see her and Gerry now. They are both so busy.”

Three-year-old Maddie vanished from a holiday apartment in Portugal’s Praia da Luz on May 3, 2007. 

She had been left sleeping alone with her younger twin siblings while her parents were dining in a nearby tapas restaurant with pals.

But despite 14 years passing since her disappearance, Kate and Gerry will "never stop hoping" of finding their daughter.

Convicted paedophile and rapist Christian B, 44, remains under investigation as the prime suspect in Maddie’s abduction.

Earlier this week a German prosecutor revealed he is being probed over at least five other sex crimes.

He is being investigated over an attack on a girl, 10, as well as the murder of a teenager, 16, in Belgium.

In a new book, Wolters said German cops believed "there is good basis" to suspect the paedo is responsible for a sex attack on a girl aged 10.

He says the assault, which involved a naked man, happened six miles from where Madeleine disappeared in Praia da Luz just one month later.

Wolters also says officers in Belgium are probing the 44-year-old over the killing of Carola Titze, 16, in De Hana in 1996.

The sex offender is also a suspect in the 2004 rape of an Irish woman, 20 in Praia de Rocha, Portugal.

He also said German cops were looking at whether the suspect is connected to the disappearance of “German Maddie” – Inga Gehricke who vanished aged five in 2015.
