Encouraged by new leads into her kidnapping now being worked by Scotland Yard, the couple has no intentions of requesting the certificate though. The little girl’s grandmother Susan Healy tells the Daily Mirror “she could be found.”

Added a spokesman for the grieving parents, “Kate and Gerry are fully aware of the declaration of death. They still believe that Madeleine is alive and are not applying for a certificate proving she is dead. That is the last thing on their minds.”
