After hearing about Jayme Closs' miraculous escape from captivity, Madeleine McCann's parents are still holding out hope that they will one day find their missing girl.

This Friday, hours after Jayme, 13, returned home to her relieved relatives after three months of being tortured by her kidnapper, the official Find Maddie Campaign posted a message about her reappearance.

"#HOPE Such great news. Jayme is an example of why we never lose hope and never stop searching," read the post.

As readers recall, 3-year-old Maddie disappeared from her family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal in 2007, while her parents were eating with pals at a restaurant nearby. Her siblings were in the flat with her but were not abducted.

Maddie would be 15 years old today, and though her case has not been resolved, her parents have not given up hope.

"We miss Madeleine dearly, Cristmas will never be the same without her, but we will continue to make the best of what we have," they wrote on "May 2019 be a peaceful and positive one for us all."
