The McCann family is made up of Kate, Gerry, Madeleine, and a set of twins. Although they are from the U.K., when Madeleine went missing they were still fairly far from home.
The family was vacationing in Portugal, along with Madeleine’s siblings and some family friends.
They had gone on holiday with a group of their friends and knew Portugal well. It was one of their favorite vacation spots. However, it shortly would be one of their least favorite places.
