A new photograph of Madeleine McCann has been released.

The poignant shot shows little Maddie dressed as a pumpkin for Hallowe’en; it was been released by a campaign group, the Official Find Madeleine Campaign, and has the blessing of her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann.

The newly-released photograph shows a smiling Madeleine crouching down.  She is wearing an orange pumpkin outfit and holding a teddy bear.

The shot is said to be a favourite of her parents.  It was taken just months before the little girl disappeared aged three from a bedroom at the Praia da Luz resort in Portugal in 2007.
