MADDIE McCann's mum Kate raked in £84k in book sales in the past year - with every penny poured into the search for her missing daughter.

The book, Madeleine: Our Daughter's Disappearance and the Continuing Search for Her, was written in 2011 but has continued to sell well - with proceeds going directly into the search for Maddie.

Accounts for the firm, run by Kate and husband Gerry, confirmed that £84,096 was donated out of post tax royalties from the book in the latest financial year, ending March 2017.

It comes after a fresh cash grant was approved for cops to continue their investigations this week, with it believed the amount could be as much as £150,000.

A family spokesperson recently revealed that the couple were "incredibly grateful".

Spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: "They are very encouraged that the Met Police still believe there is work left to be done and they are incredibly grateful to the Home Office for providing an extra budget for the investigation."

Madeleine vanished on May 3, 2007, when her family, from Leicestershire, were holidaying in the Algarve, Portugal.

Parents Gerry and Kate left their three children – including toddler twins Sean and Amelie – sleeping in their apartment while they dined at a tapas bar - 120 metres away.

When Kate returned to check on the kids at around 10pm that evening, she discovered that Maddie was not in her bed and was missing.

No arrests have ever been made, with dozens of sightings of the young girl since she vanished.

So far the investigation into her disappearance, launched in May 2011, has cost the taxpayer more than £11.2million.

The inquiry, headed by Detective Chief Inspector Nicola wall, still has “important work to do and focused lines of investigation to be pursued.”

Kate and Gerry have never given up hope that their daughter could still be found alive. She would now be aged 14, nearly 15, with her birthday on May 12.

In April 2012, UK cops released a computer generated image of Maddie showing what she would look like aged nine.

A number of potential leads have emerged since the little girl vanished, but none amounted to anything and no arrests have ever been made.

Does the editor of the Sun realise that the public can now buy toilet rolls cheaper and more skin friendly than using his product?

She's written a follow up book has she? Haven't seen this on the best sellers list. Must remember to look at the airport next week.
