KATE McCann and husband Gerry have told their twins
"everything" about Maddie's disappearance and says
their children want their sister back.
Despite growing up without her, Kate, 47, said Amelie and Sean, now 11, still remember Maddie and talk about her often.
Since Maddie went missing in May 2007 from the family's holiday apartment in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz, the couple has strived to keep their other children in the loop.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Kate - who's backing the Child Rescue Alert campaign to help track down missing kids - explained: "The twins are doing really well.
"They’ve grown up essentially without Madeleine, knowing their sister is missing and they want her back.
"They are up to date, they know everything, they know if we are meeting police.
"There is nothing kept from them."
