It's crazy to think that it's been 15 years... I remember how the Madeleine McCann story was all over the news for weeks and weeks.

If Maddy was still alive, she'd be 18 years old. Nearly 19.

It's crazy how this case is still unsolved. Hopefully, they charge the German suspect.

16 years now... Praying they find her remains at that reservoir 🙏 Although it would be incredibly sad to know that she died in such a horrible manner, at least her family could lay her to rest and get some closure.

Take me back to May 3, 2007

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is May 3, 2007, and it's a Thursday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Taurus. The summer of 2007 has finally arrived. The weather has warmed up, and the evenings are brighter than usual. The school year is nearly finished.

In America, the song "Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne is at the top of the singles charts, while "Beautiful Liar" by Beyonce & Shakira is the number-one song in the UK. George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Disturbia is at the top of the box office. Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

On television, people are watching popular shows such as "King of the Hill", "Smallville", "Punk'd", and "Lost". Practically every teenager and adult has a MySpace or Bebo account. A rock music genre called "Emo" is extremely popular at the moment. The genre, which stands for "emotional hardcore", has created a subculture of "Emos" who dye their hair black and wear thick-framed glasses.

Meanwhile, in technology news, more and more people are beginning to use the Internet on their phones. This transition towards mobile Internet has been aided by the recent roll-out of faster 3G networks and the introduction of larger touchscreen phones. It's 2007, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Sean Kingston, Soulja Boy and Nelly Furtado. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Eddie Jamaal Griffin, Luciano Pavarotti, Colin McRae, and Sean Taylor would all still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "Scarface: The World Is Yours", "FIFA 07", "Final Fantasy XII", and "Pokémon Diamond Version". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "7th Heaven", "SpongeBob SquarePants", "Hannah Montana", and "The Hills". Children are playing with toys such as Bionicle LEGO, VideoNow (portable player), the Xbox 360, and the Nintendo Wii.
