Madeleine McCann's parents are "absolutely delighted" with the "overwhelming" response to a fresh appeal for information about her disappearance, they have said.
In a statement, Kate and Gerry McCann said they are "genuinely hopefully" that one or more of the responses to last night's BBC Crimewatch appeal would lead to a major breakthrough in the investigation.
Police today said they have received more than 730 calls and 212 emails in response to last night's appeal, and detectives are now working through them.
In a statement issued through their spokesman, Kate and Gerry McCann said: "We are absolutely delighted with the overwhelming public response to Crimewatch, which was broadcast last night.
"We know that the public desperately want to help the search for Madeleine.
"We are genuinely hopeful that one of more of these responses will lead to a major breakthrough in the investigation."
They added: "If anyone was in Praia da Luz around the time of Madeleine's abduction and has not spoken to the Metropolitan Police, or if they know who any of the e-fits might be, please have the courage to come forward and speak to the police in confidence."
