The parents of a missing British child have thanked Ben Affleck for postponing the release of his new movie, which is about the same subject. 

Gone Baby Gone was shelved in the U.K. after Madeleine McCann, 4, went missing from a vacation resort in Portugal in May.

The movie was directed by Affleck and stars his brother Casey as a private detective searching for a missing 4-year-old girl.

Gerry and Kate McCann have issued a statement through their spokesman--thanking Affleck.

It reads, "We thank him for being thoughtful enough and sensitive enough to Gerry and Kate's position to make such a commercial decision.

"Obviously, we hope Madeleine will be found very soon to enable Kate and Gerry to move on, but also to enable him and the movie to go ahead in due course."
