London, Aug 25 : Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie wants to extend her support to the mother of missing Madeleine McCann.
The case of Madeleine, who went missing last year in Praia da Luz, Portugal, received huge publicity in the US.
The actress came to know about the case while shooting her new movie 'Changeling'.
The Oscar-winner has told her friends that she wants to share her "sympathy and support" privately with Madeleine's mother Kate.
"With six kids of her own now, Angelina has become acutely aware of the horror of a child going missing," the Daily Star quoted one of Jolie's close friends as saying.
"Prior to working on Changeling, she spoke to the mothers of children who haven't been found in California and Vermont, where the film was shot.
"She was intensely moved by their strength and hope, despite their despair.
"Angelina and Brad are really struck by the way her parents have moved heaven and earth to get the world on the look-out for their little girl.
"I think Angie just wants to give Kate a hug and say a few words of support from one mom to another.
"She doesn't pretend she possibly knows how Kate feels but she does have an inkling now and she realises the absolute nightmare the McCann family is going through," the friend added.
It is thought a possible meeting between the two would take place in London.
