ABOVE: No-one has been arrested since
Madeleine McCann, then aged three, went missing
DETECTIVES believe they can solve the Madeleine McCann mystery nearly
five years after she disappeared.
Scotland Yard’s “Maddie Squad” are reviewing all evidence including
video interviews and witness statements.
A Met Police report, including eight new leads, will make
recommendations later in the year. Portuguese officers are expected to
reopen the case.
No-one has been arrested since Maddie, then aged three, went missing
from an apartment in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz in 2007.
A source close to the investigation said: “Their attitude is that it is
solvable. The approach is very professional. They want definitive
answers and are working extremely hard to get to the truth. The
investigation is gathering momentum.”
Det Ch Insp Andy Redwood is leading 36 detectives and sources say he has
an “excellent” working relationship with Portuguese cops.
Leicestershire Police, who worked closely with Portuguese detectives,
handed over all evidence on the case to the Yard.
Meanwhile, mum Kate McCann will release the paperback version of her
book Madeleine on May 10.
Also next month, she will attend a reception at Downing Street where
David Cameron will back International Missing Children’s Day on May 25.
