Missing Madeleine: Portugal not planning to reopen inquiry

Text size Aa Aa

Authorities in Portugal say they are not planning to reopen their investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, unless there are significant new leads.

It comes after British police issued a computer-generated picture of how Madeleine might look now, five years after the three-year-old disappeared.

UK police began a new probe of their own last year.

On Wednesday, the officer leading the British inquiry said that 195 “investigative opportunities” had been identified from existing evidence and passed to Portuguese authorities.

Madeleine vanished from her family’s holiday apartment in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz in 2007, sparking a global hunt.
