UK police study mobile phone records in hunt for missing Madeleine McCann

Text size Aa Aa

More than six years after the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, British police hope mobile phone records may trigger a breakthrough in their investigation.

Madeleine was just short of her fourth birthday when she went missing from her room at a holiday resort in the Portuguese Algarve in May 2007, while her parents were dining with friends at a nearby restaurant.

A global search failed to find her. Now, with 41 potential suspects, UK police are analysing thousands of phone records from the resort at the time.

It comes after Madeleine’s mum Kate began libel proceedings against former Portuguese detective Goncalo Amaral.

Earlier this year British police said they had some new leads after a review of the case, which had been closed in 2008.
