Madeleine McCann hunt: police have 'critical' lead

By Hayden Smith

British detectives working on the Madeleine McCann case are still pursuing a “critical” lead as the 10th anniversary of her disappearance approaches, a Scotland Yard chief has revealed.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said there are “significant investigative avenues” that are of “great interest”.

Madeleine vanished from the family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal on May 3, 2007 when she was three years old.

Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, of Rothley, Leicestershire, have vowed to “never give up” hope of finding their daughter.

In an interview nearly a decade on from the youngster’s disappearance, Mr Rowley said: “I know we have a significant line of inquiry which is worth pursuing, and because it’s worth pursuing it could provide an answer, but until we’ve gone through it I won’t know whether we are going to get there or not.”
