Kate and Gerry McCann have reportedly hired a private security firm to investigate the disappearance of their daughter, Madeleine.
Reports this morning say the couple have hired Control Risks Group to help their search for the four-year, who disappeared during a family holiday in Portugal last May.
CRG, which employs former SAS soldiers and MI5 agents, specialises in finding abduction victims.
The McCanns have been formally named as suspects in their daughter's disappearance, but they deny any involvement.
