A former RUC detective who has played a central role in the investigation into Madeleine McCann's disappearance has said people should remain hopeful that she could still be alive.

Jim Gamble was speaking after Madeleine's parents denied receiving a letter from German investigators stating there is evidence or proof she is dead.

Widespread media reports claimed the correspondence saying that German police have "concrete evidence" Madeleine is dead but cannot reveal what it is had been sent to the couple.
