Progress: Scotland Yard boss Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe has admitted that there has been movements in the McCann case, suggesting that officers are closing in on the person that abducted her
Britain's most senior police officer has suggested his officers are closing in on the people who abducted Madeleine McCann.
UK police believe they've made a major breakthrough in the Madeleine McCann case, but it has caused authorities more frustration.
After re-opening the case into the missing child, police believe they've identified the men responsible for her kidnapping, the Daily Mail reported.
Madeleine McCann went missing from Praia de Luz, Portugal, in 2007.
LONDON -- Detectives searching for new leads in the 2007 disappearance of Madeleine McCann have received 5,000 calls.
A key suspect in the abduction of Madeleine McCann was fired from the holiday complex where she vanished after police warned staff: “You can’t trust this man.”
Junkie and ex-jailbird Euclides Monteiro was sacked by the Ocean Club in Praia da Luz, Portugal, the year before the blonde three-year-old disappeared on May 3, 2007.
Two convicted Scottish killers who were questioned over the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have been interviewed by Spanish detectives in connection with another missing child.
Detectives in Portugal say the data shows that Euclides Monteiro, a convicted thief and heroin user, was close to or at the Ocean Club in Praia da Luz on the night Madeleine was snatched in May 2007.
Paula said: “He was always swapping or selling his phones around that time.
“The phone isn’t proof he was near Madeleine McCann’s apartment. I know he wasn’t there.’’
Monteiro’s widow Luisa, who lives in Lagos with their 10-year-old son, was asked “question after question” about her late partner’s movements.
She said: “They are trying to make a dead man a scapegoat.”
Madeleine’s doctor parents Kate and Gerry, both 45, from Rothley, Leics, have declined to comment.
