“Praia da Luz is connected to the surrounding areas and has made some short spells in Germany,” the police said. Said.
“It took more than 13 years for Madeleine’s disappearance, and none of us can imagine how it should have been for his family without knowing what it was or where he was.”
“After his ten-year anniversary, Met received information about a German man known to be in and around Praia da Luz. We are working with our colleagues in Germany and Portugal, and he suspects Madeleine’s disappearance.” Detective Chief Inspector Mark Cranwell said on Wednesday.
The police also revealed details of the two cars the suspect had accessed and used during Madeleine McCann’s disappearance.
