Madeleine McCann, 3 years of age taken in 2007, still missing
UK Police Identify New Suspect in 2007 Disappearance of Madeleine McCann
A 43-year-old German prisoner who traveled around Portugal in a van is now the focus of a police investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann 13 years ago.
“He is connected to the area of Praia da Luz and surrounding regions, and spent some short spells in Germany,” the police statement said. “It’s more than 13 years since Madeleine went missing and none of us can imagine what it must be like for her family, not knowing what happened or where she is.”
Officials are looking for information about the van and the suspect’s other vehicle, a Jaguar car. He transferred the Jaguar to another person’s name after the girl went missing.
UK investigators added that German officials took the lead in a “murder inquiry” in the girl’s case. The suspect, who is not being named, was in prison for an “unrelated matter” and has “previous convictions,” but further details were not provided.
The suspect, who was 30 years old at the time, went to Algarve, Portugal, where the girl was last seen, on numerous occasions between 1995 and 2007. He lived in a camper van and had a “transient lifestyle,” officials said.
