Police pursue new Portugal searches in Madeleine McCann case

INVESTIGATORS scoured the banks of a reservoir in southern Portugal yesterday hoping to shed light on the 2007 disappearance of British toddler Madeleine McCann, which sparked international outcry but few solid leads despite years of inquiries.

Madeleine McCann was three years’ old when she went missing from her family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in 2007 while her parents dined at a nearby tapas bar.
