Australian Federal Police not investigating Madeleine McCann case

THE Australian Federal Police (AFP) say they are not investigating a local connection to Madeleine McCann's disappearance.

Four-year-old Madeleine vanished from her family's rented holiday apartment in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz on May 3, 2007, while her parents dined with friends at a nearby restaurant.

British media say a private investigators search is underway for an Australian woman who may be able to shed light on the case.

It's been reported the private detectives have been told an Australian woman had a late night chat to a British man outside a bar in Barcelona in Spain, three days after the young girl went missing.

The witness only came forward in recent weeks, the reports said.

"This woman is reported to have said something highly significant to the British witness; significant enough for us to launch a hunt for her," one of the detectives said.

"The British man has only recently come forward. There appear to be a number of good reasons for that. But he has been checked out thoroughly and seems credible," the Mirror online said.

The AFP said today the case was not being followed up locally.

"We haven't received a request for any assistance," a spokeswoman said. "So at this stage we are not investigating any of the allegations made ... this morning."

Investigators hired by Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry McCann are expected to hold a press conference in London to release images of the person being sought.

The McCanns believe Madeleine is alive and can be found unless they are shown clear evidence to the contrary.

Portuguese police closed their investigation a year ago.

  1. um turista inglês bêbado às tantas da noite num bar de barcelona, tenta engatar uma fulana que parece a Victoria Beckham. a fulana que nunca o viu mais gordo desata a falar no cado Maddie, com sotaque australiano e um Espanhol perfeito, possivelmente Catalão (...). Dois anos depois, o dito turista inglês decide contactar os McDetectives, e é lançada uma "caça" à mulher

    se isto não é a gozar, nem sei o que seja

    In 1987 MURDOCH won the Australian News Group....Does he still have this is he still in control? If so explains why we are now in Australia.

    Maddie will never be seen or linked to Iran for instance.

    I see the TROLLS are out in full on the Mail today.

    IRONSIDE....

  3. Of course they aren't investigating this new lead.There's nothing to investigate.This is just another big fat lie from team mccann.They need to make the public believe they are still investigating their daughter's disappearence.That's what all the innocent parents would do, right?
