Terrain features of Praia da Luz, Lagos, spoiled the plans of the British investigators, who concluded that they need more time to search for traces of the body of Madeleine McCann. The searches, set to end Friday, will continue until the end of next week, at the request of Scotland Yard.

The Judiciary Police (PJ) and GNR, which ensures the surveillance and patrolling the area, have already been informed of this intention. The formal request is about to arrive at the National Directorate of the PJ after being authorized by the Public Prosecutor's Office.

The terrain is sandy, loamy and has large blocks of limestone, which has made the work of the experts from a private company hired by the British authorities very difficult.

Yesterday, the Forest Sappers from Lagos continued to cut back vegetation so ground samples could be collected, which were then analysed in the "mini labs" installed in tents on the ground, away from the eyes of journalists.

So far several bones of domestic animals have been found, but no evidence that supports the thesis of the British police that the body of Madeleine, vanished seven years ago from Praia da Luz, Lagos, may be buried there.
