Spanish Cops Link Missing Boy To Madeleine McCann

POLICE searching for a missing seven-year-old boy in Spain are linking it with the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Jeremy Vargas vanished from his home in Gran Canaria just eight weeks before four-year-old Madeleine went missing in Praia da Luz.

Detectives hunting for the boy have told his parents they are now working closely with cops in Portugal.

The development adds weight to Kate and Gerry McCanns' insistence that their daughter was abducted - and that they were not responsible.

The link between the cases was revealed as dive teams searched a murky reservoir for Madeleine's body.

Jeremy's mother Ithaisa Suarez, 24, told yesterday of the striking similarities between the two cases - and her belief that both children may still be alive.

She said: "The specialist police team from Madrid have told me that they have been in contact with the Portuguese police investigating Madeleine. They are working on the theory that people involved in child trafficking are behind these cases."

Jeremy was playing on wasteground behind his home when he disappeared on March 10 last year.

Ithaisa insists both Jeremy and Madeleine, four, were snatched to order and likely sold on by a ruthless gang.

She was the first mother in similar anguished circumstances to write to the McCanns, both 39, when Madeleine disappeared last May. The two griefstricken families exchanged a series of letters.

Ithaisa wants to meet Kate and Gerry, as well as the parents of missing Mari Luz Cortes from Huelva, Spain, to present a united front in drawing international attention to their plight.

She said: "We need to stick together and make sure people understand we have not given up on our children being found."

Clarence Mitchell, the McCann family spokesman, said: "We are very grateful to the Vargas family for their continued support.

"Kate and Gerry have Jeremy in their thoughts an awful lot of the time."

Yesterday, divers continued to search a reservoir for Madeleine's body following a tip-off from an underworld source to a lawyer.

The search at Barragem do Arade - 40 miles from Praia da Luz - is being funded by Marcos Correia, who claims he was told she was murdered and thrown into a lake last May.

Correia, who would not reveal his source, said: "I am convinced this is the place."
