Madeleine McCann: UK Police Make New Request to Portuguese Officials

UK police have made another request to Portuguese authorities in the case of missing girl Madeline McCann.

The Daily Mail reported that another letter was sent to Portuguese officials, the country’s attorney general has said.

Officers are also looking to go to Algarve next month.

The content of the new letter was not disclosed.

The Lisbon-based Attorney General’s Office told the Mail last night of the letter.

“The content of the request presented by the British authorities is classified, therefore the Prosecutor General’s Office have no comments on such matter,” the office said.

According to The Mirror newspaper, Scotland Yard police will go to Praia da Luz in what is described as a “make-or-break moment,” sources said.

Police will interview seven key suspects in the 2007 disappearance.

A source told the paper: housands of pieces of evidence have been re-examined by the Scotland Yard team to get to this stage. This is far from a scatter-gun approach.

“The detectives are acutely aware there is a finite amount of money for the investigation and that they need results. It is hoped they are on the right track to achieving those objectives.”

McCann disappeared May 3, 2007 at the resort. She was 3 at the time.
