After 13 years of searching: is Maddie’s disappearance now clearing up?

The disappearance of little Maddie – Madeleine Beth McCann – from 2007 is making headlines again! The British girl disappeared from a Portuguese holiday resort in Praia de Luz at the age of three – and has been missing since then.

But until then it was a long way – Promiflash has summarized the most important stages of the missing person case for you.

Maddie’s disappearance and first police investigation
While the McCanns were on vacation in the Algarve in Portugal in 2007, their little daughter Madeleine disappeared. After Kate and Gerry After spending the evening of May 3rd in a restaurant, they noticed that their children had disappeared from the apartment. The parents informed the Portuguese police. The police then searched the apartment complex and the surrounding area for several days. The commissioners suspected a kidnapping.

International search
The parents particularly saw media attention as a way to find their daughter. For example, they called on British television for help from the population in the hope of finding new clues. However, their presence in the media and the involvement of the public also met with criticism.
