It is more than 13 years since Madeleine McCann, then aged three, disappeared

Three-year-old Madeleine McCann vanished from a Portuguese holiday apartment in May 2007.

In the intervening years, a huge, costly police operation has taken place across much of Europe.

Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry McCann previously told the BBC they would do “whatever it takes, for as long as it takes” to find their daughter, who went missing 13 years ago.
