Police granted more money to continue Madeleine McCann search

Madeleine McCann went missing in May 2007, now almost 11 years later police have been granted more money to continue their ongoing investigation into her disappearance.

Parents Kate and Gerry McCann, appealed for the search to continue for their daughter who was just 3 when she vanished from their holiday apartment in  Praia da Luz, Portugal.

Government funding of £154,000 has been granted from October 2017 until the end of March this year for the search.

The Met’s application for a Special Grant funding for Operation Grange will be granted, following former Prime Minster David Cameron’s request to “bring their expertise” to the request made by the McCann family.

In 2013 four people were made identified suspects, but after being interviewed by Portuguese Officers and the Met Police, no further action was taken.

Following the 10th anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance, in May 2017 Police said 40,000 documents had been reviewed and more than 600 individuals investigated.

Madeleine’s parents have vowed never to give up trying to find their daughter.
