BREAKING: Man named as ‘formal suspect’ in Madeleine McCann case

There’s been a major breakthrough into the disappearance of missing child Madeleine McCann.

A man in Germany has reportedly been formally identified as a suspect in the little girl’s disappearance, with Portuguese prosecutors announcing the development this morning.

It’s the first time Portuguese prosecutors have identified an official suspect.


The breakthrough comes almost 15 years after Madeleine vanished during a holiday with her parents Kate and Gerry McCann, and her twin siblings Sean and Amelie, in Portugal on May 3, 2007.

She was just days away from celebrating her fourth birthday when she vanished.

Despite ongoing investigations, there has been no signs of the youngster and no one has ever been charged.

More details are expected to be released throughout the day.
