Madeleine McCann cops searching reservoir ‘recover items’ from area

The German-led investigation linked to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann carried out last week resulted in the collection of a “number of items”. But, German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters said, the outcome of the first major probe into the vanishing of the British toddler carried out in years won’t be shared soon.  

He said: “A number of items were seized as part of the investigation. These will be evaluated in the coming days and weeks.

“Whether individual items actually have a connection to the Madeleine McCann case cannot yet be said.

“The investigations conducted here in Braunschweig against the 46-year-old suspect are expected to continue for a long time.”  

In his statement, Mr Wolters referred to German native Christian B. the prime suspect in Maddie’s case, who reportedly referred to the reservoir as his “little paradise”.

The convicted sex offender, currently behind bars in Germany for the rape of an elderly American tourist in 2005, has denied any involvement in the toddler’s disapperance.

Officers from the Gederal Criminal Police (BKA) led a three-day investigation at the Arade Dam in late May, working jointly with police in Portugal.

Detectives were seen searching the ground with sniffer dogs and radar, and the operation was supported also by divers.
