After three days, Portuguese, German and British police officers in the area of the reservoir lake in the south of Portugal ended the latest investigation in the case of the British girl Madeleine McCann, who disappeared in 2007.
Portuguese police said Yes will hand over the collected material to the German authorities.
At the same time, they did not provide any details of what they were collecting or what the goal of the operation was. Soil samples and pieces of cloth were reportedly collected in the fenced-off area, but nothing linked to the case was found, Portuguese local media reported, according to French news agency AFP.
The investigation continued this week at the request of German authorities who, as of 2020, claim Yes they have solid evidence for this, Yes is a girl known as Maddie who disappeared when she was three years old, dead. They assume Yes for example, a German multiple sex offender is involved Christian Brückner.
He is currently serving a prison sentence in Germany for the rape of a 72-year-old American tourist in 2005, also in Praia Yes Luz in Portugal, where Maddie also disappeared two years later. According to Portuguese media reports, Brückner is said to be regularly staying near the reservoir lake on the river Arad.
The reservoir lake is about 50 kilometers away from the place where the girl disappeared. The police already examined the surroundings and the lake in 2008, but did not find any traces. Even an extensive international search operation for Sadov did not bear fruit, and no one has yet been charged with the girl’s disappearance.
Investigators believe Yes Maddie was probably abducted from the vacation home where her family was staying. During that period, the 45-year-old Brückner visited this part of Portugal several times, where, among other things, he broke into hotel rooms and sold drugs.
