Madeleine McCann latest – Cops dismiss claims that body will be found in woods despite psychic's theory
17th June 2021

GERMAN cops have dismissed a psychic's claims that Madeline McCann is buried in a forest just six miles from where she vanished – because they have already searched it, the Sun Online can exclusively reveal.

Michael Schneider, 50, who has successfully located the remains of several missing people, has given police the exact coordinates of where he thinks her body is in Portugal.

Maddie cops have ruled out the "wild claims" by the clairvoyant that the world's most famous missing child is buried in woodland close to Praia Da Luiz. 

But a source close to the Maddie investigation has told the Sun Online that officers in Portugal have warned their German counterparts the area in question has already been searched. 

The police probing Madeleine McCann suspect Christian B vow there will be "no let up" – despite him whining he is being persecuted.

And detectives believe his prison rant is a "clear sign" he’s “cracking under the weight of suspicion”.

    WHERE CAN YOU WATCH MADELEINE MCCANN DOCUMENTARIES?

    The popular Netflix documentary came out in 2019, called “The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann” features 8 episode full of details surrounding the case.

    WHY IS THE MADELEINE McCANN CASE FAMOUS

    The disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine McCann is a case which shocked the world.

    The little girl vanished from her holiday flat in Portugal on May 3, 2007 while her parents Kate and Gerry McCann dined in a nearby restaurant and 12 years on her whereabouts remains a mystery.

    In the Netflix documentary The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, it is claimed that parents Kate and Gerry, who are both doctors, had contacts within the UK media and used them to publicise the case.

    However, interest in the story took on an unprecedented momentum when British man Robert Murat and then Kate and Gerry were made suspects.

    Maddie’s parents and Mr Murat have always strongly denied any involvement in the child’s disappearance and were cleared of any wrongdoing by Portuguese investigators.

    The little girl, who would now be aged 18, has never been found and interest in the case remains strong.

    Michael Schneider, 50, who has successfully located the remains of several missing people, has given police the exact coordinates of where he thinks her body is in Portugal.

    But the Sun Online can exclusively reveal that Maddie cops have ruled out the “wild claims” by the clairvoyant that the world’s most famous missing child is buried in woodland close to Praia Da Luiz.

    According to reports, German prosecutor Christian Wolters, who is now leading the Maddie hunt, has previously used clairvoyants to aid other cases.

    But a source close to the Maddie investigation has told the Sun Online that officers in Portugal have warned their German counterparts the area in question has already been searched.

    MADELEINE’S PARENTS ‘STILL BELIEVE IN MIRACLES’

    Madeleine McCann’s mum and dad said they “still believe in miracles” in a poignant post to mark the missing girl’s 18th birthday in April.

    Kate and Gerry, both 53, haven’t given up hope almost 14 years after Madeleine disappeared in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz on May 3, 2007.

    She was just three when she vanished.

    In a post on the Official Find Madeleine Campaign Facebook page, her mum and dad, of Rothley, Leics, said: “Never stop believing in hope because miracles happen every day.

    “Want to send a heartfelt thank you to all who continue to be by our side.”

    HOW MUCH MONEY HAS BEEN SPENT ON THE INVESTIGATION?

    So far the police investigation to try and find the missing three-year-old girl has cost £12.5 million and a decision on whether to approve further funding, believed to be an extra £300,000, is pending, the Daily Star reports.

    Doctors Kate and Gerry were reportedly told by the Metropolitan Police that they are continuing to treat their daughter as a missing person.

    JUSTICE FOR HAZEL CONTINUED

    Now, prosecutor Hans-Christian Wolters has said it will probably just take a little bit more time before he solves the horrific attack on holiday rep Hazel Behan – in which Christian B is thought to be involved.

    Speaking to Spanish- based Olive Press English newspaper, Wolters confirmed the convicted rapist is a suspect in five crimes.

    Christian B was convicted in December 2019 of raping a woman, 72, in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2005.

    He is currently serving a seven-year sentence for his crimes.

    However, it is believed Wolters could charge him with Hazel’s rape, along with two separate child abuse cases, relating to incidents which took place before the kidnapping of Maddie.

    MADELEINE McCANN SUSPECT CHRISTIAN B WILL BE CHARGED WITH RAPING IRISH WOMAN WITHIN THREE MONTHS

    Prime Madeleine McCann suspect Christian B will be charged with raping Irish woman Hazel Behan within three months, a prosecutor says.

    Hazel was just 20 years old when she was raped in her flat in Praia da Rocha, around 30 minutes away from the holiday village from which Maddie went missing.

    Madeleine McCann was just three when she vanished in 2007.

    When the Dublin native heard the details of German sex fiend Christian B’s rape of a 72-year-old American woman in Praia da Luz in 2005, she realised it was a carbon copy of what happened to her.

    The attacker was German, 6ft 1in, carried a 12 inch machete and was wearing tights.

    The Irish woman contacted the police and waived her anonymity, in order to tell the whole country of her ordeal.

    ‘CONCRETE EVIDENCE’

    German prosecutors have insisted they have “concrete evidence” he is their man and that Madeleine is dead.

    Cops have however declined to reveal what evidence they have she was killed, with British police still treating her vanishing as a missing persons probe.

    Chief prosecutor in the case Hans Christian Wolters declined to confirm or deny if they have found any sign of Madeleine in videos and pictures found on Christian B’s property.

    HOW OLD WOULD MADELEINE MCCANN BE NOW?

    Madeleine would have turned 18 on May 12, 2021.

    In April 2012, UK cops released a computer-generated image of Madeleine showing what she would look like aged nine.

    In 2019 updated age progression images were uploaded on social media but Kate and Gerry said the images of Madeleine were bogus.

    Kate and Gerry warned the fake images were neither “commissioned nor endorsed” by them or Scotland Yard’s Operation Grange team.
