BRITISH cops hunting for Madeleine McCann today insist they are still confident of finding the missing girl after more than 10 years as their “investigation is continuing with focus and determination.”

Scotland Yard detectives are carrying on vital work on home ground insisting: “We don’t have to be in Portugal to find Madeleine.”

A Met Police spokesman said: “A lot of potentially significant images and material were captured on previous trips to Portugal and we are still working on all leads.”

Due to inquiry cutbacks there have been far fewer recent trips to The Algarve’s Praia da Luz from where three-year-old Maddie was snatched in May 2007.

The spokesman added: “We have spent less on flights and hotel accommodation because we haven’t needed to be in Luz to carry on our work. If there are policing reasons we need to be there we will.”

Police have just 11 weeks of funding left to try and crack the case. If they need more time and resources they will be plead with Home Secretary Amber Rudd to approve an extra cash boost for the second half of this financial year.

Met officers were given an £85,000 Home Office special grant injection in April to extend their £12 million inquiry codenamed Operation Grange until the end of September amid speculation they were closing in on a suspect.

It came as the Yard’s Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said they were still “critical leads” to pursue. Speaking to mark the milestone 10th anniversary of Maddie’s disappearance the top cop said there were “significant investigative avenues” that are of “great interest” to both the UK and Portuguese teams.

Maddie’s parents Kate and Gerry are said to be “buoyed up” and “extremely grateful” by the Met’s continuing efforts to find their daughter. They cling onto a glimmer of hope that their daughter – who would now be aged 14 – could still be alive.

A source close to the couple from Rothley, Leics, said: “It is heart breaking for Kate and Gerry to still not know after a decade what happened to Madeleine. But to know there is still an active police investigation doing their very best to help find her gives them a strength and comfort.

“It buoys them up and gives them hope particularly at a time when they have lost a long and bitter court battle against former Portuguese police officer Goncalo Amaral who is free to continue making ludicrous and hurtful claims about Madeleine’s disappearance.”

World renowned heart doctor Gerry and ex GP Kate, both 49, who has recently taken up a new medical job, still have regular updates from police working tirelessly on their daughter’s case.

The family source said: “Met police keep them informed of all developments and they remain very grateful and upbeat.”

Scotland Yard today took an unusual step of denying “a speculative non story” that the Maddie inquiry was grinding to a halt. A website claimed cops were struggling based purely on a Freedom of information request showing they had only make two flights to Portugal in the past year.

Flights reportedly cost £500 and £100 was spent on overnight expenses by senior investigating officer DCI Nicola Wall.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, the SY spokesman said defiantly: “We should not have to explain or justify how many times we are going to Portugal. Whatever we do, and we are doing our very best, someone always wants to criticise the actions of the police regarding Madeleine McCann.

“If we make two trips people say that’s not enough. If we make more that’s seen as being too many so whatever we do we can’t win! But seriously if we need to be in Portugal, in particular Praia da Luz, for policing reasons we will be there immediately. But right now we are working here, in London, on material captured as a necessary and essential part of the inquiry.

“The investigation continues with focus and determination. It is not winding down, it is not grinding to a halt. It is on going.

“And as Assistant Commissioner Rowley said in April we want to solve it, we want a breakthrough.”

Maddie vanished from her family’s holiday apartment while her parents were dining in a nearby tapas bar with pals. She had been left alone sleeping with her younger twin siblings Sean and Amelie.

AC Rowley vowed three months ago that his diminished team of officers on the Maddie inquiry would do “everything we reasonably can do to try and find an answer.”

He said: “All the different hypotheses have to remain open and we've got some thoughts on what we think the most likely explanations might be.”

They include that Maddie fell prey to a sex fiend or become the victim of a “burglary gone wrong.” One thing, for certain, he said is that the little girl did not simply wander out of the ground floor flat on her own accord as some criminal experts have suggested.

The Mr Rowley said there was “no definitive evidence” proving Maddie is alive or dead.

I like this bit:

Despite failing to unearth any significant clues leading to Maddie’s whereabouts, Mr Rowley insists they have achieved “an awful lot.”

He said: “I think people get seduced perhaps by what they see in TV dramas where the most complex cases are solved in 30 minutes or 60 minutes. What we started with here was something extraordinary.


Yes, it's amazing how many dumbo haters are convinced Columbo was a documentary series, and CSI is real. yernuts yernuts yernuts
