Portuguese Authorities To Reopen Case of Missing British Girl

Madeleine McCann vanished in 2007


It is five long years since police in Portugal gave up the search for Madeleine McCann.

They closed the file on the three-year-old who vanished in May 2007 during a family holiday in the resort of Praia da Luz.

Now, in a dramatic development, they are seeking permission to reopen the investigation which they shelved in 2008.
