Sky news have some interesting comments from the Met...

The review has further identified both investigative and forensic opportunities to support the Portuguese.

"There is more than a handful of people of interest which could be explored further if only to be eliminated.


"The key things are to investigate the case and our work is happening to support the Portuguese."

Madeleine McCann News: British Police Have Identified Suspects, Top Detective Reveals
The Huffington Post UK | Posted: 17/05/2013 12:47 BST | Updated: 17/05/2013 15:19 BST

British detective have identified a "good number" of potential suspects in their hunt for missing Madeleine McCann, a top detective has said.

The Metropolitan Police was asked by the Prime Minister to join the search for the child, who went missing on May 3 in Praia da Luz in 2007 during a family holiday.

She would now be 10 and her parents insist the search for her is very much ongoing.

In a statement on Friday morning, Detective Chief Superintendent Hamish Campbell said: "The purpose of the review was to look at the case with fresh eyes and there is always real benefit in doing so.

"The review has further identified both investigative and forensic opportunities to support the Portuguese.

"There is more than a handful of people of interest which could be explored further if only to be eliminated.

"The key things are to investigate the case and our work is happening to support the Portuguese."

Campbell, who is about to retire from the force, also spoke about the case in an interview with the Evening Standard.

He told the paper the Met squad had done a “fantastic” job in identifying “further investigative and forensic opportunities.”

“We have to ask ourselves why are cases unsolved and, on many occasions, we find we passed the suspects by already and the suspect sits within our system,” he said.

The detective also said Madeleine could still be alive, adding: "You cannot exclude it."

As they marked the sixth anniversary of her disappearance earlier this month, her parents Kate and Gerry McCann said they remained hopeful as ever as Operation Grange continued, and that police seemed "more determined than ever".

''In many ways things haven't changed and you could argue that, with the Met review two years in, we are actually in a better place because so much more information has been collated and lots of pieces of the jigsaw have been filled,'' said Mr McCann.

The couple's hope was further reinforced by the recent discovery of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight in Ohio, a decade after they went missing in separate incidents.

When the women were found, the McCanns said the rescue of the women "reaffirmed" their hope of finding their daughter, which had never diminished.

"Their recovery is also further evidence that children are sometimes abducted and kept for long periods," they said in a statement.

"So we ask the public to remain vigilant in the ongoing search for Madeleine."

Thanks Chris! Seemed they came out of the woodwork pretty fast. Very annoying if the press mix and match quotes.

The literal quotes from SY are very interesting, mostly past tense as well. ' has been' etc. All done then?

Exactly. Nine names of 'persons of interest' within 30 seconds, and at no cost to the tax payer.

According to Sky News online, Clarence Mitchell said that the McCanns will not be commenting on any "operational matters".

So the 'usual' from Mitchell but this is truly good news. The Sky report online indicates, "New Suspects Identified". I truly hope the "new" include the "old".

Sky News Online reports under Breaking News "New Suspects Identified"..........."more follows......". I was expecting the "suspects" to be identified by Sky. I hope MUCH "more" follows.

Madeleine case review 'progress'

Scotland Yard detectives reviewing the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have said they are "encouraged by the progress we are making" and have identified at least "a handful of people of interest" in connection with the case.

Police 'encouraged by progress' in McCann case

Our investigative review is ongoing and we are encouraged by the progress we are making. We are reviewing a significant number of documents and continue to identify potential lines of inquiry.

We can confirm that as part of this process we have identified a number of persons of interest, but any suggestion that the MPS is asking the Portuguese Police to make arrests in connection with this inquiry is entirely inaccurate.

We are in regular contact with Kate and Gerry McCann and they are kept fully updated on the progress of our work.

We also continue to work closely with the Portuguese Police and are actively considering our next steps.

– A Metropolitan Police spokesman


Madeline disappeared from a holiday flat in Portugal six years ago on May 3, 2007 during a family holiday in Praia da Luz.

A spokesman for the McCann family, Clarence Mitchell, said: "Kate and Gerry
continue to be encouraged by Operation Grange and are very pleased by the work
the police are doing. Beyond that they won't be commenting on any operational
matters."
I remain a bit sceptical here, the DCS is retiring , he said " a handful", Redwood said initially 195 potential leads. We have James Murray doing an about turn and printing an interview with Murat who is calling for a Reconstruction which after 6 years would be worthless . If SY truly believe they have a good chance of finding a possible abductor, or what happened to Madeleine why have not the Portugese made a statement that they will re-open the case? The Oporto Police have been working with SY so would know if there was any new reason to open the case.
Could it be that the DCS is trying to justify the £4.25 million spent on this Review?

    Police have identified a number of suspects in the case of
    missing Madeleine McCann, Scotland Yard has disclosed.

    Officers investigating the case as part of a review have drawn up a list of
    "people of interest" they wish to speak to in connection with the disappearance
    of Madeleine in May 2007.

    The review was launched in 2011 in an attempt to find out what happened to
    the toddler who vanished from the family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on
    the Algarve.

    Detective Chief Superintendent Hamish Campbell said: "The purpose of the
    review was to look at the case with fresh eyes and there is always real benefit
    in doing so. The review has further identified both investigative and forensic
    opportunities to support the Portuguese.
    An artist's impression of what Madeleine might
    look like now
    "There is more than a handful of people of interest which could be explored
    further if only to be eliminated.

    "The key things are to investigate the case and our work is happening to
    support the Portuguese."

    A spokesman for the McCann family, Clarence Mitchell, said: "Kate and Gerry
    continue to be encouraged by Operation Grange and are very pleased by the work
    the police are doing. Beyond that they won't be commenting on any operational
    matters."

    The Portuguese authorities' handling of the original investigation was widely
    criticised.

    The police named Madeleine's parents, Kate and Gerry, as suspects but they
    were cleared in July 2008 when the attorney general ruled there was nothing to
    link them to their daughter's disappearance.
    Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry McCann in
    Praia da Luz in 2007
    Madeleine disappeared from the bedroom of the ground floor apartment that she
    was sharing with her brother and sister Sean and Amelie, who are twins, on the
    evening of May 3, 2007, just days before her fourth birthday.

    Her parents had been enjoying a holiday meal with friends at a tapas
    restaurant just 130 yards away.

    Mr and Mrs McCann, who have campaigned endlessly to find out what happened to
    their daughter, recently quietly celebrated her tenth birthday.

    Speaking at that time, Mrs McCann, a GP, said: "We still celebrate her and
    her being part of our lives. I go into Madeleine's room and I don’t even have to
    talk - I can just think. It's as it was really and I’m not ready to change
    it.

    "We always include Madeleine in everything. She is in my head and my heart
    every minute of every day."

    ================================

    Sky have gone OTT over their reporting....could it be they have bought the rights to serialise kates' new book.????
