Following a similar appeal on Norway's TV2 channel on Monday, a Norwegian woman has claimed to have seen a girl resembling Madeleine with a strange man when she was on holiday in Spain two years ago.

The woman contacted former police superintendent Finn Abrahamsen with the tip-off after the ex-policeman appeared on TV2 to discuss a new suspect in the case.

Mr Abrahamsen said: "There was a lady who had been on holiday in Spain two years ago.

"She was at a shopping mall and believed she observed the missing girl with an older man. She's pretty sure this could be Madeleine McCann.

"It is a huge challenge and we should not have too high expectations, but we can't give up until we've tried everything. We have already seen that it flows in tips from throughout Europe, and it becomes even more focused on Germany and Holland.

"We can hope that more people will react to some of the important tips that has come. For example, the observations of a man who has been carrying away a child.

"If more tips with similar observations comes in, it can be very interesting."

Mr Abrahamsen urged anyone with information to contact their local police who would liaise with Scotland Yard.

"We have a good contact with British police," he said. "This good contact has lasted over the years. It is easy for the police in Norway to pass on tips. So contact the Norwegian police, and ask them to pass it on."

Detectives have released two e-fit images of the man based on the accounts of two separate witnesses.

Both described seeing him in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on the evening of the three-year-old's disappearance on May 3, 2007.

He is said have been seen walking towards the sea carrying a child of a similar age to Madeleine.

Another one who waited years before acting on the "sighting"! Have these people all fallen into a coma and then woke up?

She must have been holed up in her cave until now.

Ye gods, what a boat load of rowlocks.

It's like Eurovision. Can we not have a competition on a Saturday night? Countries enter their best sightings, and all the other countries have a vote at the end. The winner gets to interview the McCanns live on TV and host it next year. The beauty of it is that we will get nil points every time so we will not have to endure them on our screens anymore. Who's up for it?

Curiously, this isn't the first Norwegian woman to 'spot Maddie'.

The first one, Mari Olli Pollard (husband from Groby Leicestershire), actually lived in Spain and 'spotted' her in Morocco.

What are the chances, eh?
