British detectives have a 'significant' line of inquiry in the Madeleine McCann case, ten years after the youngster went missing.
Scotland Yard chief Mark Rowley said there are still 'critical' leads that are of 'great interest' in the investigation into the three-year-old's disappearance from a holiday apartment in Portugal on May 3, 2007.
He also ruled out that her parents Gerry and Kate McCann were involved in her abduction and said that she could still be alive.
The comments come after the McCanns released a statement earlier today saying they still hold out hope of finding out what happened to their daughter.
In an interview nearly a decade on from her disappearance, Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner ruled out Maddie's parents as possible suspects.
He said: ‘The parents’ involvement: that was dealt with at the time by the original investigation by the Portuguese.
'We’re happy that’s completely dealt with and there is no reason whatsoever to reopen that or start rumours that’s a line of investigation.
'The McCanns are the parents of a missing girl and we’re trying to get to the bottom of what happened.’
Mr Rowley said there was no 'definitive evidence' as to whether Madeleine is alive or dead.
He added: 'That's why we describe it as a missing person inquiry. We understand why, after this many years, people will be pessimistic, but it's important we keep an open mind.'
The officer added that however Madeleine left the apartment, she was abducted.
'She wasn't old enough to make a decision to set off and start her own life,' he said.
Mr Rowley also revealed that detectives were pursuing new information regarding the youngster's disappearance.
He said: 'I know we have a significant line of inquiry which is worth pursuing, and because it's worth pursuing it could provide an answer, but until we've gone through it I won't know whether we are going to get there or not.
'Ourselves and the Portuguese are doing a critical piece of work and we don't want to spoil it by putting titbits of information out publicly.'
He declined to expand on the nature of the working theories or reveal whether any suspects were currently being considered, saying that disclosing further detail would not help the investigation.
Mr Rowley said: 'We've got some critical lines of inquiry, those link to particular hypotheses, but I'm not going to discuss those because those are very much live investigation.
'We've got some thoughts on what we think the most likely explanations might be and we are pursuing those.'
He described the possibility of a 'burglary gone wrong' was a 'sensible hypothesis' which has not been 'entirely ruled out'.
The senior officer was asked about the theory of a sex predator being responsible for Madeleine's disappearance.
Mr Rowley said: 'That's been one key line of inquiry. The reality is in the modern world in any urban area... you will find sex offenders who live nearby. And those coincidences need to be sifted out, what's a coincidence and what may be linked to the investigation that you are currently doing.
'Offences which may be linked have to be looked at and either ruled in or ruled out.'
Mr Rowley said there was still a 'lot unknown' in the case, adding: 'All the different hypotheses have to remain open.'
Police have looked at more than 600 individuals who were identified as being potentially significant to Madeleine's disappearance.
Madeleine vanished from the family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal on May 3 2007 when she was three years old.
Her parents, from Rothley in Leicestershire, have vowed to 'never give up' hope of finding their daughter.
British officers have sifted through some 40,000 documents and looked at more than 600 individuals since 2011.
In 2013, the Met Police team identified four people as suspects in the case. Interviews and searches were carried out but no evidence was found to implicate the four in the disappearance.
Mr Rowley said they are no longer the subject of further investigation and have been ruled out of the inquiry.
Meanwhile, police working on the case continue to receive information on a daily basis.
Mr Rowley said: 'Thousands of pieces of information have come forward, some useful, some not, but amongst that have been some nuggets that have thrown some extra light on the original material that came from the time.
'That's one of the things that's helped us make progress and have some critical lines of inquiry we want to pursue today.'
The assistant commissioner pledged that the investigation team will do all they can to provide an answer for Madeleine's parents.

He said: 'I so wish I could say we will definitely solve it but a small number of cases sadly don't get solved.
'What I've always said on this case, and I've said it to Kate and Gerry as well, we will do everything reasonably possible to try and find an answer.
'I just can't quite guarantee it. It always hurts that you can't guarantee success but we will do everything we reasonably can do to try and get there.'
Around 30 detectives were working on the UK probe, Operation Grange, when it was established in 2011. The team has now been scaled back to four detectives.
Last month the Home Office confirmed £85,000 was being given to the inquiry to cover operational costs from April to September. More than £11 million has been spent on the inquiry so far.
Mr Rowley insisted the investigation has 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.
'We've achieved a complete understanding of it all. We've sifted out many of the potential suspects, many of the people of interest and where we are today is with a much smaller team focused on a small number of remaining critical lines of inquiry that we think are significant.'
Asked about the cost of the investigation, he said: 'Big cases can take a lot of resources and a lot of time.
'We've tried to be careful about public money and as we've started with that massive sifting we've reduced the number of resources and the funding's reduced accordingly.
'But we will stick with it as long as the funding's available and as long as there are sensible lines of inquiry to pursue.'

Vital new clues in Maddie hunt: 10 years on police say investigation at ‘critical’ stage
A NEW “significant line of inquiry” could finally solve the 10-year mystery of Madeleine McCann’s disappearance. Scotland Yard and Portuguese police are engaged on a “critical piece of work” that “could provide an answer”, a senior officer revealed yesterday.
By John Twomey
PUBLISHED: 21:01, Tue, Apr 25, 2017 | UPDATED: 23:40, Tue, Apr 25, 2017

As the 10th anniversary of her abduction approaches, Yard Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley held out hope she is still alive. His words were welcomed by Madeleine’s doctor parents Kate and Gerry McCann, who have vowed never to give up the quest to find their daughter.
Madeleine was just three when she vanished from the family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on Portugal’s Algarve coast on May 3, 2007.
Mr Rowley is in overall command of Operation Grange, the £11million Yard hunt for her which was launched in 2011.
He said: “We have a significant line of inquiry which is worth pursuing and because it’s worth pursuing it could provide an answer.
“But until we’ve gone through it, I won’t know whether we are going to get there or not.”
The Yard chief declined to go into any details about the investigation.
He would only say: “Ourselves and the Portuguese are doing a critical piece of work.
“And we don’t want to spoil it by putting titbits of information out publicly.”
I know we have a significant line of inquiry which is worth pursuing, and because it's worth pursuing it could provide an answer
Mark Rowley - Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner
Operation Grange was set up in 2011 after the McCanns appealed directly to Theresa May, then home secretary.
Mr Rowley said: “We’ve got some critical lines of inquiry, those link to particular hypotheses.
“But I’m not going to discuss those because those are very much a live investigation.
“We’ve got some thoughts on what we think the most likely explanations might be and we are pursuing those.”
The theory that the little girl was snatched by a sexual predator has been “one key line of inquiry”, Mr Rowley said.
He added: “The reality is in the modern world in any urban area if you cast your net widely you will find a whole pattern of offences. You will find sex offenders who live nearby.
And those coincidences need to be sifted out – what’s a coincidence and what may be linked to the investigation.
“Offences which may be linked have to be looked at and either ruled in or ruled out.”
A burglary gone wrong is a “sensible hypothesis” that has not been entirely eliminated, Mr Rowley added.
No trace of Madeleine has been found but there is still no “definitive evidence” to know whether she is alive or dead.
Met Police AC Mark Rowley said there are 'significant avenues' that are of 'great interest'
Mr Rowley said: “That’s why we describe it as a missing person inquiry.
“We understand why, after many years, people will be pessimistic but it’s important we keep an open mind.”
At its height, 30 detectives were working on Operation Grange as they sifted through 40,000 documents and investigated 600 individuals.
In 2013, officers identified four people as possible suspects but they have now been ruled out. With a much reduced workload, the team has been cut to four detectives.
Mr Rowley said: “We’ve sifted out many of the potential suspects, many of the people of interest.
“And where we are today is with a much smaller team focused on a small number of remaining critical lines of inquiry that we think are significant.”
Information is still coming in on a daily basis.
He added: “Thousands of pieces of information have come forward, some useful, some not.
“But among that have been some nuggets that have thrown some extra light on the original material.”
In addition to the £11million spent on Operation Grange so far, an extra £85,000 has been given to the inquiry to cover operational costs from April to September this year.
Mr Rowley said: “Big cases can take a lot of resources and a lot of time.
“We’ve tried to be careful about public money and as we’ve started with that massive sifting we have reduced the number of resources.
“And so the funding has been reduced accordingly.”
He added: “We will stick with it as long as the funding is available and as long as there are sensible lines of inquiry.”
The McCanns, of Rothley, Leics, have been assured police will do everything to find out Madeleine’s fate.
But Mr Rowley said: “I so wish I could say we will definitely solve it but a small number of cases sadly don’t get solved.
“What I’ve always said on this case, and I’ve said it to Kate and Gerry as well, we will do everything reasonably possible to try to find an answer.
“I just can’t quite guarantee it. It always hurts that you can’t guarantee success but we will do everything we reasonably can do to try to get there.”

Madeleine McCann: Police rule out four suspects in investigation

Four people previously considered as possible suspects over the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have been ruled out, British police have said.
In 2013, investigators identified four potential suspects. Interviews and searches were carried out but no evidence was found to implicate them.
In an interview almost a decade on from Madeleine's disappearance, Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said they are no longer the subject of further investigation and have been ruled out of the inquiry.
Mr Rowley said detectives are pursuing "significant lines of inquiry" that are of "great interest" to both the UK and Portuguese teams.
He said officers have sifted through 40,000 documents and looked at over 600 individuals since 2011.
Madeleine vanished from the family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal on May 3 2007 when she was three years old.
Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, of Rothley, Leicestershire, have vowed to "never give up" the hope of finding their daughter.
Asked if police were any closer to solving the case than they were six years ago when the UK investigation was launched, Mr Rowley said: "I know we have a significant line of inquiry which is worth pursuing, and because it's worth pursuing it could provide an answer, but until we've gone through it I won't know whether we are going to get there or not.
"Ourselves and the Portuguese are doing a critical piece of work and we don't want to spoil it by putting tit bits of information out publicly."

Madeleine McCann: Police still pursuing 'critical' lead 10 years on
Police investigating Madeleine McCann's disappearance say a critical line of inquiry is still being pursued, 10 years after she went missing.
Met Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said they still hoped they could provide answers to what happened.
Three-year-old Madeleine disappeared from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal on 3 May, 2007.
Her mother Kate described the approaching 10th anniversary as a "horrible marker of time, stolen time".
Asked if police were any closer to solving the case than they were six years ago, Mr Rowley said: "I know we have a significant line of inquiry which is worth pursuing, and because it's worth pursuing it could provide an answer, but until we've gone through it I won't know whether we are going to get there or not."
What happened the night Madeleine went missing?
Police funds extended for six months
But he added that there was no "definitive evidence" as to whether Madeleine was alive or dead.
He declined to expand on the nature of the working theories or reveal whether any suspects were currently being considered but said the investigating team were still receiving evidence and new information from members of the public on a daily basis.
He said UK and Portuguese detectives were doing "a critical piece of work and we don't want to spoil it by putting titbits of information out publicly".
But he added that "there was no reason whatsoever" to suspect Madeleine's parents were involved in her disappearance.
"However she left that apartment, she's been abducted," he said. "This is a young girl who is missing."
He said: "We've got some thoughts on what we think the most likely explanations might be and we are pursuing those."
Four detectives are working on the case in the UK, scaled back from 30 in 2011, with more than £11m spent so far.
Scotland Yard started its review of the case in May 2011, after then-Prime Minister David Cameron responded to a plea from the McCanns.
Tom Symonds, BBC home affairs correspondent
The Madeleine McCann investigation, codenamed Operation Grange within the Metropolitan Police, has always suffered from the inadequacies of the original Portuguese investigation.
Just one was the fact that mobile phone call records from Praia Da Luz that night were collected, but not interrogated for clues.
At least they were collected, says the Met, which has now caught up with the huge task of examining them. But who knows what opportunities have been missed?
Detectives on the case have developed hypotheses about Madeline's disappearance and it is clear they are still trying to confirm at least one of them - a "significant", "critical" line of inquiry.
Even if this bears fruit, it may not answer that chilling, decade-old question: Where is Madeleine McCann?
And Operation Grange, with its unusual government funding, can't go on for ever. No more leads can only mean no more money - and the end.
Ahead of the 10th anniversary Kate McCann wrote in a message on the Official Find Madeleine Campaign Facebook page: "Ten years - there's no easy way to say it, describe it, accept it.
"I remember when Madeleine first disappeared I couldn't even begin to consider anything in terms of years...
"And now here we are... Madeleine, our Madeleine - ten years."
She said she and husband Gerry were "bracing ourselves for the next couple of weeks" of coverage.
With "no new appeals that the police wish to make at this moment in time" she said the family, from Rothley, Leicestershire, was "keeping any media involvement marking this unwanted milestone to a minimum".
Officers have sifted through some 40,000 documents and looked at more than 600 individuals since the UK investigation was launched.
The Home office asked the Met to review the case and all the material gathered since 2007.
In March, the Home Office confirmed £85,000 was being given to the inquiry to fund the next six months.
Mr Rowley said four people considered as possible suspects in 2013 have been ruled out. Interviews took place at a police station in Faro, Portugal, and a large area of wasteland close to the Praia da Luz apartment was searched.
He said the enormity and complexity of the case had brought challenges. But the relationship with Portuguese investigators was "better than ever" and that was paying dividends in the progress made.
He said: "In a missing child inquiry every day is agony and an anniversary brings this into sharp focus.
"Our thoughts are with Madeleine's family at this time - as it is with any family in a missing person's inquiry - and that drives our commitment to do everything we can for her."

Madeleine McCann: Met Police rules out its four official suspects
Jose Carlos da Silva and three others were investigated for six months before being told they would face no further action.
By Martin Brunt, Crime Correspondent

The only four official suspects investigated by the Met Police over the abduction of Madeleine McCann have been ruled out of the inquiry.
But Scotland Yard insists it is still investigating one significant lead.
Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley told Sky News: "We have one significant line of inquiry which is worth pursuing and because it's worth pursuing it could provide an answer."
The suspects were believed by Scotland Yard to have taken her during a burglary gone wrong at the McCanns' rented holiday apartment in Portugal.
They were identified by their mobile phone use, their location near the apartment on the night and their backgrounds.
One is Jose Carlos da Silva, 35, a former driver at the Ocean Club complex in Praia da Luz, where Madeleine vanished on 3 May, 2007.
He and the others were questioned and investigated for six months before being told they would face no further action.
Mr Rowley said: "Somebody's doing a burglary, panicked maybe by a waking child and that's what's leads to Madeleine going missing."
Asked if that was an unlikely scenario and if any surprised burglar would simply run away, Mr Rowley said: "In my experience, if you try to apply the cold, rational logic of a normal person sitting in their front room to what criminals do under pressure, you tend to make mistakes.
"It was a sensible hypothesis and it's not entirely ruled out."
Madeleine disappeared as she slept in a room with her younger twin siblings while their parents Kate and Gerry McCann, both doctors, dined with friends nearby.
Scotland Yard began investigating six years ago after the failure of the first Portuguese police investigation. The team of detectives, cut in 2015 from 29 to four, has spent more than £11m of UK Government funds.
Mr Rowley said new information was still being received daily.
The Metropolitan Police was recently given an extra £85,000 by the Home Office to keep the investigation going until September.
Portugal's deputy national director of the Policia Judiciaria, Pedro do Carmo, told Sky News that he was under no financial or political pressure to wind up his re-opened investigation.
He said: "If the Metropolitan Police decides to close its investigation that doesn't mean we are going to close ours.
"Our two investigations are not dependent on one another."

It sure does. He says the parents were ruled out early in the Portuguese investigation, whereas the recent decision by the Portuguese Supreme Court made it quite clear that the McCanns had not been cleared of involvement.

In the USA, Martin Grime gave evidence in the trial of D'Andre Lane for the murder of his daughter. No body was found, but Martin's evidence that his dog had alerted in the child's bedroom and in Lane's car was accepted in court. Lane was found guilty.

I can hardly believe the rubbish this British police officer is coming out with.

If this significant new lead does in fact solve the case and either finds her in the care of a rich couple showering her with every conceivable possession or finds the remains of a body, does this mean that the tapas lot including the Mccanns will be hoiked into a police station ( preferably not Leicestershire) and made to explain their behaviour in the hours after the "abduction" and the following days, the remarks made by Gerry ( confusion is good, marking the one year anniversary etc etc etc et c etc etc........) why K felt she couldn't answer the 48 questions and all the other imponderables in this case. There are so many contradictions it is unbelievable. They all need to be addressed and addressed properly by someone who knows what they are doing.

As an aside, the Daily Quail today is quoting K as " never returned to work but devotes herself as a full time mum to the twins" and G as " an internationally renowned heart surgeon".

It's all a distraction from the truth. The McCanns have not been cleared by the Portuguese Supreme Court. Wasn't their initial plea for funds known as the Fighting Fund? That's what the McCanns have been doing since day one - fighting to suppress the truth about Madeleine's death and eventual "disappearance".

It is a lot of garbage. There is nothing more to say about it. Shameful. Macabre.

I see where Clarence Mitchell has given an interview to the Telegraph. He says he first met Gerry McCann when he returned to the UK from Portugal the first time. That was an eventful trip for Gerry - he came to the rescue of a fellow passenger, lost his wallet at Waterloo station as the result of a pickpocket, met Clarence and did that flip chart presentation on the further agenda (which we could call the hidden agenda).

Why did U.K. authorities tell Mitchell the McCanns were not guilty before they were even named arguidos? He also failed to mention that at the time he met Gerry he was employed by the Government 'media controlling unit'.

I fully expected there would be a great deal of press attention leading up to the tenth anniversary but nothing like I've been reading lately - so over the top and so disrespectful to Madeleine's memory - and the Sunday papers are yet to be seen.

Have just seen the Sunday front pages - the coverage is revolting from the repugnant press.

The DM - her brave smile says she will never give up hope. Kate's "smile" looks more like ridicule to me.

The Express - "Prime Suspect is a Woman" - no kidding - was she wearing checkered pants that smelled of cadaver? You'll find her in Rothley flogging good quality wristbands.

Madeleine McCann's parents are trying to protect their twins, 12, from online abuse

The parents of Madeleine McCann have spoken of the hurt caused by fake news and how they are now trying to protect their 12-year-old twins from online abuse.
In a moving interview to mark the tenth anniversary of the disappearance, Kate and Gerry McCann also tell of a new normality of adjusting to life after so long without their eldest child.
The McCanns also disclose they are taking their legal battle with the former Portuguese detective Goncalo Amaral to the European courts after a judgment that ruled in his favour.
Madeleine was three when she vanished from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in the Algarve on May 3, 2007.
In their interview with the BBC's Fiona Bruce, Mrs McCann said they would do "whatever it takes for as long as it takes" to find their daughter.
Of the anniversary, she said: "I never thought we'd still be in this situation, so far along the line. It's a huge amount of time. In some ways it feels like it was only a few weeks ago, in other times it has felt really long. But it's a hard marker of time. It's time we should have had with Madeleine. We should have been a family of five for all that time. It just feels stolen."
Asked about the postings on the internet, Mrs McCann said they did their best to avoid social media.
But she said she was anxious for their children Sean and Amelie, who were two at the time, but are now beginning to use social media themselves.
"Our worry is for our children," said Mrs McCann, 49, a former GP, who disclosed she has started working again in medicine but not as a general practitioner.
"I think we've tried to educate them a little bit as well because obviously it's not just us that has fallen victim to the downside of social media."
Of the postings, she said: "I think it has been shocking... that aspect of human nature that I hadn't really encountered before. It's been striking and quite hard really to get your head round. Because why would somebody write that? Why would somebody add to someone's upset, why would someone in a position of ignorance do something like that?"
Mr McCann, 48, a cardiologist, added: "I don't want to dwell on the negative aspects too long, but I think in this era of fake news, it is extremely topical and I think people just need to think twice before what they write and the effects it has.
"Certainly I know ourselves with our own experience, both in the mainstream media and also on the internet, we just say I am not going to believe that until I see evidence of it.
"I'm sure it is a very small minority of people who spend their time doing it, but it has totally inhibited what we do. Personally, we don't use social media, although we have used it in Madeleine's campaign. But for our twins who are growing up in an era where mobile technology is used all the time, we don't want them not to be able to use it in the same way that their peers do."
The couple, from Rothley in Leicestershire, lamented that they had only been able to enjoy their "little perfect nuclear family of five" for such a short period of time.
Mr McCann, acknowledging the passing of time, said: "You adapt and you have a new normality. And unfortunately for us a new normality is a family of four.
"The last five years in particular has allowed us to really properly devote time to looking after the twins and ourselves and of course carrying on with our work.
"At some point you've got to realise that time is not frozen and I think both of us realise that we owed it to the twins to make sure that their life is as fulfilling as they deserve, and we have certainly tried our best to achieve that."
The couple's misery was compounded by finding themselves accused by the Portuguese police of being implicated in the disappearance.
Although they have been formally cleared by both Portuguese and British police for almost a decade, they remain locked in a legal battle with Amaral, who was sacked from the case but wrote a book about it.
The McCanns successfully sued Amaral for libel but the ex-detective won the latest round of the bitter dispute in the Portuguese supreme court.
Mr McCann said they would take the case to Europe because "the last judgment is terrible", adding: "We've got to challenge it, and we will do."
Mrs McCann said: "I find it all incomprehensible to be honest. It has been very upsetting, and it has caused a lot of frustration and anger which is a real negative emotion.
"I just have to hope that in the long run that justice will prevail."
