Madeleine McCann: Government gives police £154,000 to extend search for missing toddler


Investigation will continue until March 2018 - 11 years since child vanished

The Home Office has handed the Metropolitan Police £154,000 to extend the search for missing toddler Madeleine McCann.

Scotland Yard had requested extra cash to continue its investigation into the three-year-old's disappearance in 2007.

The force had said it was investigating "significant" leads, which Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley described as "very worthwhile".

A Home Office spokesman said: "Following an application from the Metropolitan Police, the Home Office has confirmed funding for Operation Grange until the end of March 2018.

"As with all applications, the resources required are reviewed regularly and careful consideration is given before any funding is allocated.”

The Met had previously suggested it would ask for further funds to investigate one final line of enquiry in the £11m Operation Grange.

Funding had previously only been guaranteed for the investigation to last until the end of September.

In August the Home Office said it would consider providing additional funding for the investigation, but at that point had not recieved a request from the Met.

The level of funding provided is a reflection of the wide-ranging and complex nature of the investigation which the police have deemed necessary to undertake," a spokesperson said.

Three-year-old Madeleine vanished from the family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal on 3 May, 2007.

Her disappearance sparked one of the most high-profile, and expensive, police investigations of recent times.

Scotland Yard's investigation has been active since 2011, but the number of detectives working on the case was cut from 29 to four in 2015.

In addition to the already 11million spent, an additional 154,000 allocated for a further six month period. Unbelievable that the police are not allowed/permitted to investigate the parents and their tapas friends; the very last people to see Madeleine alive. Bring them all in and demand Kate answer the 48 questions she refused to answer ten years ago.

Thanks cherry.

Has consecutive HMG administrations now finally set the benchmark for funding support offered to parents search for missing children? A little late for many children and distraught parents who previously received nothing like the approximately £12 million from HMG plus a reported £5 million of public donations.

God forbid any other children should vanish whilst holidaying with their freeby appreciating parents and friends. This terrible outcome, despite the frequent half hourly checks by the parents and or their buddies, who dined just, 'a few yards' from where their 18 month old twins were being babysat by their not quite 4 year old daughter who vanished under very mysterious circumstances.

I wonder just what the personal opinions of individuals within HMG and child protection charities feel about such payouts without any blame whatsoever being associated to those who should were responsible for the child's safety.
