No reason to reopen missing girl inquiry - Portugal

5:38 am on 28 April 2012

Police in Portugual say they have no new evidence that would give them cause to reopen an inquiry into the disappearance in 2007 of the British child Madeleine McCann.

On Wednesday, Scottish police reviewing her disappearance said they had identified 195 investigative opportunities that could be followed up.

Madeleine's parents, Gerry and Kate McCann, have never abandoned their campaign to find their eldest daughter, who disappeared while they were at dinner on the south coast of Portugal on 3 May, 2007.

Her ninth birthday on 12 May is approaching.
