first_imgDetectives could solve Madeleine McCann’s disappearance by using phone data in the biggest hunt for witnesses so far.Madeleine in Donegal, pictured second from left in April 2007. She disappeared in Portugal two weeks later.A new probe by Scotland Yard has thrown up the names of 41 potential suspects – three more than they knew about before.Fifteen of those suspects are believed to be from Britain. Anyone present in the Algarve town on or around May 3, 2007, could receive a call from the Met, either because their phone was active, or they were with someone who had their phone switched on.They are painstakingly tracing thousands of mobile numbers belonging to people from 31 countries in Praia da Luz, on the night the three-year-old vanished.Cops are sifting through tens of thousands of numbers being used in the area at the time to pinpoint potential suspects.The news comes as detectives revealed they have a new theory about what happened to Madeleine and will reveal it on a BBC Crimewatch show this month. Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, said: “It’s not just a bland appeal, there is some different material and a different understanding to be presented.”Parents Kate and Gerry McCann will appear in the studio during the special episode which will feature a reconstruction and pre-recorded interviews with them.Similar programmes are due to be shown in Holland, Germany and Ireland.COPS HOPE PHONE RECORDS WILL HELP PINPOINT MADELEINE’S ABDUCTOR was last modified: October 4th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:disappearedhuntMaddie McCannphone recordslast_img read more
