Police: How Madeleine McCann Would Look Now



Police issued the new artist's impression of Madeleine McCann
11:22am UK, Wednesday April 25, 2012

Police have issued an artist's impression of what missing Madeleine McCann may look like now.
The Metropolitan Police issued the computer-generated likeness of Madeleine as a nine-year-old, as the fifth anniversary of her disappearance in Portugal approaches.

The picture was created by Teri Blythe, who is a specialist in forensic art services for both missing persons and unidentified cases.

Madeleine disappeared in May 2007 during a family holiday and successive searches have failed to find her.

The image was released as Scotland Yard detectives announced that as a result of evidence uncovered during a review they now believe there is a possibility Madeleine is still alive.

Police have appealed for anyone who is able to provide direct information as to her whereabouts to contact the team.

The investigative review commenced in May 2011 under the leadership of the then commissioner, Sir Paul Stephenson.

A murder team within the Homicide and Serious Crime Command was tasked to conduct the review and the team worked in close collaboration with a senior investigating officer from Portugal's Policia Judaria.

British detectives also travelled to Portugal several times as part of the investigation.

"Throughout the course of the review officers have been in close contact with the McCann family who have been assigned a family liaison officer as is standard in accordance with national family liaison policy," Scotland Yard said in a statement.

"Officers are now methodically going through that material which they believe amounts to around 40,000 pieces of information equating to approximately 100,000 pages.

"The intention is to identify from that material investigative opportunities which we will then present to the Portuguese authorities who retain primacy for the investigation.

"Officers have so far identified around 195 such opportunities within the historic material, and are also developing what they believe to be genuinely new material."

Meanwhile, the police commissioned the computer-generated likeness of Madeleine as a nine-year-old, as the fifth anniversary of her disappearance approaches.

The picture was created by Teri Blythe, who is a specialist in forensic art services for both missing persons and unidentified cases.

Police added: "The second point of appeal today is in relation to those who were at the resort of Praia da Luz between 28 April and 3 May 2007.

If you were either on holiday or in residence in the resort during this period, particularly in the vicinity of the Ocean Club, and you have not been spoken to by police either here or in Portugal then please call us on 0800 096 1011 if you are within the UK."

Detectives release age progression pic of Madeleine McCann

Detectives believe there is a possibility that Madeleine McCann is still alive.


Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Service conducting the investigative review into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann are releasing an age progression image of her as we approach her ninth birthday on 12 May.

The image has been created in close collaboration with the family and is being released ahead of the fifth anniversary of her disappearance on 3 May. It shows how we believe Madeleine would look today

The release comes as detectives announce that as a result of evidence uncovered during the review they now believe there is a possibility Madeleine is still alive and are appealing for anyone who is able to provide direct information as to her whereabouts to contact the team.

The investigative review commenced in May 2011 under the leadership of the then commissioner, Sir Paul Stephens. A murder team within the Homicide and Serious Crime Command was tasked to conduct the review and is led by Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood acting to Detective Chief Superintendent Hamish Campbell and Commander Simon Foy.

Work of the team involves close collaboration with a senior investigating officer from the Policia Judaria and detectives have been to Portugal several times.

Throughout the course of the review officers have been in close contact with the McCann family who have been assigned a Family Liaison Officer as is standard in accordance with national family liaison policy.

The review team are in a unique position in that their task is to compile and review material from three separate strands - the Portuguese investigation, inquiries by UK law enforcement agencies, and the work of private investigators/agencies.

Officers are now methodically going through that material which they believe amounts to around 40,000 pieces of information equating to approximately 100,000 pages.

The intention is to identify from that material investigative opportunities which we will then present to the Portuguese authorities who retain primacy for the investigation. Officers have so far identified around 195 such opportunities within the historic material, and are also developing what they believe to be genuinely new material.

The objective of the review team is to work with the Portuguese authorities with a view to having the case, which has remained closed since 2008, re-opened in due course.

DCI Andy Redwood said: “From the outset we have approached this review with a completely open mind, placing Madeleine McCann at the heart of everything we do. We are working on the basis of two possibilities here. One is that Madeleine is still alive; and the second that she is sadly dead.

“Based on the former we are releasing the age progression image today with a specific appeal.

“If you know where Madeleine McCann is now or you have new direct information/evidence about what has happened to her then please contact us.

“The second point of appeal today is in relation to those who were at the resort of Praia da Luz between 28 April and 3 May 2007. If you were either on holiday or in residence in the resort during this period, particularly in the vicinity of the Ocean Club, and you have not been spoken to by police either here or in Portugal then please call us on 0800 0961011 if you are within the UK. The number for non-UK residents is +44 2071580 126. Alternatively if you do not want to speak to us directly you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
