Madeleine McCann: Portuguese police wrap up reservoir search
Guardian, 26 May 2023
After three days of excavation around a reservoir in south Portugal, Portuguese police have wrapped up the first major search for Madeleine McCann in a decade.
Material unearthed from the Barragem do Arade reservoir in Algarve will be sent to Germany for analysis as German authorities, who requested the search, seek to prove the case that Christian Brückner, 45, a convicted rapist, killed Madeleine.
McCann was three years old when she went missing from her parents’ holiday apartment in the Portuguese town of Praia da Luz in 2007
