Madeleine McCann Biography

Madeleine Beth McCann is a British girl who vanished from her holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on the evening of May 3, 2007.

“The most heavily reported missing-person case in contemporary history,” according to the Daily Telegraph.

Although German prosecutors believe she is dead, Madeleine’s whereabouts are unknown.

Madeleine McCann was born in Leicester and raised in Rothley, Leicestershire, with her family. Shortly after her disappearance, she was made a ward of court in England at her parents’ request.

Madeleine, her parents Kate and Gerry McCann, her two-year-old twin siblings, and a group of family friends and their children were on vacation from the United Kingdom.

She and the twins were left in the ground-floor apartment at 20:30, while the McCanns and their guests dined in a restaurant 55 meters away (180 feet).

The parents kept an eye on the kids all night until Kate noticed Madeleine was missing around 22:00.

The Portuguese authorities began to suspect that Madeleine had died in an apartment accident and that her parents had covered it up during the following weeks, particularly after misinterpreting a British DNA study.

In September 2007, the McCanns were designated as arguidos (suspects), but that designation was revoked when the case was archived in July 2008 due to a lack of evidence by Portugal’s attorney general.

Madeleine’s parents used private detectives to continue the search until Scotland Yard launched Operation Grange, its own investigation, in 2011.
