Madeleine McCann inquiry  


The inquiry into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann is reportedly set to end after 11 years. Operation Grange has been working to establish what happened to Madeleine after she went missing while on holiday with her family in Portugal.

But funding is reportedly due to end later this year. A source told The Sun newspaper : “There are currently no plans to take the inquiry any further. The end of the road for Operation Grange is now in sight. The team’s work is expected to be completed by autumn.”

Madeleine, from Rothley, in Leicestershire, vanished from her family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal on May 3, 2007. She was three years old at the time and would now be almost 19. 

She vanished while sleeping with her twin brother and sister in a bedroom as her parents dined with friends nearby. It is understood Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry McCann are aware of the inquiry’s impending closure.

Madeleine’s parents have vowed never to stop their hunt to find her. They have a fund set up to help establish what happened to their daughter.
