We can confirm that police searching a lake for Madeleine McCann’s body anticipate coming up empty.
According to German detectives, there is “no compelling evidence” that she is present.
During the three-day search of the Arade Dam reservoir last month, sniffer dogs and radar were employed.
The main suspect, 45-year-old German citizen Christian B, called the isolated Algarve location his “little paradise.”
The distance from Praia da Luz, where Maddie was kidnapped in 2007 from a vacation rental while her parents Kate and Gerry were away, is about 30 kilometers.
According to sources, the police in the area were tipped off that B had visited the location a few days after Maddie vanished.
Police drilled 2 foot deep bore holes in the reservoir in an effort to find Madeleine-related fibers or clothing, according to speculation.
According to a Portuguese publication, “relevant information” was discovered, and soil samples, plastic fragments, and clothing remnants were removed for study.
However, detectives are likely to claim that they lack the necessary evidence to convict B, according to German newspaper Bild.
Hans Christian Wolters, a German public prosecutor, warned, “Please don’t expect too much.”
B is currently imprisoned in Germany for the 2005 rape of a 72-year-old lady in Praia da Luz.
Further rapes and child abuse are allegedly committed by him.
