10 years after the disappearance of Madeline McCan, a woman has been revealed as the prime suspect of the case.
The woman in question was allegedly spotted close to the place the three-year-old toddler went missing in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz on May 3, 2007, The Sun reports.
A source close to the London Metropolitan Police Service told the Sunday Express detectives are due to question the woman about her whereabouts on the night of Madeleine’s disappearance.
"Detectives have scoured Europe looking for this woman who is thought to hold the key to solving the entire case," they revealed.
"After months of tireless police work they will soon be in a position to move in and finally get some answers after a decade of dead-ends."
"It is a hugely significant line of inquiry that officers hope could lead to an arrest."
In a recent BBC TV interview to mark the 10th anniversary of their daughter's disappearance, Kate and Gerry McCann said they still believe Madeline can be found alive.
