Hunt for Madeleine McCann needs more cash

7 posts in this topic

Scotland Yard is to ask for more money to continue its six-year investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Detectives are struggling to resolve a final lead, which, if it fizzled out, could have brought the £11m Government-funded investigation to an end next month.

I understand that the Home Office is willing to carry on paying for the last bit of work to be completed.

Enough already.  It is very sad that this little girl disappeared, but there are so many more children who could be helped with the outrageous amounts spent to find Madeleine.

I couldn't agree more!

If the McCanns can raise funds themselves, via an online appeal, that's great, but don't waste more public resources on one missing child out of thousands.

Detectives have been given an extra £154,000 to continue the decade-long search for Madeleine McCann as they are hunting a 'person of significance'. 

The Home Office confirmed it will fund work to chase up a 'critical' lead in Scotland Yard's inquiry.

The figure brings the total spent in 2017-18 on Operation Grange to £309,000 and the overall cost to around £11.5million.

Senior detectives expect the investigation into her disappearance will now continue until at least March.
