RadarOnline.com can reveal that police are reportedly zeroing in on a new suspect in the nearly-decade-old disappearance of British toddler Madeleine McCann.
According to Express, Portuguese police are hunting for "a specific person of interest they need to question."
As Radar reported, McCann was on vacation with her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, when she was taken from her bed the evening of May 3, 2007, at Praia da Luz's exclusive Algarve resort while her parents, who had left her alone as she slept, dined at a nearby restaurant.
The distraught parents were often frustrated over suspicion their daughter had died while in their suite and the two had covered it up.
However, a man was reported spotted carrying a child dressed in pajamas near the beach around the same time McCann vanished.
Now, on the eve of the ten-year anniversary of McCann's suspected kidnapping, officials have breathed new life into their search for the little girl thanks to a fresh infusion of over $100,000.
The person of interest police now seek was determined to have been in the area at the time of McCann's disappearance.
The revelation comes at a crucial time in the investigation, since detectives were set to conclude their search for the little girl, who would have turned 14 on May 12.
Senior officials are now hoping for the best but confess the latest line of inquiry is likely the "last throw of the dice" in the frustrating case.
Whether the new lead turns up fresh information or not, McCann's mother has insisted she would "never give up" searching for her daughter and believes she's still alive.
"The urge to look for Madeleine absolutely hasn't changed at all," she confessed in 2016. "I want an end, an answer. Whatever that it is."
