Maddie cops to quiz two new suspects,Kate and Gerry McCann as detectives return to Portugal
DETECTIVES searching for missing Madeleine McCann will return to Portugal this week to quiz two new suspects in the hope for a breakthrough in the case.
Cops are expected to interrogate the pair in Faro this week as police spend three days in the Algarve, the Sunday Express reports.
Nine other witnesses are also thought to be in line for questioning.
The news comes just days after Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood announced he would be stepping down as head of the operation.
Det. Redwood had been in charge of Operation Grange since 2011 but will soon be replaced Detective Chief Inspector Nicola Wall.
DCI Wall, who will begin her role on December 22, will join officers in Portugal this week as part of the investigation.
Forensic teams dug up land close to the hotel yet found no clues related to the case.
Following her disappearance in 2007, the original case to find Maddie was dropped by Portuguese police in 2008.
But the case was reopened by the Met three years later.
It emerged today that £8million of taxpayers money has been spent on the new Scotland Yard probe into her disappearance.
It is believe that with further inquiries could take this budget over the £10m mark.
