According to the family of Madeleine McCann, there is a huge possibility that the missing child has been sighted in India. According to local police, there has been an investigation following a report that a British woman has seen a six year old girl last Friday that matches the description of Madeleine in a marketplace in Leh City, in Northern India.
According to a report released by the Chandigarh Tribune newspaper, the girl was accompanied by a Belgian man and a French woman. Apparently, they were saying that they are the biological parents of the girl. The police took their passports for further investigation.
Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann hired private detectives but it seems that travelling to India is not in their recent agenda. However, these private investigators are already coordinating with the local police as they continue to look for Madeleine.
A statement from the McCann family through their spokesman Clarence Mitchell states that, â€œThe private investigators currently searching for Madeleine have been aware of this report from India for several days, and have been working to establish its veracity.â€
While her parents were dining with friends nearby, Madeleine was left in the family’s holiday flat in Praia da Luz in the Algarve on May 3, 2007. She has gone missing since then.
