Madeleine McCann

How Police Responded In The Hours After Madeleine McCann’s Disappearance

Who was the man spotted nearby, the night Maddie disappeared? Did cadaver dogs really find evidence in a rental car? Why did Madeleine’s parents leave their kids home alone? How did the media reports change over time?
