The search for Maddie McCann at the Arade Dam in Algarve is expected to conclude this Thursday, although the results of the investigations have so far been inconclusive. There are no plans to extend the operations, despite the delay caused by adverse weather conditions on Tuesday.
Several inspectors and experts have been deployed to the dam for the searches this week. The operation also involves tracking dogs, sensors, drones, and a boat.
On Wednesday, a small machine was used to clear the terrain and facilitate the collection of soil samples.
The Judiciary Police is expected to communicate the results of this operation in a press conference upon the completion of the search.
The operation was requested by the German police, who suspect Christian Bruckner’s involvement in the disappearance of the British child in 2007. He was made a suspect back in April of 2022.
However, the operation is also being followed by the Metropolitan Police of London.
Mark Cranwell, Chief Inspector from the United Kingdom, is on-site to inform the McCann family of any developments.
The searches are going on in the Arade Dam, located 50 kilometers from Praia da Luz where Madeleine McCann disappeared at 3 years old in 2007.
