INTERPOL updates global alert for Madeleine McCann

Change reflects age progression of missing British child


LYON, France – INTERPOL has issued an updated global alert in relation to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann from a holiday resort in Portugal on 3 May 2007, to include an age-progressed image showing how she may look today.

Detectives from London’s Metropolitan Police Service conducting an investigative review into the disappearance of the then three-year-old Madeleine McCann released the age-progressed image of the missing girl ahead of her ninth birthday on 12 May 2012.

An INTERPOL Yellow Notice for Madeleine McCann was circulated to INTERPOL’s member countries after she went missing from an apartment in Praia da Luz in the western Algarve.

The Notice was issued at the request of Portuguese authorities leading the investigation into Madeleine McCann’s disappearance. All of INTERPOL’s 190 member countries have received the update and the age-progressed image to assist in her identification.

INTERPOL Yellow Notices are circulated to help locate missing persons, especially minors, or to help identify persons who are not able to identify themselves.

Anyone who has any information regarding this case is asked to contact their local police or the authorities in Portugal.
