CNN is reporting a stunning development in the case of missing child that drew worldwide attention in 2007.
Madeleine McCann was 3 years old when she disappeared while on vacation with her family in Portugal, 6 years ago.
Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann have since campaigned tirelessly to keep her in the public's memory, while raising Madeleine's two siblings.
Now British police say they have new leads and they believe Madeleine may be alive.
Atika Shubert is following the story.
British police are reopening the investigation, called Operation Grange. “They want to question 38 people across Europe, including 12 British nationals who they believe were in Portugal at the time,” Shubert reports.
"There is no clear definitive proof that Madeleine McCann is dead,” says DCI Andy Redwood of the Metropolitan Police. “So, on that basis, I still genuinely believe that there is a possibility that she’s alive."
