The Case of Madeleine McCann

Portuguese officials have ended their investigation into the disappearance of the British girl. Her parents are no longer suspects.

A Portuguese police file containing almost 30,000 pages of evidence from the investigation into the disappearance of British girl Madeleine McCann was made public. The case will remain closed unless new evidence emerges.

Madeleine McCann vanished May 3, 2007, a few days before her fourth birthday, from a hotel room during a family vacation in Praia da Luz, a coastal Algarve town.The McCanns have waged a far-reaching international campaign to find their daughter.

Madeleine McCann
Timeline as we know it

Madeleine McCann ('Maddie') disappeared in the evening of Thursday, 3 May 2007 in the Portugese resort of Praia da Luz in the Algarve.

5:30 pm- The two-year-old twins Sean and Amelie and their sister, three-year-old Madeleine (Beth) McCann, have been picked up from their kids club.

6:00 pm- Gerry McCann has his third tennis lesson of the day.

6:30 pm- Gerry McCann asks David Payne, a close friend of the McCann's, to check up on Kate and the children.

Mr. Payne tells Gerry McCann the children are too tired to go outside again and are already in their pyjamas.

7:00 pm- The tennis lesson is over.

7:30 pm- The childeren are read a bedtime story by Gerry McCann and then fall asleep.

8:30 pm- Gerry and Kate McCann leave for the Tapas Restaurant. The rest of their friends (now known as the Tapas 7) arrive a few minutes later. The group include Russell O'Brien and his partner Jane Tanner, Rachael and Matthew Oldfield, Fiona and David Payne and Mrs Payne's mother Dianne Webster.

9:05 pm- A few minutes past 9 o'clock Gerry McCann checks on the children. He spents a minute watching them sleep.

9:10 pm-  When he returns to the Tapas Restaurant he accidentally bumps into a friend, Jeremy Wilkins. Gerry McCann crosses the road because he wants to talk to Mr. Wilkins.

9:15 pm- Jane Tanner also wants to check on her own children. She passes Gerry who is still talking to Mr. Wilkins. At the top of the road she sees a man walking, and she is sure that this man is carrying a child (she believes it is a girl). Although she thinks it's odd, she doesn't pay much attention to it.

9:30 pm- Matt Oldfield is the next person to check on his own, and the McCann children. He does see the twins and they are sleeping sleep peacefully. He assumes Madeleine is alright too. He leaves the apartment moments later.

10:00 pm- Kate McCann is the one who discovers that Madeleine is missing. She searches the apartment three times, but does not find the then 3-year-old little girl.

10:15 pm- Matt Oldfield eventually calls the police from the Ocean Club front desk. The police does not show up.
