    The latest, looks like investigators are in Portugal. Praying for closure regardless of my feelings. This little girl deserves justice.

    According to this article the cooperation from Portuguese authorities is still questionable because of differences they have had. Again it leaves room for speculation. What are the differences? What are the Portuguese investigating?

    I hope they have more than phone records. If not, I don't see how any arrests can be made without other evidence. After 7 years, what could they possibly have?

    Are the Portuguese and the British on the same page?

    The Portuguese reopened their case because of new leads but wouldn't give the details. This was back in October.

    The BBC is reporting it

    Madeleine McCann: British detectives fly to Portugal


    British detectives are holding discussions with local officers


    British detectives investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have flown to Portugal and spoken to local officers, Scotland Yard has said.

    Madeleine was three when she disappeared in 2007 from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Algarve.

    Portuguese police said the detectives were in Faro on Tuesday.

    Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, senior investigating officer in the case, is understood to be one of those who travelled to Portugal.


    Madeleine was aged three when she went missing in May 2007


    Last week, Portugal's attorney general's office acknowledged they had formally received a letter of request from the British authorities for assistance in their enquiries.

    It was reported that the request concerned assistance to arrest three suspects who were carrying out burglaries at the Ocean Club complex in Praia de Luz, in the Algarve, where the McCanns were staying.


    The BBC's Nick Beake: ''There are reports that the British police are particularly keen to talk to three burglars who were in the area''

    In the 17 days before she disappeared, there were two incidents in the McCanns' block, one burglary and one attempted burglary.

    Police have said the possibility that Madeleine had been snatched by burglars as part of a bungled break-in was a key line of inquiry.

    Between January and May 2007, when Madeleine went missing, there was a four-fold increase in the number of burglaries in the area.

    Scotland Yard launched a new investigation into Madeleine's disappearance last July, two years into a review of the case, and made renewed appeals for information.

    The detectives met their Portuguese counterparts at the Faro Judiciary. Scotland Yard confirmed a team of officers had been in Faro as one of a number of regular trips they have made in connection with the inquiry.

    No questioning of burglars? No arrests?

    I just have a gut feeling these trips have nothing to do with burglars. Something more is going on. If only I was a fly on the wall when these meetings took place.

    A quote from PJ officer

    But Pedro do Carmo, the deputy head of Portugal's criminal police department, told AFP: "There were no arrests."
    ..
    ..

    "A working meeting took place on Tuesday in Faro, in the regular fashion, as has happened before in the framework of the investigation," Carmo said.
    He would not comment on the content of the meeting but said the detectives had now left Portugal.
