Madeline McCann was only four years old when she went missing during a family vacation in Portugal. AMW profiled the case a few times and John Walsh even met Madeline's parents. Tonight on CNN, Walsh was interviewed on Erin Burnett up-front. There are new suspects in the case:

I checked the transcript out and Walsh said that law enforcement didn't interview half the pedophiles and pornographers that lived in that area at the beginning. There are several theories regarding this case and all of them make sense to at least some degree; child molester; failed ransom attempt; child or organ trafficking. Of course with a well publicized case like this, you then have conspiracy theories that are almost so uncredible it's not funny. I admit I'm not an expert on this case (I tried to avoid paying attention to it during the media blitz of 2007), so this is the best I can provide in regards to this one.
Update: A sketch has been released on a man wanted for questioning in the abduction of Madeline McCann. The new leads and updates on the case will be aired on "Crimewatch", the United Kingdom's America's Most Wanted-esque tv show. He's described as German, between the age of 20 and 40, and with brown hair
There's a new unnamed suspect in this case, an ex-employee of the resort Madeleine was abducted from according to Portuguese authorities. The man was fired before Madeleine disappeared and died in a tractor accident four years ago. He may have kidnapped Madeleine as a form of revenge against the hotel resort. Telephone records showed he was in the vicinity of the hotel apartment at the time Madeleine went missing.
Portgual's suspect in the Madeline McCann disappearance has been named as Euclides Monteiro. If he is responsible then all those human trafficking rumors and theories don't apply to this case. I should mention that Monteiro has not been officially named the kidnapper of Madeline McCann but we'll see what happens.
More on Euclides Monteiro. About the German-looking man wanted for questioning there's nothing saying he was actually the abductor. Due to the media frenzy over this case, some of the leads such as the German-looking man supposedly carrying a child near the abduction site may not be that accurate. There have been so many "theories" and reported "sightings" about this case that it's hard to determine what is credible and what is not.
Some have also questioned whether Monteiro is a scapegoat because he's dead and can't speak for himself. As I mentioned earlier let's watch what develops regarding this case and judge this for ourselves.
