Tenerife ‘Maddie sighting’

DETECTIVES are probing a “sighting” of Madeleine McCann in Tenerife.

Tourist Margaret Jones believes she saw the missing four-year-old at the Spanish island’s airport.

She contacted Metodo 3 — the detectives hired by the McCanns — after returning home to Cardiff.

The media worker, in her 60s, said: “I was sitting opposite a shop. I spotted a little girl with curly red hair with a man, who was about 5ft 10in.

“When the little girl looked up, my heart skipped a beat. I took one look and thought, ‘My God, it’s Maddie’.

“They walked off and I had to get my plane.”

Mrs Jones said she reported the incident to Crimestoppers on March 7, and emailed Leicestershire Police.

Maddie from Rothley, Leics, vanished on holiday in Portugal 11 months ago.
