British authorities say an investigative review into the case of Madeleine McCann has revealed evidence that indicates the missing girl may still be alive.
"As a result of evidence uncovered during the review, they now believe there is a possibility Madeleine is still alive and are appealing for anyone who is able to provide direct information as to her whereabouts to contact the team," authorities said in a statement.
"The intention is to identify from that material investigative opportunities which we will then present to the Portuguese authorities who retain primacy for the investigation," police added. "Officers have so far identified around 195 such opportunities within the historic material, and are also developing what they believe to be genuinely new material."
British police also released a computer generated photo of what Madeleine may look like now at age 9. Madeline disappeared on May 3, 2007 from her parent’s rented vacation apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal. She was left alone in the apartment with her twin siblings while Kate and Gerry McCann ate dinner at a nearby restaurant. The case was closed by Portuguese authorities in July 2008 after the McCanns were cleared of involvement and no new leads were found.
