Madeleine McCann detectives quiz British barmaid over her German ex-boyfriend who lived near Portuguese resort where toddler vanished in 2007.
The British expat has been questioned about her German ex-boyfriend by Scotland Yard detectives who are still investigating the disappearance of Madeline McCann.
Police entered Carol Hickman’s, 59, bar in Praia da Luz, Portugal where the three year old vanished on holiday in 2007.
She claims to have been pressed for details about her ‘friendly hippy’ former partner Michael Jehle, 51, including his phone number.
The employee of Kelly’s Bar- 450 meters from the resort where the McCann’s had been staying, told Sunday Mirror two plain clothed officers collared her two weeks ago.
‘They came into the bar and said “You can thank Her Majesty for this visit”. Said Ms Hickman.
‘That’s when I knew they were from Scotland Yard. They asked if I could remember May 3, 2007.’
The conversation started at the bar but the interview continued at her home.
Mr Jehle is said to be baffled as to why police would be interested in him.
