POLICE in Hanover search a new property close to Christian B’s secret cellar lair in Madeleine McCann search
Police began searching a new property in the German of Laatzen near Hanover on Wednesday, November, 18 as they look for a breakthrough in the case. Sniffer dogs were on hand to help the search close to suspect Christian Brueckner’s home, where a secret cellar that may have been used for his crimes was discovered.
The German paedophile was named as the prime suspect in June in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann from an apartment in Praia da Luz in 2007.
Speaking in June, German prosecutors investigating the disappearance said they are “assuming” Madeleine is dead.
Hans Christian Wolters, from the Braunschweig Public Prosecutor’s Office in Germany, said: “We are assuming that the girl is dead.
“With the suspect, we are talking about a sexual predator who has already been convicted of crimes against little girls and he’s already serving a long sentence.”
Authorities did not give any official explanation for the search, but local newspaper Neue Press reported that officials were launching an investigation after a tip-off.
