Metropolitan Police applies for additional funds to find Madeleine

praiadaluzThe UK’s Home Office has confirmed that an application has been received from the Metropolitan Police for additional funds to keep Operation Grange going.
"The Home Office has provided funding to the Metropolitan Police for Operation Grange and the resources required are reviewed regularly with careful consideration given before any new funding is allocated."
Government funding for the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann is set every six months. In October 2017, the sum of around £150,000 was allocated which will run out at the end of March this year.
Madeleine McCann disappeared from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in May, 2007. She was three-years-old and has never been seen again.
The Metropolitan Police launched an investigation in 2011 and so far has spent around €13 million, with no results reported.

Met police "think" they are far superior to their Portugese homologues. Today they only prove they are far more stupid than their Portugese colleagues.If they had started "working" on the case from day 1 probably they might have come up with some results. Both forces (Met and Portugese) are to blaim as none of them did what every other police in the world should have done. This is a farce and a shame !

Madeleine will never be found alive and any further UK tax payers money should not be allocated for this case. Why so much for this and so little for other missing children? Something not quite right here. Read Tony Bennett, if you can get hold of it!

Not again!!!

How about the police publish some results to date after spending £13m, rather than keep coming back for more every 6 months with promises that they are close? Close to having another holiday perhaps.
