Remember Madeleine McCann?
The hunt for four-year-old Madeleine, who was snatched from the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz on May 3 - exactly three months ago, switched to Belgium last night after a series of "highly credible" sightings:
... A woman has told police that she saw an English-speaking woman with a Dutch man and young girl at a cafe in the Belgian town of Tongeren, near Maastricht.On Tuesday a team of specially trained British experts in crimes against children was reported to have flown to Portugal to help in the hunt for Madeleine, and the international search appears to be heating up with even UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown now getting involved.
... The witness, a children's therapist, telephoned police but when she returned to her table the three had disappeared, she said.
A Tongeren police spokesman said they were treating the sighting "very seriously".
A spokesman said: "The woman told us the little girl bore a striking resemblance to Madeleine McCann and was behaving nervously.
"She said she got up to call us as soon as she saw the girl, but when she returned to her table all three of them got into a car and left.
It is the second reported sighting of Madeleine in Belgium since the child was taken from her hotel room in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz.
A Belgian couple said they saw the girl outside the caathedral in Liege on June 1.
