A source close to Madeleine McCann's parents has told ITV News that they are "aware" Portuguese police are investigating the possibility a former employee at the hotel in Praia de Luz where the family were staying may have kidnapped her.
It is understood the 40-year-old man died in a tractor accident in 2009 - two years after Madeleine disappeared.
