Madeleine McCann: The Hunt for the Prime Suspect

Three-year-old Madeleine McCann disappeared without trace from her parents' holiday apartment in Portugal 13 years ago. 

It's a mystery that has gripped the world, and now German prosecutors say they believe they have a prime suspect, a convicted sex offender who was living near the apartments at the time. 

But who is Christian B, and why has it taken a decade for him to be linked to the crime?
