Madeleine McCann cop: New evidence 'most hopeful I've been in 13 years'

It remains one of the biggest mysteries of our generation, but on Wednesday night, police announced a new lead in the search for Madeleine McCann. Now, 13 years after she disappeared, police have identified a German national as a suspect, with German prosecutors claiming in a conference today they believe Madeleine is dead.

Hans Christian Wolters, a spokesman for the Braunschweig Public Prosecutor's Office, said: "In connection with the disappearance of the three-year-old British girl Madeleine McCann on May 3 2007 from an apartment complex in Praia da Luz, in Portugal, the Braunschweig prosecution is investigating against a 43-year-old German on suspicion of murder."

"We are assuming that the girl is dead."

We spoke to former police officer Jim Gamble, who worked on the original investigation, to get his thoughts on the press conference.

"I think until we've got the evidence to substantiate that, I would never want to take away hope." Jim said.

"You've got to think, how do people get up every morning, how do Kate and Gerry look after Sean and Amelie. Maybe I've missed some of the evidence but I think the approach of New Scotland Yard is we don't know what happened to Madeleine and looking to find what happened is the right one.... but I won't hypothesise about whether she's alive or dead or not. "

Earlier in the show, Phillip and Holly also caught up with the McCann's spokesperson Clarence Mitchell to discuss the latest developments in the case.
