Madeleine McCann went missing on the evening of 3 May 2007 when she and her family were on holiday at the resort of Praia da Luz in Portugal. Although there has been much speculation and sightings of Maddie that have proved to be false, there has been no real evidence to point to what happened to the little three year old girl.
However, could Madeleine McCann be buried under the driveway close to the abduction site? Stephen Birch, a commercial real estate developer from South Africa and a self proclaimed investigator says he knows where missing Madeleine “Maddy” McCann is buried. Birch claims to have taken scans with a ground penetrating device last week in Praia da Luz, the Portuguese holiday resort, which includes the property called Casa Lilliana owned by Jennifer Murat; however, the authorities are unwilling to dig up the area.
A self-styled investigator hunting for Madeleine McCann says he has found a burial site under a driveway in the Portuguese town where she went missing in five years ago.
Stephen Birch, who invested £30,000 of his own money investigating the case, says the site in question is on a property not far from where the toddler was last seen.
Birch, a South African property developer has asked Portuguese authorities to excavate the area after making ground radar scans, but the request has been refused.
