As reported in the Daily Mail, Scotland Yard hunt six British cleaners driving a white van.

Scotland Yard said it has identified several “persons of interest” and “both investigative and forensic opportunities” in the case. The force said Friday its work is under way to support police in Portugal, even though they have closed their investigation into the disappearance.
As reported at FOX News, “The purpose of the review was to look at the case with fresh eyes and there is always real benefit in doing so.”
“The purpose of the review was to look at the case with fresh eyes and there is always real benefit in doing so. The review has further identified both investigative and forensic opportunities to support the Portuguese. There is more than a handful of people of interest which could be explored further if only to be eliminated,” Detective Chief Superintendent Hamish Campbell told Sky News.
Portuguese authorities who worked on the original investigation were widely criticized for how they handled the case.
Police initially focused their investigation on Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry. But the two were cleared in July 2008, when the attorney general ruled there was nothing to link them to Madeleine’s disappearance.
UPDATE I: Scotland Yard hunt six British cleaners driving a white van in search for missing Maddie.
British cleaners and Portuguese manual workers are among new suspects in the Madeleine McCann investigation, The Mail on Sunday has learned.
Sources said ‘low-level’ workers – handymen, cleaners and gardeners – have become the focus of interest. Some are thought to have been employed by the Ocean Club complex on a casual basis and may have already been interviewed.
Police are said to be keen to trace six British cleaners who were working in Praia da Luz when Madeleine vanished and who didn’t appear in the Portuguese files.
They are said to have used a white van and went from apartment to apartment offering their services, chiefly concentrating on expats.
