LONDON (AP) — London's Metropolitan Police say authorities are combing phone records of tourists and residents who were in a Portuguese resort at the time of the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood told reporters Thursday that authorities were trawling through phone traffic of people in Praia da Luz around May 3, 2007, when the then-3 year-old vanished.
Scotland Yard says that since it began its own inquiry, 41 people of interest have been identified, including 15 UK nationals. Detectives in Britain had issued 31 requests to Portugal and other countries for access to the phone records.
