Missing girl's parents return

September 10, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

A British couple named as suspects in the disappearance of their 4-year-old daughter have returned to England, days after being grilled by Portuguese police about new forensic evidence authorities believe ties them to the case.

Kate and Gerry McCann flew from southern Portugal with their 2-year-old twins. On the airport tarmac in central England, Gerry McCann denied being involved in the disappearance of his 4-year-old daughter, Madeleine.

"While it is heartbreaking to return to the U.K. without Madeleine, it does not mean we are giving up the search for her," he said.

On Friday, Portuguese police named the McCanns as suspects in Madeleine's May 3 disappearance.
