The search for missing Madeleine McCann could be all but ended within the next month according to reports in the UK.
According to The Daily Mail newspaper, the search Madeleine could be ended by the new Home Secretary as funding for the search is set to run out within the next three weeks.
Although no official confirmation has been made by the British Home Office, the paper claim Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry are preparing for a decision which could all but end the 11 year investigation.
Madeleine who was just three years old went missing in Praia da Luz in Portugal in May 2007.
The Daily Mail say a well placed source told them that the McCann’s are in the dark on whether or not more police funding will be made available to continue the search.
It is thought that the British Home Office are considering their options in regards to the case as a total of £11m has been spent funding the search over the past 11 years.
The latest developments come six months after £150,000 was granted to continue the scaled down operation Grange.
However it is now reported that the operation could be stood down as recent trips by detectives on the case has provided little to no information in regards to Madeleine’s disappearence.
