Prosecutors in Portugal have reopened the case of missing child Madeleine McCann after fresh evidence provided new leads for police, according to the country's public broadcaster.
The British girl was just shy of her fourth birthday when she disappeared from her family's holiday apartment at a Praia da Luz resort on Portugal's southern coast in May 2007. Her parents were out to dinner with friends at a nearby restaurant.
Madeleine's disappearance sparked a search that gripped the world's media, but despite extensive appeals, her fate remains a mystery.
The case was closed in 2008 after authorities failed to find evidence of a crime.
British police recently indicated they have new leads and a global search received hundreds of calls following a new television appeal.
Radiotelevisao Portuguesa reported Thursday that a team of detectives in northern Portugal has been reviewing evidence for almost two years and, with "new elements" from British police, prosecutors were compelled to reopen the case.
