Portuguese police are expected to announce that their trip to the U.K. to re-interview the group of friends dining with missing Madeleine McCann’s parents at the time of her disappearance was not productive, the Daily Mail reported.
Chief Inspector Paulo Rebelo will tell prosecutors no new leads turned up after their recent meeting with the Tapas 7, the newspaper reported.
Madeleine was reported missing May 3 from her bedroom while her family was vacationing in Praia da Luz, Portugal, last year.
Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, were considered suspects, and have always maintained they had nothing to do with their daughter's disappearance.
"Kate and Gerry should now be eliminated from the police inquiry," Clarence Mitchell, a spokesman for the McCanns' told the Daily Mail, after learning there was no new evidence.
