Interpol Paraguay Has No Clues Regarding Madeleine McMann

ASUNCION – Interpol Paraguay told EFE on Wednesday that there is no indication that Madeleine McCann, the British girl who disappeared in Portugal in 2007, was ever in the South American country, as a purported private investigator claimed causing a stir in the Paraguayan media.

The alleged private eye, a Briton named Miraz Ullah Ali Isa, said in an interview with the daily ABC Color that he went to the town of Aregua – located some 28 kilometers (17 miles) from Asuncion – last weekend, where the girl had been living for two months in the house of an unidentified woman.

After the publication of the interview on Monday, Interpol agents did some checking in that city but found no trace of the missing girl.

“For the moment, there’s absolutely nothing,” said Interpol Paraguay chief Luis Ignacio Arias.

Arias also said that apparently there is “little truth” in the alleged detective’s account, adding that he did not communicate with Interpol or local authorities during the time he was in Paraguay.

“If he had a real interest in that search he should have been in communication with us or with the police,” Arias said.

The Interpol official added that the alleged private eye entered Paraguay as a tourist and was in the country from March 3-7, during which time he traveled to Aregua and took several photos.

During that time he granted the interview with ABC Color and left a phone number in Britain for anyone wanting to share details linked to the case, given that there is a reward for any information of that kind, Arias said.

He also said that, according to Interpol’s investigation, the man did not appear to be registered as a private investigator and the phone number he left belongs to a company from which he had been fired.

Little Madeleine was sleeping with her twin brothers in an apartment in the Portuguese town of Praia Da Luz, when she disappeared under mysterious circumstances while her parents were dining with friends at a nearby restaurant.

The parents then initiated an unprecedented global campaign to try to find their daughter, which has never ended.
