McCann happy to fly back to Portugal to meet the man who replaces Gonçalo Amaral

“Madeleine McCann’s parents are happy to fly to Portugal to meet whoever replaces sacked Chief Inspector Gonçalo Amaral in the investigation into their daughter’s disappearance”, according to the Daily Express.

Friends of the couple also revealed last night that they “were anxious in case the wait for a replacement delayed the search for four-year-old Madeleine. If the new head of the investigation were to say he would like to meet them, they would do that, but it has not been discussed at the moment,” said a non-identified source quoted by Daily Express: “They hope that the Portuguese authorities will see that the position is filled as urgently as possible because there is still a need for Madeleine to be found.”
