Madeleine McCann's parents plan to stay in Portugal to prove their innocence after being named official suspects in the case, friends have toldthe BBC. Jon Corner, the McCann's twins godfacther, said Gerry and Kate McCann, both 39, were determined the search for their daughter would not be "derailed".
Mr Corner said the developments pointed to the "mindset of the Portuguese police. Clearly, they're not investigating or doing the detective work to find Madeleine," he said. "They're actually looking for a very quick, clean closure on the case, and that means turning their focus into the family."
