MYSTERY

Madeleine McCann May Be Alive

British police said Wednesday they want to reopen the Madeleine McCann case, since new evidence indicates the missing girl may still be alive. McCann, whose ninth birthday is May 12, disappeared when she was 4 years old while her family vacationed in Portugal in May 2007. Since then the case has captivated Britain, and Scotland Yard said that, after sifting through a yearlong Portuguese investigation that netted 40,000 pieces of material, they believe she is still alive. Police also issued a photo of how they believe she would look as a 9-year-old.
