An explosive report from US publication The National Enquirer has today claimed to have confirmed Madeleine McCann was 'stolen by traffickers' from her family's hotel room in Portugal in 2007, an investigation has revealed.
The National Enquirer's investigation has today claimed to have 'cracked the most famous missing persons case,' and has learned Scotland Yard has identified a 'person of significance' in the 11-year-old mystery.
According to the publication, law enforcement have travelled to Bolivia to track down the suspected culprit.
Psychologist and sex trafficking expert Remi Alli told the Enquirer, 'Scotland Yard isn't giving up on this case! Why? Because they know how to recognise sex trafficking and they've noticed a pattern.'
Gerry and Kate McCann, Madeleine's heartbroken parents, were at dinner with friends on May 3, 2007, when their then three-year-old toddler vanished from the family's ground-floor apartment at a resort in Portugal's Algarve region.
Since then, a staggering $15million has been spent investigating the shocking disappearance.
The National Enquirer claims to have obtained a copy of a Scotland Yard report that notes 'traffickers prey on children and young people.'
On top of the National Enquirer's shocking new evidence, in March police were granted additional funds to search for Madeleine.
On June 15, police traveled to the tiny town of Kamen Bryag, Bulgaria, to track down a suspect, who the Enquirer alleges has been 'hiding since the kidnap occurred.'
Police sources also told the Enquirer that since the young girls' disappearance, Portugal police have reported over 30 incidents similar to that of Madeleine's.
These reportedly include attempted kidnapping and 'near misses' when culprits attempted to enter hotel windows.
Since the 2007 disappearance, police have investigated more than 600 people and reviewed 40,000 documents.
The McCann's have vowed to continue to search for their daughter, who would now be 15.
Kate has said, 'We will go on, try out hardest, never give up and make the best of the life we have.'
The McCann's are yet to respond to the National Enquirer's latest report.
