Photo taken in Morocco purported to be Madeleine McCann.
A snatched picture purporting to be of Madeleine McCann in north Morocco was published last night, generating new momentum in the search for her.
Gerry and Kate McCann called last night for the picture, taken on August 31 by a Spanish tourist and handed to the McCannsï¿½?? lawyers yesterday morning, to be fully investigated.
The picture shows a light-skinned, blonde-haired girl being carried in a sling on a Moroccan womanï¿½??s back near the town of Zinat. It is the fourth reported sighting of a girl fitting Madeleineï¿½??s description in Morocco since she disappeared on May 3 but the first published picture.
A Spanish newspaper reported yesterday that another tourist saw a girl resembling Madeleine as she drove through the town of Zaio in northern Morocco at the end of May."
