The Telegraaf says it received an anonymous letter claiming to know the whereabouts of missing British toddler Madeleine McCann.
The paper says the letter could be an important lead as it resembles one received last year claiming to know the locations of two missing Belgian girls. The girls’ bodies were found 2km from where the letter had indicated.
It has now been handed over to the Amsterdam police who have in turn given it to the Portuguese authorities.
Madeleine’s parents were in the Netherlands last week appealing for help in finding their daughter, who was taken from her bedroom during a family holiday in Portugal.
