It has been revealed that a suspect could soon be charged in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
Reports suggest German police could soon charge main suspect Christian Brückner, 45, in the new year.
It has been almost 16 years since the then three-year-old Madeleine McCann disappeared from her bed while on a family holiday in southern Portugal in May 2007.
Brueckner from Germany is a convicted pedophile and the prime suspect in the ongoing investigation.

The Sun reports that Brueckner could be charged within the next 12 months.
Police continue their investigation as they review evidence leading to a possible arrest.
There is also a high-level meeting between law enforcement officials on the investigation, due to take place next month in Wiesbaden, western Germany.
Once charged, Brueckner would likely face trial in September.
Police have identified Brueckner as the prime suspect in their investigations since 2020 after discovering the convicted pedophile was living in a mobile home near the McCann family’s holiday home in Praia da Luz, southern Portugal.
Christian Brueckner has always denied any involvement in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
Brueckner is currently serving a seven-year sentence in Germany for a rape he committed in Portugal in 2005.
His prison term is scheduled to end in September 2025.
Just last month, German police in the northern city of Braunschweig charged him with five more individual counts against Brueckner.

The cases allegedly concern sex offenses committed in Portugal between 2000 and 2017.
These include the rapes of two unidentified women in Portugal, the rape of a 20-year-old Irish woman in 2004, the sexual abuse of a 10-year-old German girl in April 2007 on a Portuguese beach — near where Madeleine disappeared, just one Month later – and another sexual abuse case in 2017, again in Portugal.
Brueckner has consistently maintained his innocence, claiming that German police tried to frame him for the numerous crimes in hopes he would crack the horns and confess.
In a letter from prison received by The Mirror in November, the convicted rapist wrote: “There is absolutely no evidence that I committed any of these crimes. No DNS, nothing.
“The prosecutor’s office is trying to trap me and hope that I will capitulate under the mental pressure.
“They hope that I’ll just say ‘yes’ to anything that gives me a chance to escape this mental torture.”
