LISBON, Portugal (AP) - Portugal's public broadcaster says prosecutors are reopening the police investigation into the disappearance of British girl Madeleine McCann, after a review of evidence found new leads in the case.
Radiotelevisao Portuguesa said Thursday the public prosecutor decided to reopen the case after "new indications" emerged, though it gave no details. The public prosecutor's office could not immediately be reached.
The case was closed in 2008 because authorities had detected no crime.
Madeleine McCann vanished during a family vacation in southern Portugal's Algarve region in May 2007, shortly before her fourth birthday.
A team of detectives from Porto, in northern Portugal, began reviewing the evidence almost two years ago.
British police have also been sifting through the case files in Portugal and say they have identified new avenues of investigation.
