DETECTIVES in Portugal investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, three, have investigated 350 separate suspicious incidents.

As two child abduction experts arrived from the UK yesterday, police in the Algarve said they had received hundreds of calls and interviewed more than 100 people. Police are reported to be investigating British paedophiles with links to the Algarve.

Portuguese media said authorities in the UK have supplied detectives in the region with information on child abusers who have moved or travel there.

The British ambassador, John Buck, last night said: "The Portuguese authorities are very pleased with the collaboration of the British authorities. They are in close touch with Interpol and Europol, and I know [Madeleine's parents] Kate and Gerry are very grateful for their efforts."

The Portuguese football stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Ferreira appealed yesterday for the three-year-old's return.
