PORTUGUESE cops admitted yesterday they are hunting a man seen carrying a child near the time Maddie was snatched - after the McCanns threatened legal action.

The frustrated couple said they would resort to lawyers if the information was not made public.

Cops had the detailed description TWO DAYS days after the kidnap.

The suspect was seen in the area at 9.30pm - and "carrying a child or an object that could have been taken as a child".

Chief Inspector Olegario da Sousa said the man was 35 to 40, medium build and 5ft 10in. He was wearing a dark jacket, light beige trousers and dark shoes.

Meanwhile, ex-squaddies Colin Sahlke, 46, and Steve Taylor, 32, have quit their jobs in Leeds to search for Maddie on the Algarve.

They say they will not touch any reward money if they find the tot.
