A businessman hired to help look for Madeleine McCann who is wanted by US authorities over an alleged fraud has been arrested. Kevin Halligen, 48, was arrested yesterday at the Old Bank Hotel in Oxford after a discrepancy over his hotel bill and is currently in custody. The US department of justice issued an indictment for Halligen two weeks ago alleging that he had tried to defraud a London law firm of more than £1.2million. His firm Oakley International were used by Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry for around six months last year to look for their missing daughter. The Washington firm were paid around £300,000 to help look for Madeleine after she went missing, then aged three, from an Algarve resort in May 2007.
