Detectives searching for new leads in the 2007 disappearance of Madeleine McCann have received 5,000 calls. Investigators were inundated with tips from U.K., Germany and Holland after police issued a computer-generated image of a suspect last month, Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood told the BBC. "The media appeals produced a fantastic response from the public in all three countries,” he said. “I know the appeal generated a large number of calls to the Portuguese police also."
