(Newser) – And the search for Madeleine McCann is on again: Police have produced a new list of suspects in the case of the toddler who went missing in Portugal in 2007, following a lengthy and expensive new review, the Telegraph reports. "There is more than a handful of people of interest which could be explored further if only to be eliminated," said DCS Hamish Campbell from Scotland Yard, who maintains McCann could still be alive. Now police just have to convince authorities in Portugal to pick up the investigation once again.

Thirty officers spent two years combing through papers and evidence, and detectives traveled to Portugal 10 times to complete the inquiry, which cost a reported $3 million, the Guardian reports. But so far, Portugal's attorney general has refused to reopen the probe. "The Portuguese hopefully will pursue some of these investigative opportunities with our assistance," said Campbell. "You only have to look at the case in Cleveland, Ohio ... Of course, there is a possibility she is alive, you cannot exclude it."

"And the search for Madeleine McCann is on again..." Why 'and'? Is the search for a missing child a wacky race?

Look what the spend and spend some more government is doing today in the way of child abuse. They are destroying the future of our kids and grand children heaping more and more debt on them. Of course they claim they are spending and borrowing for the children's sake.
