(Newser) – Madeleine McCann's parents are demanding a brutal British pedophile come forward with any information he has about the disappearance of their daughter, reports the Independent. Raymond Hewlett, who has served time for assaulting young girls, was staying at a campsite near the Portugal resort where Maddy McCann vanished two years ago during a family vacation. British police plan to interview Hewlitt, who is recovering from surgery for throat cancer in Germany.
