Madeleine McCann is buried in woods just six miles from the Portuguese holiday resort where she went missing in 2007, a Clairvoyant has reportedly told police.
The mystic who specialises in finding missing people told officers that Madeleine “is unfortunately dead and buried in Portugal north-east of Lagos”.
Michael Schneider, who has reportedly located the remains of several missing people, has given police exact co-ordinates of a location he believes they will find her body.
He reportedly helped solve a missing woman case in Germany. Sadly, she was found hanging from a tree 36 hours after he gave police officers the correct location.
And he also successfully located the bodies of murdered couple Peter Neumair, 63, and Laura Perselli, 68, who went missing from their home in Bolzano in Italy in January, reports The Mirror.
“I do not give out such information lightly and without constantly questioning myself because I am very well aware of the responsibility of what I do,” said the 50-year-old former TV reporter.
German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters confirmed to the Sunday People that his officers have previously used clairvoyants.
He refused to comment on Mr Schneider, but said: “Several psychics have responded to our call for help in the past year and offered assistance.
“In some cases, we also received concrete tips. We do not ignore them, but we are cautious.”
Mr Schneider contacted the BKA – Germany’s equivalent of the FBI – three weeks ago with his claim. In an email, the BKA said: “Your information will be appropriately incorporated into our work.”
German prosecutors have named paedophile Christian Brueckner, 44, who is currently serving a seven-year sentence for rape, as the prime suspect.
Mr Schneider said: “I am happy that the BKA seem to be taking me seriously.
“Often you have a reputation as a freak or someone just trying to squeeze money out of someone, and this is quite hurtful. I never take money.”
Explaining his technique, Mr Schneider said: “I look at a photo of the missing person and ask myself upwards towards God whether this living being is alive or dead.
“After that I take an atlas or a road map and look at large areas superficially. Afterwards at Google Maps and Earth.
“Then I let my fingers and my eyes circle over these maps until they stop on a spot and mark it.”
However, Madeleine’s parents Kate, 52, and doctor Gerry, 53, from Rothley, Leicestershire, have continued to believe their daughter is still alive. since her disappearance on May 3, 2007
