Disappearance of Madeleine McCann: 2007 disappearance
Madeleine Beth McCann disappeared on the evening of 3 May 2007 from her bed in a holiday apartment at a resort in Praia da Luz, in the Algarve region of Portugal. The Daily Telegraph described the disappearance as "the most heavily reported missing-person case in modern history". Her whereabouts remain unknown, and German prosecutors in 2020 have stated that they assume that she is dead.
