Hans Christian Wolters, who is leading the inquiry into Christian B's alleged links to Madeleine's disappearance in Portugal in 2007, said there was no "forensic evidence", reports the Mirror. 

Other clues he said were "not enough to get an arrest warrant".

The 43-year-old - a drifter with child abuse images and rape convictions - was named as a suspect in June by German cops who claimed they had "strong evidence".

But Mr Wolters said: "At the moment our evidence is not so strong we are sure he will be sentenced by the court."

He told the podcast They’ve Taken Her: "Maybe we need more witnesses or photos or video."

He added: "Maybe we need one witness who can tell us the things we don’t know."

A McCann family friend said: "It feels like he is trying to lower expectations after coming out all guns blazing.

"It’s heartbreaking for Kate and Gerry."
