Maddie search inquiry setback

Final attempts by private detectives searching for Madeleine McCann to interview a convicted British paedophile about her disappearance failed last night. Retired UK policemen Dave Edgar and Arthur Cowley flew to Germany yesterday hoping to speak to Raymond Hewlett, who is said to have been staying an hour's drive from the McCanns' Portuguese holiday flat when the little girl vanished. But negotiations between the private investigators and Hewlett's German lawyer broke down.

Mr Edgar, who has been employed by Madeleine's parents, Liverpool-born Kate and Gerry McCann to look for their daughter, said he was "very disappointed" with the lawyer's behaviour. He went on: "I have been attempting to speak with Raymond Hewlett to eliminate him from our investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. "He is not a suspect but I was keen to interview him."
