5 year old disappears close to where Madeleine McCann went missing

A 5-year-old girl went missing when she went to a local store to buy crisps.

What makes this all the more eerie, the place of her disappearance was just 2 hours outside the Praia da Luz resort where Madeleine McCann went missing.

Could there be a link??

A 5-year-old girl disappeared in an area searched as part of the hunt for Madeleine McCann.

The family of Spanish Mari Luz Cortes fear she has been snatched.

Her father, Juan Jose, broke down in tears and said: “Whoever has her, bring her back and everything will be okay.”

The area in Huelva, Spain, which borders Portugal, has been searched by 100 police officers and 500 volunteers.

Search teams are also hunting on the Portuguese side of the border.

Mari Luz went out to buy a packet of crisps from a local shop on Sunday afternoon.

She was last seen by the shopkeeper at around 5pm.
