German authorities have not revealed what triggered Maddie’s latest search operation, but prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters said they were acting on the basis of “some reports”. “We have indications that we could find evidence,” he told German public broadcaster NDR, clarifying however that the reports did not come from Brueckner.

According to rumors collected by the Daily Mail, German investigators were looking for a gun and a video camera belonged to Brueckner. Both were allegedly stolen from the Portuguese home of the main suspect by some of his acquaintances who then disposed of them by throwing them into the Arade reservoir out of fear. The police would be looking for the camera as they believe it may contain images of Madeleine, but also of other sexual attacks of which the 45-year-old is suspected.

To put them on the trail of these finds would have been one German couple who lived in the Algarve around the same time as Brueckner and that they had been involved in petty theft with him before falling out. According to the same source, the two would have taken possession of two objects but after viewing the video on the camera they would have disposed of them because the video showed a masked man carrying out a sexual attack on a woman. Their story would have been confirmed by a third person by triggering the new research which focused mainly on soil samples.
