LISBON (Reuters) - Portuguese police were again searching the house of the only official suspect in the case of missing 4-year-old Madeleine McCann, a police spokesman said on Saturday.

Madeleine went missing from the Praia da Luz resort in the Algarve tourist region on May 3, just yards away from the home of Briton 33-year-old Robert Murat. His property was initially searched after Madeleine went missing.

“Searches are being carried out,” a spokesman for the Portuguese police said.

The spokesman declined to comment on whether police were closer to finding Madeleine, who disappeared from her bed in the holiday resort while her parents dined nearby.

Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry McCann have campaigned relentlessly to draw attention to her disappearance. Business tycoons and celebrities ranging from J.K. Rowling to soccer stars have contributed to a reward for her return.
