Detectives investigating Madeleine McCann’s disappearance have received almost 400 tip-offs after sex fiend Christian Brueckner was named as a suspect.
Officers at Scotland Yard have received numerous emails and phone calls relating to the paedophile as part of Operation Grange.
German authorities believe Madeleine, who was just three-years-old when she vanished, is dead and are investigating rapist Brueckner on suspicion of murder.
But British officers are still treating it as a missing persons case, the Daily Mirror reports.
A Scotland Yard spokesperson said: "We have now received just short of 400 pieces of information.
“We are pleased with the amount of calls and emails coming in and we are assessing them and prioritising them."
Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry McCann 'continue to hope she is alive until they can be shown incontrovertible evidence which proves that she is dead,’ family spokesman Clarence Mitchell said.
He added: "Kate and Gerry continue to be encouraged by the level of response and nearly 400 fresh pieces of information so far is exactly what the Met wanted from their appeal."
Phone records show German national Brueckner, 43, was in Praia da Luz, Portugal, when three-year-old Madeleine was snatched from a holiday apartment in May 2007.
He is understood to have been shopped by a pal who claimed he confessed during a drinking session three years ago that he 'knew all about' what had happened to Madeleine.
He is currently serving seven years in Kiel jail in northern Germany for raping a 72-year-old American woman in Portugal.
Police sensationally revealed on Wednesday night that they had a significant new suspect in the 13-year hunt for Madeleine’s abductor.
Within 24 hours and following an appeal on German TV they had received 270 pieces of information, now steadily increasing.
DCI Mark Cranwell, who is heading Op Grange, said: "We continue to urge anyone with information to come forward and speak with us.|
