The £12 million hunt for Madeleine McCann could come to an end this week, as funds for the search are set to run dry.

Kate and Gerry McCann, both 49, from Rothley, Leicestershire, are waiting to find out if extra funding for Operation Grange – the massive Metropolitan Police manhunt for their missing daughter, Madeleine – will be granted by police.

The money for Operation Grange is set to run out as soon as Saturday.

Madeleine vanished from the family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal in May 2007, aged three. Since, Kate and Gerry have dedicated themselves to finding their daughter.

Scotland Yard has requested an undisclosed sum from the Home Office ‘to pursue a final line of inquiry’, but a further funding pledge is yet to be announced.

The Home Office added:

The application for funding will be considered. They have needed to justify what the money would be spent on.

A family spokesman said earlier this month:

Naturally, Kate and Gerry hope the Met request is granted.

They are encouraged that there remains work to be done that requires extra funding and they remain very grateful to all Operation Grange officers who are continuing to look for their daughter.

A Scotland Yard spokesman stated funding is in place until the end of September.

Any details about future funding will be released when appropriate.
