Divers recover bag of small bones in search
Divers searching a reservoir for Madeleine McCann yesterday found a plastic bag containing small bones, according to a report in today's Daily Mail.
Police experts were last night examining the gruesome find at the lake only 20 minutes from the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz, where Madeleine - three at the time - disappeared last May.
Her parents Gerry and Kate McCann were told immediately by a private detective monitoring the search. Portuguese lawyer Marcos Aragao Correia, who sponsored the dive, says he was acting on an underworld tip-off that Madeleine was murdered and her body thrown in a lake within 48-hours of being snatched.
He said last night: "We found two bags, one of which contains some small bones.
"We don't know at this stage if they are human bones. If they are, they look like they come from a child's fingers. They are too small for an adult. I can't tell you how many we found, because we didn't count them.
"As soon as we made the find, we handed them over to the Portuguese authorities and the private detectives working for the McCanns
