Police Have New Information – level 1

10-06-2020 15:00

In 2007, Madeleine McCann is on holiday in Portugal. Madeleine is four years old. She sleeps in an apartment with her two brothers. Her parents are in a restaurant with their friends.

Madeleine’s parents come to the apartment to check on the children. At 10 pm, Madeleine is not in the apartment.

Police do not know where the girl is. The police make a mistake. They think that Madeleine’s parents do something to the girl. However, later, the police find out that it is not true. For 13 years, the police do not know what happens to the girl.

Now, the police have new information. The police suspect a German man. The man is 43 years old. He lives in Portugal in 2007. People see him near the hotel. The police believe that the man does something to Madeleine.

Difficult words: apartment (a home that you can rent for a holiday or to live in for a long time), check on (to see if someone or something is okay), suspect (when police think that someone does something wrong).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
