Madeleine McCann

A KEY Irish witness who believes he may have seen Madeleine McCann being carried away on the night of her disappearance has said he ‘does not recognise’ new suspect Christian Brueckner as the man he saw carrying her.

Martin Smith, a former Unilever executive from Drogheda, Co. Louth, made a statement along with his wife Mary, daughter Aoife and son Peter soon after Madeleine vanished on May 3, 2007.

Mr Smith helped compile e-fits a year later, but the images were not released at the time and were only made public in 2013.
