DETECTIVES: Police have taken the search for Maddie to Bulgaria

They are there to find the elusive “woman in purple” who may hold the key to her disappearance.

Her husband, now dead, is a convicted paedophile, The Sun reports.

It was revealed back in May the woman was seen lurking outside the Brit child’s apartment 90 minutes before the youngster vanished.

Two witnesses reported seeing the “woman in purple” staring at the holiday flat Maddie, then three, went missing from in 2007.

The “woman in purple” and her husband were working near the Algarve holiday apartment where Maddie vanished.

They were reported to police but it was only when the Metropolitan Police re-examined statements that the lead was followed up.

The “woman in purple” and her husband vanished after Madeleine went missing.

Police have been unable to locate her despite extensive searches.

But now they have followed the clues back to Bulgaria.

A source told The Sun: “There is no evidence they were involved but it would be good to eliminate them from the investigation.”

Scotland Yard’s £12 million hunt for Maddie – Operation Grange – has now been handed another £154,000 as cops try to track the witness.

The Home Office also gave the Metropolitan Police another £85,000 in March to extend its investigation.

Parents Kate and Gerry, both 49, from Leicestershire, have always maintained hope she is still alive since her devastating disappearance.

Back in May they recounted the horrifying night on the 10-year anniversary of when she went missing.

It was revealed last month the official website set up to help find Maddie has been “barraged with hate” by sick trolls.
