Bruckner, 45, denied involvement in Madeline’s disappearance from her bedroom during her family vacation.

It is speculated that evidence related to Madeleine was found in the camper Van Bruckner, who was using her at the time of her disappearance. A CMTV journalist asked Walters if he denied those claims, and he replied, “I don’t want to deny it.”

Motorhomes have been in possession of German police since June 2020, when authorities began seeking information on Bruckner.

Walters, who could not get immediate comments, said he could not provide details of the ongoing German investigation because the suspect had not yet been informed.

He previously told Reuters that the nomination of Bruckner as a suspect in the case by a Portuguese prosecutor was designed to thwart Portugal’s 15-year statute of limitations.

“Regardless of the outcome, Madeleine has always been our daughter and a truly horrific crime has been committed,” Madeleine’s parents said in a statement on Tuesday.

McCann’s has been constantly campaigning to draw attention to his daughter’s disappearance, and British celebrities from business tycoons to writers and soccer stars have sought information.
