A new image of how missing Madeleine McCann would look aged nine has been released by police.

Detectives investigating the disappearance of Madeleine, aged three when she vanished on a holiday in Portugal with her family. believe she could still be alive five years later.

A fresh image of what Madeleine might look like now has been released, ahead of the anniversary of her disappearance on May 3.

The image of how Madeleine, whose ninth birthday is May 12, would look like today, has been released by police after close collaboration with her family, Glasgow-born Gerry McCann and his wife Kate.

The investigative review began on May 2011 and has included several trips to Portugal where Madeleine went missing from her hotel room in 2007.

Officers are working their way through around 100,000 pages of information and say they have identified 195 investigative opportunities which will be presented to Portuguese authorities.

They also say they are developing "genuinely new material".

DCI Andy Redwood said: "From the outset we have approached this review with a completely open mind, placing Madeleine McCann at the heart of everything we do.

"We are working on the basis of two possibilities here. One is that Madeleine is still alive, and the second that she is sadly dead."

Police want to hear from anyone who was at the Praia da Luz resort between April 28 and May 3, 2007, either on holiday or in residence, particularly in the vicinity of the Ocean Club, and who has not spoken to police.
