Madeleine McCann latest – Fears body will be found in Portugal woodland as cops investigate clairvoyant's shock claims

MADDIE cops are said to be investigating claims made by a clairvoyant who believes she is buried in woodland close to Praia de Luz.

Michael Schneider, who has successfully located the remains of several missing people, has given police the exact coordinates of where he thinks her body is in Portugal.

He believes Maddie is buried in a forest just six miles from the holiday resort she vanished from way back in May 2007.

He contacted the BKA – Germany’s equivalent of the FBI – three weeks ago with the details and they allegedly replied: "Your ­information will be appropriately incorporated into our work."

German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters told the Sunday People his officers have used clairvoyants – people who claim to have supernatural abilities – to aid other cases.

Madeleine disappeared during a family holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on May 3, 2007, when she was three years old.

    WHAT HAS SCHNEIDER SAID ABOUT MADDIE?

    Speaking about Madeleine's case Schneider said: "I do not give out such information lightly and without constantly questioning myself because I am very well aware of the responsibility of what I do.

    "I am happy that the BKA seem to be taking me seriously.

    "Often you have a reputation as a freak or someone just trying to squeeze money out of someone, and this is quite hurtful. I never take money."

    WHAT DOES MICHAEL SCHNEIDER DO?

    Schneider says his technique is to look at a missing person's photo and ask himself "upwards towards God whether this living being is alive or dead".

    He then runs his fingers and eyes over an atlas, Google Maps and Google Earth "until they stop on a spot".

    Using this tecnique he was able to assist police in locating a number of missing people.
