Traditional posters appealing for information from the Portuguese resort where Madeleine disappeared have been translated into several languages.
Tourists who stayed at the Portuguese resort from where she was abducted have been urged in the past three weeks to hand over any holiday photographs which might contain clues to her kidnapper.
British detectives have been using advanced facial recognition software to scan the pictures and pass on any useful information to Portuguese police. 1,000 images have been uploaded by British and some German holiday makers who visited the resort in the two weeks before Madeleine's disappearance.
