The British police, who are investigating Madeleine McCann's disappearance, have declined a letter to her parents that revealed evidence of her death.
It comes after German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters, who heads the investigation into the main German suspect in Madeleine's disappearance, said, "We wrote to the McCanns to let them know that Madeleine was dead."
The McCanns looked back on the reports earlier this week and said, "The widespread news that we have received a letter from the German authorities saying there is evidence or evidence that Madeleine is dead is FALSE."
The police from Met followed on Friday with the following words: “Following reports in the national press about the investigation into Madeleine McCann's disappearance, we will issue this clarification.

"The Met received a letter from the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) on June 12, which was forwarded to the family.
"The letter did not state that there was evidence or evidence that Madeleine was dead. The Met continues to investigate Madeleine's disappearance as an investigation into a missing person.
"The Met has not received a letter from the German public prosecutor."
What follows is the revelation that a German man is being investigated as part of a murder investigation into Madeleine's disappearance, while the Met continues to treat the case as an investigation into a missing person.
