    GERMAN police have said their investigation into Madeleine McCann’s disappearance has shown her parents are completely innocent.

    Cops said they have found “no indication whatsoever” that the tot’s mum and dad, Kate and Gerry, were involved when she vanished while on holiday in Praia da Luz in 2007.

    German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters was speaking on Portuguese television as he continued to insist Christian B is their “only” suspect.

    He also said that “everything” the investigators have points to Madeleine being dead, despite her parents refusing to believe it until her body has been found.

    Wolters addressed unfounded allegations against Kate and Gerry as he responded to criticism of the investigation from controversial ex-cop Goncalo Amaral.

    Amaral was a top inspector in the Polícia Judiciária (PJ), a police division for investigating the most serious crimes, at the time of Maddie’s disappearance.

    He was removed from his post over the poor handling of the case after he gave Madeleine’s parents suspect status.

    He has continued to act as a commentator on Madeleine’s disappearance, and most recently was claimed convicted paedophile Christian B is being treated as a “scapegoat”.

    The disgraced cop insists that Madeleine died in an accident at the McCann’s apartment at the Ocean Club and Kate and Gerry tried to cover it up.

    Speaking on RTP show Sexta as 9, Wolters said: “I know this former inspector speaks a lot and comments on our work.

    “We’re not going to get into a war of words. All I will say is that we have carried out a very serious investigation and there is no indication whatsoever Madeleine McCann’s parents are linked to her disappearance.

    “On the other hand we have a lot of evidence pointing to Christian B killing her.

    “Goncalo Amaral knows how he reaches his conclusions and that’s not up to us to judge.”

    Wolters once again doubled down that Christian B is the one who killed Madeleine, saying there are “many pieces of the puzzle” pointing towards him.

    However, the prosecutor admitted there is no “smoking gun” as the 43-year-old German has still not yet been charged despite being named as a suspect back in June.

    German authorities are treating Madeleine’s death as a murder probe, while Scotland Yard continue to treat it as a missing persons case.

    He said: “The result of our investigation does not point in any way to the possibility the suspect might have kept Madeleine alive.

    “We have nothing to indicate she could be alive.

    “Everything we have points to her being dead. We have no margin of manoeuvre.”

    Wolters added; “We are only investigating Christian B, nobody else. At this stage we believe he acted alone in this case.”

    Kate and Gerry have been left exasperated by prosecutors saying their daughter is a murder victim and even though they don’t have evidence to charge him.

     “Until a body is found and it is proved to be Madeleine’s, Kate and Gerry are not giving up hope,” a family source told HOAR.

    “These latest ‘she’s dead but there’s no body’ theories have been repeated over the past three-and-a-half months but in all this time there appears to be no significant new development.

    “It leaves Kate and Gerry on tenterhooks and in a state of limbo not knowing if there will be a breakthrough or if German officers sadly may have got wrong. It’s been another desperately difficult time for them.”

    The McCann pal added: ‘They want answers more than anyone but while the Met Police are still treating Madeleine’s disappearance as a missing people’s inquiry… it gives the family hope she could still be alive.

    “Nothing has changed for them. They will continuing hoping until they know for sure.”

    Kate and Ferry McCann refuse to believe Madeleine is dead

    Christian B  is currently serving a 21-month sentence in Germany for drug offences after he was sensationally named as a suspect just after the 13th anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance.

    The serial sex offender is also facing a separate sentence for the rape of a 72-year-old American woman on a waterfront villa less than a mile from where Madeleine went missing.

    Madeleine is believed to have been snatched from the holiday apartment where she was sleeping alongside her twin siblings Sean and Amelie on May 3, 2007, in Praia du Luz.

    Described as a “twisted loner”, Christian B is understood to have been a kind of drifter around the resort at the time.

    He was first linked to the Madeleine case after he allegedly made a drunken boast he snatched her while in a bar on the tenth anniversary of the crime.

    Madeleine would have turned 17 this year, and the family have described the identification of Christian B as “potentially very significant”.

    However, cops fear many witnesses may never come forward as they are “terrified” of Christian B.

    Experts have said Christian B matches the profile of a Jimmy Savile-style “paraphiliac”, who targets victims of all ages.

    His ex-lawyer Serafim Vieira has described him as having “‘psychopathic traits” and admitted he could be responsible for Madeleine’s abduction.

    Christian B had a rundown and dilapidated shack only two miles away from the McCann’s holiday let.

    And he is known to have owned a mobile home he boasted could carry “drugs and children”.

    Mobile phone data suggests prolific sex offender Christian B was in the Portuguese resort when Madeleine vanished – and made a mysterious call just one hour before she was taken.

    He is believed to have made a living selling drugs and stealing from holiday apartments.

    Christian B’s pal Manfred Seyferth, 64, said the paedo was known as the “The Climber” thanks to his skills of breaking into flats and hotel rooms.

    And he added he believes Christian B is an “evil psychopath” who is “capable of taking a small child” and was “obsessed with small children”.
