A private investigator says he has identified two key suspects in the 2007 kidnapping of Madeleine McCann  and believes she was taken to the United States.
Marcelino Italiano, 36, told the Sun  he’s informed police that the then 3-year-old was taken by a Portuguese pedophile ring that hunts children in the Algarve region of southern Portugal then smuggles them out of the country, the Sun reported.
“I know these people were involved and I have been told that Madeleine may now be in America,” he said. “…I think there have been over a dozen children kidnapped. They prey on the weak and vulnerable.”
Madeleine vanished in May of 2007 while vacationing with her family in Algarve.
