Confusion Over McCann Evidence

Another strange twist in the case of a missing English girl.

There's some confusion over just how much evidence the Portuguese police have against Madeline McCann's parents.

This weekend, Kate and Gerry McCann were officially named suspects in their four-year-old daughter's disappearance.

Officers believed sniffer dogs found traces of Madeline's blood in a car the McCann's rented 25 days after Madeline vanished.

Portuguese police now say the tests are inconclusive.

Under Portuguese law, the couple was allowed to return home to England where they continue to plead their innocence.

"We have played no part in the disappearance of our daughter," Madeline's father, Gerry McCann said.

Back in England, the McCann's are consulting their own attorneys and pressing the investigation to keep focusing on finding Madeline.

The case came to the world's attention when celebrities, including soccer icon David Beckham, offered their help to find little Madeline.

In the beginning, her parents traveled abroad to drum up support and even met with Pope Benedict XVI.
