Madeleine McCann

Kate and Gerry McCann were dealt a fresh blow yesterday after it emerged the girl seen outside a bank in Belgium last week is not their missing daughter Madeleine.

The blonde blue-eyed girl 'whom Belgian police described as looking 'very similar to Madeleine is a member of a Flemish family. She was out walking with her Moroccan nanny.

Hopes were raised that Madeleine was alive and being held captive after a security guard told police he had seen the youngster outside the KBC bank in the Molenbeek St Jean district of Brussels.

Images on the bank's CCTV cameras prompted further speculation that the youngster, who was with a pregnant woman, could be the McCann's daughter who vanished from Praia da Luz, in Portugal on May 3 last year.

But the girl's father contacted the Belgian authorities on Monday afternoon after he was alerted to the missing persons investigation by a Daily Express appeal.

Belgian State Prosecutor Lieve Pellens told the Daily Express: 'The girl's father came forward yesterday to say that the girl was his daughter.

?He saw this picture and obviously for him it was very easy recognising the girl accompanied by a woman in a veil.

'It's her nanny' she is a young Moroccan woman who is qualified to look after children and works in a care centre.

?Detectives from the Belgian Missing Persons Unit went to visit the family at their home to check everything out.?

Yesterday Clarence Mitchell, the McCann's official spokesman, said that although Kate and Gerry were disappointed, the hunt for missing Madeleine would continue

There have been over 130 'sightings' of Madeleine in Belgium with 30 leads in the past week. Authorities vow to investigate them all.
