Madeleine McCann: German prosecutor fears there's more British victims of prime suspect Christian B

THE German prosecutor investigating Madeleine McCann’s disappearance fears prime suspect Christian B may have committed more crimes against British victims.

Hans Christian Wolters believes there could be more British, Irish and American people who have fallen victim to the 43-year-old German paedophile.

He has urged potential victims to contact police so they can “solve these cases”.

It comes as Mr Wolters said he has "evidence" Madeleine is dead but not enough to charge Christian B.

Mr Wolters wants Brit tourists and expats to help identify the German's homes so police can launch new searches for her body.

He told Sky News: “We think our suspect has done more crimes possibly against British, Irish or American people.

“All these people are asked to call us so we can solve these cases.”


Last night he said prosecutors were missing "hard evidence" needed for the suspect to go on trial.

He said: "All indications we have got that I can't tell you points in the direction that Madeleine is dead.

"The hard evidence we don’t have, we don’t have the crucial evidence of Madeleine McCann’s body.

"We expect that she is dead, but we don’t have enough evidence that we can get a warrant for our suspect in Germany for the murder of Madeleine McCann."

He added: “At the moment we also don’t have enough proof for a trial at court, but we have some evidence that the suspect has done the deed.

"That’s why we need more information from people, especially places he has lived so we can target these places especially and search there for Madeleine."

“We think our suspect has done more crimes possibly against British, Irish or American people.

Madeleine went missing on a family holiday with parents Kate and Gerry in Praia de Luz, Portugal in 2007.

After thirteen years of searching, her body has never been found, though German national Christian B has now been named as the prime suspect in the case.

And since he was named publicly, UK and Germany police have received hundreds of tips about the sex offender and the two vehicles he was using at the time of the crime, Mr Wolters said.

The prosecutor is now calling on others who may have known Christian B at the time to contact authorities with potentially crucial information.

He said: "Basically, we need every information in that time period, where did he live, where did he work, to which places he had a special relationship, who were his friends and the people he knew.

"Who can tell us what the suspect's life was like, where has he been with his cars, who has been in his houses and can tell us what they look like from the inside.


"And we hope that maybe we find victims that maybe also got in these houses, victims of sexual crimes."

Christian B has also been linked by police to the disappearance of a six-year-old boy in Portugal in 1996 and a five-year-old girl in Germany in 2015.

Authorities in Belgium have also linked him to the murder of missing 16-year-old Carola Titze, who disappeared while on holiday in De Haan in 1996.

And a father of a Brit who vanished in Germany nearly 20 years ago said he fears Christian B also abducted his daughter.

Trainee nurse Louise Kerton, 24, went missing in Germany in 2001 while the murder suspect was flitting between Portugal and his German homeland.

Distraught dad Phil Kerton, 75, told The Sun: “Christian seems to have gone after all ages, despite preferring the very young.

"I would urge police to make sure his whereabouts and his activities at the time of Louise’s disappearance are properly investigated."
