    Body Found in Suitcase Wasn't Madeleine McCann: Police

    This March 2007 file photo released by the McCann family shows 3-year-old British girl Madeleine McCann.

    Australian police have ruled out the possibility that a child's body found in a suitcase on the side of a highway is missing British girl Madeleine McCann, NBC News reported.

    South Australia Police had warned a match was "highly unlikely," but the force's Detective Superintendent Des Bray extinguished all possibility Wednesday by announcing that "Madeleine McCann has been totally excluded as a potential victim."

    McCann's 2007 disappearance from her family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, sparked a police investigation costing millions of dollars.

    Countless sightings have been reported but none have been confirmed. No one has ever been charged over her disappearance.
