London's Metropolitan Police say authorities are combing phone records of tourists and residents who were in a Portuguese resort at the time of the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
Scotland Yard says that since it began its own inquiry, 41 people of interest have been identified, including 15 UK nationals. Detectives in Britain had issued 31 requests to Portugal and other countries for access to the phone records.
A BBC reconstruction program is set to air later this month, and authorities say it contains fresh and substantive new information.
Authorities have expanded their appeal for data to Germany, Holland and Ireland.
