This is what Madeleine McCann looks like now, according to an image created by a “super recogniser”.

Simone Malik uses genetics and a natural facial recognition “gift” to produce the pictures.

Simone, 41, said: “I know as a super recogniser that is her face, that’s her nose.

“I think she’d be quite easy to find if she is alive, which we hope that she is.

“I think people just need some guidance that this may possibly be her face that we’re looking for.” Simone has shared the
image of Madeleine – who vanished on holiday in Portugal in 2007 aged three – in the hope that someone will recognise her.

The former NHS worker from Bradford, West Yorkshire, said she believes Madeleine, who would be 18, would have the same nose as her aunt Philomena rather than her parents Kate and Gerry McCann.

Ex-Scotland Yard detective Mike Neville, 54, who runs the Super Recogniser International agency, said: “It’s a valuable addition if Madeleine McCann is still alive to try and find her.”

Simone first used her extraordinary abilities in 2018 when her sketches helped Indian police catch multiple child rapist and murderer Imran Ali.

Earlier this year, prosecutors probing Madeleine McCann’s disappearance said they were “100% convinced” that German paedo Christian Brueckner kidnapped her.

Prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters admitted the evidence against Brueckner, 44, is “circumstantial”.

He said they’ve no videos to prove Madeleine, who aged three went missing in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007, is dead.

They also have no idea how she died and no DNA linking the German to the crime. But Mr Wolters is convinced Brueckner, who is in jail in Germany, killed the British youngster.
