The prime suspect in the Madeleine McCann case is being investigated over three more sex crimes in Portugal.

Detectives searched the ­former home of Christian Brueckner and compared DNA found in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz from which Madeleine vanished in 2007.

But they do not have enough evidence to secure an arrest warrant.

A Portuguese newspaper said: “The searches revealed nothing. Nor did the DNA profiles.”

The extensive inquiries conducted by Portuguese police, however, may help solve other outstanding cases. They are probing German convicted paedophile Brueckner, 43, over a sex attack on an Irish woman in Portugal in 2004.

He is also suspected of ­sexually abusing a 10-year-old child on a beach in the Algarve in 2007, and of the sexual harassment of two youngsters in the Algarve three years ago.

German police are looking into matters and a source said: “There are ongoing investigations in other areas.’’
