Police have admitted they don’t have a shred of forensic evidence linking prime suspect Christian Brueckner to Madeleine McCann.

The German – currently in prison – was named this year as the chief suspect in the Brit girl’s 2007 disappearance.

Despite over 400 calls in response to an appeal for information about the convicted paedophile’s movements, none has provided a breakthrough.

And the prosecutor in charge of the case admitted a recent two-day search of Brueckner’s former home in Germany was “speculative”.

Brueckner’s lawyer revealed that an informant claiming Brueckner confessed to him was a human trafficker.

Investigator Mark Williams-Thomas yesterday tweeted: “Hype and promises by the Germans will come to nothing.’’

Prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters said: “We haven’t got the information we need to charge Christian B.”

Last month, Brueckner's lawyer Friedrich Fulscher dismissed all the claims against him, and blasted recent searches of an allotment Brueckner lived in as an "act of desperation".

Fulscher asked police to reveal the evidence they have, and has repeatedly stated that he believes there won't be a trial for Brueckner in relation to Maddie.

Speaking in early August he said: "Where is the evidence?

"Why has the prosecution not revealed it?

"There won’t be a trial for my client for Madeleine McCann. I am certain."

Fulscher added that if his client does go to trial for Madeleine's disappearance he would face the court "serenely and calmly . . . he has nothing to hide".
