Madeleine McCann search extended, given $150K

Ten years on from her disappearance, and the search effort has been granted a further sum of money to find Maddie.

Police looking into the disappearance of British youngster Madeleine McCann have been given further funds and time to do so.
The Home Office in the UK has granted officers a further $150,000 to cover operational costs, as the team known as Operation Grange continue to hunt for the girl.
In one of the most famous missing children's cases in the world, three-year-old Madeleine disappeared from her family's hotel room in Praia da Luz in Portugal.
Now ten years on from the day in May 2007, parents Kate and Gerry McCann have vowed never to give up looking for their long lost daughter.
Over the course of the search for Madeleine, millions of pounds have been spent on lines of investigation. And despite reports last year suggesting the hunt was over, Operation Grange has been extended for a further six months until September 2017.
A spokesperson for the British Home Office said: "As with all applications, the resources required are reviewed regularly and careful consideration is given before any new funding is allocated."
The McCann's and the Met Police have received plenty of backlash for the decision, with many believing too much money has been spent on one missing child case.
