COPY-Police find nothing in search for missing girl in Portugal

LISBON, Portugal (AP) - A search by police in southern Portugal for a missing 4-year-old British girl has turned up nothing.

Police say officers had sealed off the area after receiving an anonymous tip Madeleine McCann might be buried there. Police with sniffer dogs left the area after several hours.

The site is about nine miles from the hotel where the girl vanished while on vacation with her family. Earlier this week, a Dutch newspaper said it had given police an anonymous letter it received with a map of the area.

Madeleine disappeared on May third from the hotel, where her parents left her and her 2-year-old twin siblings alone in the room while they dined at a nearby restaurant.
