(CNN) — Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann are hunting a man who assaulted five other young British girls on holiday in Portugal, London’s Metropolitan Police said Wednesday.
The 3-year-old girl disappeared in 2007 while on vacation with her family in the Portuguese resort town of Praia da Luz.
Officers are investigating 12 potentially linked crimes in holiday resorts near where the toddler vanished.
