The parents of a British girl whose disappearance sparked a four-month international search were declared suspects by Portuguese police Friday, their lawyer said. Kate McCann was named a suspect Friday morning when she went to a police station in southern Portugal for her second straight day of interrogation, lawyer Carlos Pinto Abreu said. Her husband Gerry, who later spent more than seven hours at the same police station, was also declared a suspect, Pinto Abreu told reporters. "They have not been charged, and the investigation continues," he said without elaborating. Their 4-year-old daughter Madeleine vanished from their hotel room in southern Portugal on May 3. The parents have strenuously professed their innocence. Family friends said Kate McCann told them she had been named a formal suspect and was offered a deal if she confessed.
