A DANGEROUS paedophile has been found hiding among British tourists in the Costa Del Sol in an echo of Madeleine McCann suspect Christian B.
The unnamed Belgian drifter was holed up inside his car in Velez-Malaga after escaping from a mental institution where he had been sent for sexually assaulting two girls aged 11 and 12.
On July 30 last year the pervert, who also has a conviction for sexualy assaulting a woman, escaped from the Ankerstraat General Psychiatric Hospital in Belgium.
He had been receiving treatment for sexual disorders when he fled.
But police struggled to find him because of his transient lifestyle which mirrors that of Christian B, who was also a wanted man who headed to resorts full of holidaying families and their children.
And like the Madeleine suspect, it turned out he lived in his vehicle.
When cops swooped on the predator they found his belongings included a sleeping bag, clothes and food.
The suspect, who is described as of "great importance to the Belgian Prosecutor's Office", was caught after a police surveillance unit.
They had staked out his regular pit stops, including a petrol station, restaurant and former partner and finally tracked him to the resort in Spain.
It emerged last week that Christian B may have carried out more rapes in the Algarve, according to German cops.
Police in Germany have now urged their Portuguese counterparts to investigate other "rapes and sexual abuse" which they believe he may have carried out.
The chief prosecutor in the Madeleine McCann probe confirmed the move as he gave more details of a sex offence Christian B is now being linked to.
He spoke of a sex offence committed against a 10-year-old on an Algarve beach just a month before Madeleine vanished.
