When many people might be sceptical about the clairvoyant's claims, it seems Hans Christian Wolters, the German prosecutor investigating Madeleine's disappearance, is not.
He confirmed into the Sunday People his officers have previously used clairvoyants and, sometimes, received specific information.
Mr Schneider clarified he believes the child - who went missing May 2007 - is buried in a forest six miles from the Portuguese vacation resort where she went missing in Praia da Luz on the Algarve.
Former TV reporter Mr Schneider told that the Mirror:"I don't give out such advice lightly and without constantly questioning myself since I am very well aware of the duty of what I do."
He was also right with his place as it came to discovering the bodies of killed bunch Peter Neumair, 63, and Laura Perselli, 68, who went missing from their home in Bolzano in Italy in January.
When it came to making contact with German investigators, Schneider contacted the BKA which is the German equivalent of the FBI.
They reportedly responded telling him"Your data will be appropriately incorporated into our job."
German prosecutors have been coping with the case since a man called Christian Brueckner became the prime defendant in the case. He's presently serving a seven-year sentence for rape.
Talking about the BKA, Mr Schneider said:"I am happy that the BKA appear to be taking me seriously.
