Controversial Documentary on British Child’s Disappearance to Debut on Netflix on Friday

A spokesperson for Netflix said: "By blending new interviews with more than 40 contributors, 120 hour of interviews, archival news footage and reenactments, The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann goes beyond the headlines and takes a unique look at the facts of the case as well as its impact on media standards around the world".

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann will go through the ordeal from the start, will delve into the suspects and also, her parents.

Madeleine vanished from the resort of Praia da Luz in Portugal in May 2007, while on holiday with her family.

Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry McCann have refused to take part in the series.

"Madeleine's Fund", which Kate and Gerry set up to raise money for the investigation, has been supported by a number of celebrities including Philip Green, Simon Cowell, Coleen Rooney, J.K. Rowling, and Richard Branson.

"There's huge hope to be had with the advances in technology".

This was based on evidence gathered by the UK's top child protection officer on the UK's first investigation into the disappearance, Jim Gamble, and head of the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children in the US Ernie Allen, who created an image of Madeleine aged up to how she would look at 15.

"And as we use that technology to revisit and review that which we captured in the past, there's every likelihood that something we already know will slip into position".

In a statement about the docu-series, the McCanns said: "We are aware that Netflix are planning to screen a documentary in March 2019 about Madeleine's disappearance".

Mr and Mrs McCann previously said in a statement: "The production company told us that they were making the documentary and asked us to participate".

According to British newspaper The Guardian, the McCanns "urged those around them" not to give interviews to London's Pulse Films, which produced the show on behalf of Netflix.

Madeleine McCann is still alive and being held captive by child traffickers claims a controversial new Netflix documentary.
