New trailer released for Netflix's Madeleine McCann documentary

Twelve years on, the topic is still the subject of a number of different conspiracy theories, and Netflix has just released a trailer for The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, which is a documentary based on the mystery surrounding the case. The entire eight-episode show will be available to watch March 15.

Madeleine vanished from her bedroom while on holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal with her family in May 2007 and the case remains unsolved nearly 12 years later.

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".

After news of the documentary broke, Gerry and Kate released a lengthy statement hitting out at the series.

People across the United Kingdom grieved the disappearance of the small girl after she vanished in May 2007.

The new film, The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, has been slammed by Gerry, 50, and Kate McCann, 51, who believe it could hinder ongoing efforts to locate their missing child - who would be turning 16 this year. The McCanns checked on their children periodically, and discovered Madeleine missing at 10pm.

Kate and Gerry were made persons of interest by the Portuguese police investigation but this was dropped when the probe was closed in 2008.

One expert claims that she might still be alive due to her "value" as a white middle class girl.

One of the people featured in the series is Jim Gamble, a top child protection detective who was part of the UK's first investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine. Journalists who covered the story, a man who was identified as a possible suspect, and friends and associates of the McCanns also spoke to filmmakers.

We are aware that Netflix are planning to screen a documentary in March 2019 about Madeleine's disappearance.

However, it won't have any statements or interviews by the McCann family due to their strong refusal to participate in the documentary.

"Consequently, our views and preferences are not reflected in the programme".
