Netflix Documentary Claims Madeleine McCann Still Alive

1 min read

Madeleine has been missing for 12 years.

Everyone knows the name Madeleine McCann.

The three-year-old disappeared almost 12 years ago from a holiday in Portugal and has made headlines ever since.

We've seen articles, books, podcasts and more about the young Brit's disappearance and now, a Netflix documentary will join the ranks.

The Sun report that the documentary, to stream from Friday 15 March, will claim Madeleine was kidnapped and likely kept alive by child traffickers due to her value as a “middle-class British girl.”

According to Netflix, The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann "takes [a] detailed look of the disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine McCann who vanished from the seaside resort of Praia de Luz in Portugal, while on holiday with her family."

"It was a disappearance that reverberated around the world as the Portuguese police together with Scotland Yard mobilised a major investigation which would go on to become the most high-profile missing child case in British history."

More than 40 people have been interviewed for the documentary including key figures who worked on the investigation and key persons of interest.

Not present however, are Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry McCann who have released the below statement:

"We are aware that Netflix are planning to screen a documentary in March 2019 about Madeleine’s disappearance. The production company told us that they were making the documentary and asked us to participate. We did not see – and still do not see – how this programme will help the search for Madeleine and, particularly given there is an active police investigation, it could potentially hinder it.

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