In 2007, three-year-old Madeleine McCann disappeared from her hotel room while on holiday in Portugal’s Praia de Luz with her parents and two siblings.
The disappearance of Madeleine McCann will be the subject of an eight-part true crime documentary series to be broadcast on Netflix in the near future.
In April, police said while they were still following critical lines of inquiry there was a chance they might never solve the case.
In the 10 years since she vanished, the media has suggested a host of explanations for her disappearance, ranging from a burglary gone wrong to abduction by slave traders.
The parents of missing Madeleine McCann have been offered fresh hope after police asked for more funds to keep the investigation alive. The disappearance amassed huge global interest across the world, and it is little surprise that Netflix has chose to try and tap into this audience. It sparked one of the most heavily reported missing-person cases in modern history, becoming a national obsession and still regularly hitting headlines when any new developments come to light.
No release date has yet been announced for the documentary series on Netflix.
Making A Murderer, which followed the cases of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, became a worldwide sensation upon its release in 2015, with the renewed interest in the case leading to Brendan’s imminet release.
Another of Netflix’s documentaries, “The Keepers“, proved so convincing that it led to the buried body of a prime suspect being exhumed for further analysis.
There has been no confirmation about when the documentary will air, but it is thought to be within the next year.
