Madeleine McCann Netflix documentary controversially claims missing girl is 'still alive'

Madeleine McCann Netflix documentary controversially claims missing girl is 'still alive'”

Private investigator Julian Peribanez, who was hired by parents Kate and Gerry McCann, said traffickers usually tend to go for "lower class" children from poorer countries.

Netflix's new documentary series is set to set the record straight about that exactly happened to Madeleine on the night of her disappearance.

Their spokesperson told The Guardian: "Kate and Gerry didn't ask for it and don't see how it will help the search for Maddie on a practical level, so they chose not to engage".

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

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann will be available to stream on Netflix from 15th March.

Three-year-old Madeleine was kidnapped while she was vacationing with her family in Portugal in 2007 and 11-years, 10 months and 4 days later her case is still open and has been labeled as one of the most heavily reported investigations.

A source inside the production team added: "We would have welcomed the opportunity of working with the McCanns directly but they informed us they couldn't and wouldn't consider taking part while a police investigation is into their daughter's abduction is ongoing".

Portuguese police focussed on Madeleine's parents as suspects rather than an outside abductor, which United Kingdom investigators who joined the case later claim was a mistake.

Her disappearance sparked a large missing persons investigation and attracted huge media attention.

According to The Sun, the documentary will focus on the human trafficking explanation, claiming Madeleine was taken to be sold.

He said: "I absolutely believe that in my lifetime we will find out what has happened to Madeleine McCann".

An artists impression of what Madeleine McCann would look like today. 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.

Netflix commissioned the programme in 2017. And the service itself is displaying a "Season 1 coming March 15", but with no time confirmation, indicating that a NZ release will be today, possibly in line with the United Kingdom release.
