Madeleine McCann has been missing for close to 12 years now.
Netflix has been pumping out some pretty good true crime documentaries about real-life abduction and murder cases that still remain a mystery. From Making a Murderer, The Ted Bundy Tapes, and Abducted in Plain Sight to the latest offering that is The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
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. The documentary blends interviews with more than 40 individuals who are journalists, friends, and investigators related to the case. However, parents of Madeleine, Kate or Gerry McCann, are not involved.
"We are aware that Netflix are planning to screen a documentary in March 2019 about Madeleine’s disappearance," they wrote on their website. "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, could potentially hinder it."
Watch the trailer below and catch the eight-part series on Netflix as of March 15th.
