Netflix confirms Madeleine McCann documentary date

Mr and Mrs McCann previously said in a statement: "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", the McCanns wrote in a statement published by the BBC.

"Consequently, our views and preferences are not reflected in the programme". The documentary comes out on Friday 15 March, so for all those true-crime fans, it will definitely be one to mark in your diaries.

On May 3, 2007, 3-year-old Madeleine McCann vanished from her bed in a room at Praia da Luz, a resort in Portugal.

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

Her disappearance has continued to make headlines for over a decade and is still of huge interest to the public. This new docu-series "blends interviews with more than 40 contributors, 120 hours of interviews, archival news footage and reenactments" to delve into the still-mysterious, mind-boggling case.

It sets up the documentary as a must watch for anyone who's followed the investigation.

The trailer also features Robert Murat a British man who became a suspect early on in the case.

"On the Internet you can go into those dark places and say, 'This is who I am and this is what I do, ' and you're made to feel better about who you are because there's so many others".

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.

It also features interviews with Goncalo Amaral, the retired Portuguese police chief who is certain that Gerry and Kate killed their daughter then staged a kidnapping to cover it up.

The words: "The world's most famous missing child case, a mystery in search of answers". Although there has been a great deal of support for the family and the "Tapas Seven" (the nickname for the group dining away from their children on the night), there have been a great deal of conspiracy theories surrounding her disappearance - with some theorists speculating that the parents had something to do with what happened to their daughter.
