Netflix documentary claims Madeleine McCann 'is alive and was abducted by traffickers'

New Netflix documentary series "The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann", about a missing girl whose case has sparked fevered speculation in Britain for more than a decade, is set to drop on the streaming platform Friday.

Madeleine McCann disappeared from her hotel room in Praia de Luz, in Portugal in 2007, while her parents were having dinner nearby.

Gerry and Kate McCann have never given up hope of seeing missing Madeleine again.

The documentary also claims Madeleine is likely to have been kept alive by child traffickers because, as a middle-class British girl, she would be more financially valuable.

One of the people interviewed for the new docs-series, which will launch on Netflix tomorrow and took two years to make, is private investigator Julian Peribanez, who believes she was snatched to order by a child trafficking gang.

He said: "That's the main supplier of these gangs".

"There's huge hope to be had with the advances in technology".

This documentary has been so highly anticipated and there has been a lot of controversy surrounding it.

The child's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, have previously criticised the programme, saying it "could potentially hinder" the ongoing investigation into their daughter's disappearance. Year on year other techniques, including facial recognition, are getting better.

But it received no input from the McCann family, who said last week in a strongly worded statement that they knew the series was being made and were asked by Pulse Films to participate, but that they did not want to take part.

"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".

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