The sad and mysterious disappearance of Madeleine McCann ten years ago gripped the nation.


The little girl disappeared from a holiday apartment in the Praia da Luz resort in Portugal in May 2007 and despite a huge investigation by both Scotland Yard and Portuguese police, no trace of Madeleine has ever been found.


Now it’s been revealed that streaming service Netflix will air an eight-part true crime documentary about Maddie’s disappearance.


The series will feature interviews with key figures and investigators, according to The Metro.


It is not known whether Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, will take part in the documentary.



As of yet, the release date for the series has not been confirmed.


Netflix has become renowned for its gritty true crime series such as Making a Murderer which proved to be a sensational hit for the streaming service.


Programmes about murdered child pageant star JonBenet Ramsey and Amanda Knox, who was convicted of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher but was later acquitted have also had high ratings.


Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine have requested for extra funding to continue their search.


More than £11m has already been pumped into Operation Grange by the Metropolitan Police but funds run out at the end of this month, according to the BBC.


The Home Office has said their request will be considered.



Earlier this year, Madeleine’s parents revealed their anguish at being trolled online.


The couple revealed that they have been trying to protect both themselves and their 12-year-old twins, Sean and Amelie, from the abuse.


Kate described the messages they have received as “shocking, striking and quite hard to get your head around”.


Tired of receiving cruel messages and being taunted by trolls, the McCanns have appealed to their supporters not to post anything which might encourage the trolls.


According to The Mail Online, Kate and Gerry are backing the new “Rules of the Road” campaign, which promotes positive, helpful comments and discourages trolling.



The rules on their campaign page read as follows: “Do not use obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy or excessively violent language.


“Do not harass, insult, taunt, provoke, demean or personally attack other people on the page. Be friendly, even if others are not.


"Do not ask questions about the investigation.


“We are not a debate page, nor a place to analyse the investigation. This is a support and information page for Madeleine's family and the Official Find Madeleine Campaign”.
