The question of what happened to Madeleine McCann remains unanswered, 10 years after her she first went missing.
A new eight-part documentary from Netflix will delve into the mystery of the three-year-old’s disappearance as part of its true crime series. It will include interviews with key personalities and investigators from the case.
What happened to Madeline McCann?
Madeline disappeared from her hotel room while on holiday in Portugal back in 2007. It is one of the most heavily reported missing-person cases in modern history.
Her case quickly became a national and global obsession.
Despite several reported sightings and potential suspects, what happened to Madeline largely remains a mystery. The Netflix series is currently untitled but it will attempt to tell the story of her disappearance.
Kate and Gerry McCann continue to campaign for investigations into the disappearance of their toddler, but they declined to be involved in the Netflix documentary because the Metropolitan Police’s investigation is still active.

Scotland Yard have already spent more than £11 million on the investigation but asked for more funds last week.
Netflix is not afraid to take on controversial true crime cases. Last year it released a one-part documentary which looked into the Amanda Knox case, including interviews from Knox herself.

The series Making a Murderer also proved very popular. It tracked the conviction of Steven Avery and Brendad Dassey for the murder of Teresa Halbach. Another series of the same vain, The Keepers attempts to solve the murder of nun Cathy Cesnik which occurred in the 1960s.
These true crime documentaries sparked a lot of discussion and several arm chair detectives who uncovered real results.
It is possible this new series will do the same. Will you be tuning in?
