The series will explore the disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine, who vanished from her bedroom while on holiday in Portugal with her family in May 2007 - a story that remains one of the world's biggest mysteries, nearly 12 years on.

"Madeleine's Fund", which Kate and Gerry set up to raise money for the investigation, has been supported by a number of celebrities including Philip Green, Simon Cowell, Coleen Rooney, J.K. Rowling, and Richard Branson.

A Netflix spokesperson said: "By blending new interviews with more than 40 contributors, 120 hour of interviews, archival news footage and reenactments, The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann goes beyond the headlines and takes a unique look at the facts of the case as well as its impact on media standards around the world".

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann drops on Netflix tomorrow, Friday March 15. The parents are said to have been checking on them every half-hour.

Her parents have refused to give up hope of finding their child alive. "Julian Peribanez, the private investigator hired by the McCanns, explained: "[Traffickers] usually go for lower-class kids from third world countries - that's the main supplier of these gangs.

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 value that Madeline had was really high", one person says. But despite a lot of theories and several suspects, Madeleine was never found, and no one was ever charged in relation to her disappearance.

The documentary is directed by Chris Smith, who is best known for directing "Fyre: The Greatest Party that Never Happened", which was released on Netflix earlier this year.

The 3-year-old girl, with a distinctive dark strip on the iris of her right, blue-green eye, vanished in 2007.

He said: "There's huge hope to be had with the advances in technology". Year on year other techniques, including facial recognition, are getting better. "We will not be making any further statements or giving interviews regarding this programme".
