A top child protection cop insists the 12-year mystery of missing Madeleine McCann will be solved.

Netflix's eagerly anticipated documentary The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann will hit the online streaming service tomorrow, and the trailer looks harrowing.

The doc series, which was commissioned in 2017, blends interviews with more than 40 contributors, 120 hours of interviews, archival news footage and reenactments.

It said: "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".

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Gamble said: "There's huge hope to be had with the advances in technology".

The Portuguese police have been accused of bungling the case by fixating on Madeleine's parents as potential kidnappers or killers instead of conducting a thorough investigation. Year on year DNA is getting better.


Madeleine's disappearance from her family's vacation apartment, while her parents were out having dinner nearby, was manna to Britain's aggressive and often ruthless tabloid press, which sent reporters to hound the McCanns and track the investigation.

"And as we use that technology to revisit and review that which we captured in the past, there's every likelihood that something we already know will slip into position".

However, it won't have any statements or interviews by the McCann family due to their strong refusal to participate in the documentary.

Their spokesperson told The Guardian: "Kate and Gerry didn't ask for it and don't see how it will help the search for Maddie on a practical level, so they chose not to engage".

"I've done thousands of cases, but with the Madeleine case, I've seen the worst things a human being can see", one investigator says in the trailer. They also confirmed, "Our views and preferences are not reflected in the programme".
