Madeleine McCann ‘is alive and was abducted by traffickers’, Netflix documentary claims

A top police officer has claimed that the mystery over the disappearance of Madeleine McCann will be solved in his life time.

Senior child protection officer Jim Camble made his claims during a Netflix documentary called The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, which is being released this week.

He said: ‘There’s huge hope to be had with the advances in technology. Year on year DNA is getting better. Year on year other techniques, including facial recognition, are getting better.

‘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.’

It has been suggested that Maddie is still alive and was taken by traffickers from her holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in 2007 because of her financial value as a ‘middle-class British girl’.

She was kidnapped when she was just three years old while her parents had dinner with friends at a restaurant nearby.

They hired private investigator Julian Peribanez who said traffickers normally go for ‘lower class’ children from poorer countries.

He said: ‘That’s the main supplier of these gangs. The value that Madeleine had was really high because if they took her it’s because they were going to get a lot of money.’

Netflix is set to run the documentary from tomorrow.

They must now investigate any potential offences committed by the vigilantes, as well as the people they accuse of trying to groom children. The new rule is included in internal guidance for detectives which was handed out last year and obtained by The Times.But are they a necessary evil?

Kate and Gerry McCann criticised Netflix and said they did not want to take part in the documentary, which features ‘thorn in our sides’ Goncalo Amaral, a former police chief who said Maddie is dead and her parents faked her kidnap.

They said: ‘The production company told us that they were making the documentary and asked us to participate. 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 programme. We will not be making any further statements or giving interviews regarding this programme.’

They spoke out after the Home Office confirmed it was considering a new request for extra funding from Scotland Yard to continue the hunt for Maddie – giving them hope there is ‘still work left to be done.’
