Bringing together the input of more than 40 contributors and 120 hour of interviews, The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann features never-before-heard testimonies from those at the heart of the story - including friends of the McCann family, investigators working the case and those who became the subject of media speculation and rumour.

The parents of missing girl Madeleine McCann say a Netflix documentary about their daughter's case could "hinder the search".

The Disappearance of Madelaine McCann, a true crime doco in the same vein as Netflix hits Making a Murderer and Abducted in Plain Sight, is tipped to land in the United Kingdom on Friday, and claims to include testimony from more than 40 "experts" close to the 12-year-old case.

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'.

Maddie went missing on 12th May 2007 whilst on holiday with her family in Portugal.

After news of the documentary broke, Gerry and Kate released a lengthy statement hitting out at the series.

McCann disappeared on May 3, 2007, from the apartment where she was sleeping with her two-year-old twin siblings.

Kate and Gerry McCann had no involvement in the docmentary. And still to this day, the whereabouts of Madeleine remain unknown.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Gamble said: "There's huge hope to be had with the advances in technology". Year on year DNA is getting better. The McCanns declined to participate, they explained in a statement shared on the website FindMadeleine.com.

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".

The documentary comes out on Friday 15 March, so for all those true-crime fans, it will definitely be one to mark in your diaries. "Consequently, our views and preferences are not reflected in the program".

According to British newspaper The Guardian, the McCanns "urged those around them" not to give interviews to London's Pulse Films, which produced the show on behalf of Netflix.
