What happened to Madeleine McCann and what conspiracy theories are there about her disappearance?

TEN years ago, little Madeleine McCann disappeared sparking one of the largest missing person hunts in history.

The then three-year-old has never been seen since, vanishing from the holiday apartments in Portugal where she had been staying with her siblings and their parents and Kate and Gerry in May 2007.

The Madeleine McCann industry: How a three-year-old’s disappearance became a troubling national obsession

You can read it on the official Find Madeleine website: the statement of Kate and Gerry McCann. 

Madeleine, our Madeleine,” write the parents of the missing girl. “Ten years … a horrible marker of time, stolen time.”

You can watch their “heartbreaking ” interview with the BBC’s Fiona Bruce, marking the tenth anniversary of three-year-old Madeleine’s disappearance from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on 3 May 2007.

Or you can consider the words of Kate and Gerry’s web statement: “We are bracing ourselves for … the rehashing of old ‘stories’, misinformation, half-truths and downright lies which will be doing the rounds in the newspapers, social media and ‘special edition’ TV programmes.

“[We] truly hope that those reporting on the ‘story’ over the next couple of weeks will have a conscience.”

Maddie McCann criminal profiler claims hatchet job and threatens lawsuit against Seven West

The US criminal profiler featured on Channel 7’s Madeleine McCann documentary is threatening legal action to sue journalist Rahni Sadler and Seven West Media.

Crime expert Pat Brown said she was “absolutely appalled” at how the Sunday Night show was edited to produce a one-sided pro-McCann view, and claimed she had been set up to be humiliated by Sadler.

A former Scotland Yard detective who also featured in the documentary told Nine.com.au his analysis of Maddie’s disappearance had been heavily distorted and that he would never work with Seven again.

The episode promised “major new developments”, but ultimately failed to deliver on the much-hyped bombshell lead that would break the almost decade-long cold case open.

Washington DC-based Brown told Nine.com.au that Sadler interviewed her exhaustively for an hour but only used fractional snippets that could ultimately make her a target for legal action from the McCanns.

Film crew to reveal ‘major breakthrough’ in Madeleine McCann case

Documentary makers claim to have made a “major breakthrough” in the Madeleine McCann case.

Channel 7’s Sunday Night in Australia said that they have new evidence in the case – and it will be revealed in their programme, which will air this weekend.

The video claims the show has a new line of inquiry which could bring investigators closer to solving the mystery of the youngster’s disappearance.

The trailer does feature comment from Pat Brown, a US-based criminal profiler and television commentator whose book casting doubt on the McCann’s account of the disappearance of their three-year-old daughter was published six years ago, in 2011.

Channel 7 said the documentary will be a “landmark television event”.

However, more details about the “major breakthrough” are being kept under wraps until the show airs in Australia on Sunday night, mere weeks before the ten-year anniversary of Maddie’s disappearance.
