Three-year-old Madeleine vanished from an apartment in Praia da Luz, a holiday resort in the Algarve region of Portugal. This was on May 3rd, 2007.
Since then, the case has been in the media spotlight and attracted broad controversy. She remains missing to this day.

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann: Merits
For those who know little about the case, it will prove helpful.
The series blends recent, original interviews and archive footage. This extends to both news footage and publically shot.
Kate and Gerry McCann refused involvement with the documentary. However, the episodes contain archive footage of them. It also employs dialogue from previously orchestrated interviews.
How controversial has it been?
The Guardian’s Lucy Mangan labelled the series “…creatively and morally bankrupt.”
Similarly, The Telegraph’s Ed Power wrote that it was “bloated” and “manipulative”.
More reviews continue to come in for the series. As expected, it’s proving overwhelmingly divisive.
