A haunting new photograph of a little girl believed to be missing girl Madeleine McCann has been discovered.
The photograph is of a young girl believed to be Madeleine at the Praia Da Luz resort in Portugal just days before her disappearance - back in 2007.
And this new photo will form part of a shocking new Netflix documentary, The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, which outlines new theories about exactly happened to the three-year-old British girl, including one belief that she might still be alive.
In the picture, a young girl wearing a pink dress and white hat, thought to be Maddie McCann, can be seen playing with a giant multi-coloured parachute with other kids and a carer at the children’s holiday care club at the Portuguese holiday resort.
Maddie disappeared when she and her twin siblings were left alone in bed in their resort apartment as their parents had dinner at a nearby restaurant.
The couple came under intense scrutiny for leaving their kids alone, checking on them every half an hour during the evening. During one visit to the apartment, they discovered Maddie was missing from her bed while the twins slept peacefully nearby.
The high-profile case has never been solved despite years of investigations and crime profiling.
Senior child protection officer Jim Camble, who features in the documentary, believes Maddie could well be alive - and the crime will be solved soon.
“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,” he admitted.
Kate and Gerry McCann refused to take part in the documentary, saying it could “hinder” the police investigation to find their daughter.
“The production company told us that they were making the documentary and asked us to participate,” they said.
“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.
