A new Netflix documentary reveals how detectives showed locals an e-fit of a man without a nose, eyes or mouth in the week after the youngster vanished. 

The controversial show about Madeleine McCann, available on the streaming service today, promises viewers  a ‘detailed look’ at the disappearance of the three-year-old and the subsequent police investigation.

The second episode of The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann reveals how officers showed the featureless e-fit drawing to those living in Praia da Luz, Portugal,  in May, 2007.

Simon Russell, who owned an internet café in the resort town, said: ‘I smiled when they showed it to me. What else could you do?’ 

The youngster’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, have previously criticised the programme, saying it ‘could potentially hinder’ the search for their daughter.

Madeleine vanished from the resort of Praia da Luz in Portugal in May 2007, while on holiday with her family.

Netflix said the series had access to ‘never-before-heard testimonies from those at the heart of the story, including friends of the McCann family, investigators working the case and from those who became the subject of media speculation and rumour’.

Mr and Mrs McCann previously said in a statement: ‘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, it could potentially hinder it.

‘Consequently, our views and preferences are not reflected in the programme.’

Scotland Yard launched an investigation, Operation Grange, after a Portuguese inquiry failed to make any headway on Madeleine’s disappearance.

In November last year, a further £150,000 was granted to the investigation to allow it to continue until March 31.

Force bosses have been applying for funding from the Home Office every six months to continue the inquiry, which has cost about £11.75 million so far.
