An Australian TV show claims to have made a 'breakthrough' in the search for missing Madeleine McCann.

Channel 7’s Sunday Night show has released a teaser clip of this weekend's programme in which it promises to be a "landmark television event".

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.

A post on the channel's Facebook says: "The disappearance of Madeleine McCann has continued to captivate the world for nearly ten years. 

"Maddie was only three years old when she vanished from her family's holiday apartment in Portugal.

"The police search that followed became the largest in Portugal's history - but no trace of the missing toddler was ever found.

"Now, new developments in the case could finally reveal the truth about what happened to little Maddie."

The Gazette:

A spokesman for the McCann's last night called on the TV show to handover any new information they have to polince in the UK.

He said: "If the Australian TV show contains any credible, fresh lines of inquiry they should, of course, have been given immediately to the police."

Kate and Gerry McCann are preparing to mark the 10th anniversary of their daughter's disappearance.

Madeleine would now be 13-years-old.
