A teaser video for Australia's Channel 7's Sunday Night programme suggests a significant new lead in the case has been unearthed.

Featuring a top criminologist, a forensic scientist and the former lead Portuguese investigator, it claims to deliver a “landmark TV event”.

The show, due to air on Sunday, claims it has discovered a fresh lead in the high-profile case.

And it says the lead could bring the search for the missing youngster - who vanished in Portugal in May 2007 - closer to an end.

It comes as the parents, from Rothley, Leicestershire, are bracing themselves for the 10th anniversary of Maddie's disappearance.

They cling onto a glimmer of hope that the little girl could still be alive.

Maddie, then just three years old, vanished from a holiday apartment in Portugal’s Praia da Luz on May 3, 2007.

She would now be aged 13, nearly 14. At the time of her disappearance, her parents were dining nearby with friends.

Earlier this week, a nanny who looked after Maddie told the Daily Mirror how Kate and Gerry were plunged into despair and panic when the ­horrifying truth she had vanished sank in .

The former childminder said she is still haunted by the image of Gerry desperately trying to find their missing daughter while she tried to comfort weeping Kate who cried: “They’ve taken her.”
