A CRIME expert who has analysed the high profile case of missing child Madeleine McCann claims the three-year-old was not abducted.

Investigative Criminal Profiler Pat Brown told news.com.au that Scotland Yard bungled the investigation and slammed the crime fighting agency for "wasting time and money” on Madeleine's case.

"Madeleine is dead,” Ms Brown said.

"There's no point spending all of this money as nothing they do is going to make that child alive.”

While profiling the case, Ms Brown developed a theory about what happened to Madeleine.

"When I do a crime scene analysis it is a theory based on evidence to then be given to police and used to look for more proof and evidence suitable for prosecution,” she said.

"When I analysed (Madeleine's) case, it led me to believe evidence does not support an abduction.

"An abduction was extremely unlikely based on the amount of time, evidence at the scene, and every other shred of evidence there has ever been.”

Ms Brown said Madeleine most likely died an accidental death that was "covered up”.

"The evidence supports the theory of an accident occurring through neglect and possible medication,” she said.

"It's my belief the body was moved to a desolate location and will never be found.”
