A possible reference to missing five year-old Madeleine McCann has been found towards the end of the new Halo 3 Campaign Experience trailer, released on Bungie.net yesterday afternoon.

About 36 seconds into the trailer a message flashes on screen for only three frames that reads: 'MADDIE, WHERE ARE YOU?'

At this time it is unclear what the message refers to. Current online speculation suggests it may well be a misguided reference to Madeleine McCann, or in fact a reference to an in-game character due to appear in the new Halo 3 campaign.

Halo developer Bungie is yet to comment on the matter.
