Julia Wandelt – who believed she's Madeleine McCann – to take another DNA test after first showed she isn't missing girl | The Sun

THE girl who believes she is Madeleine McCann plans to do another DNA test after the first revealed she was not the missing girl.

Julia Wandelt, who also goes by the surnames Wendell and Faustyna,  claimed on social media in recent weeks that she was missing Maddie.

But DNA test results revealed earlier this month that the 21-year-old is not the youngster, who vanished from her family's Portuguese holiday flat in 2007.

Julia claimed she had similar facial features, suffered an abusive childhood and had started to question her parentage.

The Polish woman also said she couldn't remember the early parts of her childhood and claimed she had no birth certificate.

Julia has now taken to Instagram saying she wants to do another test.

The 21-year-old, whose DNA test said she was of Polish heritage, claimed she was doing this for herself – and didn't feel she had to explain it to anyone.

However, she said she would keep people updated with the results.

Her case was picked up by private detective Dr Fia Johansson who flew Julia from Poland to Los Angeles after she started receiving threats and vile messages from online haters.

Dr Johansson arranged for Julia to give samples in the US for detailed DNA tests – including a DNA test similar to a 23andMe test.

However, her DNA was not compared to the McCanns'.

In the hours after Julia got back her results she was on a plane back home, with Dr Johansson releasing a statement on her behalf.

In it she claimed there Julia faced "nagging questions".

She then told The Sun that the 21-year-old did not believe the results, and how she was struggling with the findings.
