Madeleine McCann: DNA test latest on woman claiming to be Madeleine McCann as Polish police give update

Julia Faustyna emerged on Instagram two weeks ago claiming she was Madeleine McCann

A DNA test with Gerry or Kate McCann looks increasingly unlikely for Polish woman Julia Faustyna who emerged on Instagram two weeks ago claiming she was their missing daughter Madeleine.

The 21-year-old has amassed over a million followers since making her claims which she accompanied with photographic comparisons of her features and those of Madeleine McCann who went missing in Portugal in 2007.

These included a mark on her right eye and a number of freckles and skin marks she says are similar to Maddie.

In addition, reflecting on her younger years, the Pole has concluded that her life hasn’t made any sense, leading her to conclude that she was a victim of abduction.

She captioned an Instagram post: “I don’t remember most of my childhood, but my earliest memory is very strong, and it’s about holidays in a hot place where there was a beach and white or very light [coloured] buildings with [apartments].”

Last week, a source close to the McCanns suggested they were willing to partake in a DNA test to test the online claims but that possibility has since gone cold.

Psychic Dr Fia Johansson, who has been representing Julia in the media, told 7NEWS in Australia that the young woman is definitely “not doing this for publicity”.

She went on to tell them that all she [Julia] wants is for her own mum and dad to do a DNA test with her. Her father has reportedly refused.

Johansson told 7NEWS they will now go to court seeking a DNA test order.
