Woman claiming to be Madeleine McCann ‘has taken DNA test’ to now see if she is Livia Schepp

“Julia is very open to the idea that she may be Livia Schepp and we are investigating this possibility"

The woman who claims she may be Madeleine McCann has reportedly taken a DNA test in order to find out whether she could be another missing child.

Julia Wendell appeared on Instagram in recent weeks, presenting what she believed to be evidence that she was Madeleine, and went as far as to say she does not believe her parents are biologically related to her.

After documenting body markings and the rare coloboma in her eye – which looked identical to the kidnapped three-year-old – the young woman is now suggesting she could be another missing child, Livia Schepp, after efforts to contact the McCanns failed.

Her latest claims come after thousands of people suggested that Julia is similar to another missing child named Livia, a Swiss girl who disappeared at the age of six.

Livia Schepp has been missing since January 30, 2011, and was taken along with her twin sister, Alessia, from the suburb of Saint-Sulpice in the city of Lausanne in Switzerland.

Dr Fia Johansson, a private detective and psychic who is investigating Julia’s claims, says the young woman won’t rule out that she may indeed be another missing child and they are hoping to carry out a DNA test with the Schepp family.

“Julia is very open to the idea that she may be Livia Schepp and we are investigating this possibility,” Dr Johansson told The Sun.

“I’ve spoken to her about this and she is open to the fact she could be any missing child out there – not just Madeleine. Julia just wants to know the truth about who she is.

“One of the reasons she made the connection to Madeleine is because one of the suspects in Madeleine’s case looks very much like a man who she says abused her as a child.

“But the same man could be connected to Madeleine and other missing children – this is how predators and traffickers work.

“Julia has taken a DNA test and we are investigating if it’s possible to check her DNA with that of missing Livia.

“We are investigating all possibilities at this stage.”

This comes just days after Polish Officials shot down Julia’s case after her family published a statement accusing the young woman of allegedly suffering from psychiatric issues.

Pawel Noga of the Provincial Police Headquarters in the western city of Wroclaw said investigators have “ruled out” Wendell’s claim after meeting with her biological family.

Mr. Noga spoke to the Polish news outlet, Gazeta, and revealed that Wendell’s relatives had shown authorities a birth certificate and photos in a desperate bid to bring an end to the media storm.

Although there were mentions of a potential plan for a DNA test to be carried out with Wendell and the McCanns, they were abruptly thrown out after her claim began to unravel following widespread scrutiny online.
