Polish police and even her relatives are questioning the words of Julia, the 21-year-old woman who has been claiming for several days that she could be Maddie McCann, who disappeared in Portugal in 2007.

“It is obvious that Julia is not Maddie”. The relatives of the young Polish woman who has been claiming for several days on social networks to be Maddie McCann, a girl who disappeared in Portugal in May 2007, have reacted with a statement. While the young woman points out that her family has always been very vague and evasive about her childhood, the entourage denies this: “We have memories, we have photos” and a birth certificate has even been produced.

Julia’s revelations, which she has published on her Instagram page, have caused a sensation and reopened the debate on one of the most intriguing police cases in Europe in recent years. In an attempt to explain the behaviour of the young woman asking for a DNA test, her relatives, “devastated by the situation”, speak of psychiatric disorders and “lies”: “She left home, refuses treatment and does not take her medication regularly”.

“This does not correspond”

Officially, the Polish police also commented on the case, stating that “the investigations carried out at this stage contradict the version given by this young woman. The investigation is still ongoing, but we can already rule out that this version is true,” reports Gazeta.pl. “It is not true,” said the private investigator working for Maddie’s family, quoted by El Independiente.

Recall that Maddie McCann, a British girl then aged three, disappeared on 3 May 2007 in Praia da Luz in the Algarve, Portugal, where her family was on holiday. The Instagram page created by Julia, @iammadeleinemccan, is now followed by more than a million people.
