21 year-old Julia Wendell, the Polish woman who believes she is Madeleine McCann, has made a huge revelation.
She has recently submitted DNA samples that she claims could prove whether she is the long time missing girl – However, regardless of the result, she says she will not be returning to the family she grew up with.
During her recent appearance on the chat show Dr Phil, Wendell made her thoughts on her parents very clear, as she explained her reasoning for believing she is Madeleine McCann.
She initially hit the headlines after claiming to be Madeleine on social media, drawing attention to their physical similarities and urging for a DNA test to take place.
Wendell claimed to have similar freckles and beauty marks, as well as sharing the same distinct mark on her eye as Madeleine. She also drew attention to featured that she believes she shares with Madeleine’s parents, Gerry and Kate McCann.
In addition to this, Wendell explained to not remember most of her childhood, and claimed that a lot of details from it don’t add up.
As described on Dr Phil, Wendell explained some of her earliest memories, which even host, Dr Phil, said is ”eerily similar to the place where Madeleine McCann was last seen alive”.
She described it as: “It was the beach and water, like sea or ocean, and there were turtles and children…”
Phil also questioned Wendell as to why she isn’t moving forward in the investigation with Scotland Yard, who would be able to confirm if her DNA matches McCann.
However, she explained that she has tried to contact police, yet has been turned away.
She is now still waiting the results of her recent independent DNA test.
The 21-year-old has submitted samples for three different forensic examinations that will outline her DNA sequence, along with a 23andMe-style genetic test to establish her ancestry, private investigator Dr. Fia Johansson told RadarOnline.com.
“If the results come back that she’s British or from that area then we are going to continue our investigation into Madeleine McCann and communicate with the detectives in Portugal,” said Dr. Johansson, who relocated Wendell from Poland to a safe house in the United States after a series of death threats.
“We have a lot of evidence right now that shows Julia was definitely trafficked to Poland from another country by an international sex trafficking group.”
However, regardless of the result, she won’t be retuning to life with the family she grew up with.
”I think that mothers should not do these things to their children,” she told Dr. Phil.
“If she is my mother, I don’t want to have contact with her that’s all, but I believe she isn’t my mother.”
