An American family has contacted Julia Wendell, 21, who thinks she could be the missing British girl, Madeleine McCann as they now believe she could be their missing daughter. Julia Wendell made headlines after claiming she believes she may be Madeleine McCann, who was nearly 4 years old when she was last seen on a family holiday in Portugal on May, 3, 2007.

According to LBC "She was taken to California by private detective Dr Fia Johansson, after receiving death threats in her native Poland. Dr Johansson claims to have evidence that shows "Julia was definitely trafficked to Poland." "We do not want to reveal the name of the girl or her family because things are going back and forth, and it’s a very emotional time for everyone," the investigator told RadarOnline.

"I feel we should wait until we get the DNA test because we want to know more about Julia’s background. "Right now, there are a lot of families with missing children, similar to Julia’s age, that are going to be emailing us because they would love to know where their missing loved ones are. "Julia says she believes she could be Madeleine because she says she was sexually abused by a man she believes was a suspect in the Madeleine McCann case." Taken from the LBC website.

She also points out she has a rare eye condition same as Madeleine's "a marking in her eye, similar to Madeleine's coloboma which means her pupil is a different shape and has moles in similar positions." Julia Wendell's family who raised her in Poland have denied all her claims from the beginning.
