Madeleine McCann is a name that is forever engraved in our minds for the simple fact that her strange disappearance has shaken us.
In case you don’t remember, Madeleine McCann disappeared from her bed in a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on the evening of 3 May 2007, at the age of 3.
Since that time, there has been so much speculation on what happened to her and clues have left authorities scratching their heads and unsure where to look for her.
While some believe she is presumed dead, others believe she was simply kidnapped and raised by someone and that is where this story sort of picks up…
Recently, a polish woman named Julia Faustyna has come forward saying she believes she may be Madeleine McCann.
In a series of social media posts, she supplied many reasons why she believed she could be Madeleine including posting photos of herself and Madeleine McCann side by side to highlight similarities, including rare eye condition.
She even posted on Instagram under the profile iammadelinemccann and her bio says that the parents of Madeleine have agreed to a DNA test.
There’s even photos of Julia comparing herself to Kate McCann (Madeleine’s mom) and dad.
Many believe that she is NOT Madeleine McCann but others cannot shake the similarities in appearance.
Julia also has an explanation for her age difference. Madeleine would be 19 years old now while Julia is 21 but she says, she doesn’t believe that’s her actual age.
Although, the McCann family has not commented publicly on Julia’s claims, a spokesperson for the family said they have agreed to a DNA test that would definitively prove if Julia is their missing daughter.
So, for now, we just have to wait and watch as this unfolds. I cannot even imagine the heartbreak and stress the family is going through right now.
