The young woman who has made headlines across the world for claiming to be missing British child Madeleine McCann "finally has a family who cares".

Julia Wendell, 21, is currently living in a safehouse in the US after receiving a number of death threats and having been whisked out of her home country.

She previously amassed over 1million Instagram followers after posting "evidence" to suggest she might be missing Madeleine, who vanished in 2007 aged just three during a family holiday to Praia da Luz, Portugal.

Dr Fia Johansson, a private detective and self-professed medium who is probing Julia's claims, is the one looking after Julia and has shared frequent updates on her Instagram.

And today, March 14, Johansson said that Julia told her that she feels like now is "the first time she has a family that cares".

"She said this is the first time she feels she has a family that cares. My kids and my dogs love her angelic personality," she wrote on Instagram alongside an image of Julia.

Dr Johansson had earlier shared pictures of Julia enjoying the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Universal Studios, and wrote that the young woman thinks people in the US are "lovely and welcoming".

She previously said Julia's her mum and dad are refusing to take a DNA test.

Julia's family in Poland have denied her claims. They have also apparently blocked her phone number.

Dr Johansson and her team have been in Wroclaw (the city Julia supposedly grew up in) where she said they found no hospital records for Julia relating to the first five years of her life.

The investigator is confident Julia is not who her family would have you believe.

She told RadarOnline: "We are still conducting an investigation but Julia is definitely not the biological daughter of her parents in Poland.

"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."
