THE woman who claims she may be Madeleine McCann has taken a DNA test and is trying to check whether she could be another missing child.
Julia Wandelt, 21, from Poland, went viral after suggesting that she may be missing Maddie, who disappeared while on holiday in 2007.
She believes she may be Madeleine, who went missing at age three, because they share similar facial features and she had an abusive childhood which she remembers very little of.
However online sleuths have claimed that Julia looks more like another missing child named Livia Schepp, a Swiss girl who disappeared in 2011 with her twin Alessia, aged six.
Now, Dr Fia Johansson, a private detective and psychic who is investigating Julia's claims says Julia is open to the idea she may indeed be another missing child and they are hoping to carry out a DNA test with her family.
Dr Johansson told The Sun: "Julia is very open to the idea that she may be Livia Schepp and we are investigating this possibility.

"I've spoken to her about this and she is open to the fact she could be any missing child out there -not just Madeleine. Julia just wants to know the truth about who she is.
"One of the reasons she made the connection to Madeleine is because one of the suspects in Madeleine's case looks very much like a man who she says abused her as a child.
"But the same man could be connected to Madeleine and other missing children – this is how predators and traffickers work.
"Julia has taken a DNA test and we are investigating if it's possible to check her DNA with that of missing Livia.

"We are investigating all possibilities at this stage."
Julia has been sharing her story on social media where she claims she was sexually abused by a German paedophile, who was a suspect in the Madeleine's case.
She also points out she has moles in similar positions to Madeleine and a marking in her eye, similar to Madeleine's coloboma, which means her pupil is a different shape.
Julia's family in Poland spoke out last week to deny Julia's claims saying they're "devastated".
Polish missing persons organisation Missing Years Ago have released a statement from the family on Facebook.
It read: "For us as a family it is obvious that Julia is our daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin and step niece. We have memories, we have pictures.
"Julia also has these photos, because she took them from the family home with the birth certificate, as well as numerous hospital discharges.
"We always tried to understand all situations that happened with Julia. Numerous therapies, medicines, psychologists and psychiatrists – Julia had it all guaranteed. She wasn't left alone.
"Threats to our address from Julia, her lies and manipulations, activity on the internet. We've seen it all and we've tried to prevent it, to explain, we've asked her to stop."
They revealed that Julia has moved out of the family home and has been refusing treatment for mental health issues.
Hinting at her motivations, they added: "Julia once wanted to be a singer, a model. She always wanted to be popular. What's happening now she got one million followers."
But Dr. Johansson, who has worked with law enforcement on several high profile cases around the world, hit back and has urged the family to provide a DNA test to solve any mystery over the girl’s parentage.
The California-based private detective – also known as the Persian Medium – says the DNA test would be the easiest way to solve the case – without having to cause any disruption to the McCann family.
"We are still urging Julia's family to take a DNA test and get in touch with us directly so we can discuss the case with them rather than releasing statements online," Dr Johansson said.
"Some of the information Julia has told us and the evidence we've seen doesn't match what the family are saying so we would like to talk about it directly with them.
"It seems suspicious to me that Julia's family will not take a test, which could clear these claims up very quickly."
Dr. Johansson says she realised she had psychic gifts when she was seven and has worked with law enforcement agencies around the world to help locate the bodies of missing people, solve cold cases and even have wrongly convicted people released from prison.
She told The Sun in a 2020 interview how she had used her "gifts" to help a member of the Royal Family escape a blackmail plot.
In 2019, the psychic made a prediction that Madeleine was still alive and would discover her real identity.
The disappearance of Madeleine in 2007 remains one of the biggest unsolved cases in British history.
The youngster was only three when she vanished from her family's holiday home in Portugal.
Her parents had left her sleeping with her siblings while they had dinner at the hotel's restaurant – before realising at about 10pm that she was missing.
