Julia Wandelt shares ONE 'childhood memory' that could prove she is Madeleine McCann
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: A young Polish woman who is trying to prove she is Madeleine McCann has claimed she has childhood memories that appear to tie her to the place the British girl vanished from in 2007. Julia Wandelt, also known as Julia Faustyna and Julia Wendell, recently gave an interview to a daytime talk show and TV series, where she spoke with Dr Phil McGraw.
“Julia says she has no recollection of her earlier childhood, except for one memory," the host reportedly said. "What she remembers is eerily similar to the place where Madeleine McCann was last seen alive.” In response, Julia said, “I have some single memories since eight, nine years old. And before eight, I have only this one memory with beach and water, like sea or ocean, and there were turtles and children trying to catch the turtles and take them in their hands.”

‘Something makes sense’
The 21-year-old also added, “And I remembered light-colored buildings, like white or very light colors, sunlight on this building.” Madeleine was on a holiday with her parents Kate and Gerry McCann in Portugal when she went missing. The family was staying in a holiday home when the incident happened.
Julia was accompanied by Dr Fia Johansson, a private investigator who is helping Julia in finding her real identity, on the show. She reportedly shared, “When I put it all together, I thought, 'Hmm, something makes sense and I need to get into why she remembers just that things.' So that could be one of those memories too that maybe she had at the age of three.” She asserted, “That could possibly be the same building that Madeleine vanished in 2007.”
‘We are looking for justice’
On her Instagram page, Dr Johansson expressed her gratitude toward Dr Phil for being featured. She wrote, “We're not just looking for answers... We are looking for justice for Julia. Thank you to @drphil for having us. I'm looking forward to this young woman getting a platform to speak courageously and call out those who abused her."
“No matter what happens, Julia -- and survivors of sexual violence, assault, and abuse -- deserve Justice and to be heard!" she added, along with the hashtag #justiceforjulia.
Earlier, Dr Johansson also took a stand for Julia and slammed trolls. She said, “To everyone interested in Julia’s search for answers, please understand we are in the middle of an investigation. This is a vulnerable woman seeking answers about her identity and her life. Regardless of your opinions, she is a human being who deserves respect. When everything is done in the investigation in a few weeks, you can learn more, but more now, please respect this woman’s privacy. Her background was challenging and messy. There is no need to spew hatred, judgment, and especially threats toward a person in need. This is unacceptable and needs to stop. Iammadeleinemccan.”
