LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The 21-year-old Polish woman, Julia Wandelt, who claims she's the missing Madeleine McCann who went missing on May 3, 2007 in Portugal, now believes she could be battling cancer. A psychic and private detective, Fia Johannson is supporting Wandelt's claim and has launched an investigation into the case.


According to Johannson, Wandelt has submitted samples for three different forensic examinations that will outline her DNA sequence, along with a 23andMe-style genetic test which will establish her ancestry, as per News.com.au. She said, "We are still waiting on the result of DNA testing that will show us exactly what Julia’s ethnic background is and what country she and her true family are from. These kinds of tests are very accurate." She added, "Of course depending on the result of that we will continue our investigation to see if Julia is could be Madeleine or another missing person. But now the focus is on Julia as a person - not Madeleine. She has had a neglected childhood and suffered much abuse. Her health is very poor she has bad asthma and she suffers lots of pain in her bones," reports The Sun.

'She could have leukemia'

Johannson further said, “[Wandelt] is booked in for a CT and MRI scan because of the pain in her bones. Her blood work is also abnormal so my doctor here in the US is investigating whether she could have leukemia so we are awaiting the results of that. And if she needs any treatment we will make sure she gets that." Prior to this, Johannson also stated, “People keep asking me why I’m helping her and I don’t understand why people even have to ask this. I am helping a woman in need who asked for help and support. It’s not about money or followers or anything like that - I had that before Julia. The world is a cruel place if people can’t understand a human being helping another human being.”


Where is Julia Wandelt now?

Wandelt reportedly is staying at an undisclosed location in California with Johansson. Wandelt, who also uses the surnames Faustyna and Wendell, attracted global attention after she started posting photos two weeks ago, claiming to be the missing Madeleine McCann, as per Fox News. She said in an Instagram post from her now deleted account, @iammadeleinemccann, "I don't remember most of my childhood but my earliest memory is very strong and It's about holidays in hot place where was beach and White or very light couloured buildings with apartments. I remember that I saw turtles on the beach it was little Bav as I can remember I saw turtles then and there were another children and they tried to touch small turtles. I don't see my family in this memory."

However, many were quick to send some nasty messages and threats to her. To which, Wandelt said, “I can say... thank you for support, these people who supported me and f**k off to people who made me cry. I’m sorry I had to but telling me that I should die, it’s very, very mad. It’s not nice. I didn’t plan it for months to become McCann just because someone said something. You are not in my situation so you can’t say what I should do. I’m not ashamed because this is my past, it’s not about this case. This is the best way I can do for myself and you don’t know me personally, so don’t judge me please," reports News.com.au. 


Madeleine McCann was only 3 when she went missing

On May 3, 2007, three-year-old Madeleine McCann of Rothley, Leicestershire, was vacationing with her family at the Ocean Club in Praia da Luz, Portugal, when she disappeared, BBC reports. On January 20, 2008, some sketches of a suspect were published based on a British vacationer's description of a "creepy man." In May 2013, investigators claimed they had identified "a number of persons of interest." To date, however, they have failed to apprehend any of them.

German investigators have tagged the case as a murder inquiry as they have assumed that Madeleine is dead. In June 2020, police informed that a 43-year-old German prisoner, named by German media as Christian B, was identified as a suspect. The girl's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, thanked police and said, "All we have ever wanted is to find her, uncover the truth and bring those responsible to justice. We will never give up hope of finding Madeleine alive, but whatever the outcome may be, we need to know as we need to find peace."
