LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: A psychic detective, Michael Schneider, who has assisted law enforcement in finding missing people claims to be "100% certain" about whether or not the woman claiming to be Madeleine McCann is in fact the missing person. A 21-year-old Polish woman named Julia Wandelt, also known as Julia Wendell and Julia Faustyna, rose to fame after creating the @iammadeleinemcann Instagram account and posting "evidence" to affirm her status as the missing girl from Leicestershire.


Wandelt's striking likeness to Madeleine—right down to the speck in her eye—has helped her gain hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers. She stated that she had been asked to submit to a DNA test by Kate and Gerry McCann. A McCann family insider stated, "The family are taking no chances, they are willing to look at all leads. It is important they look at all of the factors, the girl does look similar. There’s no disputing that. If what she says is true, there is every chance it could be her. It all adds up," according to Daily Star. Schneider, a German clairvoyant, believes he knows exactly where McCann is and, therefore, whether or not Wandelt is she.

Who is Michael Schneider?

Schneider, a former journalist, began offering his free assistance to investigations in 2006. He has since assisted in at least 25 cases involving the search for the missing. In a statement outlining his work, Schneider explained, "I look at a photo of the missing person or animal and ask myself to God whether the creature is dead or alive and get an answer through my inner voice that is almost always correct."


Schneider had previously provided coordinates for a woman who disappeared in Padenstedt, Germany, in 2021—about 397 kilometres from where he was living at the time. She was discovered just 235 meters from where he indicated, according to JV. He has even identified the precise location where Peter Neumair, 63, and Laura Perselli, 68, who went missing from their Bolzano, Italy, home in January 2021, were discovered.

Is Julia Wandelt Madeleine McCann?

Schneider believes Julia cannot possibly be McCann as he said, "My very clear and 100% certain inspiration on this case is: of course she's not Madeleine, she just wants publicity. Maddie is located in the Algarve in Odiaxere." Schneider regrettably stated that his immediate thought when he initially heard about the McCann case in 2013 was that she was murdered. On numerous occasions, Odiaxere has been mentioned as a possible location for the missing McCann. Two months after McCann vanished, Portuguese police looked into an anonymous letter that suggested she was buried in the village beneath rocks.
