The Polish woman who claims to be missing toddler Madeliene McCann has now undergone DNA testing as her spokesperson claims she “is definitely not the biological daughter of her parents in Poland”.

Madeleine went missing from her bed at a resort while holidaying with her parents in Portugal on May 3, 2007. The case of the then three-year-old’s disappearance attracted considerable global attention. Despite a long-running investigation, Madeleine’s whereabouts remain unknown to this day.

As questions abound regarding Madeleine’s fate, Julia Faustyna recently emerged with claims that she is the missing toddler, taking to social media with photos and recollections of her childhood to substantiate her claims.

In a recent post to Facebook, Faustyna claimed, “I think I can be Madeleine.”

“I don’t remember my childhood practically at all, but I do have a few memories,” she said.

“The earliest of these are vacations – I remember baby turtles (turtles hatch in May/June just from what I’ve read) and white apartment blocks, a bar where there was a performance by some ladies in costumes (folk costumes, I think, I don’t know), but I completely don’t recall my mother being there, for example, or my stepfather, much less my dad.

“I have a defect in my eye, in the same eye, the kind of defect Madeleine had.

“Except that in my case it’s faded more and more every year. I talked to the doctor and there is a possibility that this defect was operable, and so logically it seems to me that if someone kidnaps a child about whom everyone “trumpets” that he has such a defect in the eye, it seems to me that such a kidnapper will do everything he can to remove or cover up such a defect.

“What I really need is the truth.”

As her claims continue to be refuted by investigators, her family and the general public, the 21-year-old has attempted to find some answers of her own after providing samples for DNA testing.

Private investigator and psychic medium Dr Fia Johansson, who is acting as Faustyna’s spokesperson, revealed to RadarOnline.com that Faustyna has provided several samples to determine her ancestry.

“If the results come back that she’s British or from that area then we are going to continue our investigation into Madeleine McCann and communicate with the detectives in Portugal,” Johansson said.

“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.

“We are still conducting an investigation but Julia is definitely not the biological daughter of her parents in Poland.”

As Faustyna remains committed to the belief that she is the missing toddler, her family recently broke their silence on the matter, denying their daughter’s assertions in a statement issued to the Polish missing person’s organisation, Missing Years Ago.

“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,” the statement read.

“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.

“We are devastated at this current situation. At the same time, we would like to announce that we will not do interviews, publish any photos, comment on articles. Please direct any questions or concerns to the Spokesperson of the Provincial Police Command in Wrocław, who is conducting proceedings in Julia’s case and to whom we have provided all the necessary evidence in this case.”
