Who is Julia Wandelt and is she claiming to be Madeleine McCann? | The Sun

JULIA WANDELT came to the world's attention by claiming on social media that she is Madeleine McCann.

There is nothing to suggest there is any truth to her claims. This is what we know about her.

Who is Julia Wandelt?

Julia Wandelt is a 21-year-old from Poland, who claims to be Madeleine McCann.

Wandelt has gone viral after suggesting that she may be the missing child, who disappeared in 2007.

She has also stated her intention to get in touch with Kate and Gerry McCann, as she doesn't remember a lot of her life growing up, and claims to not have any recollection of her childhood.

What has Julia Wandelt said about Madeleine McCann?

She has made her claims on TikTok, under an account called @iammadeleinemccann.

She has claimed that the missing girl’s family have asked her to take a DNA test.

Wandelt has said that she has moles in similar positions to Madeleine and also showed that she had a marking in her eye, similar to Maddie's coloboma, which means her pupil is a different shape.

McCann was born in May 2003 – making her 19 years old now – and Wandelt has claimed her own age of 21 could be incorrect.

A source close to the McCanns told The Mirror: “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.
