Has Madeleine McCann been found? DNA test on child seen in India #Madeline

The Madeleine McCann story has taken another of its occasional twists today, with the news that DNA tests are being carried out on a child spotted in an Indian market. Madeleine’s parents are awaiting the results of the test, which could take a few days.

It’s believed that a British tourist spotted the child and felt that she had a strong resemblance to Madeleine McCann. Madeleine vanished in 2007 during a family holiday in Portugal and would be around 8 years old now. It’s quite hard to see how a tourist in India could be so sure that a little girl spotted in a market is Madeleine, but the claims seem to be being taken seriously.

Although some excitable types have claimed that Madeleine McCann is on the verge of being discovered, such claims should be taken with a pinch of salt.

The McCanns have been the subjects of much scrutiny in recent years. Some people have accused Gerry and Kate McCann of being involved in their daughter’s disappearance, a claim that the couple strongly deny. There have been reported sightings of the girl before, but so far none of them have led to anything. Will this sighting in India be any different?

Update: Girl in India ‘not Madeleine McCann’

  4. I’m skeptical, but I hope they found her. It’s such an awful story, and if they find her alive, it will be an amazing miracle. Fingers are crossed! Thanks for posting this!

  8. Goodluck to the McCann family, it is a tradegy that they have been scrutinised so deeply over the dissaperance of little Madeline – they deserve to find her and she deserves to be found. Please let this be her and end the pain and suffering for both parties. My thoughts are with you. xxxxxxxxxxx

  12. And is every child that has a resemblance to Maddie going to be snatched from their parents in public till the parents can prove it is teir own daughter? this story forgot to point out what happened that day at the market a man actually tried to take this little girl from her parents!! I pray Maddie id found but i do not agree that if a child bears a resemblance which would be almost half the population of 8 year old girls ( blonde hair blue eyes) to start grabbing children from their parents is wrong!! I also pray the poor little girl taht was put through this ordeal is okay!!
