    The Polish woman who thinks she could be Madeleine McCann has reportedly submitted DNA samples that could prove whether she is the missing girl.

    Julia Wendell, 21, is currently in California, US, having been whisked from her home country after receiving death threats.

    She went viral on Instagram after sharing supposed "evidence" to show she is Madeleine, the Leicestershire girl who vanished while on a family holiday in Portugal in 2007.

    Julia's claims are being probed by private detective and self-professed medium Dr Fia Johansson, who is with her at the safehouse in California.

    Speaking to RadarOnline, Dr Johansson said Julia has sent off three DNA samples for forensic analysis as well as a genetic test to establish her ancestry (something akin to 23andMe).

    "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," Dr Johansson told the publication.

    "We have a lot of evidence right now that shows Julia was definitely trafficked to Poland."

    Julia's family in Poland have denied her claims. According to Dr Johansson, her mum and dad have also blocked Julia's number and are refusing to take a DNA test of their own.

    The private detective and her team have been in Wroclaw (the city Julia supposedly grew up in) where she said they found no hospital records for Julia relating to the first five years of her life.

    Julia has claimed she does not remember large parts of her childhood, and that she was never treated as part of the family by her parents or siblings.

    She also said she was abused by a German paedophile who resembled a one-time suspect in Madeleine's disappearance. She supposedly found a family photo of that man in an older relative's house.

    Other "evidence" she has put forward includes a speck in her eye like Madeleine and her allegedly overhearing her mum admit to "taking" her.
