A woman who has claimed she is Madeleine McCann has said she is waiting for the results of DNA test to come back to her.

Julia Faustyna, 21, who also goes by the name of Julia Wendell or Julia Wandelt, has said she has been suspicious she was the missing girl for a while.

Madeleine was three years old when she went missing on May 2007 while on holiday in Portugal.

Her disappearance sparked one of the most high-profile missing people searches in history.

Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann have vowed to never give up looking for their daughter.

Woman claims she thinks she is Madeleine McCann

Julia appeared on the Dr Phil talk show in the United States on Monday (March 27) and said she began suspecting she was Madeleine in June last year.

She claimed her mother would change the subject when she brought up her birth, and that her photos and birth certificate were never shown to her, LBC reported.

Additionally, she said a document in Poland that tracks her health as a child has six blank pages at the start.

Dr Phil talked her through photos Julia claims show similarities to Madeleine, including her suggestion that she laughs similarly to the missing girl in one photo.

He asked about her parents, who maintain they are her biological parents, but Julia said her mother "didn't want to show me any proof".

"She says she went to the hospital and gave birth to you," Dr Phil said.

Julia replied: "She said, yes. When I asked her for DNA before this whole situation, when I asked her for some pictures from her pregnancy, some childhood pictures… she refused."

LBC added: "When Dr Phil pushed her on why she had not sent DNA samples to the Met, she said she had tried to contact police in the UK but had not heard back.

"She said nobody listened to her at either the British or Polish embassies so she switched to Instagram to push her claims."

Julia has said she is willing to take any test to prove her suspicions correct.

Julia's parents previously admitted they were devastated by the whole situation in a statement made in February.

Kate and Gerry McCann are yet to make any official statement on the matter.
